Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue May 22, 2012, 05:05 PM

Hi people. I am uppityperson

Joined 2004 right shortly before the election. I very much appreciated DU then, and also when Katrina happened and am lucky enough to have met a few DUers in person. I am a middle aged female in NW WA state, was going to use "uppityb*" for username but decide to go with the generic "person" to avoid getting pre-judged as female. I finally came out yrs ago when was tired of being addressed with "sir" and the like, usually more negatively connotated. I will snark when snark is needed, but have tried to tone it all down with the move to DU3.

I've been on MIRT and very much enjoyed participating in this way. Being on MIRT has also helped me get my snark under better control. I encourage most everyone to try it out, volunteer when there is an opening.

I've taken several breaks over the yrs. Sometimes from getting too over invested in the place. Sometimes from being tired of the snark and negativity. But I come back. The LBN forum is great, lots of people collecting news from all over, and if I'm not posting much I am reading for that.

Newbies, it can be difficult to get started here as we have a certain amount of people signing up for the sole purpose of disruption. If you are here to positively participate and get accused of otherwise, let it slide off you. Communications on the internets isn't always clear also. If you are here to disrupt, let us know asap please. We appreciate that.

I still don't understand how "check spelling" works before I post to DU, but hey, need some mystery in our lives.

3. Thank you William769, I always think of myself as snarling, but I guess I get that out of my system

before posting. Usually. Not always. So thank you, I appreciate it.

2. Many thought I was male when I first joined...

I was clueless about the profile and the fact that people check it. Once I changed mine, I had a different reception from people.

11. Hi!

I always thought your name had to do with race rather than gender. Either way, I love reading your posts

21. Yes, it is sad.

There's no reason for her to be so nasty to members, though.
