General Discussion (Forum): About This Forum

Discuss politics, issues, and current events. No posts about Israel/Palestine, religion, guns, showbiz, or sports unless there is really big news. No conspiracy theories. No whining about DU.

Forum hosts are regular DU members who meet certain eligibility requirements. Any DU member who meets these requirements may volunteer to serve as a forum Host. If no Hosts are assigned to a particular forum, the DU Administrators serve as Hosts. Forum Hosts have one responsibility: They lock threads which they believe violate the forum's Statement of Purpose.

The General Discussion forum has a maximum quota of 20 Hosts. Hosts cannot serve for more than 90 consecutive days. Current Hosts of this forum:
