DU 2014 NCAA Pool on Yahoo

I renewed the DU Pool so if you were in last year you should have received an invitation from Yahoo. If you want to join go to this link:

https://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/quickenloansbracket

Click on "Find a Pool" then select "Join a private pool". The pool ID #262585 and the password is "dupool2014".

You can also PM me with your email address and I will send an invitation that has a link you can click.

According to Yahoo the deadline for entering brackets is 1:00 AM ET on March 20. This is earlier that previous years when you could enter brackets anytime before the start of the first games on Thursday.

Good luck everyone!

It is DU March Madness Time Again

I set up Yahoo Fantasy NCAA pool for DU members and friends. Just follow this link:

http://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/t1/register/joinprivategroup_assign_team?GID=61752&P=dupool2013

In case that doesn't work go to the main Yahoo Fantasy site and find pool ID 61752. The password is "dupool2013" You can enter up to two brackets but I think Yahoo limits you to five total for all pools. You can name brackets now and they will be open after the field is set tomorrow. The scoring is the same custom scoring used in previous years.

Please sign this WH petition to make Birthers pay for wasting tax dollars.

(Cross posted from GD)

The petition is self-explanatory:

Mandate the AG to seek sanctions, costs, and attorneys' fees to recover taxpayer funds used to defend birther lawsuits.

Full text:

Hundreds of repetitious and frivolous lawsuits have been filed challenging President Obama's status as a natural born citizen. These lawsuits have clogged up the courts and cost the taxpayers millions of dollars in court costs and attorneys' fees.

We, the taxpayers, respectfully petition for an Executive Order or directive to the Attorney General to seek to recover taxpayer funds expended in defending frivolous Birther lawsuits by requesting sanctions, costs, and attorneys' fees in each and every pending or future case.

Could we stop with the satire for a while?

In the last five minutes I have seen several "Joe the Plumber is Dead" posts and a "Romney wins Ohio Post". Tomorrow is going to be a long day followed by a long night. People are always on edge at these times. Let's respect our fellow DU'er's and resist the temptation of posting misleading and satirical stuff until we can all celebrate on Wednesday. People will be coming to DU get the news tomorrow night especially and the last thing they need is to see a bunch of "gotcha" posts.

Question on the new "Greatest" Page

On the old DU you could go to the "Greatest" page, read a post, then go right back to the "Greatest" page. How do you do that on the new DU? It appears you have to click on "Latest Threads" then go back to "Greatest". This seems inefficient.
