I think it should take fewer hidden posts to temporarily stop posting privileges if you arent a paid

member. Paid/contributing members are invested in the success of the website and I think the additional privilege is appropriate.

And I think the algorithm is already built into DU. If your chance of serving on a jury goes to zero, you lose posting privileges. I know there are other things that figure into that algorithm and that's fine. A contributing member who posts frequently would then get the benefit of the five hides and others would get less than that.

#YallQaeda / #VanillaISIS / #YokelHaram in Oregon have a new flag:

‪#‎YallQaeda‬ ‪/ #‎VanillaISIS‬ waging #YeeHawd to make a #Cattlephate and are running into some



Oregon 'terrorists' don't plan siege very well, put out plea for snacks and supplies


Can you spare some beef jerky for #YeeHawd?

I guess BLM is officially a good organization again?


Anyone else have technical difficulties after the last commercial break? The debate came back

in the middle of Bernie's closing statement.

Did this happen to anyone else? Might have just been TWC here in NYC.

PPP Iowa Poll has Hillary up 18 points


On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton continues to be the clear favorite in Iowa. She’s
at 52% to 34% for Bernie Sanders and 7% for Martin O’Malley. Sanders leads 47/40 with
younger voters, but that’s not enough to make up for Clinton holding a 64/20 advantage
with seniors. She leads by pretty similar margins of 19 points with liberals at 56/37 and
22 points with moderates at 52/30. And she also has comparable leads with both women
(21 points at 55/34) and men (15 points at 49/34). Clinton’s favorability rating is 73/19
while Sanders’ comes in at 65/23.

xPost from AA: Imperfect Accusers: A sad example of bias against African American Rape Victims


The trial of Daniel Holtzclaw, a police officer accused of sexually assaulting more than a dozen poor, black women, has failed thus far to make a large impact on the national stage. Now one local group of activists is determined to fill the void.

A little over a year ago, after multiple felony sexual battery and rape charges were filed against former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw, the story made national headlines.

The allegations were shocking - the uniformed officer allegedly sexually assaulted multiple women after stopping them in the course of his duties, targeting ones from a poorer, predominantly African-American part of the city. Over the course of the investigation, the number of accusers grew to 13. Holtzclaw currently faces 36 charges, including felony sexual battery, rape, forcible oral sodomy and stalking.

He was fired from the force in January.
