About Me

I am the same DU member who formerly posted under the name FlyingSquirrel (no space) on DU2. If you are reading this as the result of an alert: I have never once claimed that I will not vote for the Democratic nominee this November. Ask for a link and read carefully. :)

I was on a jury and never got back results.

Earlier today.. don't remember everything about it, it was a post by a DU'er who had been here since 2001(I think) with low post count, freaking out about all the election fraud/intimidation etc. The alerter was saying we needed to lock it cause it would depress turnout - some were calling the poster a troll, others were sympathetic. Anyone have a link to the post? Or know what happened? Would I not get an email if the post was simply deleted instead of hidden? I voted to leave it and said we didn't need to censor such posts and that they would drop on their own.

Repost from GD: RILTRu Awards coming soon(?)

On DU2, I took over the DUzy awards for a short time before life intervened and I had to take a hiatus from DU. Hosting the DUzy's was fun, but what I like even better than humor is essential truth. (Of course, humor is often good for pointing out truth - but what I saw a lot of times in the DUzy's were just people angling for an award for the sake of attention.)

So, I'd like to propose a new weekly item here on DU: The RILTRu award. It stands for:

"Reply I'd Like To Recommend" and it's pronounced "Real True".

To recommend a reply in a thread, either PM me with the link, or reply to the post with with "RILTR" as in, "That's a RILTR!" Or RILTRu if you prefer. I'll do a site search on the term.

To get the ball rolling, here's my first "RILTR":

In the thread "Dolan took a swipe at the LGBT community and marriage equality in his prayer at the DNC." by Zorra,

(Occasional humorous comments also welcome if they illustrate an essential truth.)
