Question About "The Left Column" on the home page

I had a post show up there (which is the coolest thing ever).

How did that happen exactly? What is the criteria?

welcome newest DU Republican (i was number 5 btw)

At Sat Oct 13, 2012, 06:51 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

I made this account for this one post...
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=140595

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

Republican voting for Romney.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sat Oct 13, 2012, 07:07 PM, and the Jury voted 2-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I don't see how either post is disruptive or that it attacks someone. Unless it completely violates the community guidelines to admit being a Republican.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: If we want the GOP point of view, we can read FR. Get out!
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I don't think it was rude.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: We have enough of those here already. This person might be sincere, and at least he is upfron and not trolling, but this is not the place for him.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

damn, biden kicks ryan's ass and a whole bunch of new duers immediately decide they need to share

their concerns that obama will cut social security - even though romney has promised to destroy it - they are concerned that it is obama who will.

again, suddenly, right after ryan's public humiliation.

they are worried allright, but not about social security

GOP: Gays Out of the Party

Here is one of those odd regularities that crop up in American politics: Every election year since at least 1996, about a quarter of gay voters (more precisely, of voters who acknowledge being gay in exit polls) have pulled for the Republican presidential candidate, rain or shine.

Perhaps this is because gay voters have not had a choice between rain and shine. Their choice has been between rain and drizzle. The Republican candidate preferred not to talk about gay issues (ugh! nasty!) and could be counted on, if the issue came up, to take the wrong side. The Democratic candidate, on the other hand, preferred not to talk about gay issues (eek! dangerous!) and could be counted on, if the issue came up, to chicken out and act like a Republican
.....

President Obama started slow on gay rights. He opposed marriage equality, dragged his feet on the military-service ban, and let the Justice Department file a brief defending DOMA that could have been written by his predecessor. But then he made up for lost time. He went out on a limb jurisprudentially by abandoning his legal defense of DOMA. He and the Democratic Congress got the military ban repealed. He used executive authority to provide some benefits for same-sex partners of federal workers. Above all, he came out this year in support of gay marriage — and, in its platform, his party did the same.

.......

We do know this: If any Republican in the 2012 field had the potential to lead the party away from its growing isolation on gay equality, it was Mitt Romney. By choosing instead to pander to the anti-gay right, he made gay voters’ choice easier, and Democrats’ future brighter.
