Is my time on DU over?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Warren Stupidity (a host of the General Discussion forum).

YOUR COMMENTS:

This is what is wrong with DU. It has been overrun with users who will tell those that don't agree with them that they don't belong on this site. The user only had 380 post at the time of this alert and telling me that my views don't reflect DU. If that isn't an personal attack on another DU memeber then, maybe my time here is done and these users can reshape DU to be a my way or the highway site. You decide!

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Tue Jul 9, 2013, 07:13 AM, and voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT ALONE.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: agree with alerter's words - personal attack on another DUer. Get rid of the post.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: Agree with alerter. What gives this clown the right to say who stays and who goes?
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: It's a fine post. Nothing wrong with it except the alerter is butthurt.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT and said: I agree with the poster about a generation-specific fear of communism. But I agree MORE with the plaintiff here, that telling someone to "get out" is totally inappropriate for an inclusive party member. We can have our differences but we don't have to be exclusionary dicks about it. I'd suggest that the plaintiff stand up for him/herself, understand the point is "understood," and then school the newb on how to conduct constructive argument in an inclusive environment like DU. I usually only vote to 'Hide' when someone rejects difference by trying to force someone out of DU.

3. Link to the alerted post, since it's pointless without it:

It seems to me your "They are still communist ahnd still looking to take down the US DUDE!" comment was seen as a relic of a bygone era. That poster has been on DU for over a year - I think it's time to accept that someone here for that long does have some idea about the site. It's a bit rude to suggest you should take it to RW sites, but you have to admit an obession about 'communist Russia' isn't something you see often here. After all, it's completely wrong.

4. You're not a politician, your participation in a system is not up for popular vote

 

I saw your posts in the thread in question; shallow, red-scare nonsense, I feel. However, if you are in the habit of tucking tail and running just because somebody feels as much, I don't have much to suggest to you. That said, I would still advise you to go back to that thread and tell the relative newbie that it's not their place to suggest what your place is, and you'll post wherever you damn well please. Following that, you might try to back up your points with more solid arguments that weren't cribbed from a speech by Senator McCarthy or some other professional redscarist, and you might not attract the aforementioned sentiments. Have you no sense of decency?

PS: the scary watchword of the present generation is "TERRORIST", not "COMMIE". The substitution is made somewhat effortlessly, as many of the same tactics and public relations campaigns used to justify government policy in a previous era are being recycled for the present, with very few words necessarily altered in the new recital. Just a suggestion.
