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:

"The only answer is potato." This is a cultural reference to mentally handicapped children. It has no place here. See: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/i-can-count-to-potato “I Can Count to Potato” is a controversial catchphrase that is meant to indicate a lack of intelligence and usually paired with photographs of people who appear to have been diagnosed with learning disabilities. The phrase is sometimes used in image boards and forums in reacting to comments that are deemed unintelligent. Due to the insensitive nature of the meme, it has been criticized for perpetuating ableism, a type of discrimination against people with disabilities.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Tue Dec 18, 2012, 06:22 PM, and the Jury voted 0-6 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Alerting poster is making a big assumption: that the offending poster is aware of this being a discriminatory reference. My impression is the offending post was meant as humor. The alerter would do well to ask for clarification, before making a negative assumption and alerting.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Dumb question deserved a stupid answer. Please! stop the stupid, people. You are making my head hurt.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Can we tombstone the person who sent this alert? An insult that requires two Google searches to find is a little too esoteric.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Quite a stretch there.

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