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!
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.
