Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Everyone here should buy a 50 gal drum of salt [View all]

I appreciate what DU can bring to the table as far as links to less reported stories, some insightful reasoning and points of view and the rest.

But I also realize one must take most things seen on here with a huge grain of salt--shovels worth of salt, at times.

There are long time posters with many posts to their names that have wonderfully edifying things to say. But those same posters can go off the deep end on a particular topic and become downright unreasonable.

There are new posters who often say things of great value, and they can be overlooked at times. I know I've fallen into the habit of engaging with negative personalities or posting with emotion rather than reason.

We don't all have to agree or disagree on every topic, but we can try to hold ourselves to a higher standard of writing and effort at making our points.

For new low post count people trying to contribute and to long time lurkers....we need your voices. Don't let the perceived authority of a few more vocal posters stop you from posting your great thoughts.
