34. We've seen PR and single-issue posters come and go here. Now, it's a lot of DNC wannabes.
Not sure it's just local colonies of interest that get aroused by certain topics. There seem to be several F/T social media DC staffer types active on this board. Some of them quite hard working and have accumulated staggering post counts, so as a practical matter, they're part of this place. They're obviously tracking and responding in a coordinated fashion to their issue areas.
Some are also quite well-informed, and I enjoy hearing what these individuals have to say and have learned from some of them. That was particularly true right after the Fukushima and the BP disasters occurred when there were (what seemed to be) some real experts with scientific training thrown into the fray. But, even they were opinionated louses whose bad-mouthing of critics got to be tedious.
We also get our assortment of foreign posters and regional regime change boosters here. I think they contribute a great deal by posting videos and articles that few of us would otherwise see. If for no other reason than "know thine enemy", they play a constructive role, even if the content is largely transparent agitation propaganda and disinformation. Same thing for some DNC/WH/3rd Way bloggers.
It's the nasty little thought-followers, ideologues, creeps and cretins who swarm in behind them -- with nothing of any substance or originality to add -- who should get 86ed.
