Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Response to joshcryer (Reply #178)

179. "others elsewhere on DU would not represent the primary posters in that forum

You wrote, "...I do not believe it should've been allowed to go on for long as most of the participants are E&E regulars, and votes from others elsewhere on DU would not represent the primary posters in that forum, which is why I am fine that the Host was chosen before some "set period" of voting was done."

That is one of my central points. Those who oppose nuclear power are inclined to avoid EE because of the abuse from nuclear supporters that goes along with posting there. The only reason I've persevered is the fact that I've been doing research on the methods used by the nuclear industry to promote their product to an unsuspecting public.

So when you point to the hand you've helped deal from a deck you helped stack, it is a less than persuasive argument.
