9. FYI, someone alerted on you
At Wed May 16, 2012, 10:02 PM an alert was sent on the following post:
Women, more than men, know the right buttons to push to incite violence
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>.)
"Women, more than men, know the right buttons to push to incite violence"
this is simply astounding
Violence in response to speech is not "incited", it is a choice made by the person who uses violence.
Blaming victims of violence at DU?
It just multiplies ... "If you keep insulting someone who is mad, you're going to get hit most of the time unless that person is zen guy." ... "The other half needs to be taught to watch how far they push the situation."
who knows whether the poster is "just a bad bad evil man" ... but this sure is a bad bad evil post
There are women victims of violence at DU who were told by their partners that they caused the violence they suffered. Should they have to be told it at DU? and please, should there be forums at DU they have to stay out of in order to protect themselves from it? I hope not.
You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Wed May 16, 2012, 10:17 PM, and the Jury voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT.
Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: This is often unconscious learned behaviour, learned as children from dysfuntional parents. Hiding the thread won't make it go away, it has to be talked about.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: This is an entirely appropriate post in the men's forum. It is not an attack on any DUer and it is not directed at any DU'er. Men have the same right to explore the domestic violence issue as women. Poster may or may not be wrong, but he is certainly not disruptive or inappropriate.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: Poor wording, perhaps not intentional, leads me to vote "hide". Could be offensive or over the top regarding gender and issues of violence.
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: Poster may as well have saved keystrokes and said "look what that bitch made me do." Disgusting, over the top.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.
