66. I said I would ask on GD: Politics (Primaries) because this is certainly a campaign issue
Edited on Thu Feb-14-08 06:47 PM by Leopolds Ghost
And between now and March 4th is the perfect time to focus our energies on something more productive (and important to our children and grandchildren) than tearing down an opposing Democratic candidate.

That being said, I'm assuming a stickie thread on the FISA law would go on
GD. But I've seen stickies crossposted by the admins when it was an issue
they feel Dems should care deeply enough about.

  -I Ask Again, Where's the FISA Stickie Thread? Why Won't DU/Admins Take a Stand? Leopolds Ghost  Feb-14-08 04:25 PM   #0 
  - Perhaps your energy would be better spent  southlandshari   Feb-14-08 04:27 PM   #1 
  - Yeah, those veiled threats are a real swift way to rally people, too!  MADem   Feb-14-08 04:32 PM   #4 
  - veiled threats?  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 04:36 PM   #7 
     - I am going to STOMP MY FOOT and SPAM THE FORUMS until I get MY way!!!  MADem   Feb-14-08 04:48 PM   #13 
  - Some of us are asking DUers (mods/admins) to create a sticky thread  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 04:41 PM   #9 
     - What will a stickie thread accomplish?  southlandshari   Feb-14-08 05:02 PM   #24 
        - It'll be one-stop-shopping  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 05:10 PM   #27 
        - Correct.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:17 PM   #31

  - It's not nice to "call out" the DU admins.  MADem   Feb-14-08 04:29 PM   #3 
  - There are certain DUers who see this as a "fringe issue" not worthy of their attention.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 04:35 PM   #5

  - What's this got to do with the primaries?  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 04:41 PM   #8 
  - DUers are distracted by the primaries. Every FISA thread on GD has died a horrible death  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 04:43 PM   #11 
     - so PM the admins  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 04:48 PM   #14

                 - You know the admins? You seem to be very sure that the admins take an extreme right stance on this.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:18 PM   #32 
                    - You're becoming very obnoxious.  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 05:24 PM   #33 
                       - This is about the fact that every FISA thread has died and a significant minority of the responses  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:30 PM   #35 
                       - If the threads died  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 05:33 PM   #36 
                          - And what's that?  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:34 PM   #37 
                       - He sure does--I asked for a list of these DU wingnuts...  MADem   Feb-14-08 05:41 PM   #39 
                          - Clever.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:54 PM   #41

                                - You're asking me to call them out.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:02 PM   #46 
                                   - Uh, that's what THIS THREAD DOES, when you make DEMANDS of the admins.  MADem   Feb-14-08 06:11 PM   #50 
                                      - I didn't call them assholes, I said they are probably worried about offending people like you  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:18 PM   #58 
                                         - Oh, get OVER yourself. You're acting like an ass.  MADem   Feb-14-08 06:23 PM   #60 
                                            - Nice fear-mongering. You seem to think I have some beef with someone  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:35 PM   #63 
                                               - You did edit as I stated. Nice attempt at deflection.  MADem   Feb-14-08 06:53 PM   #68 
                                                  - "Not everyone has the same level of interest in your choice topics. If you dont like that tough s**"  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 07:08 PM   #71

     - The house just killed FISA  IndieLeft   Feb-14-08 04:51 PM   #16

  - You're not supposed to "call out" other DUers.  Bucky   Feb-14-08 04:46 PM   #12 
  - Nowhere did I impugn their integrity.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 04:50 PM   #15 
     - Now, that's bullshit--upthread you said a bunch of DUers SUPPORTED warrentless wiretapping.  MADem   Feb-14-08 04:54 PM   #20 
        - I was NOT referring to the Admins  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 04:58 PM   #22 
           - You're trying to change the subject. You said a bunch of DUers--not "admins"--DUers  MADem   Feb-14-08 05:13 PM   #29 
              - I am not going to bug Admins privately about this. As a onetime admin of a site, that is tiresome.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:24 PM   #34 
                 - You should read the DU rules--you're breaking a BUNCH of them.  MADem   Feb-14-08 05:38 PM   #38 
                    - You said: "you do a LOUSY job of making your case" against the FISA law  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:46 PM   #40 
                    - Listen to yourself.  MADem   Feb-14-08 05:56 PM   #42 
                       - I said I would keep replying to threads to keep them from sinking in a sea of primary bickering.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:59 PM   #44 
                          - Now you are telling a BLATANT untruth. And you're editing your posts to cover it, too.  MADem   Feb-14-08 06:03 PM   #47 
                             - That is certainly not the meaning of the OP.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:13 PM   #51 
                                - Yeah, you wrote it, and you edited it. NT  MADem   Feb-14-08 06:14 PM   #54 
                                   - I said I would ask on GD: Politics (Primaries) because this is certainly a campaign issue  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:45 PM   #66 
                                      - It's NOT a campaign issue. It's an issue that WAS before the Congress.  MADem   Feb-14-08 06:58 PM   #70 
                                         - Spread disinfo much? It IS a campaign issue and it IS still before the Congress.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 07:10 PM   #72 
                    - It's not serious unless it gets a sticky  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 05:57 PM   #43

                       - From his edited OP  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 06:14 PM   #53 
                          - Heheheheheheh!  MADem   Feb-14-08 06:17 PM   #57 
                          - You and MADem sure like to mock blog activism  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:23 PM   #59 
                             - No  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 06:27 PM   #62 
                                - What is ridiculous about saying DU should take an official stand on this bill?  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:38 PM   #64 
                                   - Stop trying to read people's minds  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 06:43 PM   #65 
                                      - Funny, you didn't seem disappointed in the least  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:51 PM   #67 
                                         - I will be deeply disappointed  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 07:32 PM   #76

                          - A bunch of nerds  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 06:16 PM   #56 
                          - Every FISA thread before the Senate vote got almost no page views or replies  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 06:26 PM   #61 
                             - And you've decided that it is up to YOU to be "Net Nanny" and tell everyone what the  MADem   Feb-14-08 06:57 PM   #69 
                                - I'm not a relativist. Some issues are more important, fundamentally, morally, legally.  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 07:12 PM   #73 
                                   - Because YOU say so? I think NOT.  MADem   Feb-14-08 07:22 PM   #75 
                          - Too many primary threads in GD:Primaries?  MonkeyFunk   Feb-14-08 06:15 PM   #55 
  - Agree wholeheartedly; this is a perfect DU Activism issue that unfortunately will never be...  Melinda   Feb-14-08 05:00 PM   #23 
     - You're welcome :-)  Leopolds Ghost   Feb-14-08 05:05 PM   #26
