42. Locking
'Third party' advocacy is not allowed in this site.

Here is the rule on the subject, for those who seem to have a hard time remembering it:

Democratic Underground may not be used for political, partisan, or advocacy activity by supporters of any political party or candidate other than the Democratic Party or Democratic candidates. Supporters of certain other political parties may use Democratic Underground for limited partisan activities in political races where there is no Democratic Party candidate.
