21. Bullies and thugs on this thread are the real danger to democracy...
Edited on Mon Dec-27-10 12:00 PM by UnitedVoters
Do not listen to these people, Demo Donkey. To me and many others you are one of the true heroines of election reform! It is a disgrace you were attacked like this, especially during the holidays.

The holidays are when elves abound. And elves are similar to trolls except trolls are destructive -- REAL dangers to democracy -- and they abound all year. Now I'm NOT saying specifically that anyone on here is a troll -- I'm just sayin'.

Wilms, Demo Donkey absolutely did NOT do anything to injure your first amendment rights. She -- rightfully -- challenged you to quit harping about the dissatisfaction you claim to have with elections in New York and elsewhere, and get out there and actually DO something about the problems. And I will add that IF you are doing something now (which personally I doubt) then simply have the courage to tell us what it is. Without that disclosure, it is understandable that people might doubt your motivation for participating in this forum, especially when you attack the motivation of others for no good reason.

The DU Election Reform Forum was one of the most productive at one time. There was real organizing here during the aftermath of the 2004 election. But now, we have the barage of attacks against some of our most productive activists, the relentless tag team circular posting like we see on this thread, the overattention to New York and lever machines (which are now gone in the rest of the USA) -- all this is nothing more than a denial of service attack that has turned this forum into an echo chamber for handful of posters, especially since the departure of WYVBC and Voting News.

Sad and disgusting how low the forum has sunk.

Demo Donkey, please keep fighting for what you believe in. Hugs to you and best wishes for a good year in 2011.
