17. If you have questions about policies
Edited on Mon Nov-07-11 06:57 PM by SecularMotion
we have the Ask the Administrators forum

DU is a moderated forum for Democratic liberals and progressives. There's no free speech here, but the rules and limits are fairly reasonable.

I see the R/T group as home for all who are interested in the role religion plays in our society, politics and the world. Unfortunately, it is also a dumping ground for any religious flame wars that start in GD.
