138. Good question Don.
First, of course, a single mod can't lock a thread without consensus. So if someone alerted on a thread that said that, we'd take a look at it and many mods would weigh in before any action.

If I was around for the discussion, I'd probably chime in, pointing out it might be a bit of a "card trick" post, because the notion that the UAW would endorse anyone else is silly on its face. Then we'd probably talk about the poster's history to see if they're an obvious Obama supporter being funny, or a union diehard holding his feet to the fire, or what-have-you. Then we'd look at the wording of DU rules, and ask one another if "withdrawing support" is the same as "advocating defeat."

So given that, were you a mod, what action would you have supported? :hi:
