Poll question: POLL: Should the term "bitch" be forbidden on DU in certain circumstances?
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 12:00 PM by Skinner
On Democratic Underground, should we forbid the use of the term "bitch" when used as an insult against our political opponents, and should we forbid the phrase "bitch slap"?

Please be aware that we are not going to forbid the use of the term "bitch" as a synonym for "complain bitterly," nor will we forbid the term "bitch" to mean "female dog." Those issues are not up for a vote. Also, to be clear... personal attacks against other members of Democratic Underground are not permitted, so it is already against the rules to call another member of DU a bitch.

You are not permitted to post in this thread, because the discussion would likely get too long for members to download. Any posts in this thread will be deleted. You are encouraged to discuss the issue in this thread, which has been provided for that purpose. We also strongly advise you to review that thread, and the eight other threads on this topic, BEFORE YOU VOTE HERE, so you can familiarize yourself with this issue.

This poll will remain open until 9:30AM ET, Thursday, April 8, 2003.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

8. We're going to cut this vote short.
I was going to post my explanation here, but upon reflection we have decided to open yet another new thread.
