Can I get a Moderator to explain why this thread "How Obama can Adress his former heavy cocaine use"
Hasnt been locked yet? I know numerous amounts of people who have alerted but to no avail. First of all it starts out slandering Obama by referring to his drug use as Heavy when there have been no evidence to support that fact at all and because of that and what it says has turned into one giant flamebait.

Is this apparently a reasonable thread, cuz I think its horseshit.

13. Since there isn't so much as a whisper about this
I figure you figured that lying and sliming is just the right image for your candidate.

When you can provide me a link, a witness, or a confession, we'll talk.

Until then, is Creeps for Kucinich attracting a wide following?

You know.

And thank you for asking about Kucinich, I know he would be honored.

4. They don't notice any similarity at all.
The hypocrisy is almost endearing.

5. Show me some proof
When did an Obama supporter accuse Hilalry Clinton of something like this?

Oh, right. They haven't.

Stay classy, Chappaqua!

14. that thread sucks, but if you can't see that there's been far more
numerous and far worse threads against Clinton- whether started by Obama supporters or not- you're blinded by partisanship.

2. I second this sentiment
The post in question makes very serious and unproven allegations against a Democratic candidate, and is thoroughly sleazy in tone and intent. It needs to be locked, if not deleted.

7. Moderators work in consensus with one another...
It's a group decision...

They may have decided that this thread is OK...

Or they may not ...

Or they might be horribly busy with some other threads...

Who knows?

22. Sometimes it takes literally an hour or more to make a decision.
I did a term as a Moderator, and I speak from my own experience...

It's not easy, or simple to come to a decision...

17. WTF?? You're not supposed to call moderators out or threads out like that, genius
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 07:23 PM by mtnsnake
If a thread is bugging the shit out of you, just friggin alert on it for chrise sake and accept whatever happens. If it's still driving you crazy, PM a mod if you really want to know, instead of crying about it in public.

Good gawd you think the earth revolves around you or something.

24. You're not supposed to this, You're not supposed to that
I see it as me being a citizen on DU who wants some answers from the officials of the government. I'm not calling out one person, because that would be calling somebody out.
