Time for DU to move on to the GE!!
Edited on Sat May-17-08 09:32 AM by ClassWarrior
Ready to move on to the General Election? Well, the Mods aren't ready to close down GD-P yet, but -- as far as I can tell -- there's nothing stopping us from taking GE discussions to the General Discussion forum. There, we'll be free to make plans for a November Dem victory, safe in the knowledge that those still agitating over an already-decided primary are limited to posting about it in GD-P.

Who's with me?

NGU.

1. Good idea
Time to focus on the real enemy. We need a big victory in November.

2. A) Is this allowed? B) What is stopping the DISRUPTORS from this
forum from disrupting the conversations we try to have OVER THERE, like they do over here?

I noticed our calls for a separate forum where we can concentrate on McCain fell on deaf ears and we got no response that I know of.

This place serves NO PURPOSE at this point except to provide aid to McCain and the RW, to distract Obama supporters, and to make laughingstock of the democratic activist base.

3. As I said, as far as I could discover, there's nothing preventing it.
And DISRUPTORS will DISRUPT, but at least we know that over there they'll get TSed if they try to drag the old news of the primaries into it.

5. This actually is a good idea.
Stop feeding the rancor, fighting over spilled milk. Let the angry ones wear themselves out over here.

8. It seems to me..
that DU is slowly but surely moving in that direction on its own. Sure, there are some die hards, but they're dwindling in numbers.

10. Why is this such a big deal? Who cares?
So the election is forum is called primaries for now. Soon there will be a new title. Details, details. Who cares?

13. Because once it changes names, the disruptors...
...who the Mods are -- intentionally or not -- coddling here, will get tombstoned for disrupting.

11. There Is Certainly No Reason, Sir, Not To Post Attacks On McCain And Republicans In This Forum

30. Unfortunately, here they sink like rocks.
They disappear from the front-page within 30 minutes.

Perhaps they will get more consideration over in GD, where people aren't just looking for the newest, juciest dirt on the fight for the Democratic nomination.

12. If we can't have GD-GE
Put the well known disruptors on ignore, and transform GD-P into the forum we want. It's time to move on. This election is far more important.

14. Sorry, but I refuse to censor ANYBODY. If the Mods are going to let it...
...to get nasty enough to make me consider that, I'd rather just leave.

17. I believe it's irresponsible to "look the other way" when wrongs occur.
I'd rather see those who commit wrongs be held responsible for their actions.

Two wrongs still don't make a right.

15. I am hoping the Admins are seeing what everyone else is seeing
and shifts from the primary board.

trying to bully the Admins.

That'll work.

Not.

28. I can tell you that I have been smacked in the face repeatedly by Hillary supporting goons
Edited on Sun May-18-08 01:40 PM by nomad1776
Every time I have extended an olive branch. If you want to call that bullying, then we agree.

24. Real Democrats are already on my side. I'm just recommending...
... arrangements that let people feel comfortable debating what's important to them without all the hard feelings and emotions getting in the way -- at least until we've had a chance to heal.

What's wrong with that? :shrug:

27. I'll meet you over there.
Although I think it's a shame we'll have to take over GD and make it so politics-focused. On the other hand, we can't stay here and our pleas for a forum to discuss the general election have been met with silence.

So... allons-y!
