What do we do about bloggers who admit to "working" DU? (i.e. - deception)
This was originally posted by XXXXXX on her site, but then she deleted it after she probably realized how she didn't want to destroy what little credibility she has left.

There is still a copy of her post here, however:

http://www.partizane.com/?p=368#respond



I just listened in on an old friends first talk radio show. XXXXXXXXX, formerly of DU and now a fixture on Capital Hill, had a call in on Blog Talk Radio and will have another next week, I think.

Her site is No We wont and she expresses our feelings very well. She was an Edwards supporter who realized during the NH debate that JE was up to no good and teaming up against Hillary. Her reasoning for refusing to vote for Obama includes nothing about Hillary because I think for most of us it is no longer about Hillary, it is about us, the voters being ignored. It is as that caller said, our votes were robbed.

I also got to hear another support I love, XXXXXXXX who was the first to invite me to an off blog private list. We worked DU together for a year and I had never heard her voice. Yeah, everyone does that, even those pristine pure bamaziods.

Kinda funny that I call XXXXXXXXX an old friend. We were blog buddies on DU for a long time then when I went to Rhode Island to canvass a nice woman walked up and asked if I was XXXXXX. XXXXXXX and I canvassed for a day together which makes us blood brethren of the primary wars.

Check out her show next time. Ill announce it here.

Others need to check out Blog Talk Radio and other ways to keep the movement going.

3 Cheers for XXXXXXXX

1. That person has not been served a pizza yet.
Edited on Mon Jul-14-08 10:24 PM by newmajority
I imagine the account has been left open in hope of a little November gloat fest. But I'd say her intentions of opposing the nominee are rather obvious.

And sickening..... :puke:

And Donald deserves a pizza too, if he still posts here. Which I suspect he does.

2. I called the staffers out here on DU 6 months ago
Edited on Mon Jul-14-08 10:23 PM by Gman
and was greeted with gasps and disbelief that any DU'er would ever accuse another of being a staffer working DU and the other liberal websites....

I can't believe that anyone would think any campaign would ignore spamming liberal websites. Some of the most rabid Obama supporters were just too rabid and it was obvious they were being paid to do it.

I will not name names now.

7. I think I still have some tar and feathers in the garage
Actually the feathers roost atop the garage - and the birds are still using them so that's out. I have grass clippings, will they do?

I have some molasses, so if you'll bring the grass clippings, then we should be able to syrup-and-clippings these heretics.

Now he's expected to deal with all the info our very own Nancy Drews turn up about what people might be up to somewhere else on the Internets.

13. The account is still active
Which technically means they "do" still post here, even though they may not have, for the last month or so. Perhaps (as I said before) because, assuming their efforts to defeat the Democratic Nominee succeed, such people would have the ability to have a gloatfest here in November (or in the minds of the most delusional PUMA's, August, when the Tooth Fairy will descend from the Heavens and magically flip all the Superdelegates to Hillary :eyes: )

24. So what? This stalking of people off of DU is creepy.
Care to bare your off-DU posting habits so that we can scrutinize them and make sure that your not breaking rules off of DU?

You've only been here since January...really, there's so much for you to learn. The main thing is that this is JUST AN INTERNET FORUM.

27. This is the only political board I post at.
Edited on Mon Jul-14-08 11:13 PM by newmajority
So you wouldn't find much ammo to use against me, and you certainly wouldn't find me campaigning for the Repuke party candidates.

What was that thing Rodeoclown had going? "Shoe leather for McCain" or something dumb like that?

Anyway, what's this about your red underwear?? :evilgrin:

This is a 3rd party post talking about a DUer' blog radio show?

36. Seems to me the only person here who needs a reality check is
you . . .

Get a grip. The rules of DU extend to DU, not beyond. It doesn't matter if the person you have your panties in a wad about is talking about sacrificing babies to whomever it is you think they support - as long as they are not doing it at DU.

This purity police shit really needs to stop.

38. Gotcha. So she joined in 2005, two years before the primaries...
to establish a persona, all because Hillary asked her to.

Insane.

Almost as insane as starting a thread identical to the one that was locked two days ago.

Just curious...how many threads have you started that have NOT been locked? At DU, that is?

42. There were DLC trolls here in 2004.
A whole flock of them arrived here at once to declare war on Howard Dean and his supporters, actually. Some of them went dormant until Hillary launched her campaign.

I'm sure you were "lurking" then, right?

44. I read the board frequently during the 2004 race, but never signed up.
It was pretty easy to see who was on what team though.

I knew what I was getting into here when I signed up, but I think it's been 5 times as brutal in here as what I remember.

39. meh. what they do away from here doesn't bug me
they are part of a subculture now, like foot fetishists or people who seek out vinyl copies of pre-1966 Streisand (especially never-released tracks from concerts at the hungry i). Happily, the primaries are over and their disruption has, at least for now, ended.
