If I wanted to point out that I thought a Democratic leader was a womanizer, would that be OK?
I want to make sure that it's OK before I post anything, because I don't want to cause trouble or break the rules about supporting candidates. The reasons I would do so might be any of these:

1. To prevent a possible scandal that may erupt post-primary.
2. To generally protect the reputation of the party by showing that this behavior is not condoned.
3. To avoid alienating people who may be offended by this behavior from the Democratic Party by dealing with it.

It is not unknown here to rebuke our Democratic representatives for distasteful, inappropriate, corrupt, or illicit conduct (Rod Blagojevich, for instance); I'd like to get some input, especially from the mderators, about whether or not I could post an opinion here about it, or whether it would detract from the purpose of this forum in acting to support the Democratic Party.

We all know that Bill Clinton was a womanizer.
What's the point?

3. Why don't you ask the mods or admins directly instead of playing games?
Nevermind, I already know the answer.

8. If you would suggest a better way, I could try it.
There's no feature to directly contact the mods aside from hitting the "alert" button, and even then, I'd probably have to post something first. The "Ask the Administrators" forum has been down for some years now.

4. We don't condone womanizing?
I thought we had no position either way on anybody's private sexuality.

6. If you really wanted to know, wouldn't you email the admins?
Just say it, whatever it is.

It'll be a topic soon enough.
