My thread was completely deleted and I can't imagine why?
I posted a thread challenging what I thought was short-sighted progressives who appeared to be applying a tea-party like purity test and are willing to ditch Obama and the Democratic Party entirely (ala Ralph Nader circa 2000) rather than actively support both in the short term and work like hard the right has for 40 years to broaden the appeal of the progressive vision.

Any reason that would prompt a deletion?

Sent a note to the admins on this as instructed, but I have had no reply.

Thanks.

6. In Before The Lock.
Continuation of a locked thread or questioning mods posts are always locked/deleted.

8. I can understand deleting this one more than the other.
I can't imagine why they'd delete my first thread. I'm amazed.

12. What forum? GD?
When you try to link from 'My DU' does it say Missing Topic or is the thread just locked?

16. Because posting OPs this incendiary is against TOS. You are not being "singled out".
How old are you?

10. Maybe you sounded like you were looking for a fight?
And to many of us it is the "On Message" posters that are mostly doing the "dividing", calling the names, getting nasty....
Just look at your OP. It has multiple stereotypes that are simply untrue and attempts to lable others here as "Tea-baggers". You think that is not divisive and unproductive?

19. A teabag like purity test is a perfectly reasonable thing to object to...
... other than the fact that the tea baggers seem to have abandoned that approach as full of FAIL. In MA, they are supporting a liberal Republican. Hope the progressives can agree that's the right move in red states.

Otherwise, we will never win red states.

21. Yeah, I think calling other Democrats 'teabaggers' or comparing them to 'teabaggers' needs to go the
way of calling people 'freepers.'

11. My thread seemed to me to be identical in nature to this one...
...

Obviously I have a different POV than this poster, but the spirit and nature of my thread was identical, as far as I can tell.

15. Here;s an idea..... before this gets locked, do some thinking abouyt where you'd be without
"progressives".

Or, just ban us all.

THEN see how sweet the world looks to you.

Bye now...

22. Answer me this. Why should progressives support anyone who has demonstrated
quite clearly that he/they hold them in utter contempt? Progressives aren't short-sighted. They've just finally had enough of being told to shut up and eat the shit sandwich. And maybe the "no place else to go" argument has worn thin on them, too.

24. There's a poll on GD now proposing a DU purity test/pledge, so it probably wasn't that.
