2. I don't understand how other people can get you tombstoned.
If someone is baiting you, then walk away.

I'm not sure what you're sayin with that other thread, either.

3. yes, I am
there were apparently "sleeper cells" that were activated at some point, because the tone of the debate here on DU has changed considerably on a variety of hot button issues.

5. I guess I don't understand
my feeling is if you don't like the thread, don't respond and it will sink. I have seen that person around for quite a while so I don't think (he or she) is a troll. Plus, my opinion is that we should be able to talk about how we are feeling. This hasn't been a fabulous year for anyone as far as I know.

10. I'm not saying the OP of that thread is a troll. Far from it.

The OP said s/he was tired of plants and hit men, etc.

8. you have taken the easy way out
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 08:53 AM by cleveramerican
any poster who speaks bluntly
presents hard to swallow(for democrats) points of view.

is a pain in the ass?

by your view, Are most voters across the country a pain in the ass also?

My old Gramma used to say" never trust anybody who is certain they are right about everything"

Humility is way underrated by democrats.

9. I never got the point of arguing.
Ignore is my friend.
I use it.

However, yes, it does seem the tone of DU has changed.
And we have lost a lot of long time members whose viewpoints I have enjoyed.
OTOH, I still find very interesting information and viewpoints here.
