DU has been infiltrated wit Freepers -- Time to fight back!
I have noticed over the recent months a LARGE amount of unrecs on just about ANY story. It has become quite obvious that there are people coming to DU, who have the sole purpose of unrec'ing posts.

I have also noticed job postings on Craig's List, where the position is to "post opinions" on various websites.

Folks... we are being manipulated more than ever. In light of the Murdoch Invasion of Privacy, it is time we fight back.

My suggestion is an organized effort of 50,000 DU members, who all post at the same time on a named website -- once a week. We can go down the entire list of the top 100 media blogs.

It is time to make our presence known, and we need to make it loud.

1. Is it time to make your presence known in this thread again?
It seems strange to start a thread calling for an organized effort, and then to ignore the thread for many hours.

3. I'm almost exclusively a lurker now, but what is the purpose of the unrec option?
I think its elimination was considered at some point? If it's to draw attention to inappropriate posts, etc., there's "alert." And if it's to register disagreement, there's the option to post a response. I understand the purpose of "rec" -- either appreciation of a good post, and/or agreement with the post.

Sorry, just curious -- not arguing a point.

4. Locking
please do not start threads to call out and attack other members. If you think someone is here to disrupt, please use the alert function.

Also, we do not permit organizing to disrupt or harass other sites.

Thanks,
