Open request to Skinner and the powers that be.

Mid terms are coming soon. We will then be going into General election mode.
How about a rule stating "Never speak ill of another Democrat."
As the election campaigning fires up there are sure to be candidates with different views regarding the future of the party and the country. Rather than posting negative opinions about democratic candidates we do not agree with, why don't we just post positive opinions about candidates we like. If we must be nasty, let it be pointed at the real evils, the republicans.
Think about it!
Yours for cooperation and success.

1. Yes! Don't forget the Russian trolls who will pose as strong supporters of

one candidate by damming another with faint praise.

As a sales professional for 30 years I say trust no one who has to disparage a competitor to promote themselves.

2. Not only this...

but, please...please...do everything you can to prevent the 2nd hacking of this site!
(I'm sure you are already doing this but I hated that election night crap.) Also, individual
members make sure to install good anti-virus (NOT KASPERSKY!) and anti-malware apps
on your devices, and use them.

4. i wish they would add "might be a troll"

to the alert system. it could go straight to the guys, instead of juries, and to mirt if the person is under 100 posts.
they really need to tighten up policing of people who just dont belong here. so many of them are gifted at keeping it just below the level of what would get alerted, or removed by the juries.
and those are the ones we most need to get rid of.

10. Even if they are not supporting the party

but they are running against a Repub, then we have to vote for them. Don't disparage them.

12. Because other people don't ignore them

and can be negatively influenced. Better that such posts not exist here.
