22. As one AFIB patient to another...

...agreed.

I'm glad its in a separate forum, otherwise I would have to avoid DU completely...

...but then I would go on Free Republic, Conservative Cave, etc. and laugh at the comedy. Yeah I know, I shouldn't, but I tend to think those who post there are beyond reach, so, may as well find the humor of it.

Aside from that, I'll support whoever the nominee is in the end.

2. Yes it is.

At least it's easy to avoid that site, if we choose to do so.

11. It's like that pretty much every cycle.

This one, in my experience, hasn't been that bad thus far in comparison to 2016 and a couple of others.

It's all relative, of course. Plus, it's still really early.

17. Adding the Primaries forum was one of the best decisions DU ever made.

I can't remember which cycle it was added, but it's been invaluable, both for containing all of the primary stuff in one place and keeping its tendency to be a bit vitriolic from invading GD, etc.

20. We had one in 2015/2016.

It was called "General Discussion: Primaries"

https://www.democraticunderground.com/10134641

I just can't remember if there was one before that. I don't think so.

41. Same thing in '08.

This is the first time that people are asked to declare who they are supporting at this time though. I think that is helping a little. Everyone wants to pick up everyone else's supporters when someone finally has to drop out. Gotta be careful not to piss too many people off, lol.

It gets uglier when the field narrows to three, and really brutal when it gets down to two.

39. I agree. I hadn't realized how that's part of the attraction. It's a model for...

... how we should campaign. Anyone who is capable of understanding knows Trump is totally awful. There's no benefit to letting him take up space in our campaign.

40. I haven't found it to be that way at all. I've posted two or three...

... times a week and have gotten very few negative replies. I tend not to read the conversations that lose their visual embedding.... too hard to follow who's replying to what and maybe that's where the stuff you're talking about lives.

In particular I've been struck by how often someone who identifies with one candidate has something good to say about another one.
