but you should stay off the primary board. i rarely post there. honestly it is just the same circular firing squad arguments over and over. 90% of the juries i sit on are for primary posts about Bernie Sanders. Exactly the same as 2016. It honestly drives me mad. That forum brings very little to DU other than strife it does serve a great purpose of consolidating all our infighting to one board instead of it spreading all over DU LOL

25. ".. actual real violation."

How can you take such authoritarian horseshit seriously. Hides are dispensed automatically on any complaint with no review. Appeals are ignored. The appellant receives no response unless the appeal is approved, and so has to wait forever for nothing at all. It's a stupid system that favors the capricious complainer. Are any appeals ever approved? Who fucking knows..
" ... actual real violation." Pfft.

93. "Authoritarian horseshit"? DU is the least authoritarian forum I know, thanks to the jury system

I was a mod on DU2; I'm a mod on another forum. Those were/are inevitably more 'authoritarian' because certain users get the authority to delete or edit posts, and don't have to explain it in public. I don't think you appreciate the level of democracy and member power that DU3 gives us.

And yes, appeals do get approved.

Seriously, if you think this is a "stupid system", then make your own forum without any rules at all. It'll devolve into 8chan in no time at all.

62. She got it from the shot! I remember when there was a rash of reactions to the shot that year.

Her facts aren't "off" about her own experience.

https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/guillain-barre-syndrome.html

In 1976, there was a small increased risk of GBS after swine flu vaccination, which was a special flu vaccine for a potential pandemic strain of flu virus. The National Academy of Medicine, formerly known as Institute of Medicine, conducted a scientific review of this issue in 2003 and found that people who received the 1976 swine flu vaccine had an increased risk for developing GBS. The increased risk was approximately one additional case of GBS for every 100,000 people who got the swine flu vaccine. Scientists have several theories about the cause, but the exact reason for this link remains unknown.

91. Yes I think that's the problem

As many jury calls as everyone gets daily just in the short time we're here especially during primary season and I'm sure a large majority of those who get hidden feel they were somehow misinterpreted or judged too harshly and appeal. I suspect if they answered every appeal it would take someone all day explaining themselves in emails. Maybe they could have a team like MIRT, or maybe it just is what it is sometimes imperfect but the most democratic system I'm aware of in such a community.

40. The chances of getting GB from the flu shot are about a million-to-one.

I'm sorry that you were that one, but there's no evidence that getting GB from the flu shot is anything other than an infinitesimal risk. The chances of getting it from a bacterium or other infection is thousands of times higher.

That's probably why your post was considered anti-vax. Your experience, while truly horrifying, isn't representative of the norm and GB is *not* a risk associated with the shot often enough to require them to advertise it as such.

Source: the CDC

"If there is an increased risk of GBS following flu vaccination it is small, on the order of one to two additional GBS cases per million doses of flu vaccine administered."

68. I think it's now two per million but SIRVA seems to be a bigger problem

So if 165 flu shots are given a yr possibly 300 or more people might get GB from flu shot. Most adverse reactions reported to Vaccine Injury Compensation Program are now from flu shots, not childhood vaccines. SIRVA seems to be a problem - where the shot is given too high on the arm and the pain becomes chronic. Because of SIRVA, I think if I were to get a flu shot I would get it from a dr rather than a pharmacy.

Here is a report from Dept of Justice - put out every 3 months detailing injury compensation. 83 compensations - 18 compensations for SIRVA, 6 for GBS. (chart on page 10)

30. I know it feels like having a post or two removed is a big deal, but really,

it isn't anything to be overly bothered by.

I very much doubt your original post would have been alerted had you included your gbs story, and then the second post wouldn't have even come up.

Your experience with gbs is informative and adds to the du community to know about it, thank you for sharing.

Don't let the particulars of how it was communicated and misinterpreted bother you. It happens, it's no big deal.

Again, I know it doesn't feel that way right now -- I've been there -- but after a bit of reflection I hope you'll take it in stride as I have the rare times my posts get removed.

39. I hear you.

I got slapped for something because one NEW person reported my comment as a threat. It wasn't. It was a summary of a reality, something that I have seen happen several times in my lifetime, and it was completely and ridiculously misinterpreted.

I think sometimes people knee-jerk a response without thinking that there could be more than one interpretation than their own.

It upset me for days. So, I took a few weeks off. But the important thing is your sanity in these difficult times, so do what you feel is best for you.

Peace be with you.

Listen, I love DU. It fun to bullshit with people who generally agree with me. And I learn a lot and get tons of laughs.

But it has zero effect on my real life. I get hides. Usually because I can be an ass. Occasionally because I am misunderstood.

But how does that effect my, or your life? Yeah, it doesnít. Or should not.

If what happens here is affecting you emotionally then you should give it a break. Then come back when when you realize what it is. A bunch of strangers with various views generally on the left. Some nice. Some assholes.

But at the end of the day if what happens here affects you emotionally you need something else.

54. I get it. My first few hides hurt. The next 20, not so much.

Iíve only alerted on one post here. That was a post I wrote, and changed my mine overnight.

55. So you got a hide. Big deal.

Iíve gotten lots of hides, some justified and others less so. I appeal the ones I feel are unfair and theyíre often overturned. I donít get worked up about the ones that stand, and if I get to three (usually related to a certain fan club, but cíest la vie) I just make sure to be extra careful for a month or two until they start to mature off my record.

Itís an internet discussion board ó taking it seriously is very ill-advised.

56. Take a couple of days away to think about things.

I got really angry when one person seemed to alert stalk me over one night about 2 months ago. I appealed, but heard nothing back. I was angry, so I just took some time away. Some people here, unfortunately, can't handle strong disagreement with a position they take, but that exists in life everywhere.

Don't take things as you being targeted, I am sure that if that is happening, the targeters will be exposed at some point soon.

58. After 17 years I am still here. nm

I have endured the flood of paid truth assassins pissing all over DU pushing DDT, guns, wars, lies, b.s. and assorted mayhem. Now they have them so trained they do it for free! Gleefully wishing to end life on Earth so they can be justified in their end time beliefs. Yeah no time for lily livered. Goodbye.

60. Fair winds and following seas.

Wishing you very well. If you feel like returning eventually, donít feel shy because we all have the attention span of puppies.

Not just DU.

Nobody will question you because, and I donít mean this in a hurtful way so please donít take it that way, most wont remember. Except me. I hope!

Unless you do a giant flameout. Thereís still time, lol.


I think itís been 16 years 🤭. 18 if you count lurking. I donít think more than a couple of people here know Iím here at all. Good news bad news!

Anyway cheers, aloha.

64. Suck it up

You're not a victim. Most of us have had warnings and posts removed. Taking it overly personal is a waste of time. If it bothers you that much you probably should move on since its not worth being miserable over.

65. People are giving you words of wisdom: take a break for awhile, and swear off the Primaries forum

Hang out in another one of the groups, like Gardening or Photography.

Primaries is where the majority of the ugliness is -- that's why it's sequestered.

This, too, shall pass.

76. Probably stung so much because of the story behind your post. My uncle had GBS and nearly died.

Everyone was asking if heíd had a flu shot. He still has an effect from it.

I got kicked off, literally banned from websleuths. It was a tech thing. I thought my computer was acting up and posts not going through so kept posting and...nasty message too on doubling posts and ďyou were warned,Ē never darken our very special door again.

That same weekend I had found out a friend had committed suicide and also had to put my very precious little rescue to sleep. I was crying over websleuths LOL. But someone on board messaged me how much she liked my posts and others did too and I told her about my friend and cried some more. And bit by bit got over it.

Thank goodness you got some cute and sweet responses here. Makes me feel people really are good after all (Anne Frank).

See, it happens. Fifteen years! Donít chuck it all.

It is the hot season, under the collar.

I am glad you wrote this. I am glad you recovered too.

78. Take some time off. It will give you perspective.

I want to say DU is the greatest board I have ever been on. Republicans can drive you up the wall with their repeated, canned responses and down right lies.

I really like the MOD system, think most try to be fair and not let ideology sway them.

It is never wise to announce you are leaving, better to just go away until you feel better.

I've never understood the purpose of these.




Well. Happy trails! I wish you the best.

83. DU is like the Hotel California: you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

Yes, you can stop posting here but I'm sure DU will keep you on their membership list.
I wonder how many dead people are on that list?

86. You should reconsider. We all get mired in nasty exchanges every so often.

It bothers me, too, but that's what happens when we all get to speak our minds. Don't take it personally. The person who upset you so much could be name Ivan and he could be sitting at a keyboard in Russia. We have no idea about who we're chatting with or what their motives might really be. Take a vacation and then come back.

89. After looking at the post in question, I doubt that any one named Ivan was involved.

Hey, things have changed on DU. Five or ten years ago this thread would have been filled with 'Don't let the door hit you where the good lord split you' responses. Now we're encouraging people to stay. Which is a good thing.

90. You got a hide for posting anti flu vax "information"

That was a far hide.

I had one hide, ever, that was blatantly partisan (ie snarking about Gabbard), and just let it go.

This OP actually IS against TOS.
