Ron Paul Supporters Plan to Stoke up Trouble on DU

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Violet_Crumble (a host of the General Discussion forum).

The following thread I started got hidden: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10023129752 Wtf?

Take a look on Democratic Underground

They have the gov't paid trolls out, trying to limit the outrage & rebellion on there.

If that is the reaction of hard core Dems to the news stories on the NSA, I want to stoke up some more of it.

Lots of traffic on DU.

It's the most popular Dem internet site, except for Huffy Po - where everything meaningful gets censored.

AUTOMATED MESSAGE: One of your posts has been hidden by a DU Jury

At Sat Jun 29, 2013, 06:11 PM, an alert was sent on the following post:

Paulbots Plan to Stroke up Trouble on DU
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10023129752

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

This entire thread is going nowhere fast. Whether it is true or not, I could care less, but I'm sick of the disruption and crazy talk.

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sat Jun 29, 2013, 06:16 PM, and voted 4-2 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: This just fosters paranoia.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: All this crap with 'Paulbots' and 'Authoritarians' shows no class. The dumbing down of DU continues so long as these labels are bandied about.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: This newbie seems to spend about 90% of his/her DU time trying to "stroke up" conflict and turn DUers against one another. Sounds like a troll to me, and this thread is pure divisiveness.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: I agree with the alerter - DU has lost its collective mind
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: meh

CONSEQUENCES OF THIS DECISION

You will no longer be able to participate in this discussion thread, and you will not be able to start a new discussion thread in this forum until 7:16 PM. This hidden post has been added to your <a href="/?com=profile&uid=272298&sub=trans">Transparency page</a>.



The link I posted came from the Daily Paul - A Ron Paul fan site. I fail to see how pointing out the obvious is seen as trolling. And I find someone on the jury calling me a "newbie" a little insulting. I've had this account for for over 2 years. How long do I have to have an account to get some fucking respect? This place is becoming nothing more than a cesspool of paranoid anti-American assholes who are devoid of any reality based solutions to any of the problems they complain about.

IBT troll is too dumb to know better? Not sure what the IBT stands for, but whatever. If anyone's a troll it's you. Everywhere I see you you're running your mouth off to anyone who criticizes the Almighty Snowden or the Great Glenn "The Lyin Libertarian" Greedwald.

They add absolutely nothing here, but they don't convert anyone anyway. I used to not think too much one way or another. Now I know his followers are intellectually challenged morons who have no idea what the world would look like if they got their way.

I can understand why some were against it, however. There has been a huge increase in people whose differing opinions make them an Obama-lover or Obama-hater, and an increasing distrust of honest disagreement from all angles.

Having not been a recipient of that kind of name-calling, I am probably less sensitive to it than those who have received it. It seems like some people misread the post.

Thanks for posting!

They like to heat up slowly and then invade, sometimes breaking into multiple identities! I alerted on one of those who didn't disagree that he/she was a multiple. A housewife with kids one minute and a gay man from the midwest another.

the link you posted (from the OP cut/pasted here)-
http://www.dailypaul.com/288556/clapper-and-feinstein-get-caught-lying-big-time#comment-3103138
The dailypaul is a bonafide RON AND RAND site, for their supporters.

Amazing.

Good investigative work, and everyone likes investigative reporting.

The TOS of DU indeed specifically states NO Paulites (Paulites=Ron/Rand and this is their site).

Do people not know Ron and Rand are bonafide REPUBLICANS who this week were jumping for joy that
the US SUpreme Court tore down voting rights for all Americans

while at the same time,
Rand Paul was ranting and raving over the DOMA victory we Democratic party supporters are very happy about.

Sorry, I myself DO NOT STAND for or with Rand.

I support the Democratic party of Barack Obama, President. Not the republican senator from Kentucky.

What the Paul's are doing are equal to Karl Rove in the dirty tricks business.

No whining about DU. That includes calling it 'a cesspool of paranoid anti-American assholes who are devoid of any reality based solutions to any of the problems they complain about.'
