Can I ask a favor?

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

If you accuse someone of an earlier post that says something horrible, please be ready to supply a link to the post.

Sometimes people who write horrible posts forget they wrote it. Perhaps they have dementia.

And sometimes people who make accusations are just utterly full of @#$&.

And jurors: letting people make awful accusations without supplying evidence is *not* Ok. Hide the damned things, please.

(Yes, I know this post will get locked. But I had to get that out of my system.)

1. Look at yourself, sir. I have seen many of your posts.

and those are posted under the guise of a third way sort.

I would suggest you not ask of others what you don't do yourself.

Satire is a double edged sword, I have heard.

5. I will do no such thing. That is not my job.

You are requesting something of me that has nothing to do with my statement.

Why would I do such a thing when you chose to use the phrase: If I've falsely accused a DUer

I cannot prove a negative, and I won't.

go take a look at the definition of red herring.

3. No, you have this wrong.

Calling people out for making accusations (on whatever topic) without being able to back up their claim is the offense to be hidden. Thus spoke the DU juror system.

It's easier than thinking sometimes.

4. You can ask not sure how many will grant you that request, you seem to have some rather

Interesting fans....but personally I believe that's not a bad idea.. The most I do is read as my time is limited, it would be easier to dislike and ignore those that deserve it if I were able to read the offending words myself....

7. Can I ask a favor

 

How about a whole lot of you. let bygones be bygones. and carry on.

There are way to many grudges being carried over here.

Many folks need to step back and restart. The history, good or bad, getting dragged into every thread, is killing all conversation.

Just my opinion, of course.

10. Thanks.

 

I'd appreciate it if you let me know how it goes.

More than likely, the hosts will lock it anyway.

Good night.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=5937022

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.
ALERTER'S COMMENTS

No need for personal attacks

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Wed Dec 10, 2014, 12:01 AM, and the Jury voted 3-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: What personal attack? When juries don't work, this is the main reason. Too much alerting on post that shouldn't ever be alerted in the first place.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This is MannyGoldstein. Take it for what its worth.

Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I've just spent about twenty minutes trying to trace this out, and still have no idea where the truth is. So I vote to leave it. As a mod I might delete the whole nasty subthread, but cannot really single out one post.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

I was Juror #3.

14. I followed bettyellen's link to another link, to another link, to this one

 

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10024468868

which you didn't even participate in

There does seem to be some misunderstanding here.... I hope we can clear it up without too much bloodshed.
