What do you love about this place?

I love the friendships you make here. The ability to meet progressives from other parts of the country is wonderful to me.

1. I like the discussions...

But I also like being on the same page as most people... It's nice to know there are other people out there like me!

4. The kind non judgemental, accepting people. I hope I don't wear out my welcome...

I can be a bit of a broken record about my emotional problems and other issues and I've got into trouble on another forum for airing my dirty laundry there a bit too much, became REALLY unfriendly and I was sort of forced to leave after a 10 year history there.

Also I'm a liberal guy politically so it's nice to hang out with people of like mind.

10. Ahh ok. But that has nothing to do with you. That's petty office politics...

every forum has that. Don't worry I'm sure you yourself are well liked enough. I worry that I may not be in time because of the crap I post.

13. I'm with you on the friendships...

This place has helped me grow, both personally and politically.

I know a lot more about the world than I did before I joined.

I love the feeling of family...

18. The friendships.

The comfort of being with fellow liberals. The chance to improve my writing skills. The fun of producing William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.

And, occasionally, the flirting...

23. Well, referring to

the Lounge in particular, what I like about it is that it's filled with some very witty and funny people.

You guys make me laugh like hell sometimes

26. I know everything in advance

by reading this site. It's funny to me how so often the news media will "report" something that I saw on DU three days ago.

Another thing I like is the wealth of knowledge here. You can put up a question and somebody will have the answer for you.

27. All the smart, funny, and generous people.

Need advice or information? Just post a request on DU and you will get twenty replies.
Need a laugh? There is no shortage of witty repartee!
Need a friend? Just ask, we are here with hugs, a shoulder to cry on, or even a financial hand-up if needed.

29. What OP said,

plus sometimes I just feel like being on a site that is virtually free of RWNJs and bigots. I used to read comments a lot on Yahoo and YouTube, but I eventually just got sick of it. I felt as if I was losing brain cells when reading that stuff; almost every other comment on those sites is either something anti-Obama, anti-liberal, anti-gay, anti-women, or something racial.
