My very last post here.

My last post in the BOG. The lights are going to be turned out and I want to give one last hug to you all in this place.



The Barack Obama Group.

Love and hugs to all that were part of that. We did good.



We had his back here. We had each others backs here.



Thank you President Barack Obama.

Ha.

One last time....

Forever thankful to have been a tiny part of all that. Still have the large Hope poster framed in my office, and it's staying put. We can all be proud of the engagement he invited us to; he elevated all of us.

And Yes, we still can!

I have to say though, that I am really relieved that the Primaries forum has opened, just so I can avoid it 99% of the time.

Ha! I also finally put a certain person with awful sig-line animations on total Ignore, and my mood improved immediately.

46. Wait, all the Democrat groups under the Democrats folder? That makes no sense.

Are they going to close the Kerry, Gore, O'Malley groups too? And any other group linked to a specific politician?

That would suck.

I don't understand why BOG would be closed - he clearly isn't a candidate in the upcoming prez primary.

47. There was a major announcement from the Admins, complete with yellow banner...

Here https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1013&pid=9260

Anyhow, a lot of us have been pleading for the Admins to hurry up and start a Primaries forum because GD was getting cluttered and unmanageable already. So They finally did:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1287

I am only sorry that some of our little affinity groups will have to be shuttered.

49. Saw that. Didn't see that it would apply to non-candidates.

Here is all I see:

Sometime tomorrow, we will close down the existing candidate supporter groups.


Obama, Kerry, O'Malley, Gore aren't candidates - why would these groups close?

I can see that raises a potential issue with Biden. He is technically not a candidate yet, but is expected to be. What if he announces he won't run?

Still I don't agree with closing groups for historically great people who have zero chance of being candidates in the upcoming primaries. If that's what Skinner does though, well it is his site. I just didn't read it that way because it doesn't make sense to me.

Did Skinner confirm somewhere that meant ALL groups specific to individual Democrat politicians?
