1. Just like everyone told you in your thread asking the same question.

 

Remember, pro-Bernie =/= anti-Hillary.

2. Ya... And skinner didn't even have to make that declaration. Common sense.

 

But wtf right? Much easier and effective declaring false accusation.

3. I understood that Hillary-slamming posts and pro-Trump posts would be banned.

I did not hear that pro-Bernie posts would be banned.

4. Many pro-Bernie posts are of course critical of Hillary Clinton's policies. Why wouldn't they be?

 


You see, Bernie Sanders disagrees with Hillary's political record and policy positions. That's why he's running for the nomination!

Surprise! You didn't know that?

And Bernie's criticisms of Hillary Clinton will be permitted on Democratic Party underground at least until the Democratic Party selects a candidate for President.

6. You and I understand what he said differently

we will see in a couple of weeks I guess.

Also, I'd say that there's a difference between criticism, and slamming.

9. Some Hillary supporters have described any criticism of her as "slamming".

 


Slamming is what Donald Trump does.

Bernie and his supporters don't slam Hillary Clinton.

11. I've seen some slamming from both sides

I've seen Bernie get just plain slammed, and I've seen Hillary get just plain slammed. I don't think it belongs here in either case.

Fair criticism of either should be allowed IMO.

7. Does this mean any actual news about the emailgate is prohibited because it is detrimental to HRC?

8. Question

Pro- Bernie, Pro-Hills posts = yes

Anti-Bernie, Anti-Hills posts = no

with some gray area?

12. It seems clear to me that that Skinner was clear and anti-Bernie or anti-Hillary posts are OK ....

 


if the pro-Bernie and pro-Hillary posts are clear criticisms of their opponents records and policies and not the kind of low-level personal slams and attacks we see from someone like Donald Trump.

10. I wonder why anyone would think that in the first place. That's just strange.
