I'm a bit confused but I want to do the right thing.

I had a comment on a recent thread in the Democratic Primaries forum supporters of Warren discussion. I am a supporter of Kamala Harris but by no means critical of Warren. I simply had a comment but then realized that maybe my comment could be taken as criticism, so I deleted it, thinking it was against forum rules.

My question is: can we comment on a candidate in his/her forum if we are not self identified as supporters of another candidate?

1. Good question...

How about “Ask the Administrators”? Personally I don’t like to “intrude” into forums I’m not identified with but I do believe if written in an acceptable way it’s fine.

2. I am now thinking that my comment was nothing that hadn't been raised and discussed before

about Warren's campaign decisions. Therefore, my opinion is pretty much unnecessary. If she wins the primaries and becomes our candidate we will all have the chance to weigh in on this topic (to rebut Trump's worthless mutterings and name calling).

Thank you for your suggestion, tho. I appreciate hearing the comment and one that I am sure will be addressed by the Admins as time goes forward.

3. You must have selected a candidate to post in their group.

That's what Skinner said in his announcement of the primary season and the candidate groups. If you change your preference you must wait a week before you can post in the candidate's group. I'd guess that a change from undecided to a candidate would be subject to the wait.

Here is a link to the announcement.

Details about the candidate groups are here

4. OK, so I was correct to delete my comment in the Warren group since I am "officially" in the

Harris group, even tho my reason may (and doesn't) stem from animosity toward Warren, but simply an opinion about her campaign strategy, which is unnecessary because it is nothing new.

6. You must be confused, because you can't post in a candidate's group if not a supporter.

I just went and tried to see if I could do that. I couldn’t.

You were probably in the primaries group where you can post freely about any candidate.

7. The self-deleted post is in the primaries forum.

I think you are correct

8. Yeah, even if you change your preference, you have to wait 7 days to post in the candidate's forum.

The software stops you.
