Sat Apr 23, 2016, 09:50 PM

A group member was banned today for something said about one of the candidates.

Please keep in mind to be civil when discussing the candidates and to abide by the TOS. It is very important to remember this.

Winning elections is important therefore, advocating in favor of Republican nominees or in favor of third-party spoiler candidates that could split the vote and throw an election to our conservative opponents is never permitted on Democratic Underground. But that does not mean that DU members are required to always be completely supportive of Democrats. During the ups-and-downs of politics and policy-making, it is perfectly normal to have mixed feelings about the Democratic officials we worked hard to help elect. When we are not in the heat of election season, members are permitted to post strong criticism or disappointment with our Democratic elected officials, or to express ambivalence about voting for them. In Democratic primaries, members may support whomever they choose. But when general election season begins, DU members must support Democratic nominees (EXCEPT in rare cases where a non-Democrat is most likely to defeat the conservative alternative, or where there is no possibility of splitting the liberal vote and inadvertently throwing the election to the conservative alternative). For presidential contests, election season begins when both major-party nominees become clear. For non-presidential contests, election season begins on Labor Day. Everyone here on DU needs to work together to elect more Democrats and fewer Republicans to all levels of American government. If you are bashing, trashing, undermining, or depressing turnout for our candidates during election season, we'll assume you are rooting for the other side.

5. I didn't find the post EalG referenced, Swilton thought it was the OP he posted here in the group

but that remark isn't in that OP.

3. I got my first hide today.

I asked a new DU member(a Hillary supporter that was in the Bernie group), how much David Brock paid them, and they alerted it. Apparently you can't ask members if they're paid trolls even if they insult you.

and you can. Short stay and already posting OP after OP and large post counts. This means they paid to join. Who the eff pays to join a site when you don't have to in the beginning?

9. Don't bother asking, we all know who they are

The fact that we have something solid backing it up just confirms it for all of us.

Keep in mind also that they are paid to post- I played with a few of them during the cycle to confirm my suspicions, but on general principle, ignore them and do not engage. Let them try and justify talking to themselves for their paycheck.

Very few of them believe what they are posting, it's just a tactic.

We're not all racist, sexist BernieBros to them, just people getting in the way of their bonuses.

"Get off my lawn!" Someone alerted it, and still stands as we speak.

16. ageism is completely tolerated on this site

and i do not understand it.

If anyone said some stereotypic comment about a woman or a person of another race, everyone would be RIGHTLY up in arms. But evidently being older is something to be mocked and jeered.

Ageism is fine, apparently.

I got a post hidden today in the middle of a long thread with most people saying exactly the same thing as I did. Juries, run amok. another reason why Liberals probably need another home than DU. I guess if JFK had posted his why I am a liberal speech here, he'd have been thrown out too.

I need to get over to JPR. This place is going to hell in a hand basket.

We can see where the line here was. Saying a 3rd Clinton term would be worse than a 1st Trump term. Though I have not seen the post, only the remark on Swilton's Transparency page, so don't know the full context.

Sad to lose a good long-time member, RIP swilton.

ask is that you are a Bernie supporter.

36. Doesn't matter in the long run...

I think most Bernie supporters will exit one way or the other. Pretty obvious to me why we've been allowed to stay this long.

The plans were for her to run unopposed, you know.
