Heads Up: LBN forum no longer on the front page.

I know this is a new development, and I assume it has to do with the bad news for the presumptive nominee.

1. haha wow

Can it get anymore draconian around here?

At first they were just suppressing all the primary stuff.

Now they're suppressing the influx of bad news for Hillary?

Don't we fucking Democrats understand that closing our eyes and ears to the news is NOT a good fucking way to handle this? We should all be clearly reading the writing on the wall and seeing that Hillary is a fucked up nominee that is NOT GOING TO WIN.

I hate to sound so doom and gloom but the ship is sinking and we should jump instead of pretending the leak isn't fucking happening!

the discussions here or on Freezer land or any discussion system.

4. I am not sure how your comment relates to the OP?

 

The LBN forum is one of the best places on the Internet to catch up with latest breaking news, and with only five spots for the "greatest posts" LBN has always had a prominent place.

This looks to be purely partisan due to the negative press one of the candidates is currently receiving. I am disappointed, but understand the position. With that being said, it's only going to get worse as the Intelligence Community Inspector General's Report and possible FBI indictments come out.

9. I agree about it being great. But so many people feel that if some kind of bad/good news

is hidden from view then peoples opinions can be swayed. We can praise Bernie all we want but will it change any of the HRC supporters, Nope. If information on the e-mails are not shown will us Bernie supporters start to think that HRC is a clean, trustworthy candidate, I doubt it.

It is partisan indeed, just like the MSM and local news etc. I do believe it is going to get a lot worse. I am scared to death about a statement of "Its victory in California and and now it's off to Philadelphia" being made by Bernie.

10. Are you referring to a column spot for LBN or the Greatest Thread section, Ida?

I don't have the home page bookmarked, so I rarely look at it and couldn't honestly say if LBN had a slot there - but if it's the Greatest section, you're right that the Admins are picking and choosing what will show.

There is an LBN thread about Warren and Trump showing as one of the five, with fewer than 70 recommendations - but the +100 rec 'all cap' post about Clinton and the email - also in LBN - isn't. They were both posted yesterday, so not a glitch . . .

Their site, their choice - but not exactly democratic (of course, they jumped that shark a long time ago).

13. That's news to me. SMH. I knew admins have been tweaking things to favor HRC

 

But I guess I haven't been very observant.

14. Neither had I,

until I did a bit of cross-checking after reading Ida's OP.

I get that the owners' don't want to air DU's dirty laundry on the front page, but they should try, at least, to be transparent about it.
