Wow! META. REALLY?

I am appealing. 84 Recs, but now it has been disappeared from the Greatest Page (posted at 10:17 am this morning.)

ENOUGH! MY *PATRIOTISM* TRUMPS PARTY LOYALTY!!!

I am pretty confident I know why:

ASK THE ADMINS:
On shutting down GDP with a date certain 05/31/2016 @ 8:53 am

It seems premature to declare that the primary will end at the last vote, June 14.

Given the liabilities with Hillary and Bernie's renewed declaration that he will take it to the convention and the unresolved FBI investigation, it is plausible/possible/likely that it will not be finally resolved until a vote on the convention floor.

And there will be countless stories and continuing news between June 14 and July 24, perhaps even major events that turn the race upside down.

For the sake of clarity, to the extent Bernie continues the race beyond June 14 up to and including the convention, where will the primary discussions occur?

Further, discussions of the very real FBI criminal investigation into Hillary's server and its use cannot be construed as "attacking the presumptive nominee," would you agree?

It all depends on how you do it.

Thoughtful discussions of Hillary Clinton's private email server and how it might affect the campaign: Fine.

Using Hillary Clinton's private email server as a club in order to beat her down: Not fine.

1. It is getting close to the time when get rid of the trailer trash as they called us. So this

can be the limousine liberal system they so desire.

3. Wow, and that one even compares Bernie people to baggers.

What does he think that nasty rant comes off as. It probably wasn't even hidden.

5. The writer of that I think runs the HillaryClintonSupporters.com site from what I have heard.

Not really sure though, but seemed to reflect a lot of the thinking here.

2. And you_ should dig_ this.......a self delete

After a mega thread of people putting the OP on blast for silly shit like someone reading some papers.

I gotta wonder if the jury pool sent a little heads up pm before the verdict was issued.

4. The host has graciously responded..,

 

The concern was the first paragraph where I referred to snide obnoxious comments as justification for writing the post.

I have offered to edit or rewrite as needed.

The upsetting part is that I now feel PARANOID that my stance on Hillary Clinton is going to be used to treat my posts unfairly.

This is not a democracy; it is a discussion board, and I have vowed to respect those parameters. I *expect* to be treated fairly in return.

I believe my participation adds value to this board, but I am under no illusion about whether my being gone would be noticed by many for more than a brief moment.

It's a message board. Why do I feel so betrayed?

6. They have their list and they check it twice when a thread tweaks their attention.

I used to ask the mod to unhide a tread I started so I could delete my post. I don't do that any more though .

a Security Clearance would look elsewhere.

9. My appeal has been rejected. I will edit and repost later (probably tomorrow).

 

Right now my feelings are hurt. (Not a reflection on the host, who was everything one expects from a person who has to moderate such a volatile forum as GDP.)

10. Well, it's been an interesting 15 years here but since Skinner is basically

 

Going to pull a Tweety no balls on us and "call it". I have better things to do with my time than listen to a forum full of smug, snarky, trolls who don't donate gloat so I'll be on my way.

Those of us who have been here know how well the "Ralph Nader purge" worked back in the day should find this amusing.

What DU is gonna do when all the paid Hillary trolls stop posting and don't donate is another story and, frankly, no longer my problem.

18. Well, it was a long time ago and I'm getting old but

 

It was pretty much the same crap. If you support Ralph you are not a Democrat and should be kicked off DU and blah blah... As I recall, someone started to set up an alternative site and enough people threatened to bail on DU that Tweety relented and us "not real Democrats" we're allowed to stay but there were a lot fewer members then and I seriously doubt that Skinner will miss my humble revenue stream now so I'm guessing that it will be Hillary underground now where the Government of the people by the 1% for the 1% is fine with them. Oh well, I knew it coulden't last forever.

12. As Clinton sinks, the purge quietly begins

I can think of no greater irony. The trolls will gravedance for a week, and then leave.

What will there to be to post at that point?

16. Oh, Okay...

That explanation helps. Not surprising on the "Her" supporter doing such after such a short time. Obviously the hiring of paid staff of David Brock and Company, continues.

17. Seriously? One week?!

 

Maybe I need to ask the Hillary camp to pay me to stop writing!

I crack myself up.
