DU used to be a board where one could call out ignorant opinons.

Now it has become a place where juries no longer take into context the OP when the OP poster says something absolutely crazy and some one calls them out about it.

DU has become a place where you can post almost any idiocy as an OP and when people call one out about it their posts are hidden as being not very polite or nice.

That is just wrong.

Critizem of Bibi is no more anti-Semitic...

Than critizem of Obama is racist.

How this was so offensive is completely beyond me.

You juror #1 really need to read all my posts and see how I am favorable to people of all religions and all colors. And I am also disrespectful of all religions in equal ways.


Well no. I base my opinion on your insulting, outlandish posts.

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Personal attacks, with a touch of anti-Semitism leveled against a Jewish poster. Inappropriate and over the top!

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Wed Jan 14, 2015, 03:56 PM, and voted 6-1 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: More than a touch of anti-Semitism. Hide this crap. Admin. should look at this person, too.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Both participants are equally repulsive. Let them fight it out.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: It's a bit of a difficult decision because the posts s/he responds to are also attacking, but I think s/he takes it too far with that second paragraph.
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Post could have been worded so as to express the same opinion, but without the obvious personal attack. Vote to Hide It.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: rude, insulting and does not belong here
Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No comment needed.
