Ron Paul Supporters Plan to Stoke up Trouble on DU [View all]

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Violet_Crumble (a host of the General Discussion forum).

The following thread I started got hidden: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10023129752 Wtf?

Take a look on Democratic Underground

They have the gov't paid trolls out, trying to limit the outrage & rebellion on there.

If that is the reaction of hard core Dems to the news stories on the NSA, I want to stoke up some more of it.

Lots of traffic on DU.

It's the most popular Dem internet site, except for Huffy Po - where everything meaningful gets censored.


AUTOMATED MESSAGE: One of your posts has been hidden by a DU Jury

At Sat Jun 29, 2013, 06:11 PM, an alert was sent on the following post:

Paulbots Plan to Stroke up Trouble on DU


This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)


This entire thread is going nowhere fast. Whether it is true or not, I could care less, but I'm sick of the disruption and crazy talk.


A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sat Jun 29, 2013, 06:16 PM, and voted 4-2 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: This just fosters paranoia.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: All this crap with 'Paulbots' and 'Authoritarians' shows no class. The dumbing down of DU continues so long as these labels are bandied about.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: This newbie seems to spend about 90% of his/her DU time trying to "stroke up" conflict and turn DUers against one another. Sounds like a troll to me, and this thread is pure divisiveness.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: I agree with the alerter - DU has lost its collective mind
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: meh


You will no longer be able to participate in this discussion thread, and you will not be able to start a new discussion thread in this forum until 7:16 PM. This hidden post has been added to your <a href="/?com=profile&uid=272298&sub=trans">Transparency page</a>.

The link I posted came from the Daily Paul - A Ron Paul fan site. I fail to see how pointing out the obvious is seen as trolling. And I find someone on the jury calling me a "newbie" a little insulting. I've had this account for for over 2 years. How long do I have to have an account to get some fucking respect? This place is becoming nothing more than a cesspool of paranoid anti-American assholes who are devoid of any reality based solutions to any of the problems they complain about.
