Why I bought a star. [View all]

I do not have many posts but have been poking around in DU for years. My sister, DUer SmileyRose joined back when it was WhistleAss vs Al Gore. She eventually got terminal and asked me to keep an eye on the site for her. She love you guys.

Immediate I saw why. Despite the turmoil lately and the loss of some familiar names, I think this website has a valuable roll to play in my life. I've done everything from kill time, to play fight, to roll eyes at the games others play, to get a real education on issues or to simply open my mind to different viewpoints.

At the end of the day I am grateful to Skinner and Elad and Earl G and whoever else is turning the knobs behind the curtain for this platform. Also the DU community for everything you've given to me and to my sister before me.


And it did not escape my notice that I never saw that DU robot once during this last debate / DNC fiasco thingy. The investment in new hardware obviously paid off. Wish I could have given more to the cause.....
