28. JURY RESULTS..

On Thu Dec 24, 2015, 09:31 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

What a fucking asshole!

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1107&pid=31135

REASON FOR ALERT

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

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Personal attack.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Thu Dec 24, 2015, 09:52 PM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: No explanation given

Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: I wonder if the alerter would have voted to hide the personal attack made by the poster that this person chastised? This so called attack is mild by comparison. I will not give the alert stalker his wish and vote to leave this post.

Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: In comparison to the post being replied to, this is MILD.

If THAT post is what the Democratic Underground stands for, it's going to run people away from the Democratic Party. There was nothing in the post H replied to that warranted such a vile post.

There is no reason for a homophobic posts like this, with a touch of beastiallity included, to be on a 'liberal' discussion board as DU claims to be.

Yet this is what the majority of DUers term as acceptable discourse? What does this have to do with political discussion? How can Democrats discuss issues that matter to the nation with this kind of post being allowed to stand?

Sadly, my vote to leave this, a common but unfortunate comment by one poster to another, means nothing, it will be hidden. Yet the more egregious post was allowed to represent the new face of the Democratic Party to the world.

If I did not know real life Democrats who would never attack someone for their sex life with such pejorative terms, others who are seeking to escape the insanity of the party of Cruz, Trump and the rest will not want to stand with us to defeat them.

Since Management has mainly adopted a hands-off policy (and I really don't blame them,considering the kind of community that DU is becoming) nothing will be done about the true offense of the post of which H is proud. The vote will go solely on the basis of Team A vs. Team B, or whatever this place consists of now.

I used to post a lot here, but honestly, conservative websites are less abusive than this kind of comment. I won't visit them because I cannot countenance their swill, but this place is making me lose hope that anyone can govern this nation in a just and equal manner.

Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: I'm not get in the middle of this kinda shit, esp on Xmas Eve (or Xmas, if yer on the East Coast or whatever, just not in L.A.).

Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: Frankly, I agree.

Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given

Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given

I wasn't on the jury but a juror sent them to me and I wanted you and everyone to see the results.

Thank you for your post, ronny and Merry Christmas~
