In the discussion thread: Election 2016 Too Close for Comfort [View all]

5. I have observed much complacency on DU

It often takes the form of DU users not wanting to hear bad news. Do you see anyone recommended this thread - no, and I expect that is partially because no one wants to wake anyone up and suggest that they get heavily into GOTV if it means spreading bad news.

I have also seen this in posts where DU users have called people "trolls" because they dare to point out that the race is getting close - like "how dare you bring bad news here". (Hopefully given my record of being a huge Hillary supporter they won't resort to those tactics with me.) All of this points to the general attitude of - "Hey I am happy with the way I think the election is going - don't be rude and shove reality in my face". That is the worst form of complacency.
