16. ABSOLUTELY! Why else would people be so kneejerk adamant about that FEATURE?
It seemed unnatural, orchestrated, and unusually snarky--even for DU.

That's how I started noticing that the same people were bashing Dennis Kucinich in a way that was suspect for members of a Democratic board to act. A disproportionate number of people were being disproportionately nasty to him---and all in the same way, using the same terms and reasoning .

Something is very unnatural about the overreaction to the complaints about "unrec", and I've started threads to that effect right from the getgo.

I said it then, unrec gives those who blog in groups disproportionate power to knock things down or off of the greatest page. Thus the orchestrated reaction. Every time I tried to point out how important the greatest page was to people who only had a brief time to browse, I was met with another unnatural wave of "whining" claims. Now the claim was that people only whined about how unrec affected the greatest page b/c they "had fragile egos, and needed the greatest page to reassure them."

No, as snarky as this place has been at times, that's still unnatural behavior. I think we're seeing the new DU as well as the new Democratic Party under Obama. Infiltrated.
