If you are worried that the "New Dems" are going to run riot over the forum and silence all meaningful opposition - then surely they must even be even more worried that their point of view will be censored. Is it possible that some "New Dem" types might alert on a post and a jury which happens to comprise of a majority of 'New Dems" might unfairly censor the opinion of progressives who are more critical of the President and the Party? Yes, it is possible. But the opposite is just as possible - if not more probable -given that they are in the minority and we are in the majority. If ANYONE, progressive or "New Dem" abuses the alert and jury system to silence descent - let us all resolve to turn it around on them - until they have learned their lesson and have learned to play nice.
