Please say something nice about another DUer.
Edited on Fri Sep-12-08 07:27 AM by MrScorpio
At some point, our natural predilection for navel gazing is going to become a problem

This is our bane as left-wing political junkies... The self hate and the worry-worting!

I think that we need to take a moment out for positive reinforcement.

Please humor me here.

Pick the DUer and flatter the fuck out of 'em.

You have to be sincere!

That's it.

Enjoy!

68. I've got to say hey to the KC-area DU'ers
You know who you are: realpolitik, evlbstrd, classicfilmfan, proud2Blib, MuseRider, Chat Noir, tblue, rhiannon55, SimpleOne (my nephew), KansYank and the rest. Thank you for helping me realize that there are other sane people in the midwest. Thanks for traveling, hanging, protesting and scheming with me. I can't tell you all how much I miss you (and your common sense) each and every day of my life.

I love each of you and want to thank you for making my life better than I ever dreamed it could be. Thanks for making me laugh, making me cry and just being some of the best friends that a person could ever hope to find in one lifetime. I miss you all and we're still planning on coming home (permanently) asap.

:loveya:

202. Ah. I'll explain what happened:
the poster you were responding to, made a jokey post in "jest".

you replied with the word "jest" even though you meant "gist of the thread".

the combination was delightfully funny, especially if you didn't intend it.

it was like Biden accidentally calling John McCain "George..." before correcting himself during his acceptance speech. something Josh Marshall called "the most dead-on message flub..." :rofl:

anyway, i'm not making fun of you, it was just a funny thing i noticed here.

13. Nominated.
Great idea. Difficult, too.

I came to DU on the same day that Patrick Fitzgerald was assigned to the Plame scandal. My goal was to post for a while, and then communicate some of the issues involved in the Plame case. I expected to be here until July 14, 2004.

I have come to find DU the most interesting and valuable internet site. I could easily list 100 people here who I have great respect for. This includes several people who I often disagree with, and rarely speak to. Thus, I'll just say that I think highly of all those who are sincere participants in the ongoing discussions and debates on this forum.

18. There are several DUers
that I learn from each week. There are even people with whom I wildly disagree, or who have a style I find annoying, who are brilliant and have knowlege on subjects of interest to me that far out pace my own knowlege. What a great resource this site and its regulars are!
But to be exact, I found this place via a comment left by Readmoreoften, and I for that I am thankful indeed.

62. Well, nothing motivates like insults.
Get off the phone, shut off ur computer, and do something useful by VOLUNTEERING AT UR LOCAL OFFICE

Ur part of the problem or ur part of the solution


http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

You never answered my question. If all this is so crucial, and you clearly see yourself as part of the solution, what are doing on DU? Shouldn't you be on the phone or VOLUNTEERING AT YOUR LOCAL OFFICE?

And if you tell me that you have time to do both, then you think that just maybe so do other people?

Maybe you shouldn't shit in the nest you just made your home in.

Those people I love. that pretty much includes nearly everyone here.

But of course, WilliamPitt sticks out, because he is very cute in a mysterious way,always lurking, but not always posting...you can just feel him..the anticipatory.. proximity...but sexy in a mostly cranial capacity. There is nothing sexier than a smart man! Okay, that's it for now!

129. * * * Grantcart is one of the most INSIGHTFUL posters on DU * * *
Pick a topic, any topic, and he'll frame it in the proper perspective and help it make perfect sense to the rest of us. And he always goes one step beyond that, adding something with deep insight that allows us form our own opinions and consider an angle we mostly likely hadn't thought of, or couldn't find the words to express.

Too bad he's not my type. He doesn't use enough smileys. :D

There are many here whom I admire...

Nance Greggs for her incredibly brilliant prose

JeffR for his insights, his great pictures, and for the DUzy's!

And WCGreen for his passionate writing and very clear thinking

And many, many more...

Too numerous to count!

He could add SO much. But he's got some family things going on, and moved to another state, so he's got good reason......I suppose. Still I'm QUITE sure they have internet access there!. He'd been checking in from the library, and said he'd have his internet hooked up soon, but it's not soon enough for me!

95. WTH? Only 1??!!1!
Will Pitt and kpete for obvious reasons, Frenchiecat for her soul, Swamp Rat for his art and that tear on that soldier, DU's own pittbulls: OperationMindcrime and lesser known kristopher both for being the heart of the dog in the fight, flvegan as my hero when it comes to saving dogs, Phrgindumbass and Grantcart-especially for their work during the Obama/Clinton-Wars, unhappycamper for posting all those veteran related threads each morning and MissHoneychurch-my only link to the kind of sanity that is all things German....if only I were twenty years younger(attn single men: brains, looks, AND Miss H knows how to cook authentic GERMAN COUSINE!!!) Hissyspit for his tireless news updates, Fox Mulder and Oeditpus Rex just cause they aren't the freepers everyone things they are-(just kidding-you two have made me chuckle so often), I could add others who are no longer with us-Crazy Guggenheim and Maddy McCall I miss them both-(well except that damned grinning toad of Maddy's)... actually the list is much much longer, almost endless actually! I have learned from and been entertained by and even been hugged by so many many DUers....btw: half on this list above I have never even spoken to but they have indeed EACH made an impact on me!

BUT YOU MrScorpio, YOU HAD TO GO AND ASK FOR ONE!!!!

So I'll pick 2.

I would like to focus on our fellow DUers: BigBearJohn and Iwfern

BigBearJohn.
Early on when I was under a thousand posts I learned to click on his threads. They graced the Greatest Page now and then and his were the OPs that held my attention. His journal's first entry is typical of things he would post here. Please note a willingness to reach out to our counterparts in the republican party, that is a rare trait and one I fully am in agreement with: http://journals.democraticunderground.com/BigBearJohn I found this from him from back in '06-please note his responses throughout the thread, #8 being noteworthy because again he reaches out to folks: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

During the O/C-wars, he and I were on opposite sides of the fence. I was actually sad about this, his pain and anger were evident. He fought hard for his candidate, stood his ground well. When it looked like the wars were coming to a close, I thought we would lose him, THAT NOTION BOTHERED ME! I believe I may have let him know about that-that his words would be missed, but he hung in there. Then he accepted defeat with an open mindedness that was quite impressive actually-he chose to explore the good side of Senator Obama! I still remember his announcement to support Obama 100% he added the things he liked about the Senator and how lucky we were to have him as our nominee. (I wish I could locate it in my endless lists of bookmarks-it was a worthy read especially taken in context of the time and what we had just been through here in the DU. All things considered I really thought his transition was cool!) DU dodged a bullet when BigBearJohn chose to stick around.


Iwfern: I'll be sexist for a moment, the name once conjured up in my mind: a young lass, the kind that needs protecting from the big bad world. HAH! Nothing could be further from the truth! I have only had one encounter with this DUer that I can recall BUT what an encounter. I was busy saying glowing things about Larry Flynt, (I even had a Larry Flynt quote in my sig-line back then) and then Iwfern jumped in and flamed on my parade. She got slammed by others right off the bat for her comments and I was willing to let her have it too but luckily I entered into a debate with her. The debate may have gone on for 4 days-neither of us were willing to give up. Our posts are a bit below halfway in this thread:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

In a sense, we were BOTH right but what stands out for me is that when it was over my life was changed somewhat. I dropped the Larry Flynt quote in my sig-line directly after our debate but more importantly I see all women differently now. No BS-I truly TRULY do see women differently now and I think this is a great thing! It was this very debate which did this to me! If I never post another thing in DU I will take away from here my gratitude for what she did to my worldview. Ranks right up there for me along with the day I was first taught how evolution worked!

Recently I was walking my fave dog with a lady-friend and she made a sexist joke about blond women. Prior to the debate with Iwfern I would have found the joke uproariously funny but no longer. This time it was my turn to have a discussion about the promulgation of sexism in our culture and how it is spread not just by men but by women too. My friend still thought the joke was funny, (I've not given up on her), but she no longer tells sexist jokes so much, nor racist ones at all either! I have Iwfern to thank for this change in my perception. When it comes to both sexism and racism I now see a bigger picture than I once did. How cool is THAT???

There ya go MrScorpio, I hope this was what you were looking for, you should be on my list too btw, right up at the top actually, you are the only OTHER way cool radio personality I have ever spoken with but then you had to go and force folks to pick ONLY ONE fellow DUer!!! What kind of torturous insanity is THAT???? My head hurts now thanks to your outrageous ONLY ONE constraint! I just missed most of the Hurricane Ike coverage because of you!!! (grr-grr) It's Ok, you can admit it you are a lurkin freeper sent to torment folks aren't ya! : ;-):

they always make me smile, even though I've never met them.

And kudos to Blondee, my Norman, OK connection. If you're still in Norman (I haven't checked your profile), we should meet when I get get back to the US.

Love your name btw.

Phrigndumass and Grantcart make one heck of a tag-team. But it's hard work starting a conversation with "Phrigndumass said..." :rofl: Thankfully, the work speaks for itself :)

I appreciate all the well-known DU stars already mentioned in this thread

Sniffa, Old Crusoe, Tahitinut and Chimpsrsmarter - for short & sweet, on-point lines and zingers.

BklynChick, Genevieve and Renaissance Man - I don't often see but like what I catch.

I don't find anything about DU to be "left-wing;" as a matter of fact, it's been years since there was any feeling of "underground," and the board has drifted so far to the center-right that we now promote the Democratic ticket in Republican colors. Look up.

Still, I can say great things about lots of DUers. In no particular order:

Madfloridian is a loyal Democrat who staunchly supports and defends traditional democratic principles.

NSMA, while no longer a DUer, is someone I remember with affection and respect. She is a strong, clear, smart woman.

PlaidAdder: posts infrequently, but always worth reading, and thinking about.

Uly: A man of intelligence, principle, and, thankfully, a lefty who is still at DU.

DesertRose: While she rarely stops by these days, her threads in the Meeting Room when I first joined invited me in and created community.

Dover: An open mind and heart, and a deep well of ideas, thought, and things to explore.

Zombie, always good for a cup of coffee and a discussion of good music.

There are many, many more. I could probably think of something to good to say about every DUer, even those I've battled most fiercely with.

There are so many great DUers, and some make me laugh, some make me cry, others make me think. After 7 years, and 13,000+ posts, I've had my share of faves.

Symbolman really stands out today -- he did some wicked flash things during the Bush/Kerry GE.

Nance Greggs
grantcart

143. buddhamama is the nicest DUer ever.
I have learned so much from her.
She is very (and I mean VERY) intelligent and quite knowledgeable on many issues.
She has the biggest heart of anyone I know.
Her voice is as wonderful, and as kind as she is.
Everyone should be lucky enough to hear it.
She is also funny as hell.
And very loyal to those whom she calls friends.
I am still in a state of disbelief that a person like her actually exist.
She is a dear friend and sometimes shrink.I have nothing but love for her.
She is absolutely positively amazing and will probably blush first,then kick my ass later for writing this about her. :yoiks:

144. Lala_rawraw is a really good writer. We need more like her.
Her articles are so good, they get ripped off by the press.
How many of us can say that?

When I read her profile at HuffPo, it knocked the wind out of me because of what she has had to endure just to get here.
Since I was born in the United States, as a child, I never felt like I couldn't trust the federal government.
I grew up in a safe, sound, secure environment here in America.
At least I thought I did, I wasn't aware of an evil federal government bureaucracy.

Unlike lala_rawraw who had to learn how to deal with the environment she grew up in, knowing that she couldn't trust the government that ran the country she grew up in.

It caught me flat-footed reading what she had to say.
Because then I realized that this election will truly have an impact on every nation in the world.
We can NOT afford 4 more years of Bush's policies.

Some people complain, some people whine.
But lala_rawraw is actually doing something about it.

145. Ava "brings it home" to me. She makes it clear we need to fight for our future.
Anytime a young 14 year-old girl starts a web site in a red state like Alabama, you know the Republicans have done something terribly wrong.

Ava has been fighting for the future of our country for almost 4 years already, and she's only 17 years old!
She will be 18 next month and gets to vote for Obama in her very first election, to make a difference in this country.
How many of us were as politically hip at her age?
She's smart, articulate, knowledgeable, good looking, a great speaker, and a fine example to the rest of us how to be a better person, and a more effective liberal.

173. He was excellent! But even my mom who loves Obama and Biden was down
on him today having heard that he's saying "Hillary would have been a better choice"

I saw that speech too and that statement was taken out of context.

He was super strong today ... I'll have to look and see what the negative fuss is about
if it isn't the Hillary comment.

I was teary by the end, he's good, he was more focused today.

Can't even remember them all-I like many DUers that I haven't even ever interacted with.
Lots of random DUers-Uncle Joe, n2doc,forkboy, depakid, zidzi,yardwork most of the people who post in E&E and the Vegetarian forum.

Meh-I can't choose or list them all...there are too many. Sorry Mr.Scorpio-I can't do this :). I have almost certainly forgotten many DUers who I haven't seen post recently.

But, I will say about the one DUer I know a little bit more than most others-cleita-she is one of the kindest, nicest people I have ever come across and it has been a real privilege getting to know her.

163. My introduction several years ago was another Dur' labeling me a freeper...I remember smiling
when I read that and felt that I had arrived...its almost like an induction and it makes you part of a team, though so many years have passed I feel like I haven't personally accomplished a darn thing but through so many dur's those past and present, those still with us those long gone but never forgotten I feel like I have grown in ways I never thought possible, I still have loads to work on but with the help of so many here I have no doubt one day I will be able to feel as if there was a reason..

This site has been a life safer in some ways, has almost cost me a divorce and thats still not out of the question since he is so against Obama but I wake up every day and know that there is a place that can help in giving me the tools to make a difference for my country, one I once took for granted as so many others..

Though I am mostly a ghostly shadow I still know many of you and there are just far too many durs to name that I could flatter outrageously, so I will just say thank you to those that are real and let you know I appreciate you guys to no end...and to the rest who simply come on here to be annoying, I hope as I have you've learned something valuable along the way, and what I have learned is its really not about winning, its about caring...really caring...I hope one day you can too.

177. There are many, MANY DUers that I love to read and/or just make me feel good
But there are two that I would like to call out, both were both strong HRC supporters.

pirhana. She reminds me a lot of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Fierce (at the time I certainly didn't appreciate it) in her support of Senator Clinton, but since the primaries has been an outstanding advocate on behalf of Barack Obama. I don't say this lightly, I am in awe.

straight shooter. She didn't get into the nasty battles, but she had always felt like a familiar soul before the primaries, and there was a time when I thought that she would leave the DU community. Of all of the wonderful Hillary supporters, the thought of not having straight shooter here was the only one that really hurt when I thought of her not being here. Turns out that she is posting again and I am thoroughly grateful for that, she is a wonderful person.

179. OnTheOtherHand has put up with more crap in Election Reform than I would wish on anyone anywhere
I have no idea how he manages to stay so calm and informative. He posts back and forth with nitwits, to put it mildly. The mistreatment of OnTheOtherHand and Febble in that forum is the most disgraceful thing I've ever seen on DU.

DemocratSinceBirth and tritsofme have always done an excellent job refuting the nonsense cheerleading claims, that we'll win Georgia by 30% en route to 450+ electoral votes. DemocratSinceBirth has a terrific grasp of politics in general.

trumad busts me up period, here and in the Sports Forum or wherever, with his off the wall threads.

183. I agree with so many above, but one who hasn't yet been mentioned is TahitiNut.
Great insight and that wacky sigline always makes me smile.

Also Colbert Watcher for always bringing the funny.

192. JeffR and Wetzellbill, sometimes a good laugh is needed to keep you from going crazy,
I think Wetzel is running for something and I want to vote for him but he's never on my ballot.

193. Pretty much everyone who's already been named....
NanceGreggs always makes me laugh, FrenchieCat introduced me to the term "pastorbaiting" (and I'm hoping it can be used more frequently now that we know Ms. Palin has Pastor problems), DuStrange, KitchenWitch, Writer.....


pretty much everyone (except those on my ignore list, all three of them ;) )

205. Old Crusoe was great to me when I first got here.
He's not a person to do a lot of OPs, but when he replies he is always thoughtful and full of encouragement. Also, when he disagrees, he does it in a most kind and most measured way.

I love reading Nance too.
