11. What nice things can't we have? Also what shows we can't have them? Are you calling Skinner out?

Cryptic titles with no information always seem petty and childish.

The way to talk privately on a public board is to use the mail system, unless, and without being in on whatever joke you and your two or three friends are using this OP for - You are just trying to stir shit without even having the posting integrity to tell us what shit you feel needs to be stirred to a smoother consistency.

Smells like rat shit, but because you lack all posting Etiquette and like playing games apparently, all we have to go on is the foul odor you've left in the room to go by.

Could be Bullshit.
Batshit.
Your own incontinence (and this one has my vote by the way).
Possibly even righteous shit (unlikely since you are too cowardly to explain your shit).

All you've allowed us to know is it smells like shit.

It also lends the appearance that you are calling Skinner out, in a very rude, very disrespectful way.

If you don't like the way the man runs his site email him privately and discuss your issues like an adult.
If after that you still find things so utterly unacceptable here, you can post somewhere else where you feel you are shown proper respects for such intelligent and fascinating posts as this - your current, cryptic, OP.

12. I honestly don't know who Skinner is.

 

I fully expect I am agitating people here though.

DU is possibly my last connection to being a Democrat.

I would go as far to say that if not for my ability to participate in DU, I would choose Independence.

Our elected representatives are doing little to retain my loyalty.

For the moment, my contributions are headed to the ACLU.

13. Skinner owns and operates the site, he is pretty patient and fair, if you like posting here it's

best not to flame him or any other members in fact. Just don't be nasty or disrespectful, he is Admin but also a fellow DUer and a human being that would like to be treated like anyone else here.

I have no idea what any of this is about but you really only have to worry about Skinner if you broke the rules or were a special insistent kind of asshole.

Treat him and others here with respect and no one will force you to leave.
Just mind the rules we all are required to follow (even Skinner) and you will be alright.

ACLU is the best choice in this day and age in my book, the bipartisan agreement with weakening the bill of rights has many of us very concerned as well.
