DU is a great place to learn about ideas of all kinds from an incredible number of sources.

It is one of the reasons I really like DU.. There are so many different sources, and so many different topics.... It is just like being in a huge library where you pick up the magazines and other resources with the push of a button. Also, there are many ideas generated by those who frequent DU. We share in presenting the research, and in share in presenting our ideas. This place can be educational, as well as fun. I try not to take the arguments too seriously, because that could ruin my day. Just look at all the topics and groups and the number of links posted here. Incredible!

... Overall, DU is my favorite place to go on the internet.

1. I agree. For myself, I take it as just another discussion board,

 

albeit relating to political news and current events for discussion amongst fellow liberals, progressives, and Democrats. I can't seem to imagine a day without it, lol, but of course, there is life beyond DU, too, so I also tend to not take anything here very seriously.

14. Yes, this board should be for all Dem's: Not just for political campaigns

 


Sanders supporters, should go to his Web site to work for him,
Hillary supporters should go to her Web site and work for her,

I don't like these posting from Sanders people that seem to want to
speak for all liberals.

It is also just plain gets boring arguing back and forth, when we
need this board to collect info,

This board should remain a place where liberals and Dem's can talk to each
other:

8. Well, for one thing there's all the Pastafarian jokes

And I keep having to remind them that "The quality of Mercy is not strained."

And the cow jokes? C'mon! When will they ever loin? This is high steaks serious discussion!

And don't even get me started on the chicken threads and their poultry concerns...

Or our Muslin President and all the immaterial comments...

Sheesh!

9. Agree. The demand for fact checking is one of the greatest things about this site.

It's really hard for anyone to get away with just saying shit. You have to be able to back it up.

And most discussion is really civil and snark free.

I love it here. It is my safe house.

26. I agree with you, our fellows demand we check the facts and also format.

If the post does not make sense because of format problems, like links, or grammar, or spelling (yes, I got caught by the spelling/grammar police in the past) It if fine with me if I get called on it. And if my facts are wrong..(like you said, "saying shit" our fellow DUs will let us know. And most of the news and discussion here is clean, clear and factual. Kinda addicting, but that is ok too. I wish everyone the best for today..let us sail along.....

11. I agree and find it a great place to learn. I do object to those that want to limit what we discuss

 

by misusing the alert system. This is a liberal message board and we should have the default of leaving threads in lieu of locking them. Just a pet peeve.

25. And all of our friends here

All of the close connections we've made with people we've never even met in real life, but for whom we care deeply. So much so that losing one, like blondeatlast or middlefingermom or the others we've lost REALLY hurts.

R.I.P. to all the great DUers we've lost. We love you and miss you.
