145. Ha ha ha! You're not gonna get your wish that way!!

You're going to have to go the "Walt Starr" route.

Find an admin and direct a vile and offensive post directly at him--if you really are serious, that is, and aren't just posing.

See what you did with that post? You managed to get one of your allies, who responded to you, a HIDE. I don't think you meant to do that, but all you're doing is hurting your own team with your personal display of pique.

190. I know, he asked to be banned. He moved on and as I told you, since you seemed to think it was the

end of his political world, he moved on to a larger audience, as no doubt, Catherina will do and so many others have who have moved on from DU. Some have achieved success on radio, on tv, on larger forums etc. It's not the end of the world to move on from DU.

Why did you think I was not aware of Walt Starr's request to be banned?

Just wanted to provide you with information you were unaware of.

It's a big internet and people can now choose where they can do best for whatever their political cause may be.

I think it's great.

No doubt we well continue to read Catherina's work elsewhere. Like many others, she apparently felt the need to move forward.

195. Do you always take things out of context and come up with scenarios that are congruent

with your thoughts, and your thoughts alone?

Who said anything about "...the end of his political world?"

Answer--YOU. And you alone.


Just wanted to provide you with information you were unaware of.





This poster has asked to be, in essence, tombstoned. The only way that is going to happen is if she pitches the shitfit to end all shitfits and gets so many hides in short and rapid order that the admins decide to act against her, or if she confronts--as Walt Starr did--an admin directly with some sort of rudeness or invective. After all, the admins have said they can toss anyone of us over the side if they don't like us. This IS a private website. With a ToS, too.

All snarking and saying "fuck" and tossing direct insults at Clinton supporters is going to get her is five hides and a time-out. To have one's account devolved down to NAME REMOVED status, she's gonna have to do better than that. That's ALL I'm saying here. Not sure how or why you, in your imagination, believe otherwise.

But you go on with your suppositions about what you imagine other people are thinking. They've no basis in reality, but they do no real harm.

'take things out of context' re your posts. Maybe it's not everyone else? Your statement was what it was. I simply provided you with info you clearly didn't have.

204. You didn't do a very good job of reading what I wrote, that's for sure!

You make assumptions not in evidence as to what I knew, too. But how nice of you to "volunteer" to edify me. And to volunteer your curious little opinion about how you (and you alone) believe that unnamed "a lot of others" view my comments. Aren't you a little "discussion board bundler!" You aggregate everyone's views, and so helpfully pass them on!





Here's another kick for the thread--not sure why you want it kicked, like you assume some sort of 'ownership' of it, but whatever. It's certainly a case study in something--just not quite sure what. It doesn't come close to Walt Starr's opus.

199. Jury Results

I voted to LEAVE IT ALONE.



On Fri Nov 20, 2015, 09:44 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

Thank you but this is more than a day
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=7366758

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Calling the DU admins "neolibs" and "fucking war loving cowards" would appear to be a personal attack.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Nov 20, 2015, 09:57 PM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Can't see why would need to be alerted on at all
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Why hide if she's leaving anyway. I say, let her rant, we all need to cuss and let it all out once in a while, maybe not always on DU, but we all need to occasionally let it all hang out.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

68. Most of the democrats who MADE this site it seems. The ones people come here to read, they

sure don't come to read that divisive nasty stuff that has become prevalent here lately. I expect more people will be moving on to other venues where they dont' have to contend with the trolling and other non Democratic nonsense that gets a pass here lately.

Well, it was once a great place to actually discuss issues. But a small group has caused a lot of good Democrats to not want to waste their time here.

The discourse here has taken a hard turn to the shit in a hurry.
I can't keep up with the drama.
Just an every day reader,seldom poster.
(Someone usually says what I'm thinking better than I can.)
I'd hate to see DU go south. But everything seems to be these days.
Anyway, feel the Bern

184. Everything has its season. Partisan forums like this are becoming more like the comment section

of Utube, unfortunately. But on the good side, it's a far bigger internet now than it was back when DU was a great place for Democrats to go. So plenty of places for people who care about ISSUES to go to advocate and engage in activism for their candidate.

5. It has become very difficult to watch Democrats getting on board with

with neocon/liberal policies.

Lots of silence on Libya since it was turned into a futuristic Mad Max scenario, as many of us predicted it would be. And no calls to help the victims of the NATO invasion of that African Nation.

Not a word about the murdering of civilians, rapes and torture that has driven so many out of their once relatively advanced nation now in tatters thanks to that invasion.

I don't blame you a bit Catherina. Lots of people are moving on to other venues where there is no tolerance necessary for the warmongering whether it be from Dems or Repubs.

186. This actually makes me happy. It explains a lot.

I couldn't believe that so many intolerant asses were coming here and calling themselves "progressives" when they were anything but. I was beginning to think that the so-called left wing of the Democratic Party was going full-bore "Fuck the Government" Tea Party Leftish.

I've looked askance at some of these alleged Sanders supporters, but if this is a targeted effort, well, I will keep my jaundiced eye at the ready.

36. I had to look up the 'bye Felicia' thing and this is what I found:

 

bye felicia

When someone says that they're leaving and you could really give two shits less that they are. Their name then becomes "felicia", a random bitch that nobody is sad to see go. They're real name becomes irrelevant because nobody cares what it really is. Instead, they now are "felicia".


I'm saddened you had to 'go there' but it reflects more on your character than anything else.

238. That tells me how to take posts authored "bigwillq".

And I will.

I take posts from many others with more gravity.
For me DU is also a place of learning.
I don't like it that Catherina is saying goodbye, and I don't like it that I understand her reasons and think she's probably making the best decision, for herself, for her development as a person.

I see a complete fracturing of the Democratic Party, as expressed on DU.
But it's an asymmetric fracture. On one side is $money$, $war$, $MSM$, $war-profiteering$. There's no war atrocity that these fuckers wouldn't sign onto. No plundering of natural resources, or of people who might get in the way. On the other side is a people with no established power, yet being the most sizable population by far.

Catherina is on the good side of that split.

That's one reason why I don't think your derision is funny.

100. Dear Catherina, someone actually alerted on this.

 

But the jury had better sense.

On Fri Nov 20, 2015, 03:47 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

Thank you & please, PLEASE, keep up the fight!
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=7366811

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

" rich US Black neoliberals all too willing to exploit poorer Blacks" racist bullshit,leave AAs out of your public temper tantrum!!

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Nov 20, 2015, 03:54 PM, and the Jury voted 1-6 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Easy to refute. Why hide?
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I am not only leaving the alerted on post, but alerting on the results to admin so they can see the nasty alert.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Understand the alerters concern, overstepping
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Passionate concern for oppressed and exploited people is very Democratic.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

I was very young at the time but most impressed with people who took their citizen commitment that seriously. You were dressed as Jesus with a sign that said "Who Would Jesus Bomb".

After the march we went to a bar and I dance to 50 cent PIMP and asked you to dance with me. You wouldn't lol, preferring to sit at the bar with Terwilliger.

HellHathNoFury and WillyT were there.

the OP. Just as we were maligned for opposing Iraq and for opposing interference in Syria or any other of the PNAC list of nations to destroy. And that too is not a CT.

So I get why Democrats who predicted the results of all these Imperial interventions, it's been 15 years of it now, so we have seen the horrors they have caused, have become disgusted to see their own party which we thought might be the end of the Cheney/Bush FP going along with any of it.

236. This progressive got mad because she got a post hidden. Deservedly,

because it contained call-outs on two DUers who weren't there to defend themselves.

So she appeared to be the person doing the bullying, not the other way around.

53. I don't post much, but I've been here a long time and always appreciated your posts.

I understand, though selfishly I hope you'll reconsider.

I'm disgusted with Democrats who don't seem like Democrats, too.

My own democratic Congressman here in the liberal northeast voted to close the doors to Syrian and Iraqi refugees. That Congressman then called a local Muslim activist to reassure him that the bill didn't really have any teeth or add new restrictions; it was symbolic. So he voted that way not even in a misguided attempt to keep Americans safer, but to take a symbolic anti-Muslim refugee stand? That's supposed to be reassuring?

And I have another friend who knows Link Chafee, who was the sole Republican to vote against the Iraq War. Chafee said if you studied it, it was clear that the Iraq war was based on lies. He said Clinton didn't care. Just didn't care at all. That's why he briefly ran for president; he was appalled that she'd go to war for political expediency. He, on the other hand, lost the backing of his political party with that vote...he was willing to lose his career rather than go to war over lies. And he comes from a military family; his father was a WWII hero.

Yeah. I understand where you're coming from. Love to you, too. I'll miss you.

All of us progressive, Bernie supporters are the force which drives the post count which supports DU and we will be long gone. If he is not the candidate, I have a number of progressive Democrats I'll campaign for at the federal and state level. DU will be irrelevant.

141. You have to turn off your own account--either walk away and forget your password,

or change your email address to some garbage email address AND change your password, and lock yourself out.

You're still on the membership rolls, in any event, even if you stop posting--it's like the Roach Motel up in here, you can check in, but it's harder to check out.

Unless you choose to post a few dozen really offensive posts (beyond the churlish "big fat fuck you" nonsense--that's just your own snarky pique, and nothing more) that get your posts hidden....of course nowadays, you'll have to get REALLY offensive (perhaps use a few banned terms) because it's amazing how many simply rude and crude comments are left to stand.

So--if you are SERIOUS, mind you-- let rip with a few B or C words, or maybe some slurs against a minority group, and you'll rack up those HIDES in no time, and then you'll be well and truly "turned off" from this place, "immediately and permanently."

If that's REALLY what you want, of course...

227. Wasn't there a famous thread where Skinner banned someone making that request?

Forgot who that was, do you remember it?

I keep thinking it was a guy named 'Ken Starr' but that can't be right. It was funny.

That might be the ticket for someone who wants their account suspended. The guy demanded Skinner ban him, then got profane with more demands, and finally, Skinner granted his wish.

The idea of just not posting to solve this problem seems odd. But there are websites where one has to ask to be removed by administrators.

DU isn't one. Skinner's solution is to change one's password to gibberish and not record it, thus one can't log in again. Not under that same name, anyway.

Bet that Skinner not deleting members helps with the site's ad revenue.

His departure was quite ... epic, as the kids say!

150. I have posted here for over a decade

Mostly under a different plum de nom. I despise these goodbyes. But in your case I am sad and hope you will reconsider.

153. OMG, Catherina. I feel as though I was just getting to know you.

You are one of few posters whose recent posts I search out when I get to the board. What a huge loss!

I love you back However, you must do what is best for you. I wish you only good things in life and many of them.

But I come and go from here, so no doubt that goes both ways.

I'm sure we'll see you again.

Happy Holidays!

173. I'll never understand your irrational hatred toward me.

It really is borderline, the hidden post calling me and bravnek out, I'm in good company if I'm included with bravnek.

What I do suspect is you probably aren't the only one who hates me, literally seeths at my posts, and I think it's sad. Pitiful.

I find this to be upsetting in a way. Nice to have a partner, though, even though I have no clue what we did to her.

198. See, Catherina... Juries can have brains...

On Fri Nov 20, 2015, 09:44 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

Thank you but this is more than a day
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=7366758

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Calling the DU admins "neolibs" and "fucking war loving cowards" would appear to be a personal attack.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Nov 20, 2015, 09:57 PM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Can't see why would need to be alerted on at all
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Why hide if she's leaving anyway. I say, let her rant, we all need to cuss and let it all out once in a while, maybe not always on DU, but we all need to occasionally let it all hang out.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

Too bad she got the date wrong on when I learned of BLM. It was after Trayvon that I first heard of them. I have no idea why the attack was necessary. So many terrible things said about me the past few days. Strangly enough it is by people I barely know or talk to.
