I'm seeing a lot of "We should just give up" posts

How do I look up a poster's history to see if this is a pattern that I should flag?

4. Why would you have a need to look up poster's histories?

Are you planning to follow them around or something?

Oddly enough, I have seen no increase in the number of such posts. Perhaps you can provide a few links, so I can learn what you are talking about.

Anyhow, DU does not provide a way for people to track what DUers post. Can you imagine why that might be?

Still, if you are determined to examine posts by individual DUers, you're welcome to start with mine. Just type MineralMan in the search box at the top of this page and examine the 164,000 results for yourself. That should keep you busy for a couple of years.

11. I just want to understand if it's an accidental drunk post, maybe my misunderstanding,

or a clear Russian troll. No, I don't have time to follow idiots around.

5. Search their username and read all of their posts.

9. Yes, you can use "Advanced Search" to become acquainted.

But no guts, depression, profound ignorance, impatience, bad temper, silliness, weak character, etc., are not reasons for alerting, even if they're demonstrated in post after post. Some are the sort of irritating gadflies who will always be found in any large group, but others are very sincere.

So follow the very good advice given. Democrats are, after all, a true cross section of all Americans except for those drawn to what the GOP has become.

(As a vision of Steven King's The Stand pops into mind.)

14. All I know is that everytime I see that handle

I picture the killer rabbit from The Holy Grail. (Even though you are 777).

7. isn't it more accepting and reasonable to understand each one of us is going through

this most difficult, frustrating journey as best we can?

I know I have good days and bad days....that's pretty human, if you ask me.

8. I'm seeing the opposite--lots of hopeful posts because Mueller seems to be moving forward

rather quickly and there are a lot of good developments today that are bad news for trump et al.

The only downer posts seem to be around the Donna Brazile article. Who cares? That's just more Hillary/Bernie infighting.

10. I have not seen these types of posts.

I am seeing an increase in posts questioning DUers motives in an attempt to divide us.

17. As I said, not going to get nasty without due cause (a couple of posts might be just a bad day).

But some of this stuff really starts to look like Putin's trolls, especially if it's a pattern.
