Raise Your Hands: Who has been banned from the Bernie Group?

I have. I'm sure most of us have. I accidentally posted a response a few months ago without realizing I was posting in their group. There's currently a discussion over there right now about how we are too sensitive and quick to ban. Have they looked in the mirror?

1. The comments that got me banned were very mild ones,

I support Bernie Sanders for God's sake. His supporters, on the other hand, can tend to be assholes. The day is soon coming when I will be banned here, I'm sure. Why not?

I like and admire Hillary Clinton. I happen to think Bernie Sander's strong stand against powerful banking and financial interests would be good for the country at this particular time in history.

I defend Hillary Clinton against scurrilous attacks. That was probably what got me banned and labeled as a "fellow traveler" by the Bernie people.

3. I am not supporting Senator Sanders (I-VT) in primary.

I stay out of their 'safe haven' and I wish they would stay out of ours.

Unfortunately, for many of 'them' it has never been about supporting Sanders.

That's why they keep violating our lone sanctuary.

and then they go whine about it.

I respect their private space.. I would no more go in there and disrupt like they do then go into someone else's home. In fact I trashed their group a long time ago so I don't even have to see it.

very, very, mild. Was banned within minutes. I actually love Bernie but I also like Hillary. I just know I will vote for the Dem so it doesn't matter to me. I think they might be a little over zealous though.

It's simple, really: Candidate groups are for supporters of that candidate. Unless it's an honest mistake, I don't know why anyone would want to. A little self control is all it takes.

I've almost posted on their threads, since they brigade their rec count and get silly crap on the front page, but I recheck before posting and have managed to avoid it thus far.

I'm sure I'd be blocked in there, no matter what I posted, but I'm an advocate of the safe haven concept, so their pool, their rules.

21. Never been there. I think that groups should be reserved to members of the group

We don't like pro Bernie's post here and we should not post there, or on O'Malley's.

There are other groups on DU where one should not post what is against the purpose of the group.

This is why we have the DP: P where we can debate Bernie and others.

I think that if one is upsetting members of a group, an alert should be issued and the post hidden. I once did this from one of the groups - and I rarely alert - and the post was hidden because it was a group.

I've been at DU since the *selection and I've never seen people who cannot tolerate a different opinion than these folks. Sorry, but you won't convince me with that kind of behavior. I like the man, but not his supporters. I refuse to have such a rigid ideology that I cannot see the forest for the trees. A republican win in a race as important as the presidency goes beyond party, it speaks directly to the health of this country and it's people. Everyone will lose if that happens.

I'd previously thought that "hiding" their group would ALSO hide it from this web site's home page. (IT DOES NOT.) So, one of their threads in the "hidden" group was visible to me from the home page, I clicked and commented and was banned.

Oh well. No biggie. Why does this bother them so much? They ban, we ban ... big-whoop ...

54. Keep in mind, this group was exported from DU2. The Bernie group was only

formulated after he declared his candidacy. This group goes back to the 08 primaries.


Any numbers differences have to do with one group being here for almost eight years, and the other being here less than a year.

I was kicked out of that group for telling the group that coverage of his candidacy announcement WAS being covered (despite those riots in Baltimore that were interfering with the event) by the television media, and providing links to prove what I said. I was the 2nd person banned. I didn't say a word against the candidate, either. They just didn't want that particular fact corrected.

Here's a list of those of us who have run afoul (scroll down a bit):

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=about&forum=1280

If they want to shape their membership, that's fine with me. We do the same.

They shouldn't be throwing rocks in a glass house, though.

I hope - hope - that it was just my login handle that made them decide to do that. But given how much they're falling into conspiracy theorizing these days, I'm not so convinced.

Angrily not wanting to hear anyone else's opinions is one thing. Completely rejecting reality is, well, flat out being an extremist nutcase.
