I hope I am welcome to the Hillary Clinton group

Hi everyone,

I recently got banned from the Bernie Sanders group. I posted over 20+ positive articles to the group. Due to a slip up (I accidentally posted something in the Bernie group when it was meant for GDP), Autumn has permanently banned me. I pleaded with her to give me a second chance and that I was willing to take a suspension and go on a probationary period, but she was firm in her decision. So, I can never post in the Bernie group again .

I've never posted in the Hillary group before, but I'm willing to be a good trooper and post positive and interesting articles about Hillary Clinton. I usually post in GDP, but I like to get away from it once in away and take a breather. I hope you guys welcome me and I will do my best to help Secretary Clinton get the nomination and win the presidency. Thank you.

-Ptbl

1. Hi PTBLiberal.. i've seen you post positive Hillary articles in GDP.. There are not too many of

those so they're easy to spot.

Welcome to Hill's Group then!

In my opinion you're way better off that events turned out as they did.. but that's just me.

3. You can be banned from the Bernie group for post on GDp, they have to wait until you post in the

group and out you go. We have some battles left to work, we are ever onward here.

13. Welcome to the adults table.

Our Statement Of Purpose is simple, positivity amongst Hillary supporters.

We also do not believe we need to lie here to help our candidate, she is the best one running right now and her record speaks for itself.

Again welcome.

I've just been posting here, especially when I need to lower my blood pressure after seeing some of the nonsense posted elsewhere (the straw man arguments drive me particularly crazy!).

In any event, welcome!

16. Welcome!

I sort of stumbled in over here myself after Mrs. Clinton impressed me in the debates.

So far, I've been very welcome and I'm not the rah-rah sort for any political candidate. I simply think Mrs. Clinton is the best choice for President in 2016.

24. So let me get this straight

you posted pro-Bernie articles like the dozens I keep seeing making the trending now and greatest threads and you get banned? Wow, that's just. I am freaking speechless. I'm so sorry, the hosts here are excellent and won't do that to you long as you follow the groups rules. Again, I'm so sorry that seriously sucks

25. Jury results..



On Wed Jan 6, 2016, 04:00 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

I hope I am welcome to the Hillary Clinton group
http://www.democraticunderground.com/110732719

REASON FOR ALERT

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

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Calling out another DUer, Autumn and the protected group is piling on. Of course, the target, Autumn, cannot respond here in the protected group.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Wed Jan 6, 2016, 04:04 PM, and the Jury voted 0-7 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: What the hell? LEAVE IT.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I think the alerted post is a bunch of junk, but I just don't like hiding posts if I can avoid it. I would rather the OP self-delete, apologize, etc.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This is alert-worthy? I think not. I grow fatigued at having to adjudicate clear abuses of the alert system by folks who are apparently fishing around for a sympathetic jury draw so they can exact revenge on someone else for some slight, real or perceived.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: "Piling on" ... Seriously? Good luck in your new home, PTBL.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: while I don't like the naming of names, I would let this stand. This DUer is IMO trying for a second chance due to an error. It was mistake that he was banned (not blaming Autumn, she didn't know it was a mistake at the time), but I think the DUers is sincerely asking for a reprieve. Anybody can make a mistake.

30. I got banned too, for asking how Bernie intended to implement his proposals.

I made it clear I wasn't being snarky, that I appreciated what he stands for but can't figure out how he can do what he say he will. Once I was attacked I said I thought it was a bad idea to attack me rather than defend Bernie (and I was VERY careful to be respectful). Boom! I was out of there.

I HATE how often that group pushes things onto the front page and then those of us who have irritated them can't ask anything about the posts. I'd say the same about this group or anyone. It's the absolute worst way to get people to your side.
