1. I have seen this posted for Bernie followers

...in order for them to swarm the process. It troubles me because many people who have been part of MoveOn all along will be drowned as swarms enroll in order to influence the endorsement process. This seems unfair. What should have happened was for them to quietly run a vote among the members already enrolled, the actual MoveOn community.

but we can make it more difficult.

3. I'm not taking this or the DFA "endorsement"

too seriously. Both are excellent organizations that support liberal causes/candidates and both will throw their full support behind the Dem nominee in the GE no matter which Dem candidate they endorse at the primary stage. That is the most important point.

If it makes people better to swarm all over internet pools in order to "convince" people that their choice is the "best" progressive choice rather than to get out and actually stump for that candidate, fine.

All that said, I am a MoveOn member and will cast my vote for HRC.

9. Exactly. MoveOn began to mirror places like FireDogLake, and that was too much for me. Dumped them

& haven't looked back.

11. They send too many emails.

Moveon was great at first, but then politicians wised up to the online petitions and started ignoring them. And the email was too much.

12. I think that is their purpose.

To get email addresses and information they can use.

14. I'll avoid the naked attempt at getting more contact info, thanks

The Berners are more than welcome to this clicky-clicky.
