Concerning "Goodbye DU" posts

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by mcar (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

I suggest that such things are a waste of time.

The HRC crowd does not care in the slightest, and will use such posts as an opportunity to insult, taunt and/or belittle the writer. They are not going to ask/beg us to come back, so each time such a post appears, they will cheer and count it as one more scalp acquired.

They have made it quite plain that they have this in the bag and that they do not need, nor want our vote. Let them have their gleeful grave dancing, but it should be met with silence.

Don't leave, just lurk and avoid talking to HRC folk, who will be easy to spot. Deprive them of the pleasure they get from a reaction of anger or sadness.

In fact, my suggestion is that if you agree with this view, you simply post a silent assent. If you want to discuss the issue, PM me.

Of course, it is still months away from the election and a lot can happen in that time. So, their victory dance may still be quite premature.

1. People have been posting "Goodbye DU" threads

 

for a very long time.

It has always struck me that a huge amount of ego is involved, and even though periodically someone does it whose posts I'll miss, most of the time my feeling is one of "Don't let the door hit you on your way out."

People choose to leave for lots of reasons.

14. If I ever decide to leave and not come back I will want to say goodbye.

I have been here since 2003 and DU means a lot to me as do many of the posters.

3. If they want to leave they can leave. I don't consider it a victory.

6. The only victory will be a more civil place, primarily concerned with getting Democrats elected

I anxiously await the terms of services being enforced and an end to the constant trashing of Democrats. If that means some people need to leave... Bye, Felicia. And if they need to be dramatic in the way out, I'll snark as I see fit.

11. I love it. "Bye, Felicia".

Do you think they get that reference?

7. Such threads are a legitimate form of performance art. You don't get progressive cred until you act

 

out in a similar immature manner somehow.

Plus, all of the "cool" DUers are doing it.

9. Democrats getting to select their nominee (who doesn't happen to be yours) is "grave dancing"

Classy...

10. I would never post a GBCW thread if I left DU.

Because such a thread would set a new record for occurrences of the words "door", "hit", and "ass".

13. I'd rather see a goodbye post than yet another picture of Clinton with Kissinger

or how we're supposed to set our hair on fire because of emails or something she said twenty years ago. A goodbye post at least has a point.

15. As a Bernie supporter I care. I want to know where people go or if they're chased out
