On Sun Dec 21, 2014, 07:25 AM you sent an alert on the following post:

Look closely.


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


self explanatory


A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sun Dec 21, 2014, 07:35 AM, and voted 6-1 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Mixed feelings on this one...the poster probably thought they were being funny or clever when in fact they looked stupid...But not willing to hide for being stupid.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Jeebus Christ....did you take a wrong turn at DI and end up here?
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Over the top and around the bend. The stuff banning is woven from. MIRT?
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: "What sensible human being would want to rape"???? I presume the person who wrote this thinks rapists pick their targets based on some sexual attraction; and are "sensible"? Seriously? I guess that explains rape as a weapon of war, as a weapon of torture as reported in the torture report, prison rape? What kind of person even thinks something like that?
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Rape is not a matter of sensibility. this is a really horrid post.
Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: "Want to rape"? As if someone wanting to rape a woman is bestowing some sort of honor?

Thank you.

#1 yes, STUPID should be hidden because DU is not a STUPID message board. Raise the level of discussion, please. Stupid, short-sighted, greedy people is a lot of the reason why this country/nation/world is in the shape it is in. Do us all a favor and hide STUPID.

accepted, too. Usually they'll reject 2nd Alerts with the comment that someone else already filed.

I detest Coulter for her politics, but I wouldn't think about commenting on her looks or sex-appeal. That's puerile as well as sexist.

EDIT: apparently there was a long line of alerts. Offensive to many people.

EDIT2: just got the notice, already alerted.

Bigoted posts like that need to be on a two or three strike basis. One comment puts you on probation for a long period of time, two/three in that period gets you banned after a review from MIRT. There should be little tolerance of bigotry. I understand saying something stupid once in a while, so not all hides should be used for this, but bigotry is not something that should go off the record easily. It contributes to a lot of nastiness on this site.
