I'm so proud. I finally joined the club.

I responded to a post from the main page that apparently was actually a post from the Hillary group, and got banned from their group. I am happy to join so many other Bernie supporters.

1. Just checked to see if yesterday's pardons included the bans from Hillary's group

nope - still banned.

Welcome to one of the largest groups on DU - or so it seems.

2. I don't want a pardon

I've never posted there intentionally and have never planned to. And I have expanded my Ignore list from any Hillary supporter who posted something snide or inflammatory to anybody who identifies themselves as a Hillary supporter. If you are a Hillary supporter, I don't want to know you or have anything to do with you. And I'm sure the feeling is mutual. Better that we just not interact with each other.

4. I don't either - I was curious

Sounds like we did similar things.
I responded to a post that was a flat out lie about Sanders.
After getting beat up, I responded again with some what I thought were cogent arguments. Boom - I was banned.
I had been here 10 years + and did not know about group powers and their ability to ban.
Previously I thought if someone posted lies, misleads or omissions we had something of an obligation to set the record straight.

Never had anyone on ignore before. Now it is a long list.

Don't know if I can weather the gloating that will be coming. Been here a long time and really like it, but sometimes you just have to walk away.

5. We shall be eventually banned

 

when the purge comes.
They have a list of our names there too. Why else would they keep them there, unless there is a purge coming at some point.


BTW-- I'm #49.

3. I was banned on my third post here because I was new and

had no idea there were 'rules' about 'groups'. I inadvertently wandered into a 'Nancy' snake pit of a thread and made a comment about whiplash when a certain candidate will swing back to the right. It stung but since then I have learned the ropes and several nice folks here have shared similar experiences with me.

Welcome to the Club!
