DU is a political discussion forum

This is not Facebook, this is DU.

The reason this site exists - specifically - is for political discussion.

If you are not interested in discussing politics, or if your primary interest is in telling other people discussing politics to shut up - then might I suggest you find a website to play with in your leisure time which is not about politics?

Why did they change the flavor?

Same thing with Crayola crayons. They taste a lot waxier than they did back in the 60's.
