Anyone here miss DU as much as I do? [View all]

I started browsing here in 2002 and joined a few years later. Then, the fights were over Olive Garden...corn flake chicken...and who hated GWB the most. My husband and I were hired to start up a homeless shelter at the end of 2007 so I must admit I missed a lot of the 2008 primary drama. I was an Obama supporter and happily voted for him that November.

So was it really as ugly then as it is now? Can DU really recover? I hope so. I was pondering earlier today how 3 people think enough of me to give me hearts for Valentine's day. And so many of you have done that for others...people you've never met and more than likely will never meet.

I'm fond of so many here. Even those I disagree with...even those I currently have on "ignore". I respect and listen to your opinions. Sometimes the responses--on both sides--are vicious. I've probably been guilty too, no doubt.

I just hope that this time...next year...we all can enjoy being on the same page again by celebrating a newly elected Democratic President. And a left-leaning Supreme Court
