I want to say goodbye to the wonderful people of this group. [View all]

I no longer feel that DU wants people like those who post in this group to continue to be members of this community. I was going to try to stay just to be able to say hello here every once in a while, but since realizing that we truly are not wanted here at DU3, that won't work. We don't deserve to be treated like second-class citizens.

This section from the DU3 Terms of Service says it all:

Don't go overboard with the crazy talk.

Democratic Underground is not intended to be a platform for kooks and crackpots peddling paranoid fantasies with little or no basis in fact. To accomodate our more imaginative members we tolerate some limited discussion of so-called "conspiracy theories" under the following circumstances: First, those discussions are not permitted in our heavily-trafficked Main forums; and second, those discussions cannot stray too far into Crazyland (eg: chemtrails, black helicopters, 9/11 death rays or holograms, the "New World Order," the Bilderbergers, the Illuminati, the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, alien abduction, Bigfoot, and the like). In addition, please be aware that many conspiracy theories have roots in racism and anti-semitism, and Democratic Underground has zero tolerance for bigoted hate speech. In short, you take your chances.


DU2 had the following:

Do not post anything bigoted/insensitive.

When discussing certain topics -- especially those relating to each human being's unique personal identity -- DU members have a responsibility to show greater understanding and sensitivity. To help promote a welcoming atmosphere for all of our members, the moderators are empowered to remove any post that they deem insensitive. Such topics include, but are not limited to: race or ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity, religious believers or non-believers, Jews or Judaism, Muslims or Islam, geographic region or place of origin, disability (mental or physical), weight or other physical characteristics, or age. Moderators may also remove any post using insensitive terminology (eg: 'cocksucker,' 'pink tutu,' 'bitch,' 'whore,' 'retard,' etc.).


What a change...

I'm off to change my password to a random value so this is permanent. We do have a group on Facebook if anyone wants to join us.






Lurking skeptics/atheists, agnostics, etc.: I'm sure you'll have great fun with this thread. Have at it...
