No flame, but I honestly couldn't care what DUrs do. They're mission is thinly based on anything resembling real reason or logic. Pure emotionalism gets you no where fast. They pitter out like a fart in the wind and move on to something else.

It's cold, cold statements like that which damage a DUer's self-esteem.



Well done, sir!!!

They lurk in hopes of a higher IQ rubbing off on them via osmosis!

This site only tolerates DU trolls that agree with the going opinion. Everyone else is harassed, called names, and many people call for the "trolls" account to be locked, which it usually is.

Want to try it, post something negative about Bush. It doesn't matter if you have been here 3 years and have 2,000 posts, you'll still be called a DU troll. It's happend to me several times because someone didn't like that I disagreed with their opinion.

an obedient, non-questioning member of democratic underground (the site which must not be hot-linked) who looks to their site for guidance, encouragement, and detailed instructions on what to say, or more likely chant, in the face of rational arguments.

Having been banned there myself, I can say that freedom of speech is quite dead on their site, and "you veel toe zee line or you veel be expelled" is the mantra of their Stalinesque moderators (with apologies to Stalin)

The only time I've seen people banned here was for personal threats, porn or bigotry. Certainly there are more Bush supporters here than those in the Kerry camp, but that's a natural byproduct of self-reliant people, rather than those living off the government teat (who would tend to favour a socialist for President) Disagree on DU and you are gone. That's why you don't see discussions in threads continuing for weeks as you do here (the dissenters are cast out). They have no equivalent of the Bear Pit for the feisty. Just the party line or the gulag.

The ironic thing is DU claims to be INclusive, but in fact is perhaps the most EXclusive board on the net.

How do you think I found this place?



Im just kidding!
Link Posted: 8/31/2004 10:02:26 AM EST
I doubt it. They don't seem to pay much attention to us ever since we stopped hotlinking them. I even saw a reference here to a thread on DU where they were talking about their records of what conservative sites are linking them, and they were wondering where all of us went. I would guess they're more concerned with the Freepers, though I don't spend enough time there to see. I tried it before, but I can get the same effect by beating my head against the wall.

I have found ar15.com posts copied word for word at the DU. I do the same thing here. I enjoy ghosting there, watching them come ungluded.

By choosing Kerry as their candidate, they may have put the nails in the coffin of liberalism. If it stills exists after November, it'll be a zombie. Without mainstream support, Democrats will become a coalition of radical fringe groups, absorbed with their own peculiar interests. Oh......wait.......

perhaps we should take pity on their tortured, wretched souls...

I have established a new website, www.medsforDUposters.com in hopes that we can give DUer's a helping hand.

open your hearts, DUers, let the angst pour out...

I would just love it if Mr B would start a thread here....really I would

My opinion on the matter ain't on the poll, so I'll just leave it here.

DUers probably don't troll or lurk around arfcom.
1) We stamped down pretty hard on the hotlinking
2) They just wouldn't think to come here on their own. They'd go to the Freepers, or troll on the Protest Warriors site (they're getting louder there this week) or some other site that is more obvious. Surely even if you mentioned a site like Arfcom they'd dismiss us out of hand as Gun Wackos that nobody listens too.

Luckily for us they couldn't be farther from the truth. Indeed, among many of the forums I'm on Arfcom has some of the best discussion (biased though it is) and some of the most informed posters on the issues.

We also have some fine people who link to asian booby dances.

Didn't someone post a list of 48 of them recently?
Link Posted: 8/31/2004 3:26:37 PM EST
I stick my head into their Gun rights area from time to time, and wonder how many of the pro-gun DU'ers must be tortured with each post, knowing they are f'ing themselves on gun rights by voting for Kerry.

In the last few days, there have been various posts with differing degrees of lucidity, concerning those that lurk here.
Murell's is by far the most lucid. Thank you, sir and I hope I spelled your name right.
So if the FBI caught the Commie psychopoliticians by accident while they were trying to catch one of us in a last minute effort to subvert the AWB, what would the DU lurkers think?
Would they be ... sad?
Wait ...is there a link between the Commie Psychopoliticians and the DU Lurkers?

Maybe they are shooters ???

DUers seem to think that thehighroad.org is the most popular pro-gun web site. There are more references to the high road than ARFCOM for some reason.
