D.U. jury. I've been on 6 over the last four days. I began counting about a week ago when

jury requests kept popping up. In my "not so humble" opinion I felt that most of the alerts were assholic in nature.

But the basis of the "alerts" has changed. People are alerting on posts that mention things that have been posted as factual on prior D.U. links. So somebody reads a post, thinks it is anti-Dem or is a R.W. talking point and hits "alert."

Instead of going to Wiki or Snopes and checking if the post might be based on fact, they hit "alert."

A post can be both true and a right wing talking point.

Democratic politicians do sometimes make mistakes.

Democratic politicians don't always act in our best interests: I refer you to Senator ...... and Senator....... who have received much criticism on this board, I was on a jury that judged the alert about a post that criticized one of those senators.

I know, I'm in a bad mood this morning. Kid ate all the Cheerios and didn't leave me any.

So, if I'm wrong, please explain before you hit alert.

For some reason, the OP was removed.  The comments seem to suggest that the DUmp denizens sit around all day alerting on each other.   :lmao:

8. I think a lot of the recent alerts

are just childish stunts of revenge. Many of them don’t seem to actually violate the DU terms.

For a bunch of old farts, they sure do act like children.  Can you imagine us lot sitting around hitting the alert button on each other?  I can't either.    They live life squinting at the computer screen, paranoid and  suspicious of anyone they come in contact with.  Our moles obviously broke them.   :rotf:

13. I only determine if true/not true

Some think, "I don't like this fact and don't think it should be said!" is a basis for anything.

It's precious. Sometimes I think not enough walls are painted in a calming pink color.

As for as adjudicating insults, just be creative. It's all I ask. If I laugh, we're good.

Well now. Thats rich, coming from the DUmp.  :p

  • ha ha, charade you are

That's my take on the DUmp as well.
They assemble special "MIRT" teams to try stomping out the moles and the rest of them sit around trying to figure out how to leverage power over their own team warts.
It's a sad bunch, that's for damn sure.

I saw a poster there recently who made what should have been a point everyone can agree, and that is that events that happened 100 years ago, 200 years ago, 500 years ago, 1000 years ago cannot be accurately viewed through the lens of the values of 2022. They further made the point of asking if the members there wanted people years in the future to judge them according to their future values. Not controversial at all.

But it is on Skin’s island whacko world. So the post was removed.

DU-folk wouldn't think of it this way, but when Snopes and W'pedia confirm "right-wing" facts, think of it as, "Even ______ confirms it is true," or an admission against interest.

And on that note, there was also this:

A post can be both true and a right wing talking point.

Even if something is true, some on DU want it ignored/suppressed/whatever.
