Skip to comments.Secret Service pays a visit to DU.

In a posting by the #1 idiot (David Allen - AKA Skinner) over at Dark Underworld, he advises his fellow kool-aid drinkers that they have had two inquiries by the Secret Service earlier today.
As someone who occasionally strolls by their web site for a few gut-busting laughs, I'm not suprised comments on their site would arouse the attention of the boys in black.
Here's a snip from his post to their members...In the five-plus years since Democratic Underground was started, we have had legal issues arise on a fairly regular basis (Not surprising). When that happens, we almost never make any sort of public comment about it.... But an issue (an issue?) has come up this week which we feel we should probably share with you (ya think?), because we think you should know what we are doing to protect your personal information. (This idiot is more concerned about protecting the privacy of his members, than the threats his members made on the President!)
... Fortunately the members of DU are generally level-headed (hardly) and respectful of the rules, so we have not had any problems with this issue in the past. (Then why all the legal problems?) But today we have had two separate inquiries from the Secret Service about posts on our website. (haha)
The inquiries involved three posts by two separate visitors (You mean Members) to our website. Incidentally, both of the people in question were banned last week (yeah, right) -- before we were aware that the Secret Service was looking into their postings. ..
The United States Secret Service has asked Democratic Underground to hand over any identifying or personal information we have about the two individuals in question.
I bet when Clinton was President, we had many more inquiries.
Remember all those black helicopters? ;-)
What do you expect from the DUmp....ROFLMAO !!
The SS needs to be a Moderator 24/7 on that site.
I wonder what the USSS agents in question did to get punished with having to investigate posts from the DUmp.
Is there a reward? Pitt said he was going to hide in the woods.
But when I answered the door in a speedo and tinfoil hat they just laughed and went away.
No kidding! Expressing themselves in a coherent manner is not one of their strong suits.
It seemed like a weekly event.
You guys laugh at stuff like this -- but I've seen stuff online that genuinely scares me.
Why doesn't Dimmer put up the posts for discussion by the DU jury?
Oh yeah, Dimmer doesn't want to overload the USSS with even more work.
Hope the Secret Service Agents wore Haz Mat suits and had their shots all up todate
I've seen it too! There are some REAL wacko's over their. Some of them haven't seen the sun in years.
They sure use the "F" word a lot. Their vocabulary is very limited.
Yup...like the junk that guy from Wauwatosa wrote about planting dirty bombs at NFL games......that was spooky stuff. Putting a message on the net that threatens anyone is incredibly stupid. Threatening the president is even more stupid and deserves a visit from the SS.
I'm sure you're finding plenty of DUFU fodder.
