Secret Service pays a visit to DU.
10-26-06

Posted on 10/26/2006 7:24:44 PM PDT by Arcy

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? ;-)

I wonder what the USSS agents in question did to get punished with having to investigate posts from the DUmp.

But when I answered the door in a speedo and tinfoil hat they just laughed and went away.

Notice that Dimmer was reluctant to tell folks what posts the USSS were interested in contacting the authors.

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.

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.

It's a tough thing -- how do you tell the differene between "keyboard courage" after a few beers and a genuine, dangerous lunatic?

Glad somebody's doing the job, but just as glad it isn't my job.

Amen to that! I went over there years ago to see the other point of view. It was like wading in a sewer. The language, profanity and general lack of basic English writing skills was startling. Quite a difference from FR!

Classic. Years ago I pissed off a bunch of DUmmies when I wrote letters to targets of one of their numerous ineffective boycotts, informing the companies they were being targeted by lunatics, some who have threatened violence and implied death for Bush would be a good thing. They complained and made Jim Robinson pull my posts for not having enough to back them up.

Looks like this time it's not a question any more. And surprise surprise, DU's chief monbats are defending those who made threats.

agreed. Some very disturbed and possibly dangerous-in-real-life people on that website.

I stopped looking at it a few years ago -- simply too bizarre even for laughs. 1/2 of them are psychotic and the other 1/2 are delusional.

Also, they have practically no sense of humor at all, and any attempts at humor at the DUmpster are very lame at best.

HAH, there's a thought: how many LFT's are really SS agents stirring up the ants?

Would that a real LFT would ask that and get a reaction...

Please tell me you had the tinfoil hat covering your big head, and the speedo covering your little head, and not vice versa...

The stupidity, ignorance and hate can be overwhelming. The majority of people on these sites fall into different categories - young liberal kids who don't know crap, intelligent kids (of all ages) who've fallen for the party line, enemy operatives of any stripe and crazies.

Who the heck could stand all that caterwauling and whining over at DU for more than a few seconds? I've gone over there to check them out, and all it is is victimized screeching. Put a sock in it, commie oafs.

I chat in Boston Tea Party political chat and about a couple of years ago one chatter, posted a question once in which he said that he was trying to get a fund together for someone to shoot the presidentn, and for anyone that is interested to send him a private message . Another chatter immmediately notified the FBI. Unfortunately he was in Hungary and there was nothing the FBI could do. Plus he was moving around a lot

Well, let's see...

FR getting all kinds of pub today re the Ditsy Chicks (H&C, Nightline, etc).

DU is, too, though probably not the kind of pub Skins was hoping for.

Should be a song in there, somewhere...

People who ride a bicycle back and forth to "college classes" for 12 years can become pretty unstable. Many of them are worried that someone is going to shove a diploma into their hand and tell them to get a job. That's the people that post on DU.
