Democratic Underground Forums Shut Down!!! Couldn't handle the load...

Posted on 11/06/2002 8:07:03 AM PST by HamiltonJay

DU just shut down their discussion forums, claiming they couldn't handle the load.... I wonder if there was just to much dem bashing going on by their own members for that partisan freak running the place to take.

If we're this happy about DU's misery next week we might have a problem. But today? No. No way. Enjoy their misery, they've earned it, we've earned it.

Gawd, I am loving it. Does this make me sadistic?

Yes -- I've noticed the same thing --- and you'll see that they have that little "hot topic" icon (with the flames) they use it if there at least 30 postings how pathetic. I guess 30 comments constitute quite a discussion....

BWAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAA BWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!

However, I do appreciate that most of the posts I receive in return on FR are civil in attitude and don't slip into partisan name calling.

You weenie.

Welcome to FR! Actually we've had, and have, a number of articulate and intelligent left-of-center posters. My advice is to ignore the insults - there are FReepers quite as immature as the average DU poster, it's just that it doesn't seem to be nearly as many. Frankly, if the Dems had listened to the advice offered on this forum they might have done better last evening.

Lets face it this guy banned any dissenting posts on that site at all for the weeks leading up to the elections

They don't want ANYONE who disagrees with them no matter how much sense it makes! They're in their OWN little world and don't want ANYONE disrupting their thoughts or ideas! I was lovin' it reading all their misery last night and the TOTAL cluelessness of these people! They just couldn't understand it!

Someone posted a "Congratulations to the Republicans" thread, which wasn't nasty or anything... Man, it was yanked as fast as I could read the 6 or 8 comments on it! As soon as I hit refresh after 30 seconds of reading, It was GONE!! It was a BEAUTIFUL night!

Anyway, hope to enter into some discourse down the road on topics I can safely engage in without getting too flamed :o)

That's a great attitude.  Unlike DU, that bans any posters who do not parrot their misguided philosophy, we gladly accept liberal posters who can remain civil.  We will be glad to politely correct any liberal misconceptions that you may have :o)

Darn. I'd been enjoying DU all morning.

That's the reason they pulled the plug. Since last evening, there have been many comments from that site posted here - most of which were real knee-slappers. The gales of laughter provoked by their pained comments must've been too much to bear. It's the "insult added to injury" thing, and they can't handle it.

Of course, it's too late now... now we can laugh about NOT seeing their pained comments! :-)

I wish I could! It was late last night, and I did not save it. Of course, the first thing BS would do is "kick some a**".

Last night was the first time I actually went over there. Normally, I have no interest in what they say. It was truly an eye-opener. The depth of hatred and depravity was breathtaking.

I love it. I like to see the liberals exercise self hate. Almost all the opinions on why they lost: they were not far enough to the left!! The Rats will litteraly snap in two after loosing the Presidency in a landslide, 9 Senators, 20 seats in the House and several Govenorships in 2004. The tail will turn sharply left and break from the main party.

They realized how embarrassing and humiliating it is to expose the average rabid, clueless, violent and hateful Democrat to the scrutiny of normal citizens of all political persuasions.

Now you are assuming that these arrogant POS's care about how the nation perceives their actions and behavior.

Remember the behavior shown by their upper class leaders at the Wellstone Orgy posing as a funeral?

That was typical of the behaviorial actions and lack of morality of their leaders.

The Low Life Petty POS's on DU are dwellers in the shallow end of the left's pond scum DNA pool. They feel that they can never do anything wrong as they do their hate things against conservatives 24/7/365.

It's still there. You just have to bypass their whiney disclaimer on the home page. Apparantly even their own are being duped by it. Here's something I found there:

I feel like such a wanker. You guys were here all the time and there was me going out of my mind for nearly 4 GODDAMN HOURS! What's worse is that it took a hint from a thread on FR to get me to realise I was a dumbass.

A post on FR let him know that they are still alive there... LOL

And now for the good news. We wanted this one so bad, and many of us are depressed, shocked and hurt. The gloating of talking heads and Freepers certainly won't help things, but let's keep things in perspective. We really haven't lost anything! Things remain status quo - as they were before Jeffords defected. Even after his defection, there was no way to really stop Bush's agenda as several "Democrats" a la Zell Miller in Georgia were going along with him anyway. Even the Dems who should have had stronger backbones ended up capitulating on Iraq and the tax cuts - Thanks Tom and Dick and Joe. But now is NOT the time to point fingers and backstab, and lay blame. We do need to let the leadership know that they cannot continue appeasing this Administration. They do not know the concept of compromise - give them an inch and they take a mile. Before everyone starts crying about being time to go Green, remember the biggest stakes are in 2004. We need loyalty, organization and support more now than ever. If anything, this should serve as an inspiration to us! Think about it, an unelected Moron with a tanking economy and a far-right agenda made history by winnning his first midterm for his party. If he can do it...

Also, it does no use to claim voter fraud occurred. Not that I think it didn't happen, but without substantial proof, it will taint the one that we do know occurred, 2000.

The good news is that no more "it's all Bill Clinton's fault". If things continue to go sour, as I am sure they will(growing deficits = worse economy), they will only have themselves to blame. If the Democratic Leadership, learns from 2002, they will be in position to actually take advantage of this situation for 2004.

As for me, I will be more of a lurker here for awhile. I will not be watching the News as much. I invested far too much emotion into this election. I am going to continue to better myself in Work and my education - no one can take that away from me. And spend more quality time with my family.

We are good, proud, intelligent folks who stand for what's right, and stand up for the little guy. As long as you are committed to these types of values, as an individual, and hold them dear and true - the success of the idiotic and the corrupt can never truly hurt you. Be strong and true to yourselves and each other.

1. One point you make that everyone should read and think about.
"it does no use to claim voter fraud occurred. Not that I don't think it didn't happen, but without substantial proof, it will taint the one that we do know occurred, 2000."
If anyone wants to search for facts to show there was fraud great. But without proof it will make people even less likely to believe what we know happened in 2000.

2. Please
Can we please reiterate this over and over and over. Find the proof first before making the accusations. I'm not saying this was a clean election, I'm just saying we know what happened in 2000, we can't water it down by shouting 'fraud' at every Republican victory.

I think if Jefford's hadn't defected, and we hadn't gained control of the senate, that we probably would have won more in this election. Because it allowed republicans to paint us as stumbling blocks.
Completely republican control of the government for the next 2 years might be a good thing. They will have no one to blame but themselves for the screw-ups that result. They're already talking about expanding the tax cuts. That deficit isn't going to get any smaller.
