Are we not worthy of their hate like free republic is! What must we do to become far right whackos. I feel slighted.

They fear our political sanity will infect their fuddled little skulls. The DUmp is an incubator for newly hatched delicate little liberal minds that need to be protected .

They mention and quote free republic all the time. We are intolerant to. It's not fair!

They can't mention this site.

Even the capitalized letters "CU" will get zotted over there.

I think it has something to do with our forum which quotes and then comments on their posts over there. I believe they might not want to expose any of their minions to a reasonable critique of or response to some of the outlandish things that get said at the du. Remember, there's not a lot of disagreement that is tolerated on their site. They also don't want to give us any more of an audience.

LOL!!

Ahhh yes, CU is the Site that cannot be named!!!:D And it's not just us anymore,
there are several others now, places the DUmmies go to after they get
Teh Granite.

Back when Crusty first started CU we were mentioned often and had members
here on CU that were also long time DUers. At some point in time Skinner decided he didn't want to give us any free mentions so we became "unnameable".

Meh, whatever.

He prolly realized he was loosing hits to here because a good fight in generally more fun than sputtering in a vacuum. TO THAT END - I suggest that some of our DU moles do some recruiting :) we need toys to play with! And try to find a couple that are smarter than kiki . . . .

The DUers know about us no matter what Skinner and his Admin buds may say.

We'd welcome any DUer over here if they want to come over, no problems. The DUers that have come over and been banned here lost it at some point and started going off the deep end. They shouldn't have a problem with us, for God sake I've posted on Lib boards before and lasted years on some. People call you names...big deal...if you can't take that then you shouldn't be on any board. Most people in my experience know when they have crossed a line. We're pretty lenient here but I'll only put up with so much. :D

Note to SuperCrash - Death Threats are a nono. :rolleyes::D

If someone wants to get nasty we have the Dome but check the Rulz there too before you get carried away...

No, CU is not important enough to hit their radar. [/shitstir]

To be fair to DU, they're mostly borrowing from a few select forums of the website. The rest of it is hardly mentioned. Truth be told, the rest of it isn't that bad. I know this personally.

$kinner and the Inner Circule are frightened that the Denizens might read something over here and question the limited wisdom found on DU.

Its like in Nazi Germany that it was a crime to listen to the BBC, or how the Soviets tried to block Radio Free Europe. They're just another little cyber fascist state that fears free minds more then anything else.

You listening $kinner? One day, liberty will not be denied!


UP THE REBELS!!!

Banned Websites
I think it's time to add Free Republic to the list of banned websites.

IMO, anything posted from there is by definition is a violation of DU rules. And, rules aside, it's just plain wrong and totally against everything DU stands for.

Thoughts?

15. i completely disagree that certain sites should be banned...

...from being referenced on DU.

it's deeply and obviously wrong, imo.

13. nope.

17. From the DU rules
Do not post messages that give publicity to websites that have little purpose other than to smear, disrupt, or complain about Democratic Underground. Currently there are only three websites that fall into this category. Their addresses are not listed here because we do not wish to give them publicity. They are easily identified by their bizarre obsession with Democratic Underground.

This, to me, seems to be a clear reference to Free Republic.

19. No, it is not a clear reference to Free Republic.
If you saw the other sites, you'd understand the distinction.

There are subforums dedicated to us, with daily comments.

Free Republic mentions us from time to time, just as we do them.

IF you saw them, but of course, we can't tell you what they are to let you go see for yourself and form your own opinion. Excellent encouragement of free thought and discussion there.

I think DU should man up and create a Best\Worst of CU forum. Post all the terrible right wing propaganda we spew and tear it apart with typical DU razor sharp insight, logic and evidence.

I'm glad I typed that, there's no way I could have said it with a straight face. :D

I think they need to update that passage in the rules. There are a number of sites the DUmmies aren't allowed to link to. Some of the "9/11 Troofer" sites, the wackjob Progressive Independent site, Alex Jones, Wayne Madsen, and probably some others.

Don't know what specifically the third one is supposed to be.
