    A quick word about expectations.

    Recently there seems to have been an uptick in complaints about the prevalence of other opinions here on Democratic Underground. This happens from time-to-time. I suspect that this time the catalyst was the nomination of Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. This post is to remind you that if you want this place to only represent one viewpoint, you are never going to get your wish.

    If you post something supportive of President Obama or the Democratic Party here on DU, some people are going to disagree with you.

    If you post something critical of President Obama or the Democratic Party here on DU, some people are going to disagree with you.

    This is as it should be. DU is a diverse community which includes a broad range of progressive opinion.

    If you want to share an opinion without having someone disagree with you, then whatever you do, DON'T POST YOUR OPINION ON DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND. Because if you do, some people are going to disagree with you.

    Thank you for listening.

    PS: And while I have your attention, I would like to remind everyone to make an effort to be civil. We may disagree on a number of issues, but there is no need to be disagreeable when we disagree.

    DU is an echo chamber that the hive mind uses to talk with itself. That there are slightly differing opinions indicates that the hive mind is schizophrenic.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
