    REMINDER AND UPDATE: Five hidden posts and you can't post

    Back in September, we announced some changes to the way the site is run. In that announcement, we promised that we would make the following change, after a 90-day period:

    If you have five hidden posts on your account you will be unable to post.
    ... If you have five hidden posts showing on your Transparency page (a 90-day period), then you will be temporarily unable to post. In order to regain your ability to post, you will need to wait until the oldest post of the five is more than 90 days old and "falls off" of your record. At that point you will only have four posts showing on your Transparency page, and you will regain your ability to post.

    Due to a fluke of scheduling, that new policy was supposed to go into effect on December 25, Christmas Day. However, because the DU Administrators do not wish to spend our holiday break fixing the inevitable bugs, we have decided to push back the launch date.

    The new launch date is Monday January 6, 2014.

    Members whose transparency pages are showing will be restricted in the following ways: 1) they can't post, 2) they can't serve on juries, 3) they can't serve as hosts in forums or groups, and 4) they can't serve on the Malicious Intruder Removal Team. If they are currently assigned as a host or as a MIRT member, they will be removed by the software.

    Members whose transparency pages are showing will not be restricted in any other ways. They will be able to send and receive DU Mail. They will be able to recommend threads. They will even be able to send alerts (this is so people can't insult people who are temporarily blocked).

    Thank you for being a part of DU. And have a happy holiday season!

    The DU Administrators

    Of course, people have been taking advantage of these new rules to their enemies!!! Looks like
    the beatings will continue!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    It's a sad day when Stormfront allows greater freedom of expression on its site than a place called Democratic Underground.

    That being said, it's fairly easy to get tossed off of Free Republic too.

    It's being pushed forward just like Obamacare.

    Did I say Stormfront? I meant Accuweather.

    Understandable mistake, as they both involve lightning:

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    These guys want to run very aspect of life in America; they can't even run a website without turning it into a dictatorship.
