I've served on the jury some (including one of Tav's today). Honestly, I have found righty bashing posts being hidden. One example was from a poster who was insulting conservatives and said they had no intention of civil discussion with them. The insulting post was hidden. The one I voted on with Tav today got hidden. It was one bashing gun rights activists (to put it lightly). By contrast, there was one a while back insulting a Democrat politician (Conyers), it was voted to leave it. The logic was that Conyers wasn't a member of the board.
I won't say this board is always fair and it sure isn't always civil, but I think some are trying.In memory of Ahmed Merabet, Rafael Ramos, and Wenjian Liu.

Donations and fundraising drives to raise $25,000 every three months are a different thing. A non profit organization can still pay out salaries and I guarantee you that $kinner is drawing a nice one.
How much money do you think they make from those seasonal fundraisers on top of every thing else? You know when they start buying each other Easter eggs and stuff.
$kinner knows that boards such as CU and CC are very popular as they allow all opinions and don't simply ban a person for not agreeing 100% with the views of the administration of the board. So $kinner is trying out something new and you will be seeing a donate and fundraising drive soon. Trust me on that.

Why would you waste your time there? The board was clearly set up so that the liberal base could attempt to prove to the conservatives how wrong they are. $kinner is a smart guy, he thought this out before launching the site and then advertising it on DU.
Lanie you are so much smarter then most of the idiots posting at DU and DU lite, don't let those assholes get you worked up and I would much rather see your opinions on boards like this one.

Yep, discussionist was meant to expand skin's customer base, but I think it will ultimately fail. I don't see what's no novel about having all ideologies able to post, those boards are a dime a dozen and a waste of time IMO. I wouldn't give a penny to David Allen OR Jim Robinson because posters are paying both of them a full-time salary, but you're posting for free for them. Forget it.
Posting on discussionist is futile, and I think there's already a rift between DU and discussionist. People that bought stars at DU realize some of that money is going to support discussionist and they resent it. The "premium membership" probably will come but he's spreading himself thin here, IMO.

Why debate them when all you do is come here and repeat what they say at DU...not to mention defend them?
You don't want to debate them...you want reassurance in your batshit crazy liberal beliefs...something you and other Libtards don't get here...hence the reason we don't have many of them here.

Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid
To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
