|re Discussionist - it needs more rational people to show how adults address issues.
I joined, I went, I commented.
.... And yes, there are the typical Conservative Drools, but I would like to appeal to DUers to get on the site and start posting some sensible posts. If you don't want to comment on an ignoramous's post, then don't. But at least put up some sensible posts - just like what you would put up here - to show how grown-ups carry on a real discussion. By posting sensible comments and not responding directly (you can always put up a post that contradicts the idiot post you don't want to comment directly on) you are showing you don't think it is worth commenting on.
For those who are alright with it, you can comment on the idiot threads to show they are regurgitating Bullshit (provide excerpts from valid analyses by experts and show those who are open to it, how a real discussion of an issue is done) but it's not really necessary. It would be nice to see some more sensible posts/comments put up there. Put the same comments there as you would here. It may mean a few people might see something they would not ordinarily see.
Anyway, that's my plea.
