1. I still do. Foolishly, I'm sure and probably not for long.

Think Iím on the way to be 86ed and should probably leave before that happens.

4. Rarely post. Seems most OPs are either focused on speculation and not discussion. Or

more gossipy. I sometimes post something I think might be interesting ó like one I did recently about the great new Dems added to the Oversight Committee like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ro Khanna, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib ó only to find no one really cared about talking about it. Sunk like a stone.

As far as responding to OPs, I trash a lot of threads. Sometimes I might post an opinion on something not Clinton or Sanders related, particularly if itís about healthcare policy since thatís my button for sure. But my progressive leanings donít seem to be in sync with many of the posters left so I usually delete my thoughts before posting them.

Some events gain no traction or are discussed very little. I use trash thread a lot.

6. Still here, don't post

I will have DU open in two different browsers. I will be reading in the one I'm not signed into. When the urge to respond overwhelms me I go to the other browser to look for the thread and post that riled me. I usually can't find the post because it is someone I have blocked long ago. Keeps me out of trouble.

Waiting to see what Bernie does.

8. I visit from time to time..

 

DU has become meet central for the #neverbernie crowd - that much is evident.. more like "alt-center underground"

Just check out all the vitriol aimed at AOC - they're not even being covert about it anymore..

reckoned with.

11. I can't see how there will be any,

 

even slight Bernie supporters left after 2020 primary around here..

AOC is an obvious target - if/when Bernie runs & she back him, cause she will... that will be the end for me around here, cause I will jump into any thread shitting on her - it is my duty as a Boricua

14. I'm still around too.

I took many months off posting (not reading/reccing/alerting, though) out of sheer disgust with a few incessant loudmouths. The pointlessness of those vacuous, meaningless echo chambers trying to couch themselves as discussions...
During that time, aging hit my parents really hard and my dad ended up passing away, now Iím caring for my mom. This has put the vacuous mean-spiritedness in even more stark relief. I rarely if ever even open those threads now. But Iím solidly here, just not there.

18. I read way more than post anymore. Have had too many hides to continue...

...the Bernie Hate Brigade doesn't like being called out for the bullshit and there are too many of them that all post in the same threads together. Their victim complex is equal parts annoying and infuriating. I don't block anyone so I see all of it and just sigh.

22. I'm thinking about unhiding/blocking everyone..

 

just so I can see how bad it really has become.. I am sure my disgust level will only increase... but then they can see me & report, which tended to go down when I started blocking.. it's a tough call

twitter has become my savior, no rules & regs (for the most part).. and unlike FB I don't mix friends/family into it so I can really let lose without offending anyone, not that I am one of those over the tops offenders or anything

I tuned out from FB in 2016.. one particular "friend" became abhorrent.. I've learned low info voters are the worst ppl to get into it with..

23. I rarely even show up,

let alone post. What would be the point? The goal of those that have helped evolve this site into Democratic Above-Ground Establishment Centrists is not to advance any issues, but to make sure the progressives in their own party are ridiculed, demeaned, shouted down, and silenced. Who has time for that?

I wondered if any actual progressives are still here, so I checked in the Sanders group; if any are left, I figured this would be the place to find them.

34. i am one who reads mostly

And I havenít blocked anything because I want to see what is really going on.

That said I donít argue here. Some people are looking for an excuse to pounce.

I have been here since 2004 and it has changed a lot. In the beginning we were unified to get Bush out. We need to get back to that place to stop Trump.

I am not sure after watching the last election this blog can unify.

I am leaning towards Kamala this time although I still love Bernie a lot.
