I keep seeing a lot of threads started with "concern" over something the poster finds that is negative towards Hillary. Their "concern" seems more like trying to game the system to put in negative things about Hillary, but try and keep from having their post removed. It also seems like a lot of the old "gang" that left, are coming back to cause more problems. They find some "concern" post and rec it up to keep in front and center, just like they did during the primaries.

We don't need to see the same crap again that we saw in the primaries.
