A very important DU Public Service Announcement:

General Discussion: Primaries is for general discussion about the Democratic Party primaries.

In case you somehow missed the giant banner that you had to click on before posting here at plain old General Discussion.

And that includes the whole "I was just making a general, non-election related comment on X Democratic Candidate, No really, I was" thing. Because no one believes you and that's just pathetic.

Some of us consciously avoid the ridiculous shit flinging insanity that is GD: P for a reason. Not that there's anything wrong with shit flinging. Just fling your shit over there for a reason.

I'm glad I can bring this to everyone's attention, and I'll expect beaucoup hearts for everyone in return for the public service I have provided today.

I was beyond glad that GDP started early this cycle because it was getting nuts quickly.

I would also add those who are abusing LBN to post opinion pieces and other not remotely "latest news."

...by allowing us to use our heart credits to either add or subtract hearts for others. Can you imagine partisans for a particular Dem primary candidate TAKING AWAY hearts from opponents?
