This should be interesting from those that are on the moderate side of the political spectrum.

Some Freepers who join can't handle how gay the forum is and get banned because they can't modify their habits.

I'll make it simple. Nobody would be happy.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

BRTD would appreciated that more DU members joined this forum.

Not happy at all about the prospect.  I stay here because I like how relatively civil political discourse is on this forum.  I strongly doubt we would be helped by having either the undesirables of the left or the right contaminating this forum with the vitriol I see too much of in real life.

I'd leave. I hate DU, and the Free Republic with an undying passion.


I dislike Daily Kos, but at least I don't feel like I'm sinning whenever I cross their website.

I'd leave.  Never heard of Free Republic.  I used to not mind DK (they do have a lot of polling sponsorships) until I caught the founder in some blatant lies on Twitter with regards to voter turnout.

I haven't been on DU much other than if I'm Googling something, but they can be pretty hackish.

Free Republic is one of the few big sites more primitive graphically than Atlas is.  (Of course, the ultimate in graphically-primitive sites is Drudge)

Of course, weirdly enough, graphically-primitive is in again due to the proliferation of mobile devices, so old is new again.

We would have to triple the number of mods, or the existing crew would need to go full time. Tongue
