⌛ Occupy Forum Regime Change

Posted 5 years ago on Sept. 24, 2013, 9:44 p.m. EST by jart (1186) from New York, NY

I want to announce that as of last night, DKAtoday (Dan) has chosen to step down from their responsibilities as moderator. In the meantime, shooz, grimwomyn, and I will do our best to fill in the gaps until things either settle down or we find a replacement.

I want to express my sincerest gratitude to Dan for all the hard work he's put into this community. There are very few people in the movement who've remained committed to helping out each and every day for the past two years, and Dan is one of them. He did these things asking for little in return because he cares about the Occupy Movement and wants it to succeed. And I believe his contributions have played an important part in helping this forum thrive—through good times and bad—and remain an active place for discussion two years after it formed.

Let us all take this as an opportunity to thank Dan and wish him the best on whatever he chooses to do next. I hope he'll choose to continue participating in this community, and I informed him yesterday that if he ever changes his mind, he'll be welcomed back as a moderator.

— Justine

DKA Today, Dan has been personable and encouraging to this group, and to me personally. Thanks for doing thankless work, Dan, for all this time.

I think Dan rocks and I don't give a damn what anybody says. So, thank you Dan.

DKA has been consistent and unfailing in his vision, enthusiasm, insight, wisdom, encouragement, and support.

One of the first people to befriend me when I first started posting. Please stick around, OWS needs you.... there are many who read on the sidelines and don't post.... while you may not be able to turn around the mindset of die hard, contrarian debaters who harass you...your posts do not go without impact..... others are reading and hearing your message.

Hey geo. Solidarity & fyi : http://truth-out.org/news/item/19046-status-of-the-resistance-movement-growing-deepening-succeeding and also : http://vimeo.com/68334467 Both very interesting indeed.

Thank you shadz... it's been a while...

With your scientific background & rather rational way of thinking, I hope that the ''Crisis Of Civilisation'' documentary film ('vimeo' link above) will appeal. Solidarity to you 'geo', hope you and yours are well & 'may the light of knowledge abide with you for ever' too :-) Please further consider :

Solidarity and thanks for all your efforts for The 99%. I myself am an infrequent poster these days but still try to look in and read and comment if and when I can. Hope that you can do the same and fyi - http://www.nationofchange.org/average-american-family-pays-6000-year-subsidies-big-business-1380118180 - Never Give Up On The 99%! Go Occupy! Solidarity to you DKAtoday.

[-] 6 points by beautifulworld (22837) 5 years ago

This forum is made up of a lot of passionate people who care about the 99%, hence some of the problems we've had, but none more passionate than DKA. Keep posting. Keep fighting and never give up, DKA!



[-] 5 points by shadz66 (19985) 5 years ago

Solidarity Dan and thanx for 'the tag team tweeting' and much else besides. Your posting for The 99% & on issues such a Climate Change and your dedication to this forum have been second to none. We both may have had some differences occasionally but that which unites us - truly abides. Good luck and best wishes with all your doings and I hope that you'll persevere here too as now it need not be such a chore.

it could take months to get the fecal culture out of the nose, if it takes hold, years!

[-] 3 points by shadz66 (19985) 5 years ago

So now WTF's getting your goat ?!

Got a Koch stuck in your throat ?!!

You're obtuse and abrasive -

Quite happy to be offensive

And reread now what I just wrote !!!


So read the above, hush your graceless, toilet mouth & stop looking for attention, there's a good chap.

Frauds and (OWS forum ted cruz) brown nosers feigning indignation to deflect their guilt, especially when they discourage democracy.

But usually just RepubliCons.

[-] 3 points by shadz66 (19985) 5 years ago

Don't confuse The 'Democrap Party' with ''democracy'' and IF it's proof you want, just follow the money !!!

Despite your incorrigibly abrasive, mendacious, objectionable and rude nature, I shall use your sorry ass responses to just keep laying down the info for The 99% and for the more intelligent and engaged, ergo :

The last article by the ever excellent Ellen Brown is really rather revolutionary in its own way. Read it !!

Thanks for all of your hard work. I hope this doesn't mean you are done with the site.

[-] 3 points by Catelonia (51) 5 years ago

Having new moderators is a great idea, and I will do my part to see that this forum is a welcoming place, even for people who do not share my beliefs

It's only by learning the art of persuasion will we be able to grow this movement.

Oh yes, DKA/Dan was the most best awesome broadminded brilliant comprehending liberal progressive wise smart with-it stable secure trident of political intellect thing to have ever happened to the OWS forum, and the forum is sooo lucky to have been blessed with his selfless and benevolent service and, without his visionary moderation, I think I speak for all when I say that maybe opossum or 'coon roadkill jerky ain't soooooo bad. Just hose the shit off first.

Luv ya you twerky ~banned me erroneously five times~ Bitch!!
