Guys, you want a forum right. Most agree the forum should be opened again. But, you barely use it! There's only a post a day. a comment every 10 hours. What happened? You guys stopped caring or what?



Read the Rules

People are involved in the U.S. political process. If you don't know why this juncture of politics is significant, you may not have been a keen observer of the U.S.

One establishment candidate, Jeb Bush, has bowed out. I also liked Chris Christie to be able to return to New Jersey to govern it better. New Jersey needs his cleaning up.

Paradoxically - I will break my recommended rule of thumb right now in order to recommend my rule of thumb to NEVER bump this idiot's forum-posts declaring faux concerns for the well being of this forum!

verum ex absurdo ...

Seems crazy to me that you wouldn't want to bump posts about the lack of activity on this site, or the fact that the site is shut down. Seems to me these are the biggest problems facing the online version of Occupy these days. how can we achieve anything with 6 users that post very seldomly?

I guess as a conspiracy theorist you're still stuck trying to figure out 9/11 and chemtrails.

Not sure what this is about. So what if they are involved in the political process, they could still come here and talk about it. .We need more users, and more active users. No?

They have come here and talked about the recent caususes/primaries in Nevada, South Carolina, and upcoming ones in Nevada, Florida and those on Super Tuesday (March 1st). Twitter is where the fast action of campaigning was. This forum is better suited for exchanging and hashing out of ideas than rapidly mobilizing people to vote.

Observe Donald J. Trump, certainly a media circus savvy dude. He is on Twitter.

This forum can use more users and active users so I am with you on that but actively politicking for Bernie Sanders must have precedence over discussions here.

Well, I'm not for group think. I think the ideology must take precedence over anything else. There are people who might support occupy, but not necessarily support Bernie Sanders. This is an occupy site after all, not a Bernie Sanders platform.

I am not an ideologue so to the extent that Bernie Sanders' ideas overlap OWS's, we can "support" him. I suspect that the effort may ultimately be proven futile due to the rigged process and the manufactured consent. It's still a valuable exercise to align the cadres. I don't invest much emotionally in his candidacy because he may well fold into Mx. Cheese's Dionysian rites at midnight in the "haunted" Lincoln bedroom.

I am. I have been since I got back here. I find the lack of activity on this forum horrible. We must energize this place. Re-activate it. DKAtoday and shooz drove almost all users away.
