I agree with the ghosts of DU2. DU3 is one ugly website.

They finally zapped Lorien's comment with a link back to here -- 7 something hours later ... Smiley1146

"But when we crave power over life-endless wealth, unassailable safety, immortality-then desire becomes greed. And if knowledge allies itself to that greed, then comes evil. Then the balance of the world is swayed, until ruin weighs heavy in the scale." Ursula K. LeGuin, The Farthest Shore

Left Underground has the Facebook "Like" buttons which I would prefer to avoid.

Too bad, because there are some names I recognize.

She means they're selling your personal info to whoever wants to pay for it. DU3, like that epic fail Vista, is kind of a giant piece of spyware.

I don't think I have any personal info up on DU. I suppose if I was to donate or subscribe or whatever, they would though, huh? Otherwise, I would think one could be registered with no personal info.

They have an e-mail address for you, right?
I take "selling your info" to mean even something as mundane as a working e-mail linked to a leftist or "liberal" -- someone who might be receptive to buying or subscribing to certain kind of things -- but that is just a guess -- maybe somebody knows more.

No, it's still up - I just looked at General Discussion:
