Democratic Underground Suffers Election Grief Shutdown

The Democratic Underground went into the election last week absolutely confident in Hillary Clinton’s victory. As we shall see they were even openly gloating about her winning the presidency before the election even happened. And then the Trumpocalypse shockwave hit them hard. Very hard. In fact, they went into such a deep state of grief that their website shut down. Here is their laughable official excuse:election_meltdown

As most of you probably know, Democratic Underground was vandalized by a hacker on election day, forcing us to take the site offline. We have spent the last week performing a security review of our software.

At this time the DU discussion forums are back online for Star Members only. We are taking this precaution because we want to make sure that we are only receiving legitimate traffic while we continue to test our software and the new security measures that have been put in place. This limited opening period should only last two or three days before we open up the site to everybody.

A Star Member is a DUer who pays a fee. They are currently the only ones allowed to view the website or post:

If you would like to purchase a Star Membership, you must first get a new password and log in by following the instructions above. Then click here.

Right! Because when a website is hacked, the first thing you want to do is hand over to them your credit card information.

Although they seem to be in a financial bind due to being cut off from Clinton cash because of the election results (the wife of DU founder Skinner aka David Allen was a Clinton campaign treasurer), a nice gold nugget of comedy was served up just the day before the election. In fact in my dozen years of chronicling the foibles of the DUers at the DUmmie Funnies it could well be the funniest thing I have ever seen posted there. Despite their site being down supposedly due to be hacking and probably because in their grief they still can’t face the world, someone at the Conservative Cave was able to discreetly hop over their pay wall to bring us this full gloat posting from the day before the election:

With A Hillary Win Looking Forward To Rubbing It In. Putting As Much Salt On The Wound As Possible

I simply will not be a gracious winner. I want to see these bastards as miserable as possible. I am so pissed that they would put a complete homicidal maniac in the White House.

Being put through such a horrible campaign has to have consequences. God knows what kind of shit we would be drug through should they win this thing.

Yes. The idea of being a gracious winner is something that completely escaped him. Unfortunately for him, karmatic kickback hit DUer TheMastersNemesis hard. What makes it even harder for him is that his premature gloat post shall live on for all eternity as among the funniest of all DU postings. And where is he today? A safe space in a diving bell at the bottom of the Marianas Trench?
