Relevant content - All content and comments should be relevant to the 2018 midterms. Any discussion of other parties, races and candidates must be done in the context of how it affects the Democratic candidate or party. Constructive debate is encouraged within the Democratic Party; however, any criticism of the Party or elected officials must be respectful and substantive. No re-litigating the 2016 primaries or any other past election. Constructive discussion of past elections is encouraged; opening old wounds and being needlessly inflammatory is not. Counterproductive name-calling, smearing, or angry ranting is also a bannable offense.
