No big vanity here, guys (nor, perish the thought, an "opus").
I just wanted to observe the fact that I've been on this forum for 10 years today, and to thank Jim Robinson for the opportunity to vent my spleen and express whatever humorous or (hopefully) thoughtful impulses happen to drift through my transom. And when they do, it is often at the instigation and inspiration of many of you here assembled. You folks have become like an extended family to me, and yes, I truly mean that.
Thank you all for your passion, your humor and your continuing commitment to help restore the kind of America I recall so fondly as a child and a young man.
I sincerely hope that in another ten year's time, we will have taken steps toward restoring the nation we all love, and I know instinctively that all of you will have helped participate in that effort.
Not a Bad place to hang out, is it?
I’ve learned a lot here over the years... a LOT of years!
I guess I must be an addict, too. But it feels so good... In any case, to help ensure that I can continue my habit, I’ve made a donation to help push Free Republic’s latest fund drive over the top..
Congratulations. I know that FR is my hometown. May 28th hit my 10. And I haven’t been the same since. Just love it here. The only sanity I can find at times.
Happy Anniversary, Noob.
Hmmmm, I just realized I passed mine.
LOOK AT MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
right way right
Since Oct 7, 2000

I have been here 10 years to the day as well. We joined the same day. Congratulations to us!
Happy 10th back at you. I think there’s nothing wrong with a little vanity now and again, as long as it’s done in good taste and with others also in mind.
I’ve been on 10 years this past October, but really longer, because I had another screen name, but it either got lost when I switched computers, or when the software here changed, but oh well.
This is THE BEST site on the entire interweb. Best.
Agreed, this is a wonderful place, lots of people from different backgrounds and stages in life.
I would that it could be a permanent fixture on the net, as it is a home away.
QUITE SO . . . in a list of ways.
Congrats from one of the Freeper class of 1998
I hang out for the humor usually.
Though I am told my coffee is an offense against nature.
I could live without oxygen easier than living without FR.
I could hold my breath.
Every month is a milestone to you noobs! ;O)
Made me Look...October 29, 2000. I lurked before the events of that time compelled me to join.
I agree wholeheartedly - this is the best site for a host of reasons. I’ve met some terrific people on line at FR, as well as in person here in the great state of New Hampshire. I’m adding a little “ping” for their benefit, because they are a large part of the reason I’ve chosen to hang out here for the past ten years.
No apologies needed for observing the 10 year point.
