This morning, I was clicking around on this site to see if I could find anything to help a poster who was having trouble with his display. I was looking for the "Preferences" page which is accessed from the "Account" page.
And, at the very top of the "Account" page is this recap of my own account.
You've posted a total of 842 threads and 40,007 replies.
Now, I have been a member here for a while, but any way you slice it, that is a LOT of use.
I'll simply suggest that anyone who reads this, please check your usage. There is a FReepathon (fund raiser) going on. Every one of those 842 threads and 40,007 replies involved cost that has to be paid for.
I could do the math and post resulting fraction of a cent that I have given to cover that cost. It would be very, very tiny.
But, it would not be zero.
Please think about it. Thank you for reading.
Given my posting volume, I might need to increase my monthly.
I’ve been here awhile but I do more reading than posting. FR is always on one of my IE tabs.
You’ve posted a total of 5 threads and 517 replies.
Found this. I assume it is current,
The cost per view would be small but the largest subtotal amount of the total cost. People who just view need to help also.
Where else could you get this amount of info, enjoyment and discourse for the price? All while helping the conservative cause?
I agree there's something to be said for looking at your stats and pondering the concept of "fairness".
I want it to be clear that the Mrs was in no way solicited or coerced to support this thread.
She’s just smart, that way.
If I am correct, look at the URL at the top of your browser. This thread would be thread number 2,746,389. Wow!
There is no place. Consider the many attempts for "alternative" sites. They spring up, flourish for a bit. Then they crash and burn. More than once.
Don't ask me for details. I don't go there. But, I get reliable information from those who do keep up with such.
We need Free Republic. Free and clear.
It may be non-profit but it is not intended to be an entitlement program.
Now an even 9,000.
I donate using automatic credit-card payments monthly.
I wish it was easier to be reminded of my present level of contribution. I would up it by a couple of bucks a month, but I run the risk of inadvertantly reducing my contribution. Is there a way to find this information?
(Mrs. Tell handles the checkbook, so I seldom even have to look at a credit card bill.)
Good thread, good advice and posts were ‘sweet’. :)
Let's ask The Boss.
>>>(Mrs. Tell handles the checkbook, so I seldom even have to look at a credit card bill.)
Maybe you could just once? Or have Mrs.Tell tell you what it is?? Just a thought... well, two. :)
Great idea for a freepathon thread!

I do so love this place!
If memory serves me correctly, there was a server change around 2002/2003 that reset this number also so it may be far, far larger than that.
