What is the value of Free Republic?
Little House on Unaka | July 10, 2011 | don-o

Posted on 07/10/2011 9:01:04 AM PDT by don-o

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.

LOL.

I was accused of worse in the beginning. Sigh.

I started to take a look at my numbers, then wondered if I really wanted to know how many. :’)

“You’ve posted a total of 3,858 threads and 128,488 replies.”

Make that 128,489.

I plan to become a monthly donor during this ‘thon.

Same here--actually meant to do it before my 10-year anniversary. I guess time has been slipping by a little faster than I realized.

I have given $35/month for years.

If all regular users did that there wouldn’t ever be another Freepathon!

I don’t remember how to find out that information, but 892 threads and 14,382 replies is most impressive!

I joined on the day the The King passed away, as someone pointed out to me, in 2000. However, I started lurking in 1998 after I heard Rush speak about the Monica thing, Free Republic, and the Drudge Report.

I thought it would be a worthwhile effort to learn to use the internet so that I would be able to check out these sites.

And....here we are today. FR is still here, and I am a monthly donor, too.

Bump at you!

It’s good to “see” you!

See...not nearly as impressive as yours...but pretty good for someone who was learning how to use the internet, and didn’t know how to post a thread for a very long time.

“I don’t know if that would be much of a selling point for a lot of folks. ;-)”

Are you kidding?

You are a great guy, very funny at times, and a real Texan!

Plus, I love the way you love to argue.

It represents a staggering amount of personal time, over a period of, hmm, seven plus years.

Do you think it needs an indicator as to how many appreciated each post? ;-)

There used to be a notation of how many times a thread had been viewed as well as how many replied had been made. That went away after a crash, I think.

Speaking of which, I am not very versed in the technicalities of how a system actually works; but, I know enough to be very appreciative of the amount of work and diligence it must take to keep this site up and running as well as it does.

If I had given $10 per inch yesterday, I would have had to file a penny just a little and send the powder in to FR.

And on the inside it said: “Or participate?”
