Skip to comments.Buh-Bye! (Not really an opus - too short) [possibly the lamest opus in the history of FR]
Posted on 04/13/2012 6:38:33 PM PDT by PhilosopherStone1000
Ah, yet another "opus" from a disgruntled FReeper. I have been on FR off and on since 2001 (not a founder, I admit) under four different user-names, largely because there are Moderator's here who have more zeal than sense (and no sense of what the '/sarc' tag means).
I got busted for saying in January 2008 what JimRob said yesterday - "no RINO's, no WAY". Back then, I got zotted for saying that I'd frankly prefer a Dumb0 election to a McCain one since Dumb0 would finally wake Americans up to what the left REALLY wants: chaos, race-riots and totalitarianism, while McCain would slowly, somnambulantly, lead us down that same path like frogs in a slowly warming pan waiting to boil to death.
It turns out, I was right. 70% of Americans now understand that Dumb0 is a threat to our freedoms. Gun and ammo sales are through the roof. Dumb0's race riot/gender wars/submission to foreign powers narrative is now clear for all to see - and most Americans reject it.
What is also clear to see is that LSM members are nothing more than paid operatives of the progressive movement in America. Readership of newspapers, ratings of LSM news channels, is at an all-time low.
Today, I got a thread pulled for making what I thought was a perfectly valid point:
Dumb0 says (in the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmeron case) that quote:"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon" unquote. My follow up to that was: Oh, so Dumb0 believes that "all blacks look alike?" If a white guy had said that basically "all blacks look alike", he'd be pilloried in the media. Yet Dumb0 gets away with it.
Seemingly minor point, but it didn't make it past the "crossing guard for the day" Sidebar Moderator (and it was in "Bloggers/Personal" - I wasn't even shooting for the serious rubrics).
I can handle arrogance and I can handle ignorance. If you really know what you're talking about you can treat me like dirt as I try to learn from you. If you're ignorant and want to learn, I'll take my time to try to teach you.
But I can't handle both: people who are both arrogant and ignorant (including the majority of lefties -and, unfortunately, some FR moderators) earn nothing but my scorn.
I'll undoubtedly stop back again to read the posts and comments here (which are, for the most part, awesome). But I'm about to get my login yanked so won't bother ever posting again.
Thanks to JimRob and all those FReepers who have been good internet friends over the years.
Keep your powder dry: If conservatives run a third party candidate, say hello to another four years of Dumb0, and the end of the American dream.
Good night fellow FReepers, and good luck.
Do you know Keith Stone?
Sly’s brother from another mother.
Oh, quit whining you sound like a democrat. The mods do an awesome job.
Paging some kitties.
hmmm....doesn’t sound like thread-pulling offense on its own.
Yeah, so does the DHS until it's your guns they come after.
What's it like to be a "lickspittle"? I've always wondered what that might feel like...
No, I don’t watch the Disney Channel...
Hey, I’ve been on the wrong side of the mods too (even got a short term suspension or two), but for the most part they do a great job in a difficult situation. Herding cats isn’t easy.
And admitting you are a re-tread is a major fail on your part.
ban me to asshole!
It was in a Romney thread.
I got a 24 hour time out once too.
But I hear the point that FR is not what it once was. I miss it.
See ya in the morning!
I got a lot of 3 days suspensions
Think of all the time you’ll have on your hands.
You deserved every one of em too!!!
I however did not deserve my suspensions, no way no how.
I can't imagine why! lol
In what way? Mods come and go. Sometimes you have to wait awhile, but FR is still one of the better places to hang with conservatives.
Just wish they had some sort of training camp for mods.
Typical Mod behavior - change the title of my thread without my having any recourse.
You (true) conservatives DO understand that “Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely”, right?
No better instance of that than the change of thread titles. Give a mod a little power and it immediately goes to his head.
So your stink don’t poop?
Arrogant ignorance. I see a lot of that on liberal sites. I see some here. But not as much. This is only my second id since I first set up an ID here in November of 1998. I feel your pain. things have gotten interesting the last few years in the banning category.
lol, my dog thinks I’m perfect
You do realize they probably did it just to piss you off, right? Mods do snarky well also.
I got a Warning Zot across the bow once.
That’s true. To be fair, I left Free Republic for a pretty long time. Didn’t make a big deal about it, and had the same login when I came back.
Nah. We learned that in the training camp you mentioned.
I will also concur with that opinion. Been here since '98...and have seen the change over time. It's been sad to observe.
Yeah. I was permabanned with no warning. A member since 1998 and there was no excuse for the banning. None. What I did was tick off a poster that turned out to be a mod - at the wrong time.
I’m with you though. I play fast and loose with it. If I get banned again, I may or may not re-join. Needless to say, I’m gun shy about donating now, unless they offer some sort of money back guarantee.
Possible. But then what attracts 200k+ views a day here is the fact that we are (now you are) the fastest news source in the world.
We get news here before the MSM (just watch any time an earthquake hits anywhere in the world - there’s a FReeper on it in less than a minute). Also the posts. That’s what makes FR run (and what earns JimRob a cool $320k a year). Maybe the mods need some sensitivity training (LOL! /JK)
So you changed the title just because it’s Friday night and you’re drunk?
Or do you have a better reason?
Maybe you should leave the ‘stone twisting in the wind for awhile. lame insults dude.
well when you read this one, piss off...
Took all of that to say what you could have said in one sentence...
I’m leaving because I am not smart enough to say things in a way that don’t offend 80% of the people here and am tired of getting banned becuase of others...
Possibly the most misspelled word on FR is “lose.” I find it interesting that you post a photo of a record in which the word is spelled correctly (”lose”) and you post “What have I got to loose.”
“Loose,” folks means “not tight.” It is not even close to the meaning of “lose.” And they do not sound the same, either.
It turns out, I was right. 70% of Americans now understand that Dumb0 is a threat to our freedoms.
and about 30% of those are supporting that threat
“Herding cats isnt easy.”
To my knowledge I have never been suspended, but only yesterday I ran afoul of the head boss by saying that a vote for any RINO would be better then allowing Obumbo four more years to totally destroy America.
When the forum starts getting stirred up with infighting, it just shows that life in America is getting tough all over, and putting everyone on edge.
As for myself, being offshore somewhat cushions the pain
of a failing America, but I stick with all who move to
prevent a full Communist takeover of the country, even if it means suffering under a RINO.
You guys need to start holding your aces and keeping your powder dry for November.
As much as I dislike Romney, it is becoming obvious that he will be the nominee to run against the Communist.
What will you fellow FReepers do?
Will you fight with whatever we have, or will you concede
defeat to Obumbo and his merry gang of Marxist thugs?
Yes, I also know that the congress is more important then ever in the next election.
Oh the places he’ll go and the things he’ll see, while trying to find a better place.
3 day suspensions = BRD
I got a mod tongue-lashing for posting the lyrics to the old cowboy ditty: `Tie My Pecker To A Tree.’
You post, you fall down, you get up—repeat. Remain clam.
I catch myself typing away, do the usual spell check and notice my error a millisecond after I hit the Post button.
If I'm in a caring mood, I type a followup Post with a correction.
If not, I just wait for someone to point out the obvious.
I was told to stand in the corner once. I figured the Mod really couldn’t see me, though, so I cheated and kept turning around from the corner to look.....
