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.
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.
