Is there any real-time chat place for FReepers-like Mirc or Yahoo or anything?
freerepublic2 is a yahoo group dedicated to FreeRepublic, but rarely do people gather there to chat.
We're not a chat, but an active forum:
Many familiar and like minded folk there.
Thanks for the info. It's a shame there's no dedicated live chat channel. I wonder why that is.
live threads & F5 is the closet thing I know of. as far as "live chat" though, I don't know of anything.

duh, I'm sorry.
Do you guys have yahoo or mirc?
Thanks for the link. I like the looks of it.
The old chat room was kind of fun wasn't it.
I had a different nic in the FR chat room, so you may not recognize me, but I was there.
okay... now I'm curious, what happened to it?

I have yahoo. haven't used Mirc in years. the biggest problem I could see with live chat would be keeping trolls & other disruptors at bay. I'd imagine it would be a mod's nightmare.
I usually don't chat online much, but when i do want to chat, I'm always looking for like-minded people. I like to separate the wheat from the chaff so to speak. And as for trolls, its always fun to watch them get torn apart by FReepers- or anyone with an IQ above 23.
It is still a contingency site when FR goes down I believe. Back then, before JR got the new servers FR would crash frequently. It was more like a bar room atmosphere, music and all sometimes if you had mic and speakers, nothing serious, just a meeting place where Freepers would go waiting for FR to get back on line.
Sounds like fun. Just what I was asking about. Throw some topless women in there and I'd never leave the house. Just kidding.
FreeDominion has also offered to be a contingincy site...and is a lot better than Yabbbooooo.
Thanks for the link, looks like a great forum.
Back 4-5 years ago there was a different attitude here, not like today. We have lost some very good people since then, some by passing on and other doing the opus thing or getting banned.Trolls were not a problem back then, we only had 2 or three maybe a month. The yahoo site was a gathering place to have fun, no rules, just right.
What's doing the opus thing? I've been a lurker for a long time, even went to the impeachment rally in DC on Halloween 1998, but still never heard of the opus thing or the chat room.
Upon re-reading my post, it sounds like I was being crappy, I hope that is not the way it came across because I did not mean it to sound that way.
When a Freeper writes his opus when they voluntarily leave as a poster on FR. Just type in opus in the search option as a key word and you will understand.
Oh. I guess I never saw one of thoses before. I did take a break from lurking for a while. And I have seen the cartoon character Opus here before but I guess i thought it was a joke. On my post 23 I should have used a question mark. WHen you can't hear inflections and tones like speaking, I think it's easy to not understand. It was not meant to be offensive but more of a question.
The chat room wouldn't even have to be all about politics 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Or at least not directly, it could be about movies or day to day stuff. That's what I was looking for when I asked.
what has happened to Free Dominion?
Still going strong-when FR is slow or down, I hang out here:
Guest Room for Freepers
nopardons, I'm having a senior moment-- I swear, the last time FR was down- some time ago- I found a link to live chat, but I'll be dogged if I can remember where or what it was... something like "freerepublic radio?"
All I remember is it allowed only a set number of people to log in at a time, so people kept coming & going to make room for others.
Nevermind- it's part of the Yahoo! group:
Possibly a question you can answer here? See post #9.
Please the the Profile Page of FReeper Neil E. Wright
One server is online now (24/7/365) and hopefully another will be online in the next couple of months.
And, while I'm here, let me introduce the VK Division to BooBoo, Silly's trainee and new sidekick.
I have MSN messenger. But a chat feature for the website itself would be awesome.
see the Post by Fiddlstix a couple of replies up at #32 .... :)
