Why Is Free Republic Allowing Liberal Trolls To Stay?
May 12 2009 | jveritas

Posted on 05/12/2009 12:07:37 PM PDT by jveritas

There are some really annoying liberal trolls on Free Republic who have survived for months and years without being banned. Why is Free Republic allowing them to stay? We have enough liberalism and left wing lunacy on 90% of the media and we do not need this crap on this forum.

It is not difficult to spot these trolls. A quick review of their posting history will prove without any shadow of doubt that they are liberal trolls. Some of them try to mask it but they cannot fool the vast majority of us.

There are plenty of left wing forums which will welcome them that if they are not already registered and active members there.

It is time to get rid of them.

Hit the abuse bottom on them and hit it often.

Just for the fun of it, I was thinking of hitting the abuse button for your post...

On a much grander scale, I’m feeling the exact same way about being fed up with liberals, socialists, fascists and tyrants.

It’s time to separate and start over.

What a waste of bandwidth. You should ask for your post to be deleted.

"Hit the abuse bottom on them and hit it often."

If you hit them on their bottoms it only encourages them.

Gotta name names. I've been accused of being a liberal because I'm not sufficiently upset about Family Guy.

Some of them are just too entertaining to chase away. I’ll cite MurryMom as one example.

Did you report them?

Do the mods consider them ‘live chow’?

Is their liberalness in the eye of the beholder, based on one issue you may disagree with?

I was once told I had taken a position against the Lord Jesus Christ because I expressed doubt about the accusations against Kobe Bryant in his rape case.

I got you beat. I was not only accused of being a liberal, I was accused of having "French ancestry" because I prefer to drive fuel efficient compact cars as opposed to large gas guzzlers.

jveritas to many on FR if you dissent from them in ANY way you are a troll or a RINO.

I myself have often been very critical of several prominent conservatives (usually based on their overblown egos). That however doesn’t mean that if I criticize say, Alan Keyes, that I’m a supporter of our socialist president.

God sake man if we don’t have any dissent the site would get pretty dull pretty fast.

There may be a tiny little bit of a troll in some of us. Once I dared offer support for the now Secretary of State, before she attained that position. I said she at least had cared for and guided her daughter. I also said the daughter was attractive in her own way.

Bit of troll moment, I suppose. I do politely disagree with your ire about trolls. I notice the gad flies on the birth issue. I just wait until the real truth comes out and the gad flies will be swatted.

Cordially.

Why Is Free Republic Allowing Liberal Trolls To Stay?

Would it not be "liberal-like" or fascist or communist to try to shut down the opposition.

Yeah, Ok, they may not belong here, but, wouldn't most threads end up with half or less of the volume of posts if only conservatives were allowed to post?

At least one you listed says “this account has been banned or suspended” when looking them up. I bet the others are just kept around as toys.

Liberals are not allowed on this forum and neither are their stupid lunatic opinions. It is the policy of Free Republic.

We banned gracesdad almost a month ago. Do you want us to un-ban him and then re-ban him to make you happy?

To be frank with ya, if everyone was zotted whom another thought was a ‘liberal troll’, there would be no one left, especially you or I. I lost count how many times I’ve been called one, even for silly things like.. gasp.. believing in Evolution (Theistic Evolution at that.. double damned). I remember you had some fights with a few several months ago as well..

Abusing the abuse button is one sure way to get yourself banned jvert. I’m not thrilled with some people on here either(the marijuana prohibitionists come to mind), but I’m not going to get worked up over them and demand they be banned. Perhaps if you donate a truck load of money to FR you might be able to exert some pull with Jim R.
