What's yer round up number. How long you been a freeper? (Old Time Freepers Wanted)

Posted on 06/10/2010 8:38:54 AM PDT by Scythian

Scythian - Since Dec 29, 1998

I've given my opus a few times but always came a crawlin' back. I figure if they go by "join date" we old timers will go first ...

So any active Freepers out there have joined dates more ancient than mine?

Remember ‘Clinton-Gore . . . Gone in 4’ ? Who could have figured where we’d be today?

LOL 283 post before Arator was even mentioned. The poster who never turned down a whacked out impossible conspiracy theory.

I signed on May 14, 1999 but lurked a lot earlier.

Would this have anything to do with registering for Obama’s Death Panel?

Ive noticed that a significant % of the 1998 signups are more “moderate” in their ideology and in some cases Rino supporters.

Whenever I see the post of a raging Rino I check the signup date and its usually either very new (that day) or 1998.

Intresting.

The 1998 crowd are simply more experienced. Most of us can make a quite valid argument to vote for a RINO ~

It's very simple, if you have a state or a district that's overwhelmingly Democrat (60% or more) your best bet on getting a place-holder so that you can control the legislative body is to run a Democrat as a Republican.

Else, you're just wasting your money and everybody's time ~ that could best be spent elsewhere.

You notice, of course, that this argument EXCLUDES the Fuzziscuzzis of this world. She wasn't even a good Democrat.

In short, Free Republic first attracted Republicans who like to win, and Conservatives. From 99 to about 01 we had a crowd who feared the UN was bringing in an army. From 02 to 06 we had a bunch who thought we should run a RINO at the head of the ticket (the Giuliani crowd, and although we all respect Mr. Giuliani, and consider him an asset to America, he's not Conservative enough for us to support ~ except maybe as Senator or Governor of New York.

His fans got purged.

The Mitbots have a similar problem with their boy ~ but they're not purged yet.

Jim turned on mandatory registration back on Dec 5, 1997 so that date is pretty common among the elderly.

Other than Jim Robinson (November 28th, 1997) - I've seen one that's one day older than you...

There may be others.

“I belonged long before that with another name. I’m sad that I changed it.”

.
Lots of us were here in ‘97 but didn’t realize how fragile our identities were. I lost mine when I tried to change my password after compuserve stole my cs ID and gave it to someone else with an earlier CS sign-up, and I couldn’t retrieve the message Jim sent to the CS email.

Now someone else is using my original FR handle, but with a much later sign-up date.

Lots of the summer ‘97 crowd bailed out when ‘banning fever’ struck some time in ‘99.

Back before there was a ‘here’ we were a cozy little group. It was like if you were on the thread late at night and you had to say ‘is anybody here besides me’.

I don’t believe we had individual threads back thing but we just posted on one big thread about whatever we wanted to say.

But even tho we all remember the major trolls of that day, I believe those have been surpassed by some of the trolls we have now.

Instead of bringing in an army, they just brought in a Kenyan to be president...

November 28 ‘97 was when the software was changed, so lots of freepers will show up for that date, even if they were here before that.

My date is 12/17/99 but I was here long before that day. I was following the hearings on Chinagate and went to Drudge who had a link to FR.com. I was following USA vs. Clinton Day ..... Molly, when did you and Miss Marple and someone else start that daily thread?, and finally had to jump in and register. I went to the March for Justice on Halloween in D.C. and got enough nerve to start speaking out against the clinton machine.

On a somewhat related note, I used to send the most obscure stories I’d get here in the late evening to libertarian radio talk show host Neal Boortz, before he was syndicated, when he was just in the Atlanta market (competing against Hannity who was also in the local market only, and winning, I should note). He never emailed me back an acknowledgment, but often those stories would end up getting posted at 7AM or so the next morning in his daily program notes, and be on the show that day.

Seems like I have been here forever. I had to re-register for some reason so my date is wrong. I was here crying when Clintoon was reelected....I would appreciate if the Administrative Mods could fix my date. I can verify all the information on the previous Pushintin, It should all should be he same.
