Skip to comments.WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL FREEPER ARTICAL/POST?
Posted on 05/13/2012 5:13:37 PM PDT by mamelukesabre
I can't figure it out. I was just looking at my previous articles and looking at the number of comments for each. There seems to be no rhyme or reason. The things I thought were amazing garnered pathetic comments quantities. The things I considered to be frivolous garnered popularity.
Click my name and look at my articles and subsequent comment numbers and tell me I'm wrong. If I'm wrong make me understand. Please.
Nope. Not answering that question. Nope, not gonna do it.
Items of long term interest usually have to do with archaeology or history. They move slow, but surely.
That's really a feature. And quite popular back in the 70's (I'm told.) Not so fashionable among the ladies these daze.
Taking your advice. ;-))
Oh. My. Gosh.
This is turning into a thread by itself. I love those estonian girls and I want the one with the carnivore in her pants.
The AdminMods, JimRob, and of course Lazmataz.
The first 2 are easy, just make it current and no attacks.
Laz is another story, he will chew you up and decimate you on a whim if he fancy's it...
Then watch out, if he draws his "HellGlock"
If you accidentally post something that someone already posted you will get 20 + posts calling you everything but a conservative.
I have had SO many software developers tell me that exact thing. Sure, it seg faults and crashes the hard disk, but it's supposed to do that.
I don't see a live critter with needle sharp teeth (I used to own ferrets) in a pretty girl's pants as a feature.
Hell, man, it's not even a bug.
It's the start of a long night of nightmares.
I remember the 70s. I got married the first time in the '70s. No girl I dated had a ferret in her pants, letmetellyou.
The only conclusion I can draw is that a silver fox is going after her cat.
I did laugh until I had to wipe tears away.
What's not to like about it? Estonia, girls with furry carnivores in their pants, a great sweater picture?
We haven't even touched on the Soviet era Estonian jokes. Those are hilarious, if you like industrial non-funny humor.
To each his own.
And to find the perfect “not stupid dog”.
God help me if I ever sink to the level of posting flaky vanities just to get some attention...or *any* attention.
Pudding seems to draw a lot of responses. That always brings up the “Chocolate or Vanilla” debate. You get a few for lemon pudding, but those are mostly Ron Paul supporters.
But if this particular boob has no cleavage, it’s a non-starter.
An Estonian girl is driving to her summer home for the season and spies a dead ferret on the road.
This ferret might be of some use, she thinks and puts the dead ferret into her front pocket.
In the fall the Estonian girl is driving back from her summer home and she stops at the very same place, takes the dead ferret out of her pocket and lays it on the road.
Ahh, I didnt need it after all, she says to herself.
Oh no, you silly dog ladies can go lick yourselves.
Bump (for no reason whatsoever)
You can’t determine anything about the quantity of readers by the number of posts in response. Doesn’t mean a thing really.
People read, but don’t necessarily find a need to respond. They just absorb the information, and go on.
NOT to worry. YOU don’t have Cooties. (I assume)
There are so many not funny Soviet era jokes.
It "was' a farmer and a raven.
But how is that relevant to this thread?
But you can determine a lot from the quality of the posters that do respond.
Take this thread for instance. The only ones that responded are the low-rent, ne'r-do-wells that people say brings down the quality of Free Republic.
Like me, for example.
Old joke about a guy that goes to prison for the first time:
After lights out, someone yells “37”! Everybody cracks up.
Others are yelling numbers and everyone was rollicking.
The next morning he asks his cellmate “What happened last night after lights out?”
His cellmate says: “We only have one joke book in the whole barracks. So, we each memorize the jokes and their respective numbers. Instead of telling the whole joke, we just call out its number!”
So, the newby finally gets the book and memorizes it. He’s ready!
After lights out it starts again. He decides it’s time for him!
He yells out his favorite “48”!! No body laughs. The barracks are still and dark........ Then someone yells another number and everyone is laughing uproariously!
So, the next morning he is really down, and asks “What happened last night?”
His cellmate says...............
“You just didn’t know how to tell it!”
I’m not saying that’s your problem. Just thought you might enjoy the joke. Hope all goes well. Me. I just lurk.
How is anything relevant to this thread? We're butchering Soviet era Estonian jokes. We've had everything but a dead parrot Monty Python sketch.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
I feel fine.
Classy comeback, Auntie Mame.
I can’t imagine *why* you can’t get a real life woman...or smart dog.
you funny long time ;-)
One of the oldest jokes I know, except it ends with a “Shhh, not in front of the ladies!”
I had an idea to number the lame cliche responses on FR, such as “put away that pipe”, or “forgot to take your medicine?”, etc.
You just can’t go wrong with an Ed Wood snark.
As I understand it, if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ‘em both!
What? This thread was teetering on the edge from the git-go.
Soooo...if we can can give it a push and it disappears forever down a foxhole, couldn't it be said that the people who responded were really TRYING TO IMPROVE the quality of Free Republic?????
Kinda like an Artical of Faith...
I’m celibate, too! Just ask my wife!
Did you really have to go and remind him of that annoying habit? I was hoping he'd finally broken it.
Sounds kinky. You first!
Keep on imagining and maybe I’ll go to the trouble of training you some day. If you appear worthy of the effort.
Worked for me!
Snark of the Day©
you kids play nice, i'm goin' to bed after the laughter spasms ease up some . . .
I consider it a mission of mercy.
For a few brief shining moments, a very sad, lonely and weird little man will feel an emotion akin to “happy”...or some other [possibly icky] feeling that passes for “happy”.
It’s the least I can do.
[the -very- least]
“Kinda like an Artical of Faith...”
............Does the third one from the left have a ferret climbing into her pocket?...............
Nah! I think that she’s got a “tiger in her tank”.......
In your dreams.
HOW LUCKY CAN YOU GET, Sal????
I've always dreamed of being able to lick....
Able Baker Charlie to Roger Fox Dog...
Mr. Data: “AH Humor!”
Enjoyed the responses. Thanks.
Yer goin’ out tomkattin’, really, aren’t ya?
I’ve no need to do learn to do that, myself.
That’s why God made men.
[*sniff sniff*...do you smell ozone?]
I take you guys haven’t witnessed the recent ‘female fad’ of walking around with a fox/wolf/coyote tail hanging off your butt?
I’m not sure what it’s supposed to represent but a *lot* of females in this area are partaking of the trend.
[personally, I’m more suited to a “devil tail” but can’t find one that’s realistic enough]
Whew, thanks! Thought I’d killed this thread.
Are you sure?
