Free Republic
Snuph | 10/30/2012 | Snuph

Posted on 10/30/2012 11:49:48 AM PDT by Snuph

Has there been some change to Free Republic that I am not aware? Is everyone subject to these new rules?

All of my post are now "subject to review." Is this a new feature for all posts or just mine?

I notice I am not allowed to send mail. The message is my account is too "new" for this feature.

I have been a member since August 29, 2010. I have posted 514 articles. I have made 390 comments. I have used the private mail since the day I started here.

So. The question is: Is this new to everyone or am I under some kind of double secret probation? If so, can you at least tell me why?

I understand in the beginning you might be ‘subject to review’ or if your account appears to be a dup or someone told me (never verified) if people complain about your posts.
Otherwise, why not just send a private FRmail and ask the mods.

That’s happened to me before, when I created another screen name. From what I know, it can happen if you come under some type of troll flavored suspicion.

Maybe posting more articles than comments get you on the suspicious list?

Did you post something that was pulled? Maybe you are on a Free Republic “watch list”?

*shrug*

asking snuph to freepmail the admin when freepmail is not possible for the snuph account, really is an oxymoron

Read through a bunch of your stuff and you didn't say S..., F...., T..., P....., or, horror of horrors, Y..... ~ so it's not the speech code.

Most likely this started when you started posting references to your own articles elsewhere ~ easily overcome for the purests by simply POSTING those articles here so we don't need to refer to your site to get to read the stuff you want us to read.

Frankly, I'm not a purest on that issue so you'll never hear about it from me, but there are SOME who think it is very important that Blogs don't get advertising niblet points through referrals from FR.

Humor them and you'll get along fine.

Oh, yeah, the other one ~ kind of a speech code thing ~ but when you have a certain type of administrator on he's lax on inter Freeper name-calling ~ and he gets testy with those who complain about his double-standard and in fact violation of Freeper rules.

So, yes, to your question ~ are you on Double Secret Probation ~ those messages and processes were put into play without much fanfare but there they are.

You misunderstood. The “subject to review” is a homework assignmment. Please report back when you review your assigned subject (10 page report double-spaced). Thanks.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes, he’s on DSP. I should know. Been there - Done that.

I notice Snuph posts a lot of vanities? Has one been pulled lately? Have you had comments removed?

You have essentially been put on “time-out”.

Believe it or not - sweet little innocent harmless me has had “replies under review” imposed by them ignorant brain dead mods.

(Humor here mods - dont time-out me again)

In a couple of days... All will be forfiven. You will post normally again.

Untill you screw up again.

It happened to me once when I posted an article about Larry Sinclair. Apparently it offended someone. Just be a good boy and they will eventally take your name off the naughty list.

The one thing that cracks me up more than a thread such as this one (that one sees every couple months), is the tears that flow in the comments afterward.

Keep wondering when I’ll be not-too-new enough to get off probation. Annoying. Was a FReeper a loooong time ago (many years) but dropped of due to life busy-ness. Had to make a new account since I couldn’t remember my old handle or password, and had a new email account, etc. I don’t remember it taking this long to get un-probationed last time. As far as I know, I haven’t posted anything at all even remotely close to wrong so far. It’s frustrating because topics fall off the front page much faster than the admins get around to reviewing and posting my posts, so I feel as though my contributions are worthless by the time they see the light of day. But I keep posting anyway just in case, and because I’m afraid that if I don’t post enough useless posts just because, then I’ll *never* get off probation. *sigh*

I’m thinking you better be FReepmailing the mod or Jim. I’ve never been on probation, even when I was new so you should find out what’s up.

Your posts are being reviewed because you have pages of pulled articles. You post from sites that are not welcome at FR and you do that by omitting the links. You post from authors who are not welcome on FR.

You seem to think that quantity and not quality is what counts here. You’re wrong.

If it’s a bandwidth-limiting move, it’s a big FAIL, judging by the number of replies in a short period. :-)

Well, is the complainer making ‘pickup’ snide remarks on another website, about Freerepublic, like at TBL? Seems to be a trend with disgruntled FR posters who join over there.
