Free Republic Sucks
Free Republic Sucks ^ | May 1, 2003 | By Edgar Hall, Political Editor

Posted on 05/01/2003 11:06:14 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Well, well, well. And yet another anti-Freeper site springs up:

http://www.freerepublicsucks.s5.com/crackdownmay2003.htm

We must be doing something right to have so many Bush haters hating us so much.

Well, we wish you luck. You'll have plenty of competition from FR haters.

The following is the Free Republic Sucks Forum:

Coming Soon!

FRS will be running in test mode for most of 2003. However, we do plan to move to a different URL at the end of the year and - if we can generate the interest - there will be a bear-pit forum where FReepers and FRSeepers can fight it out. For now, you can make use of the forums listed to the right.
The following are the forums "listed to the right":

But please do not question the current administration.

I notice you haven't been banned for doing so.

AMUSINGLY NAMED "FU" is a spin-off from a spin-off. It mainly consists of anti-government posters who left LP because they didn't like the new flock of "Bush-bots" who had come over from Free Republic.

Thus proving division by zero IS possible.

Where does all the money actually go

It's telling about the mindset of these idiots that they obsess over a quarter-million dollars of voluntarily-donated money.

During the Clinton Occupation, I was rather vocal about my mistrust, dislike, and overwhelming contempt for Billyjeff. But I dont recall ever going as far as these twits with the new website. It cant be political, its too rabid, even for them, its got to be hate.

I like to put it this way: For eight years I couldn't STAND the Clinton Administration. But never once did the fact that BJ was in the Oval Office keep me from getting a good night's sleep. But for these people, the fact that Bush is in the White House DOES keep them up at night. It infects every fiber of their being, every moment of their existence.

Likewise, so does the continued GROWING success of FR. They literally cannot handle it.

Most 'cockroaches' are more active at night.
And some are just bigger than others.


Free Republic is a pesticide to these cockroaches!
And Jim is "The Orkin Man" to these hate-mongers.

I have to say I am very disappointed in Mercuria. She still has an active account here, even though she has not posted anything for over a year, and she makes a point of going over to this Edgar Hall and attacking both you and this site. Here is a little newsflash, Mercuria, honey: There are people who come and register to this site for the sole purpose of posting something they know is a troll. They get angry responses, which is what they want. And you know what is funny about them? We can see them a mile away. I am sorry if you think the mods should not have a sense of humor, or that it is at least acceptable to post something that is blatantly anti-semitic as that alleged Buchanan satire was. If you are expecting some kind of an apology from Jim or any of the mods, you will most likely die from old age waiting.

Are you sure less debate is the best road to a free republic?

Let's put it this way, UBE - I was monitoring Maher's new show Real Time two nights ago. He had on two liberals and Ann Coulter.

It's impossible to conduct a debate with blithering idiots who've been taught by the government schools and the liberal media that facts are immaterial to a debate.

The three Leftists were talking about the Constitution, and it was quite clear that they had NO idea what they were talking about. And it didn't matter.

Well I tried reading the latest goofy anti-FR site in order to see if I got honorable mention as being an FR sycophant, but my desktop filled up with so many pop-up ads that I had to bail. If I'm mentioned there at all, somebody give me a ping. I just didn't have the patience to slog through those pop-ups.

Right.

So serial pest jjbrouwer, who's been booted off just about every forum on the Net, and who wrote a viciously anti-American, anti-2A piece for The Scotsman, is now infecting Liberty Post?

There couldn't be too many Constitutionalists left there.

Attention: Darth Sidious

Darth, you've fallen in with some bad hombres over there. Remember Robert Urich's character, in Lonesome Dove? I suggest you forget about the dead-end street called antifreeping and get back to FR. We could certainly do with your insightful input into Michael Moore, for starters. Cheers, By

"Are you sure less debate is the best road to a free republic?"


Debate is not the same as nutcases who want to disrupt. It's like hecklers at a debate. They are like psychotic children or people who just want to destroy. It is completely different from honest debate.

UBE's point stands, as some of FRs biggest 'disruptors' are the PC crowd who fear no mod.
They far to often 'heckle' honest debate to a flaming halt.

I was wondering the same thing, but was honestly afraid to ask. I've seen others get slammed for inquiring as to the whereabouts of FReepers, so decided to just keep quiet. I would assume it is only a suspension, and not a complete ban.

I have no idea what makes these serial abusers tick. They pile it on and pile it on. No matter how many times their posts are pulled or they're warned or suspended, they keep piling on the abuse. Then when the total weight of their accumulated abuses makes it impossible to continue allowing them to post, they run off to some anti-freeper site to whine like babies when they find their posting privileges finally permanently revoked. Life is so unfair. Serial abusers or professional victims? I see no difference.

Unless there's been a very recent change to the software (John? Has there?), those who are suspended are listed as such on their home pages, along with the date of their return. Illbay, on the other hand, has a "no such user." Which is, uhm, bad.
