IMHO, the writer listed the forums in the order he reads or uses them, not from the membership numbers. It sure looks like the left is taking over the internet, according to the article.

I like LGF for the decidedly offbeat sense of humour, and I love the beach shots. But what makes it a regular stop for me is the kaleidescope views of Mr. Johnson, who, above all in the cyber realm, has that casual “take it or leave it” attitude that you will never, ever see in any of the Leftie sites mentioned in this article. Good Gawd man, they are just so damn important, why can’t the world see that? *the world at large does not like scary*

Hot Air is just a baby, so exciting and revealing. Michelle Malkin has really come into her own, her poise and maturity have been increasingly evident on her guest subs for O’Reilly.

A hallmark of the Lefties is tunnel vision. Michelle is aligned with many of the ideas of people like Anne Coulter and Laura Ingraham, but has her own unique stamp. The moonbats put her through hell as they have done with Anne and Laura, but I am always bolstered by that woman’s cheerful smile. She’s an optimist, IMHO, and that is an anathema for the Commie Kids. So they stumble all around her like the drunken moose who eats too many fermented apples. Stupidity begets danger, sort of...the drunken moose videos always show them careening through a nursing home or insurance office. That is what you see at the Leftie sites on this list!

Free Republic: Over 200,000 registered users.

DU: 104,221 registered users. Plus this about DU: If the site suffers from anything serious it's bloat and an extremist membership.

I like the comment about Huffington Post:

"Beware of trolls -- bands of bloodthirsty conservative trolls prowl the halls of Huffington Post, looking for posts to blast with gems like, "The Democraps and Nancy Peloozer are cowards!""

‘It’s a bit hypocritical, I grant you, but site operators aren’t the only ones that do it. It happens in the “real” world, too.’

No doubt, but I noticed one ‘revelling’ in a one day blip after three years of dismissing it recently...and I still chuckle at the hypocrisy and evident desperation it underlined.

I think I know exactly who you're talking about. And that site operator has a few other problems as well.

We are the blue on that chart. The color is determined by the order the comparison criteria is typed in.

Is there a chance that DU has a larger page view number - simply because their site layout stinks?

We have a much higher page view number. Our ranking is a lower number than the DUmmies, on that ranking Yahoo is number one and MSN is number 2.

It’s ridiculous that DU is #2. I’m not saying that because of the content, simply the quality of the forum software. They don’t even have a search feature! Plus trying to figure out which post a reply is to drives one to drink.

Yea, I saw that also. Maybe it was because we would overwhelm the others on the list, then everyone would wonder why FR was only No. 9

Greetings P90X:

uhh am i seeing this right? DU gets 30000 hits beginning of March vs 8000 for FR.

That is the 30,000 websites away from first place in Internet traffic.

Cheers,

What type of criteria they used for to make these rankings. I though Free Republic has more daily hits than DUmmy Land?!

I didn’t realize just how outnumbered we are. Most are lefty.

impatient with strangers, particularly left-leaning ones, but very active community. The "Freepers" are notoriously aggressive in print. If you're not ultra-conservative and you're aching for a fight, you'll find one here. The site excels as a breaking news source as well. Just know that you'll catch hell from the locals if you aren't ultra-conservative or libertarian. You've been warned.

LOL! That's Free Republic alright. Let's keep it that way.

Indeed.

Just a little mathematical logic here: according to this, all the libertarians should be catching hell from the ultra-conservatives and vice versa. Ergo, everybody here should be catching hell from somebody.

Bartcop is still around? I’ll have to give him persistence. He challenged me a couple of times when I ran the Clinton Joke-of-the-Day Page, but I wasn’t in the mood for his games. He wanted something of mine that he could rip apart on his website. I declined.

IMO, finding Dirty Underpants, Fartcop and Daily POS ahead of FR voids any legitimacy this list might have had.

I see there’s far more left-leaning forums than right.

K thanks. I didn't know if it was unique hits or not. I went to site and saw that it was the ranking. Thanks for taking the time to respond, I really do appreciate the effort!

Evidently the ranking is NOT based on participation or membership.

What is never looked at are the countries of the poll voters.
I trust no poll since I discovered that most members at DU, CNN, ABC, CBS, etc..
are haters of America. And do not live in America.

Bah. Robots...

Note also the mention of the DUmp as being “huge”. If posts-per-thread statistics are any indication, FR is at least 10 times the size as the DUmp.

Here’s one for you, I found FreeRepublic from a link at “The Progressive” to the whitewater files in 1996. AT that time most politics on the Web was already Loony Left Liberal, and god did they hate Clinton.

You left out one of the best forums. It's rising and it's best asset is its low noise to signal ratio. This forum is about politics and not about pissing matches and drama between trolls. Check it out. :) Political Forum
