Folks and Friends at Free Republic
I just wanted to inform you that one of the computers I have at home has COMPUTER ASSOCIATES' SECURITY CENTER installed on it as part of the package I have with my recent Internet and cable service provider -- CABLEVISION.
This is the CA SECURITY CENTER VERSION 18.104.22.168
Now, everytime I try to access FR on this computer, it blocks me with the following reason :
URL: http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/go-button For the following reason: based on the category Category: Hate
I have to override it by entering an administrative password to temporarily allow the FR site to go through my browser.
Out of curiosity, I tried going to the DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND site and lo and behold, the CA Parental Control software ALLOWED the site with no problems.
Just wanted you people to be aware of this double standard.
I’ll tell you what I told my mother after she paid $50 for a 1 year subscription to CA.
AVG is free.
These are ones that I found in seconds by search. This does not include any comments by posters. I don’t appreciate you attacking my character.
I'm not sure so called 'hate' sites are called hate based on curse words, but on their politically incorrect opposition to certain people and issues.
Allow it or not I have seen it on this site. I provided you with examples that were in ACTUAL titles of posts. Stop calling me a liar.
Never seen GD?
You could demand your money back and tell them why.
I have given you several examples of curse words used at FR. Are you ready to concede that you were wrong and that sometimes curse words are used at FR? I do not appreciate you implying that I am a liar and that I am a troll from the DU.
I have seen plenty of people on FR using foul language.
THAT is your claim, guess we could argue how many is plenty. I stand by my claim and I've been on FR a lot since 2004, I have never seen the 'F' word, the 'S' word, or 'GD' used on FR. By contrast I have seen them used liberally over on DU. On the whole outright profanity is not tolerated on FR, like I said on occasion, some other words that you might consider profanity may slip through, but that really is the exception, not the rule. This however is not a Christian site, it is a conservative site.
No I am not saving them. I told you that I did a search because you falsely accused me. My original comment was that curse words were used on FR and you said “Not true”.
I did not say that profanity is tolerated. I said that it is used. Unless reported the mods cannot read every post.
The original reference to what Jeremiah Wright is saying is acceptable because it is news. I consider the GD to the Dems a curse word. How about the b and a words used in the title of threads? Do you consider those curse words? Whether you have seen the f or s word used is of little importance to me. I have seen it and I don’t lie.
You can argue the point all you like but the fact is you said that it was UNTRUE that there were curse words used on FR and I proved you wrong.
Using the word when referring to hell is not a misuse of the word. Do a search on FR and you will find plenty of discussion of hell as a place. Misuse comes when you use it out of context. Ex. What the h***? It like calling a woman a b****. The word is not offensive until taken out of context or misused.
BTW I never said the site was a Christian site. I was just correcting an incorrect statement that there is no profanity of FR.
Where? Prove it. I’ve seen them insinuated by using puncuation marks as letters but never the real word.

That is not a curse word. UNless you can link to where someone has used what you say they have used and actually used the word then you are full of it!
LImnk to the actual post not the whole topic!
The curse words were used in the title of the threads.
I asked for the actual post not the whole topic I am not reading a whole topic because you say something is there.I want the post number.
If you bothered to read and understand my following posts I said there are occasional words that obviously you would expect to slip through, mods can't catch it all, that's what the abuse button is for, yet I have never seen the 'F' word, the 'S' word or GD word slip through in all this time, which would get no argument from me that there should be zero tolerance for those particular words on this site and obviously there is, however because your post seemed to imply that FR is a profanity-ridden site where you would see such words, therefore to be considered a hate site would be understandable, well I take exception to that, only someone from DU would try to make that claim in essence smearing FR, that's why I asked you. Or you could be just a relative of O'Reilly.
