Skip to comments.Conservative Examiner banned from 'Free Republic'

Why would a conservative activists site ban a conservative activist?
This question remains largely unanswered. Conservative Examiner has been summarily banned by Free Republic.
For over a year I have been posting Conservative Examiner articles at the Free Republic conservative networking forum. From the very start I found the site to be admirable due to their clear goals of conservative activism--to advocate for the conservative cause and to work toward reclaiming our government, through the electoral process, from those who appear to have little regard for the Constitution.

I enjoyed his imperious tone. I'll miss it.
Ok, I'm over it now.
“Thus, if I did not comment I got blasted. If I defended myself against senseless attacks I got blasted. There was no way to win. I had even made a contribution to the site, but apparently some persons are more important than others. It appeared to me that I was the low man on the totem pole.”
Come on! Man up.
Why post something from your blog when you could post the story from the real publication directly? Except for getting traffic your way. I don’t like that.
Sufferin' cats! All his talk of reporting others, threats, tag-teams, and vendettas is pretty telling. I won't say what it tells. I'll leave that for him to decide.
You're not pushing 10 years, you've been here over 10 years. Happy anniversary!!!
Check out ScottFactor. Since joining 4/11/10 he’s posted a total of 4 threads that weren’t links to his own blog ~ and he posts a link every day since joining, sometimes multiply times! Now maybe ScottFactor isn’t annoying and a whiner like the subject of this thread, but I still refuse to give ScottFactor a hit to his site. He could post what he has to say at his blog site in toto here if he feels it is that important to share with Free Republic, IMHO.
I can’t find my pic of the Whaaambulance and have to get to work....
The Conservative Examiner gets paid for the amount of views his articles get and yet complains when his articles are linked to this site and threatens to bring lawsuits against those that do.
Sorry, should have done a courtesy ping on that post. :~(
Examiner shouldn’t be called a paper. It’s a pay per click blogging site.
I love the smell of ozone in the morning.
My guess is there are many lurkers (with humorous/thoughtful commentary) who wish to join in on the conversations at Free Republic, but hold back because they don’t want to be “flamed,” zotted, etc. I wish the moderators controlled the content of comments a little more (I’ve been told to “F” off more than once), because respectful commentary from a broad range is interesting to read.
Haha. Freudian typo?
I've never heard of this guy or his "controversy" ... but I did find the use of the word "threat" instead of "thread" in a column where he denies being threatening very amusing.
I’m a *girl* and you wouldn’t catch me sobbing into my apron over the alleged “rough trade” dealt me by FReepers.
They just don’t build men like they used to.
Everybody likes Gunner. He’s always so sweet and polite, what’s not to like?
It’s a rough old world.
