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.

Further, Conservative Examiner isn't "banned". Just the one poster, Welshman007.
Here’s the thread in question:
Another whining zottee.
poor wittle baby
One of the worst spammers I’ve seen. For someone who writes for the “Conservative” Examiner, he sure doesn’t respect private property.
Admin Mod note: Poster was zotted for threatening Freepers with lawsuits.
So why bother complaining if the problem has been resolved? At the risk of hurting someone's feelings, this guy sounds really thin skinned.
“Further, Conservative Examiner isn’t “banned”. Just the one poster, Welshman007.”
Wud he do?
So let me get this straight:
This pathetic, whiny loser pimps his blog (and yes, most of examiner.com content is just blog content) on Free Republic. When someone posts his article on FR, he starts screaming lawsuit. He gets zotted, and then blogs about how strange it is that Free Republic “bans” the “conservative” Examiner.com, as if it were the whole site that was banned.
Incidentally, the Examiner.com site is NOT conservative. There are truthers, socialists, global-warming alarmists, etc. on that site. It’s just not exclusively liberal, like most papers.
That guy had one of the worst “do you know who the hell I am” attitudes I’ve ever seen on FR, and I’ve been here pushing 10 years now. The only person around here who’s allowed to pull that shtick is Jim Thompson.
You just don’t walk into a community, online or otherwise, and start immediately expecting the community to conform to your norms instead of the ones they’ve established over a decade or more. He did, and the results were predictable.
Although, between Welshman007 and Danny H, it’s been a very interesting week in the FR noob troll department.
Oh noes! He has exposed us nationally! Teh horror!
I am certain you will greatly miss his whining and threatening, humble. He seemed to like you alot! /s
What passes for logic in the minds of blogpimps is beyond my understanding.
Maybe he has performance issues
This ought to be part of the user agreement.
Reading his article about his “treatment” by Free Republic and FReepers, he sounds like a egotistical whiner who didn’t belong on FR anyway. There’s another current FReeper who consistently posts only links to their own blog. I refuse to give a hit. If you have something to say, say it in a related thread or post your own thoughts as a vanity, not a blog pimp.
Using FR .. as free advertising.. to drive traffic to his site. What a pimp. If he only wanted to share ideas, he would post his entire articles here (being “one of us”) with links as reference only. Now he’s whining that he’s been kicked out.
Reading it now. “Thus you will be reported” is a hoot.
ONOZ! Now the 6 people that read examiner.com won’t like us!
And mouthy, too.
