I posted "RED ALERT: Emergency in Alaska" - Already there are rumors of “found” ballots. Murkowski is refusing to go away quietly, even allowing her campaign to float the idea of a third party bid or write-in candidacy.

Then I cane back to my post and it was pulled - here is the exact text:

This thread has been pulled.

It means it has been posted multiple times already and you could have discovered that by searching.

I would guess it was a duplicate thread and somebody failed to search before posting.

This is rocket surgery, don't try it at the old folks home.

I always search by the exact title rather than keywords. If somebody has published the story from another news source using a different title that’s not my worry. Just title search and you’re done.

This can only occur when transistioning from being not logged to logged in with a stuned beeber, in Daylight Savings Time, during or shortly after heavy meteorite activity. It’s a programming anomaly that the tireless staff at FR are working on, but as you might imagine, the underlying conditions are hard to duplicate.

And BTW I put it in breaking, I think that’s important enough to be there. I am sorry but I did not see it either in frontpage or breaking. We don’t have much time so I thought breaking for that topic would be may be more important that obama having a good time on his vacations - which is there since yesterday and was bumped again to the top this morning???

Next time you might try a simpler search. The previous article comes up with a title search of Alaska.

You are right, I entered the full title and found it. Sorry mods. Still not in frontpage news though. Should be there.

I would suggest that Sarah get her keester up to Alasks right now. If Miller gets screwed I don’t see how she can claim to represent the state.

Make sure you search on title, not keywords. The search defaults to keywords, and unless someone tags the articles with the keywords, you won't see it.

As someone else suggests, a simpler query is better.

Don’t let people kid you too much.

Google search on ‘advanced’ and restricted to the freerepublic.com domain is a MUCH better way to search than to use the FR search engine.

I sometimes think that the FR search function, if it were a searchlight, would have a hard time finding a moth.

See it? Did you search for it? As in using the search function?

Seeing is different from searching.

Did you know?

Uhh.. she quit. She does not claim to represent the state.

She represents milking the cash cow. Pay her and she'll think about it.

You just need to know how to use it.

First, completely prepare & proof read your article for posting.

Second, open 6 tabs or windows, and run a slightly different search in each one, then comb the ‘Results Not Found’ pages, until you’re able to deduce that somebody, at some time, MAYBE already posted it, and the Mods are hiding it until you go ahead and...

Third, hit the >Post< button.

Fourth, hold breath until Mods laugh and point; or 3 minutes, whichever comes first.

LOL. Yer welcome. I would NOT have seen the article, save for a good friend sending me the link in FR mail!

FWIW, until Todd, Sarah, Joe Miller or Tea Party Express asks for money, I’m not donating again.

The more important question is, did you search for the terms “self-absorbed”, “petulant”, or “zotbait” before posting this follow-up thread?

you searched for your “red alert” article title with the search term “redalert” (no space)? self-inflicted wound.

You can also have better luck posting just after taking a shower.

You'll donate money to a rich unemployed guy? Whyever for?
His only job is to rake in the cash from his old lady's appearances and the book that she had written for her.

He needs donations? Does he have a crack habit or what?

“Sounds very SERIES! We should send more money!”

The only thing SERIES would be sending more money without performing ethnic low-fat diversity studies. It would be historically negligent to offend lesbian transsexual illegal immigrant single mothers out of a rush to judgement on this issue. And that’s precisely what might happen if the appropriate grant-funded staudies are not carried out.
