OK. Thanks. Here is a cartoon I got in an email and someone has been kind enough to host it for me.

Funniest of all, a cliche masquerading as cleverness:

“If you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.” - mlocher

I noticed that you quoted me without putting my words in italics or bold. It is customary on this site to so do. I'll let you go with a warning this time, but next time I will be forced to notify the administrator, who just might zot you.

I accidently hit the ‘p’ instead of the ‘br’ and that drops all html. I’ll be more careful in the future.

FWIW, only one cartoonist ever asked me to stop posting his work & that was from his syndicators after he became syndicated. Some cartoonists e-mailed me their work directly. Others asked me to use a click-on link back to their sites...

The quote in toto is from the blog.

So, Mr. Maxim is complaining because he (or “his friend”) is not allowed to post something on Free Republic?

I wonder....does he support Free Republic with his donations?

Family Circus was (is?) the lamest excuse of a comic strip imaginable.

Well, it may be because cute little Billy is now a 60-year-old wino, wandering a dotted line from liquor store to liquor store. But then...I can identify...

He wants Bryce to be able to post here but if a FReeper posts a comment on his MySpace blog and if he doesn’t like it he deletes it.

Yeah, kinda like liberals do.

Apparently it’s a big deal to him, what with posting an
update with comments from this thread and all. Very big deal.

Blogpimps and ‘toonpimps are obviously quite a sensitive lot.

Uh oh, beware the fury of ‘artiste’.
Artiste always wears his beret ‘just so’, always has his nose in the air ‘just so’, and always is the first to tell you just how low he regards you on the food chain because HE is ‘enlightened’.
*snicker*

Let’s give him some of my coffee.

I consider both mimes and artistes very high on the badass scale and never mess with either.

Actually my post was about grief another poster was getting about his bad grammar when posting from his smart phone.

"Blogs that do little more than grab headlines from a news source, post them in their blog entries, and then post one-liners here hoping to get people to go look at their blog where they put the lifted newspaper story — that is what we like to ridicule.

"The worst bloggers actually lift images and videos, and post them in a way that marks them from the blog, as if the blog generated them. Sometimes they then get upset when links are posted directly to the items."

Here is a thread posted today on FR from FOX Nation
With an excerpt you have to click on
The story is lifted from (CNN)
About what Trunmp said on ABC news
On a linked video from Politico

Yet a conservative activist posts a video on his blog with his own comments about it, links to it on FR properly in the bloggers forum, and gets flamed for pimping and not having produced it?

Just seems like a double standard to me. How is this foxnation guy any different than the blog pimps?

If the blogger has any significant comments on his blog about a video, then the link into bloggers is for people to read what he thought about the video, and the title would be his title of his blog post commenting on the video.

I’m talking about bloggers who grab an article with a video, post the article title, name their blog the same title, put the link to the video in their blog, and put a comment liks “Look at this cool video”.

Or worse, most of their blog entry is quotes from the article, which end up exceeding fair use limits on FR, and then people start quoting from it into FR and might be violating our standards.

And as I said, worse still some of them manage to put their blog “watermark” on the video they have lifted, or put words in suggesting it’s their video.

That article wasn't pimped, since the thread poster wasn't the writer and Fox News is on the copyright/excerpt only list.

If you feel so strongly about the blogpimp issue, perhaps you should take it up with JimRob, although I think you'll find him less than receptive for arguments defending blogpimping.

Wasn’t defending blogpimping. Was asking what the difference was between that FOX link (which was simply a story lifted from CNN about what was said on ABC with video hosted by politico) and what some creative conservative bloggers do.

I got my answer, its about the bloggers themselves posting links to their own blogs on FR using unneeded one line excerpts that force traffic to go to their site when they could simply post their article in full.


Sometimes asking questions is not an argument but an attempt to understand. Thanks to my fellow freepers....now I do :)

Not because he particularly like what I offer, but because he has decided that what I asked for isn’t worthy of respecting.
