Why should my conservative sister-in-law...

Why should my well-informed, conservative sister-in-law who has been lurking regularly at FR for months, if not years now, sign up for an account here? For some reason, she is reluctant. Help me convince her with some good FReeper common sense and humour, and I'll show her this thread later.

P.S. Tonight I may have recruited a very well informed, conservative neighbour to join the forces too. :) We went to the Israel Awareness event at Faith Bible Chapel in Arvada, CO and she got a signed book by Pastor John Hagee.

Gives you the forum for the ultimate zinger.

First Amendment rocks.

If she is conservative, why would she NOT open an account on Free Republic? What’s not to like? Where is she going to find a more intelligent, well informed gaggle of “conspiracy theorists”? Maybe we can find a tinfoil hat to fit her.

Tell her no girls are allowed. She probably isn’t smart enough. We don’t want her here! (the old reverse psychology trick:)

To your sister-in-law:

A couple of my friends are longtime Freepers, although they haven’t posted in quite a while because of life & time constraints. I got curious, and I lurked here for three years before signing up to post a year ago. It’s like having a home among like-minded folks. Freeper humor is the best, and it’s a kick to scroll down a thread, knowing someone will have voiced exactly what’s on your mind.

Lurking is fun, but getting involved is even better.

Noobies are always treated with the utmost respect. Their opinions are highly valued unless they are just wrong of course .

So she can celebrate on election night with like minded cyber buddies. (I lurked for years and years.)

Oh DR! That might just do the trick with this one! Excellent.

As long as she considers thoughtfully everything she says before she posts, there should be no problem. I had similar concerns when I was considering moving from lurk status. I have found it to be a joy to communicate with the special folks who gather here.

Are you kidding? The way we now treat newcomers, I don’t think I’d dive in at this time.

I’d wait until after the election dust settles. Everyone is way too prickly right now.

She'll find some of the best humor here that can be found on the web. And FR is a wealth of information. The readers are often just as well, or better informed than the writers who pen the articles Freepers post.

If you've got a need for information, and you value fact over BS...FR is the place to find it.

Let me count the ways...tell her she can kick butt and take names. Would that work for her.

She’s pretty feisty! That might do the trick for her too.

How’s THAT? (I’m serious this time....)
