Vietnam Vet told to cut down on posts.
68-69TonkinGulfYachtClub

Posted on 09/13/2004 9:16:03 PM PDT by 68-69TonkinGulfYachtClub

Well it seemds like some FReepers want me to shut up and NOT post on threads.
They call it spamming.
Well if I didn't post the way I do the dims and media wouldn't notice.
Just ask yourself why did FOX finally run the Steve Pitkin story today?
Why did Rush mention that Edwards never served when he could have last week?
And do me a favor, come directly to me, not the Admin Moderator if you have a complaint.
So I'll shut up and toe the line.
I'd hate to upset certain FReepers.

Nobody is forced to read your posts; I'm grateful to be on your "ping" list even if I don't read every single post due to time constraints.

Do you really think that the things that you mentioned can be attributed to your input alone? If that were the case, I would guess you wouldn't be catching any flack.

I put in the complaint. I'm sorry if I offended you. And you're right, on reflection I should have come to you first.

I know you feel strongly about John Kerry, we all do.

I submitted the complaint after seeing this thread:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/1214992/posts

This was not the first time I've seen this post. But this post is pretty much irrelevant to the thread. Your post take up about 50% of a 18 post thread that already has large graphics. It's the equivalent to taking a megaphone into a crowded room.

Maybe in the future you could put this info on your personal info page and just provide a link with a description to said page. I (and maybe other) would appreciate it.

So every knucklehead who sighned up last week can post unlimited vanity posts, but you guys get muzzled.

I say let the Vets post what they want, when they want.

You better not stop posting your comments! I won't stand for it!

I am very sorry to hear this. I have gained much information from your posts, and I do get to select what I want to read.

You among others have indeed made certain that JFKerry did not pull off his "hoax" of hero status, rather exposed him as "vietnam warlord".

Pitkin was at the Vietnam Veterans Against John Kerry rally in DC yesterday. OESY told me he saw it televised on cable via satellite on C-Span near Albany, NY. I saw a new Swiftee ad today with Pitkin saying he gave false testimony after being urged to do so by Kerry and the others leaders in VVAW. That's what Pitkin said yesterday.

Here's one that no one will complain about you posting.

Silver Star After-Action Report Found!
Backs up Swift Vets story...written by John Kerry!

One of my local television stations, Fox - Baltimore, just broadcast a breaking news item: they have received a copy of the After Action report from the US Navy Archives and have posted it online. According to the commentary, they say that the after-action report was written by John Kerry.

The After-Action Report Can be Found Here:

Page 1
Page 2

I'm no expert on after-action reports, so at this point I turn this over to the milibloggers and other experts in the field to further analyze.

NOTE: If you link to this post, please make sure you leave a TrackBack so that I can make sure to follow any additional information you develop. If you cannot leave a TrackBack, e-mail me using the link at the top of the sidebar to keep me up-to-date.

Happy hunting, fellow bloggers!

MY SOURCING: I'm basing this post on the editorial/commentary on Fox - Baltimore. It was publicized on their regular commentary titled "The Point" - the link to which can be found on the right-hand side of their home page. Once you reach "The Point" page, use the drop down box to select "Kerry and the Killing - September 13, 2004 from their archives to view and/or read the commentary on which this post is based.

Plese, please don't stop your posts. They contain a ton of infortmative links! Thank you so much for your service as a vet and your continued service with your mission to educate gen Xers like me about kerry, the Vietnam war, and the horrific treatment Vietnam vets encountered when they returned home, in no small part because of kerry. You are contributing valuable information. Please ignore the posting police/hall monitors. Please continue to educate this Vietnam neophyte. Thank you for your service!!!!

You're not "allowed" to commment? For some reason, I don't see that happening. :::giggle::: The Edwards didn't serve business has been a perfect "silencer" to the YAP I have to deal with in my neck of the woods about Bush didn't serve.

AND, the way I understand it... you can get on or off a ping list by simply requesting it.

Don't you DARE stop posting, Tonk! Fork anyone that disagrees and that damn horse they came in on.

Like the one poster said: if they don't want to read your posts, they do not HAVE to.

This burns me up! From the way some Freepers post, I feel like I fell into DU hell.

Keep up the great work, Tonk, and don't allow a certain few to stop you. Don't give them the satisfaction.

Promise me????

Maybe in the future you could put this info on your personal info page and just provide a link with a description to said page. I (and maybe other) would appreciate it.

This isn't my "fight"...but I'm stepping in anyway.

If Tonk were to do that, VERY FEW PEOPLE would take the time to follow that link. You (we ALL) know that FR's being watched FAR MORE than anytime in it's history. I WANT those posts out there. If some lurker, or someone in the MSM trips across them...well, think of the POSITIVE things that can happen!!!

As with any posts, my motto is just scroll on by if you don't want to read it.
