Censored Freeper Question (vanity)

Posted on 07/06/2008 7:48:07 PM PDT by Siberian-psycho

Hey fellow Freepers. I'm going to be away for two years because of an overseas committment in a land where I will be censored and cannot visit sites like this.

What will happen to my account on Free Republic? Can I let it sit inactive that long?


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: yes

Look up “Tor” or other such options for your access.

FR doesn’t tombstone inactive accounts, from my knowledge. But I could see why you’d want to keep your login name.

Thanks for the info. I will check out Tor.

I'm not sure, I guess with the warm thought that there are still some fellow freepers watching out for freedom from domestic enemies.

Don’t do any goning while you are there.

I have been overseas many times.

Goning was not needed.

We get trolls that have used long dormant accounts to pop up, and then get zotted back down.

I don’t see a problem.

You won’t even be able to get internet by cell phone?

I’ve attached a note to your account explaining the situation, so it should still be here on your return.

What country are you going to where you can not access the internet?

“You won’t even be able to get internet by cell phone?”

It be pretty risky. I have enough risks without that to worry about.

I can access it, but in extremely censored form. Forums that are rip on Muslims, like all my comments do would surely make my head roll. I kind of like it where it is.

Well, just rest assured that whilst your gone, we'll have your back here at home.

God Bless, and take care of yourself (meaning, keep your head on straight).

My husband had longer bans than that. Enjoy your trip and don’t make the government mad.

Don't worry, it is usually the other way around.

All FR accounts are tied to a specific email address.

I moved once and changed ISPs. Took me a week to remember my password.

So, check your FR account and see if you are using an email from an ISP OR any source you won’t have access to on your return. Change your FR account’s associated email as needed.

Change your FR password to a random strong password you use for no other website. Email yourself the password. Archive the email.

There are very easy ways of getting around things like you'll be facing. Maybe one of our more tech savvy Freepers can tell you about spoofing to avoid these problems.

As always, stay low, move slow and keepth thy head down.

Their is no trouble getting FR in China. If they are going there, then no need to mothball the account.

Send pictures!

Didn’t see where you were going, but I did work in Indonesia, Angola, Afghanistan and a lot of other places and wasn’t restricted.

Maybe because we had Satellite on our compound, when it worked.

Good luck to you,

Phil

Simple. You will be destroyed because you will, by your silence, be assumed to be a McQueeg supporter,

Happy trails!
