Vanity: Questions for FR protocol;

Posted on 03/23/2009 12:49:30 PM PDT by shotdog

I'm new and I have several questions regarding procedure. Is it allowed to email excerpted articles posted here? If so, how do I do it? What is the meaning of "ping", "banglist" and "bump?" Mrs. Dog wants to know, too. Thanks.

Ping - draw another poster(s) attention to a thread by including their screen name in the to: box.

Banglist - of interest to 2nd Amendment posters.

Bump - a content-free post meant to get articles back into the Latest Comments view.

You can forward links via emails just as long as you make a donation to the Free Republic Moderator's Retirement/Beer Party fund (just kidding, we only have a beer fund).

To beer, or not to beer; that is the question. Will consult the Exchequer prior to the next quarter fund drive. This is inarguably the best of the blogs. Thanks.

Ping is the sound when you over tighten a bolt and it breaks. Usually in a very difficult to fix situation.
Bump is the sound of strange things in the night when your’re hiding under the covers.
Banglist I’m not sure about, but I think it’s a country close to India or something.
Yes, you can e-mail from the posted articles but a fee must be paid first. Contact me with a credit card number and we’ll discuss it further.
PS, best we keep this between us. Momma doesn’t need to know.

I always thought “ping” was a reference to the archaic days of DOS. When you were trying to link two computers together back in the day, you “pinged” them to see if they were receiving the signal. And this term was itself a reference to the military term used in sonar communications between subs.

So when you “ping” someone on FR, you are essentially saying “did you get that signal?”

The Scots and the Irish are separated only by the Irish Sea. Single malt is single malt. The difference lies in the treatment of the malt. Either way, they’re the nectar of the gods. And I concede that Irish beer is three orders of magnitude better that that of Scotland. We could take a page from all the folks across the pond.

Um. Yeah. Geithner might take umbrage, though. Seriously, I can’t believe how fast our country is tanking. Obama is taking the country over the cliff, and the front wheels are already treading air.

I’d like to know, though, how the Scots could come up with Single Malt but also Haggis.

Enquiring minds and all that.

Oh. And a “knockle” is when the bolt breaks, and you fail to attenuate quickly muscle force, resulting in the departure of 1/2 square inch of dermal surface sited over the mid-carpal falange. Result: owee.

Well, to be fair, America has Square Dancing and Scandinavia has Polka’s. So, can’t claim the Irish have cornered the market when it comes to ridiculous dances.
