what are the rules for posting? maybe they should be spelled out. i'm getting a little irritated @ FR. are FReeper's no longer able to speak their minds? is their a thread that could enlighten me to the politically correct manner in which threads/responses should be posted?
(Excerpt) Read more at freerepublic.com ...
Rule number 1: Use caps in the first letter in a sentance and for all proper nouns.
Make sure you post stories supportive of Mitt Romney.
IBTZ? Does anyone else smell ozone??
welcome to the infobahn! :)
Don’t Place Turtles on Posts?
You gotta say Amish.
In reference to what, Robo? What there a particular thread you were having probs with? Not quite sure the specifics.
this is in response to 2 deleted posts by jetjaguar. ibtz. i don’t think so.
Are you logged in?
And hit the “spell” button so you don’t misspell words like “sentence”.
I tried to make a point.
It's not a big deal to me.
But, like the shooting at the Pentagon, the IRS flyer nutcase and the Alabama university shooter looney, are being treated as right winger crimes.
The media refuses to look at the left as haters.
a couple of posts by jet jaguar that compared bush to a chimp, and michelle obama to the same.
Just askin’ after 9 1/2 years?
Maybe you should have waited a little longer with this....
Just a pulled thread for mentioning a boston.com article.
Could you be more specific? Yes, the place has changed since you and I started, and not for the better. But, the great majority of the time posts are deleted for good, obvious reasons that are spelled out on the site.
He's been signed up since 6/29/00.
More likely the smell is whiskey. ;^)
I would think a post comparing the first lady to a chimp would be deleted because that is racist.
“is their a thread,” = “is there a thread. (oops!)
“maybe they should be spelled out.”
Boston herald and email and Michelle Obama.
more likely beer, but who’s watching. :) seriously though, it’s irritating to me to see humorous threads taken down because of political correctness.
Don’t say anything negative about the mormon threads that appear every thirty minutes.
Racist against which one?
And, if there was something in those comparing her to a chimp, that is racist and doesn’t fly here.
Never piss off Jim Thompson.
Always spam other websites.
Yea, that’s why I though it was weird, you’d think after 10 years, they’d know what the rules are around here...
I think it would be stupid to have a set in stone rule book. It’s an evolving medium.
since there are albino chimps, comparing bush to a chimp is racist as well? right?
Don’t say anything negative about Sarah Palin, Ron Paul or Duncan Hunter. If you do then you are instantly called a RINO or Zot.
You are drunk, aren’t you?

you mean jim ROBINSON?
Never piss off Fred Thompson.
a "few" beers never hurt anyone. :^) anyhoo. this is just an ongoing pet peeve that has boiled to the surface.
You remind me of another freeper.
When you speak of another FReeper you should put that FReeper’s name in the ping separated by semi-colon.
You’ve been signed up since 2000 and you don’t know? Thinking there is more to this post.
Ignoring a question you can’t answer is racist. You’re a racist, you racist.
i think you should post everything in a non linear stream of semi consciousness making sure to ping all the mods and jim robinson while supporting homos huckabees romnoids paulestinians and al franken while completely ignoring punctuation capital letters and make sure to attack a bunch of long time freepers and reference art bell john titor and the time machine closing your posts with as much profanity and obscene references as possible that is sure to get you noticed and respected and add a lot of pictures of helen thomas
It’s a news article in the Boston Herald.
I was simply trying to show how former President Bush was compared to a monkey numerous times.
The Herald never printed an article about that.
You said “ it’s irritating to me to see humorous threads taken down because of political correctness.”
I am just trying to guess. But I think the reason is that there are plenty of people who browse through FR, just to find a post, that they can then use to claim that FR is “racist and a hate site”. They can take things out of context, in fact, I have seen such things not only on the internet, but even on TV news, by people who are trying to discredit FR. We don’t want to give them any ammunition.
While people post something just for fun, without any malice, but those posts could be misinterpreted and used against FR. Sad, but true - it’s the times we live in.
