Why was a founding member of the FreeRepublic LLC 501(c) board banned by a housewife modmin/admin?
FreeRepublic LLC, 501(C), Sacramento California ^ | Happy OpusEve's Day? | JerseyHighlander

Posted on 03/08/2010 2:17:34 PM PST by JerseyHighlander

Why was a founding member of the FreeRepublic LLC 501(c) board banned by a modmin/admin who is no more than a volunteer sitting at home on a ego trip?

How many thousands of archive pages were just fractured due to this foolishness?

Not only should a full explanation be given to the public, the admin who approved this measure needs to be publicly named, and publicly defend the position.

THis is the most abject failure of the modmin system that John Robinson devised in the history of FR since the rebuild in 1999.

If the admin powered individual was anyone other than current or former formal members of the LLC, the admin must be removed from the admin level and any admins who want to defend that admin should also make themselves publicly known and defend their position.

This banning is an indictment on the failure of the admins of this website. That is putting it politely.

So who got banned and why is it a big deal?

Are you trying to be vague or are you just drunk?

BOBJ was banned.

Abject breakdown of civility due to failure in oversight of admin group.

We are not a 501c and he was not a founding member. But he has taken to trolling FR, recently, posting insults, taunts and personal attacks I’ve promised him he’ll earn a suspension every time I catch him doing so.

I love Frito Pie because the chili is already pretty hearty and then the Fritos add some salt and grease.

Awesome!

Without the opus, who would have even known about this? Breaking news?

I have been trying to eat a little healthier. Yesterday we were in a rush and I told the kids I’d take them out. What did they want? Krystal. I could feel the grease coursing through my veins.

I was just wondering if maybe your question might have been answered just as directly, and might you look a little less petty if you had simply directed your inquiry to JimRob via FReepmail rather than posting a vanity thread that causes a lot of folks to ask “WTF”?

if you are lost in the woods in the rain, and need to build a fire, a bag of Fritos makes amazingly good kindling.

The oil in the Fritos burns for ages, enough to dry out some sticks and get the fire going.

I've decided to stage a hijack and turn this into a religion thread.

Your Cat-tholic theology is incorrect.

That is Long Cat and Tac Gnol, not the false gods Ceiling Cat and Basement Cat.

The Free Republic Network is a 501(c)(4) non profit corporation managed by a Board of Directors. It is separate from the Free Republic Forum, which is owned and operated by Free Republic, LLC, a privately held California corporation.

BobJ was not on that Board with you?

He was banned a while back, as I recall. After numerous warnings from Jim himself.

Did he get reinstated and re-banned?

Thanks for the clarification, Jim. I presume that he was only suspended, for now....

I saw this thread pulled, then restored — probably a good thing, albeit not deserving of “breaking news”.

FRN bit the dust years ago, didn’t it?

We had us a Houston chapter back then, and used the FRN as a planning site.

It died, so we created our own.

But .... but ... the best part is the American cheese (oh, and the chopped onions). It is a complete potential heart attack neatly contained in an individual-serving Frito packet. Especially if you eat three.

BobJ probably went over the line with his PDS. I met Bob, and I like him, but he really hates Sarah, and anything that goes against the Republican establishment.

Very true. I have used Fritos as an effective fire starter for years.
