Free Republic began life as a traditional bulletin board in the earliest days of the internet, on a usenet, I think the term was, I forget which one. Early nineties time-frame.

FR itself was established in 1996 after JimRob became dis-satisfied with it’s former home. He kept it as close as possible to the former bulletin board format. FR still retains the basic look and feel of the original.
