My first and only shameless 10th anniversary vanity
December 8, 2010 | Catfish1957

Posted on 12/08/2010 4:25:21 PM PST by catfish1957

I have never posted a vanity thread, but if and when I did it I wanted it to be on my 10th anniversay as being a Freeper. Yeah I lurked back in '98 during the Lewinsky debacle, but it took a chorus of "Getting Out of Dick Cheney's House" to take the plunge.

Through the years I think most of us have had small differences on matters, but in essence this site is like a family, and I truly think some of the best people in our great country regularly post here.

Till Decemember 8, 2020 Best Freegards>CF1957

Wow, September 1998. I can remember back in the old days you could capture your member number (sequence). Do you remember yours?

This calls for a toast! and freeper testimonials.

Here’s mine:

I was spending so much time on FR one time I wasn’t answering my phone enough. Or my email. My girlfriend at the time got so disgusted she went to FR website and signed on under the name “mamelukesabre2” and replied to some of my latest posts by scolding me for not paying enough attention to her. I don’t remember the exact words.

The only reason I'm replying to this post is to find out what my sign-up date was. Dec 31, I think, but I don't remember what year.

Yep. The plan was to sign up right before Y2K, but my FIL died, and I had to sign up a day early because I was going to be travelling. Shows where my priorities are, eh?

You are joking, right?
Because if you’re not, all you have to do is look at your profile page or pass your cursor over anyone’s name on a thread to see their sign up date.

No joke. The fastest way to get to my profile page or mouse over my screen name was to find one of my replies to a post, so I created one for the purpose. ;)

Just wait, you'll get old and do weird stuff, too.

LOL, well you did sign up on Dec 30, 1999.
If I want to get to someone’s comments fast I click on anyone’s name and get to their profile and then type in the name I want it the search box at the top right. Fast that way.

Merry Christmas to you!

“...it took a chorus of “Getting Out of Dick Cheney’s House”

LOL! I signed up about that time too, 12/04/2000 for me.

Congrats on your anniversary and thanks for reminding me of my own.

You are certainly correct in your praise of our brother and sister freepers, this truly is the best spot on the internet and yes, we’ve had, continue to have, and will always have our disagreements, but I think this site is truly a force for good in our country and in the world.

I can’t even remember how I knew to come here during the Floriduh Fiasco, but somehow I did. I wanted to go out and protest and indeed I found a location via FR.

We thought things were bad then, and then less than a year later they got so much worse.

I think maybe they are starting to get a little better now. But we’ve learned that we must always pay attention.

Free Republic helps us do that.

Enjoy your special day!
