pretty soon you'll only be able to post Free Republic sources on Free Republic.

What exactly are you basing your presumption upon? You’ve stated no reasoning for why you believe such a thing will happen.

As long as one can post links, it’s all good.

I’m OK with excerpts and links. News sites gotta generate revenue somehow.

pssst - keep this a secret - but I rarely read anything posted from the worthless liberal sites. If people are now longer allowed to post from Slime, Newsweak, New York Slimes, etc, it won't affect my reading habits one bit.

(And don't bother to flame me that the phrase “worthless liberal” is redundant - I just used it for emphasis.)

Hmmm..what forums are you subscribed to? I just casually scrolled down my FR page and didn't find one source you mentioned. BBC, NBC, Townhall, Reuters, Washington Times, Canada Free press, CBS, the Register, the Boston Hearld, and lots more.

That is why JimRob needs to find some new ways of funding this site

Get together with Andrew Brietbart or the Koch Brothers or something...

This site is too important to go begging each quarter

Plus, I HOPE he gets rich from this site (we LOVE capitalism here, don’t we? - and Jimrob, you hit a home run with this site)

To: Mr. K

I doubt how this site is funded has anything to do with what sites are restricted or banned from being posted. At that, if it went from a voluntary, not for profit to a site that took advertising and was listed as a commercial venture, it could put it up for more lawsuit risk.

Quarter? It seems like every month that giant bar is pushing down yet more headlines.

They could charge people for the privilege of joining and posting. I’ve been on other sites where that happened after it was all free.

Of course, the usership would go down sharply real fast.

Worst case, I don’t see even that as an obstacle to FR.

Our founders didn’t post links, or copy/paste.

They did just fine without it.

I tried to post something from bloomberg.com and got a source not allowed error

It was a pretty weighty story too, about $1.2 trillion in secret loans that predate TARP that just came to light.

I’ve tried Blomberg before as well. They are very content protective. I think you can just post link only. I see a lot like that.

Personally, I’ve had posts rejected simply because the article came from the ‘enemies list’ such as the Huffington blogspot, even though it had nothing to do with politics, just archeology.

I wonder if there isn’t some value in posting articles that don’t agree with our Freeper fellowhip if only to fight their falsehoods and bad philosophy with our brillian contrary arguments??

We often accuse the Left of being blind to the opinion of conservatives because they don’t read our side of the story. But I guess the majority of informed opinion here at FR doesn’t want to read about the other side either.
