Do a user search on Buckhead. He’s still posting, just post a request to him or Freepmail him.

“The first known posting came on the hotly conservative Free Republic site at 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 8 — less than four hours after the story aired — from a man dubbed Buckhead.”

You really have to have seen a live thread unwind in real time to appreciate the beauty of it. TankerKC’s real-time comment lit the fuse. That’s the thing about a live thread; you have an eclectic collection of subject-matter expects, better than any focus group the MSM could pull into a conference room and they are right on top of anything that looks out of kilter. Eventually the right expert, Buckhead in this case, connects the dots and voila, news is made.

That wasn't it. There was an earlier thread.
It posted a letter without letterhead. Then it asked "What do you think?"
It was around the time that Kerry's book, The New Soldier with VVAW activists flying the American flag upside down, was being debated on FR.

Howlin, every single one of these memos to file is in a proportionally spaced font, probably Palatino or Times New Roman.

In 1972 people used typewriters for this sort of thing, and typewriters used monospaced fonts.

The use of proportionally spaced fonts did not come into common use for office memos until the introduction of laser printers, word processing software, and personal computers. They were not widespread until the mid to late 90's. Before then, you needed typesetting equipment, and that wasn't used for personal memos to file. Even the Wang systems that were dominant in the mid 80's used monospaced fonts.

I am saying these documents are forgeries, run through a copier for 15 generations to make them look old.

This should be pursued aggressively.

Brings chills! It was an awesome time.

The very first thread had, I think, the "th" in the top center of the document and something on the right and then lower, something on the left.
I was pinged and it'll have my comments about 5 or 6 comments down from the top.

I don’t know, Yosemitest. Did you have a secondary account on Free Republic at that time? I’ve looked through your comment history and this is the September/October 2004 timeframe:

I don’t see the comment you are referring to.

Cheers

Today we'd have people coming in here telling us "Hey, that's a Perry thread ~ stick to the topic ~ don't be discussin' nobody else".

Back then we brought possibly relevant information to bear on a topic because we'd learned that sometimes it turns out to be KEY TO A MAJOR DISCOVERY.

I didn't have a secondary account, but thanks for the link.
How did you do a search for my comments with a date timeframe?
I'd like to know how to do that.

The key is with the url number: ...index?more=22892953

I just kept decreasing the first number in the url link associated with your posts and comments until I got close to the 2004 time frame. Then, I fine tuned the other digits in the url number until I hit upon a number that encompassed the September 2004 time frame.

Back in the 1980s and early 1990s, I was what you might call a hacker. Got busted. Stopped hacking. Er... Sort of stopped. ;)

Cheers

I too looked that up several months ago, along with Powerline's original thread.

Some people found themselves with an important opportunity to serve and then did so. And in so doing they exposed others who were enthusiastically doing the devil's work.

May we recognize our opportunities and act as wisely.

When I click on earlier post, I can't get any earlier than 10/20/2002, (http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/by:yosemitest/index?more=14480704)but I've been a member since Since Jan 22, 1999.
Why can't I find earlier post? Is it because of a reformating of Free Republic due to a virus reload?

That’s odd...

For a control, I traced kristinn’s (Freeper since 1998) comments back to September 5, 2001 before they were truncated:

http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/by:kristinn/index?more=203747

So, obviously, there’s some sort of black hole in the archives once you start going back that far. Maybe there was a hard drive crash or something in the past?

I have a few other theories; but, without further information, a hard crash would be the most likely scenario.

Cheers

To quote Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser...

I decided to see if I could find out how far back the articles on Free Republic’s database go.

When I walked backwards through all the articles posted on Free Republic, the earliest post I can find is:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/516415/posts

Post #516414 has been deleted, and all the posts that I have tried to access below that post number give me an error message of:

“No such file (give_legacy_article)”

So, something had to have happened which deleted all posts and comments before Sept. 4, 2001.

However, it appears that the user database was kept intact (else everyone would have had to sign up again in 2001).

So, that tells me that there’s an Admin out there somewhere on Free Republic who knows exactly what happened to the database.

Jim Robinson would be my pick. Maybe you could ask him.

Another thought occurred to me: Back around the 2000 time frame, Free Republic was getting sued for copyright infringement:

http://www.freerepublic.com/judgment.htm

Maybe Jim decided to dump a bunch of articles and start over. Just a quick guess.

Cheers

I was introduced to Free Republic in September, 1999 when I started a new job.
As I recall, FR was in the process of adopting an entirely new forum software (or developing one) and I suspect that that the new software made the previous "archive" incompatible.
My fuzzy memory suggests that there was also a subsequent major change, but it might have been a serious system crash.
