So what's up? I had a couple of posts yanked...
Vanity

Posted on 11/27/2011 6:56:48 PM PST by Winstons Julia

Is there trouble with the site or did I do something wrong? One was a story about a five-legged lamb and the other was a story about video games in men's bathroom urinals.

They seemed like harmless enough stories ... and I really don't post much.

I don’t know.

Maybe they didn’t think you edited yourself.

Probably mechanical problems, is my guess.

Since you have no way of knowing, repost the articles now that the site is operational and then you will know. :)

Maybe the combination of the urinal story and the lamb’s “fifth leg” made the Mods feel icky.

The site was down for a while, I don’t know why, a sign said maintenance. It happened that a lot of people had multiple posts trying to get theirs through. But it’s working ok now.

The toilet one made for some chuckles on a Sunday night. Thanks for the effort. I hope it wasn’t a PC thing.

That is not the purpose of FR.

Now, if it had been a pic of an adorable kitten or what crazy, slutty outfit Cher was wearing on some red carpet, or what you're cooking on the bbq, you wouldn't have had your posts pulled.

When you use sexual terms like “post yanking” why are you surprised?

The site was having some troubles earlier. Could have been that. I don’t think it was the content of the articles, but then who knows. I posted an article about the vid game urinals just the other day and it didn’t get yanked....

You seem to have a tendency to post junk that has absolutely nothing to do with FR’s agenda. Threads about urine, large Breast, Cemented butts. New year girly post...leg hair, rear-wheel drive...

Absolute crap.

Was the lamb at a urinal? If so, was it REALLY a fifth leg, or did it just look like one?

Oh come on.

As someone on this comment section said ... they posted the story about the video games and it remained.

The story about a five legged lamb, I thought, was interesting...

Why be a jerk? Go ahead and just kick me off your site then. But you’ll say goodbye to any future donations from me and it has been in the hundreds so far.

You let other people post similar things all the time. Life can’t be politics 24/7...

And with all due respect to the moderator’s authority ... why does Free Republic HAVE a section clearly for blogs if the mods, owner and some posters are averse to blogs?

Just have a no blogs policy.

Just thinking that if the 5 legged lamb were dressed out and being roasted on a spit over a bed of coals it’d been OK.

One of my comments was pulled because I used the medical term for the intact membrane that makes a female a virgin. As a joke I referred to that membrane as a “doo-hickey” in numerous other posts on the thread and the mods left me alone. It was on a thread about the perpetual virginity of Mary. If we have the same mod we had that day, this post will probably be pulled!

Yeah...whatever. The mod’s the mod... but I don’t “tend” to post crap. I don’t post as much as other people, but I’ve posted plenty of things that had good discussions and participation. And I’ve seen much worse than this mod has yanked remain on the discussion forum when others post it.

Let me get this straight they yanked the fifth leg on your lamb as a game in the urinal??? I get so confused around here.

I saw the yank messages, pretty much that it was a waste of bandwidth and does nothing for FR. JR’s house, JR’s rules.

They just don’t like lambs in the urinal. That doesn’t seem like an odd policy.
