DOJ tells schools to ease up on discipline, especially for black students
January 9, 2014

Posted on 01/09/2014 7:35:58 AM PST by IbJensen

I see where this was removed from FREE Republic with the reason given by the 'moderator' as it being a rip off.

That's just not true. In fact it's a barefaced lie!

Do you people do any research before your arbitrarily remove an article of importance?

This was posted on GOP's site and credit was given to AP for writing the artucle, it then excerpted.

I'm developing an opinion that some of you faceless censors qualify for a position with the central socialist government.

I'm not bragging, but I do give MY fair share to the operation of this website. Treating those who were under the mistaken idea that they belonged to something is merely misty fairy tale stuff.

This action was totally uncalled for!

Have you any comments and do you know what the moderators are doing in your name?

Then they aren’t doing a very good job of censoring because this is at least the third thread I’ve seen on this story.

If that’s what it was then why wasn’t that the reason given? I used the deep article search and couldn’t find one that was written in this way, or any way for that matter. I did see the article on GOP and used it with a proper excerpt as it was written by AP Staffers.

**DOJ tells schools to ease up on discipline**

Mother Superior would not agree.

How else does a child learn not to make mistakes if there is no discipline?

This is a typical problem with volunteers —so hard to get good help these days —for free.

At any rate seems there’s a lot of us w/ admin gripes —posts deleted, getting banned, etc. Back during my fuss I heard from many others that have had admin probs but since then I’ve come to the suspicion that among our admin volunteers there are more than one points of view and we got factions in conflict.

In the mean time I’ve been making it a point to frequent other similar forums (number of good ones out there & FR is not the only game in town) just in case...

Are you series?

I’ve seen several articles from different sources over the last couple of days regarding this eaxct story?

Perhaps the mods pulled a dupe. Or a non-linked story. Or one of many threads that are posted here that are badly excerpted and posted.

Get over it.

Case in point.

There is yet another Holder “blacks are discrimiated against” thread just 5 threads away from here.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3109951/posts

More will likely be posted later in the day.

IMO, if anything - the mods don’t do enough thread deleting.

Who knows? Suck it up and move on. My experience is that posting the complaining type threads is the quickest way possible to get your FR account zotted.

No. Look, I know FR’s search function sux. But go to the Forum. Hit Ctrl F (Find). Type in Holder. Look at the 8-10 threads in the last couple of days that relate to Holder.

It aint hard.

So when you see that what you are wanting to post has been posted - don’t dupe it, mmm-kay?

First, your thread got deleted. You do know this reply you just posted (post 19) is going to get deleted too, right?

Instead of going off in a rant, why not be nice and ask what you did (are doing) wrong?

If you get a thread pulled, a nice private request to the mod asking why will get you a nice answer. Acting like you are now, throwing a fit in public, will get you nothing and a possible time out or even a zot if you have acted this way before. I've seen it happen over and over.

Your ego should be strong enough to bear the removal of a thread without cracking up.

I will also say I wouldn't cross a mod unless I had on lead underwear. To mods: I love all of you whatever type of creatures you are. :o)

Marcella, your advise is very polite and well taken; however, in my particular case this has happened more than once and again without any diplomatic email to me. Well, once they (the faceless ‘they’) sent me a private note to tell me what happened then gave me a two day non-paid leave.

At my age and experience it’s long past time for those like me to be treated like sophomoric college students. I was a professor and know from decades of experience there’s a right way and wrong way to ‘enforce’ rules, even though they may be groundless.

Perhaps Conservative old history professors should indeed refrain from posting and contributing to on a site like this. And perhaps I have nothing more to contribute other than writing historical novels and pieces for magazines and book publishers which I do. I am, therefore, out of my league here and being much older than most of you here have developed over the decades a thinner skin when it comes to faceless criticism. However, I have the hide of a father gorilla when it comes to roaring and railing against the consistent sins of the evil left that threatens our very existence.

I do wonder how many more FReepers there are that are like me in that they’re older, more studious than many and need a place where their work will be read and appreciated and what they see and believe important, one way or the other, I must now admidt that’s where I belong.

So I say, Zot me, but I will get back the last payment I made towards running Free Republic.

The one thing that drew and kept me here was that John Robinson has exactly the same slant that I have on what’s happening to America.

I bid you all a very fond adieu

That’s right up there with demanding prison demographics should be more balanced black & white. Which ever kid causes the problem should be the kid that gets slammed. To back off in blacks, thus increasing on whites is racist I think.

“I do wonder how many more FReepers there are that are like me in that they’re older, more studious than many and need a place where their work will be read and appreciated...”

I am older than almost everyone on this board. Either you are young enough to be my child or you could be my brother. I am 80 and have been a member here since 2000. I write prepper articles on another website and those are well received, and my posts on FR seem to be well taken.

I'm old and maybe you are that old, but that doesn't mean we have lost our mental capacity to research and learn, adding to our mental store of information we have gathered through all our years. If you were a professor with a Ph.D., then our education level is the same.

I hope you won't leave, but instead, join me as one of the oldest here.

After all these year, our agitating against it would be fruitless, unfortunately the way this works is very akin to the central socialist government.

John Robertson is indeed a conservative man, but those he’s selected are another bitter case.

When bloggers copy copyrighted material to their blogs then they or others post excerpts of it here with links back to the blog rather than the real source, we’re going to pull it whenever we see it. Don’t like it, post it elsewhere. Btw, your advice for us is wasted. We’re stuck in our old ways and are beyond your help.

Jim:

you're stuck in your neo-ways, how about those of us who are so shoved into their old ways due to our oldness that we can never change? Most of us can see further behind our backs than apparent even you can! That's where our nation's history is.

I say then, get rid of us and only allow those neo-conservatives space on your website.

I'll miss you, but will never see the room for clumsy attempts at getting at the roots of what this nation should be all about.

Best wishes always.

Go ahead and have me zotted (as they say) at this point I don't care.

It’s incredibly easy to avoid having posts pulled by the moderators. Number one of which is to simply follow the guidelines. Those who do not wish to cooperate with us in our endeavors might as well post elsewhere. I’ll be the first to admit FR is not for everyone.

So nice to realize that I won’t be missed because, apparently, you have enough disciples to carry this on.

I, Sir, am a true right-wing Conservative who would, if power permitted it, plow all the neos and liberals under the share!

I’m also, under many names, one who has given much to keep FR going. You won’t know this for a short while, but I have been contributing for quite a few years. Your derogating comments to me have proven that I am wrong.

I believed that ALL FReepers were unique and valuable. WE’re not.

I don’t even know what that last sentence means. I do know, that although we’ve never met yet, I have held you in highest esteem as you did, indeed, have the guts to begin this worthy website.

And, incidentally, I haven’t hurled any insults at anyone at this juncture.

The only solace I can take from this afternoon’s set-to is that you referred to me as ‘pal’.

A simple freepmail could have cleared this up with little or no fuss. FR takes copyright concerns seriously and errors on the side of caution in that regard.

Well, it probably was at least a clue hurled at the ‘moderators’ that they are entirely too dictatorial when it comes to someone who believes that what they’re posting is REAL and Proper.

As the record will show I was placed on leave, as some are today in the U. S. Army, for disciplinary action. The reason for this still escapes me.

I commented then that the thousands of posters and contributors to this website has no clue as to who you faceless umpires are.

A simple freepmail is never forthcoming as I , for one, continues to puzzle about what the removal was all about!

I think knowing the moderators here would be a great step forward, but then I will probably not be here to see any improvements.

Here we are, saddled with the most evil government in the history of civilization and we’re mucking about with picayune crap of censorship.
