***Extreme Vanity***

Posted on 12/22/2019 8:04:44 AM PST by frogjerk

Just got a thread pulled and the reason the moderator stated was "the usual". The posting was from The NY Post today about a woman who was having a seizure and got mauled to death by the family dog. Not sure why this isn't news worthy or has to be censured. I made no comment just posted the artcle. Has FREERepublic also caught the snowflake disease where we cannot discuss bona fide news in a respectful manner so the conversation needs to be shutdown? I respect Free Republic is fully within its rights to shutdown or reject a posting for any reason but is this really how this should have been dealt with?

Sorry, but it's my job:

Shutdown = noun

Shut down = verb

Maybe they think that being killed by your pet is not a suitable topic for the holidays. I noticed on the Daily Mail that yesterday there were no animal stories. Animal stories generally bring out a lot of emotion.

Apparently they have had a change of heart. After a couple of hours delay they reinstated that thread.( two or three threads below this one).

further evidence we’re witnessing the slow-slow quick death of Free Republic. FR offered a fresh perspective on American news in the 1990’s and 2000’s, and an abundance of articulate, well written conservative posters. Today it’s become a pit stop for self-promoting bloggers, and the remaining handful of old timers (moderators) who can’t grasp what’s happening among the right side of news portal websites. The Liberty Daily, Citizen Free Press, and Dan Bongino seem to be attracting lots of newer, younger supporters to their sites, but we see nothing like that at FR. The original posters frustration is just one cause of this, and asking the fewer and fewer that still come here for 90 thousand in donations every 90 days is another.
