So, three astronauts, that walked on the moon, write an article about their frustration with the path the Obama Administration is taking on future U.S. maned space programs, and we can’t link to it anywhere, talk about it, or nothing. What happened to the rights to freely assemble and discuss our grievances? This Country is looking more like Chicago every day!
Apparently, there are sources not listed that the forum software still requires excerpts from.
One that is not listed on the “official list”, but the forum forces excerpting: OneNewsNow.com (part of the American Family Association). While they sometimes have AP-sourced articles, FR seems to want to require ALL to be excerpted.
arstechnica.com is blocked but not listed!
Earlier today I posted an excerpt of an article I thought was excellent, but had the thread pulled because “Author is not welcome on FR”. How do I find out what authors are not welcome at FR?

Well, I don’t see why not.
Bump to the top
Create FreRepublic University.
***I proposed that several years ago.
Heres my modest proposal for education reform.
We have been discussing ways to fast track kids through high school to avoid the liberal agenda and other idiocies:
Proposal for the Free Republic High School Diploma.

Received a takedown request from the copyright/trademark holder. Please do not post the Maxine character to FR. Even as parodies. They respect our rights to free speech, but do not appreciate Maxine voicing our opinions.
If you spot a post of Maxine (examples: google/search/images/maxine ), please alert the moderators via abuse report so we can remove it.
Source is Blocked, article not posted
infowars.com material not wanted on FR.
The sister site Free Dominion in Canada is also undergoing lawfare attacks. They recently won a copyright decision. They have been sued or taken to “human rights tribunals” for six years with no end in sight, if they survive.
Please note that short articles from any of the sources on the list (that are not prohibited altogether) must be excerpted to 50% of content.This has always been the rule for excerpts.
Excerpts for long articles is 300 words or less.
Your comment in bold above appears nowhere in the original post by Jim. Instead of sticking it way down here where nobody will see it, why not add it to the original article?
Maybe Jim will see your post and do so.
Everyone who posts here at Free Republic should read this thread.
You have FReepmail.
At post time FR refused this site, that nothing from newswithviews would be posted. But no search on FR brought up any thing about it, and in this "helps" article you have not listed this Source.
Is there a reason that I might know, and be better warned? Thanks!
I did find the article on the author's own blog site, and did excerpt and posted from there. I hope have not done something wrong. I thought the content was of high value to FR readers, although the article was witten over 10 years ago. The link is:
What about WSJ blogs such as this one?
Do they have to excerpted too?
This is a great suggestion.
Do we know if Democatic Underground and other such liberal forums are facing a restricted list of similar scope?
I don’t think the New York Times has complained about excerpts.
Is The Foreigner allowed?
It seems to have several country outlets. Like this:
Soros tying knots with far left, again.
‘The ad is likely to cause serious offence to some viewers on the basis that it was sexist...’
All the best ads are like that.
Neither does VDH as far as I have noticed
I tried to post this blogger’s article
and received a message about newswithviews.com is blocked. I first checked the copyright list and didn’t see this site mentioned, and a google search of FR shows links to this site, so I thought it was OK.
Is there a different list of blocked sites I should have checked?
So...should we be thinking of just posting links on everything?
That would seem to be the safest way to go.
Could this get quarterly or bi-annual updates with a note in the title line?
Ha, ha. you said “fool proof”
Hi Jim & Mod,
Do we have a complete list of sites that are unwelcome on FR...such as InfoWars? If so, can I have the link. Thanks. I’m not able to find it, but I suspect it exists.
Bump for reference. No further comment.
On a related note: “Warner Todd Huston (aka Warren The Whiner) was Zotted by JimRob for being a egregious blog pimp.” - http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2972379/posts?page=16#16
Tuccille told me that antiwar.com never made any such request.
Just got a notice from the FReep mods about something I posted from Huston. Didn’t know about that, but I will be careful to steer clear of any of his stuff.
I just posted a very interesting article and link to a YouTube about an archery technique that was almost instantly pulled. Why? I see nothing about it that wold get it pulled. It had to do with historical methods of archery. . . and demonstrated the most amazing shooting with a bow and arrow I have ever seen, including the ability of the archer to hit and split an arrow aimed at him in mid flight using these technique. Is the source, wimp.com, one proscribed because of copyright but not programed with a warning?
It was pulled as a duplicate post: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3250196/posts
Thanks Jim. . . I appreciate it. . . Did not know it had been posted before. Thanks for all your hard work in making this the best place in the world for us conservatives. I will spread the word to those who were wondering what happened to the thread.
Good information to have - thanks. Bookmark for future.
Have Gannett papers changed from what is at the top (we can post title and link)? I tried to post from AZ Republic and was blocked.
Is the list at the top current and accurate?
The Onion has written a story on itself?
The Mercury News should be glad anybody is looking at them period.
I have a question about this line:
“All material from the Associated Press must be excerpted regardless of source (very brief excerpts).”
Can we still cite 300 word (or half article length for very short article)? Or is this line saying we should do less than that for AP?
Jim,I appreciate this forum and your kindness.
