"I'm not sure if it is a valuable use of one's time to chronicle the posts on FR..."

LOL...he does appear to have a lotta free time on his hands. If you think about it, it is sorta flattering, though, even if his comments appear to be overwhelmingly negative. The very fact that the LPers lurk over here to obtain material just shows how influential FR.com has become.

FReegards...MUD

I was just happily reading the retort, er,ummm, I mean replies and came to yours with that picture of the poor bald cat, rotfl - Oh, lordy Bill, the look on that cat's face.

My sides hurt from laughting. Oh my!

Well, I can't remember the exact sequence of events, but Todd wanted to do a show and Bob gave him a chance. It didn't really work out and that was that.

I don't know how long after that he left FR.

So then, I misunderstood Bob's post? He is no longer on RFR? Okay, then it makes since. Thanks.

No, RFR is off the air, although Todd only did two shows for us while we were webcasting both were in the early stage of development.

RFR will be back. It will be a monthly show hosted by Doug from Upland.

Nice idea, this civility thing. Sincerely hope it takes.

I never take anything personally around here, other than the fact that some dismiss whatever I say just because I supported John McCain four years ago.

It's that unthinking, knee-jerk "This person's opinion is worthless because (fill in blank here)", totally avoiding debate on the merits of the opinion itself kind of mentality that bugs the hell out of me, but unfortunately such narrow-mindedness is pretty pervasive here (e.g., "liberal" source/you supported so-and-so, and therefore your opinion is worthless/you're a new member and, therefore, are prejudged to be a disruptor, et cetera) and I doubt it'll change anytime soon.

I can hum the Barney theme song each time I post, if that helps. :)

"I think the 'troll hunters' are a bit quick to jump on new people too."

Me too. I have a very good conservative Republican friend at work that would love to join and post but I'm afraid for him to post because of the "troll" accusations going around right now.

I don't think I've offended anybody because I'm afraid to post much but if I have I'm sorry. :-)

I must admit Tonkin and Bob J that this does merit reflection for postings and replies.

We all get a little excited and passionate sometimes and even lash out and with the exception of legitimate DU Trolls (soon destroyed by the mighty ZZZOT or the Viking Kitties) we are like bothers and sisters battling each other. We may get angry and say things that we regret but so far, perhaps I've been lucky but, it has been my experience that private reply apologies are mutually tendered and accepted.

I'll watch myself a little more closely.

SR since 12/28/02

Honestly,
I've not really noticed a big change...and I've hung around since the Clinton impeachement.

Yes, there is an "ebb and flow" of rhetorical and pointed speech...but I've
not seen any significant changes over time...except for the
ZOT-ing of some trolls.

I post from a firehouse. On a slow Newsmax night cinFLA and Quaker were discussing underwear. Several of us were crowded around the monitor lurking. It was hilarious!

When Newsmax closed the forum, many came over to FreeRepublic. They were open liberals at Newsmax, but had to go in the closet to post here.

Oh...Quaker wears bikini panties but cinFLA prefers thongs.

My recollection is that it was a line made by "Squiggy", on the Laverne & Shirley sitcom. It always stuck with me because...well, it just sounds so stupid (and it was funny at the time).

Maybe I misread the thread, but wasn't the point of the thread that we stop the sniping and infighting? If so, why are you to circling each other and sniping at each other?

I'll have to go back and read the thread again and see if I missed something.

I flame fast, and forget even faster. If someone is a wolf in sheep's clothing inviting me to dinner, I fire up the barbecue and try for wolf burgers.

I tend to ridicule liberals because they are so darn funny in a touchy feely sort of brainlessness, and when a poster that is liberal sticks around I tend to become more tolerant as they are showing guts and a willingness to learn. But with all the slander and run types I tend to be quick on the trigger to at least get a shot in before they fade into a new identity.

But I too see that flaming is addicting and am trying to cut back on my smoking...

A good fight once in awhile is healthy....that is, if the one on the receiving end doesn't immediately run to Admin. crying that they were "personally attacked"!

I would refer to the "alley" for disputes in the future since we have so many thin-skinned FReepers joining us.
