I didn't realize FreeRepublic.com was a 'blogging' site....hmmmmmm.... ;)

It's not. It's a bulletin board.

More like usenet (netnews) was 10 - 20 years ago.

Bulletin boards have their strengths and weaknesses, just as blogs do.

Bulletin boards are more 'closed' or 'self-selected communities' than blogs.

Also a blog usually have one (or a few) person running it and making the primary post while everyone else comments on those. If Jim Robinson posted the articles and we commented on them FR would be a blog.
