We've had a lot of new folks join up recently. Welcome aboard, this thread is a gentle reminder of some basic posting guidelines. (And for some of you old timers as well) Please read the follow, and ask any questions. We will all try to help you out.
If it's a breaking news topic, check breaking news first, it's probably already posted.
To avoid duplicate posts, please search before posting. Use the published article title to prevent duplicates. The best method to search is to pick a key word or two from the title. If the article you are posting is, "Dan Rather Memo", start with 'Memo' for the key word. If it is a hot topic, you might want to use two or more keywords, in this case, try 'memo rather'. For an effective search, select 'match all words' and select 'order by post time'.
All non-sourced non-news threads are posted here. This doesnt mean your one thought is a thread by itself. Lately, we have been seeing articles posted that should be comments made on the main article. Your comment/vanity article will be pulled or moved to General/Chat. Vanities should be limited to the mission of Free Republic.

Yeah, I was lookking for it to try to get the "right" spelling, but couldn't find it, thanks.

1. How do you attach pictures, etc.? Cut, copy and paste commands don't seem to work when posting things.
2. What does "ZOT" and "LOL" mean? Is there a glossary out there somewhere?
Click on the admin mods name and you will find a history of zot (click on most peoples name and you can see their "about" page)
Fiddlstix has a great post for teching how to post pics, stand by.
If we were in Europe, that would be March 9, 2001. Thus the Admin Mod would have seniority. ;o)
