Hopefully the above will help answer your questions.
NOTE: This is the final draft that I will post on the forum this year (further updates will be placed on my profile page). This, however, does NOT mean you still can't make suggestions for inclusion. Keep in mind, suggestions should be fairly unique to FreeRepublic and have lasting value.
Thanks to all who have contributed and, of course, to Jim Robinson for the venue to post all these witty (and not so witty) remarks and images.
You might want to read through this.
RACIST: Anyone criticizing a liberal politician.
um, we use this one too....YOMANK= You Owe Me A New Keyboard.
As this site is publicly searchable by Yahoo or Google, posting in the clear like this is very dangerous.
Shouldn’t there be a secret handshake, or something, required to have access to it? /lol
Since I’m still a n00b, let me axe you this; Have you been keeping this up all of these years? That’s a tremendous amount of work you’ve done.
No. Other FReepres developed this around 2004 and then it sat without any updates until 2006, when yours truly unwittingly opened a can of worms when I put up a post asking for folks to define some FR terminology. I quickly regretted posting the question as the post took off (see my reaction here).
This is the third time I've tried to update and clarify the lexicon but credit, ultimately, goes to all FReepers who've helped with suggestions and definitions.
“yours truly unwittingly opened a can of worms when I put up a post asking for folks to define some FR terminology”
That must have been fun. I’m off to read that thread now. LOL
I believe Risky Schemer and Bugbear were the originators of the first Lexicon.
Holy Carp! I’ll change that immediately.
If it's OK, I'm going to credit you and Risky Schemer at the top of the Lexicon.
A revised and condensed version of The Lexicon of FreeRepublic, culled from Lexicon of FreeRepublic - 4th Edition and Freeper Lingo Thread (the history and meening of 'Freepisms' including pictures). Thanks to the many Freepers who contributed, especially Bugbear and Risky Schemer, the originators of the first lexicon! (see also The 2007 FreeRepublic Lexicon)
Thanks for posting, Batter!
I think you just set your secret decoder ring to "all your base are belong to us" and wait for Kenneth to send the frequency.
Clinton’s alias, sinkEmperor, seems to be gradually catching on ... sink for short.
