“Moderating a large board like this cant be easy in any stretch of the imagination.”
From what I can tell, it’s more like beating yourself in the head with a 2x4 all day long. Lot’s of headaches.
First of all, I didn’t make any of the remarks you have above your line.
Secondly, I suggested a freeze for a few weeks because of the slowness and trouble we have had. Tonight is a whole new day of posting fast and having the pager stay on.
There were quite a few getting tired of the slowness and going to other sites so we were losing the words of good freepers. If someone had wanted to be in this fight they would have signed up a long time ago.
It was a mild suggestion for a problem, not an earth shattering wish. If the whole site crashed and burned then none of us would be here.
I’m off to bed now.
That’s OK. I didn’t bookmark it until your post, because I wasn’t doing that ‘thinking’ thing again when someone first notified me.
So, glad you did provide the link.
I was addressing both of you, and all readers in general.
I know we have had some slowness and last night I couldn’t even get to FR for hours and hours (I thought I was gonna die!)
But, on several threads I read that the staff was installing some new servers, to help with the upcoming load.
Might that be the reason for the downtime and problems, rather than some silly noobs?
I’ll ask this here:
Is it possible to put up a link at the top of the ‘Latest Posts” thread
referencing the thread or page with all of the copyright info?
As many times as I have saved it and bookmarked it, I always end up having to look (and look and look) for it.
(NOT blaming you, only my organizational issues)
I’ve had problems posting replies, etc. from Yahoo. I don’t seem to have so much trouble on my server, verizon, as I do on Yahoo.
I’ve been trying to make a donation through the Support FR link on the home page but can’t get through. Is it just because so many are making donations (I hope) or is there a problem with the link. I’ve not had any other page errors the last 2 days.
Of course!! We all knew the new servers were to be installed before the election, have talked of it numerous times. But meanwhile it was excruciating and newbies were joining like mad, adding to the load.
I spent much time going to Yahoo Free Republic to read.
Sorry about that. That system has been down since our crash the other day. John now has our three new servers physically installed at the data center and is in the process of working them into our system. He’ll be bringing the secure server and other broken systems back online as he finishes up bringing the new servers up to speed.
Thank you, sir. I will keep trying. I appreciate you.

An apt description I’d bet.
Good opportunity to get all the evolution threads into a trash bin somewhere... :)
As per my Freepmail, is FR hacked? I cannot log into FR by the normal link (times out). Can only access via the back doors I found on a cached copy of a FR post on site security listed on Yahoo:
Bookmark the direct IP addresses if the DNS listing gets hacked.
