Free Republic is Drowning in Vanity Postings--Please Stop (Mod note--we concur)
Wednesday, November 5, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 11/05/2008 8:11:28 PM PST by kristinn

Enough already. Please.

Vanities used to be well thought out, researched and/or funny and somewhat rare. Now the vanities consist of whatever crap pops in someone's head and they are drowning out whatever news is being posted.

I'm not the forum police, but please add you're rant, joke or pearl of wisdom to an ongoing thread.

I got a lot of grief when I posted to a vanity asking that they be stopped.

Vanity of Vanities, All is Vanity.

(I agree in principle, but I think we’re all just too drunk to care right now.)

I was told by The Highest Authority, not to protest vanities.

You would be wise to do the same.

Thanks kristinn. It had to be said. Also, there used to be an informational thread for new posters that would be posted every once in a while that would probably be useful about now.

You expect any different? We no longer have the house, senate, and the presidency. To a marxist no less. People here are angry. In a matter of weeks, the Republicans (if they care about this country) will fire up the filibuster pen and fight these jokers all the way until we retake them. For now though, let them vent. The vanities will fade in time.

It would have been perfect if you would have put up a link so we could Digg it.

Maybe we can take these vanities and make a “bonfire of the vanities” out of them. That way we can keep warm after obama bankrupts the coal industry.

Probably some new twist on blog pimping. It was too determined for money not to be involved.

I agree with you, Kristinn.

Though I haven't been too critical because it's understandable for people to want to "vent" at a time like this.

It reached the point of imbecility (is that even a word) when I came across a bizarre vanity post from someone who insisted that George W. Bush could rescue his legacy by declassifying all U.S. government files related to UFOs.

Good heavens.

It's the day after the worst election ever. It's just people letting off steam. We will go back to normal in a few days, unless Obama's civilian army shuts this place down.

You know, I think we can all use a humor break. This is one of them.

Palin's fault.

According to an unnamed source from the McCain campaign.

It will probably settle down in the couple of days. Many people here are emotional right now on many levels and need to let it out.

Of course this evening it’s gotten humorous, if not childish, which I must admit I have participated in.

I think the “What If McCain Would Have Picked(humorous name)” makes for a fun game. People should keep it in one thread though.
