Moderators: What are the rules for posting? (Vanity)
freerepublic.com ^ | 7/15/2009 | ME

Posted on 07/15/2009 6:23:03 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

I post many items here, from business to politics and evrything in between, and sometimes entertainment as a nice distraction from all of the corrupt politicians. Recently I tried to post an article about a supermodel who is pregnant. I thought it was a mistake after it was pulled the first time, but it was pulled a second.

What is so objectionable to this news item? And is there a place we can look for a set of rules, as I have seen much worse than this posted int he past.

I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve never had an article pulled, posted in the wrong category or been spanked by a mod.

1) Do what they want.

2) Don’t do what they don’t want.

Well, if this were DU, the post would have pulled for having a pregnancy, not an abortion....

I was spanked by a mod.

She wore heels.

It was hot.

Simple answer: You didn’t post it into breaking news with a “Must Read” tag.

How about FReepmailing the mods and asking instead of posting a vanity about it?

Red,
I’m NOT a moderator BUT I suspect you’ll hear that — especially now — FR is devoted to exposing — and offering solutions for — the rapid-fire abuses of the Constitution by the gang of Chicago thugs who have hijacked the government here.

For pure fun and entertainment, there’s always newspapers, network TV and MSNBC.

I’ve had several business articles pulled recently. One was from Bloomberg- I tried to post directly from it but got the ‘prohibited’ message, so I just posted a link to the article and it got pulled.

What, we’re to never ever reference Bloomberg here in any way?

Then, I tried to post a Thomas Woods article that was prohibited because it was from lewrockwell.com. That was prohibited too.

Let’s get a grip. This is just getting stupid.

I guess it all depends on where you posted your story. or maybe you caught one of the mods on a bad day. Hard to say what the reason was.

I’ve posted a few stories somewhat like yours and haven’t had one yanked. Maybe I’ve just been lucky with that.

Here’s what I’d do...

I always think about where it’d be best to place the story. If I were posting a story like yours, I’d place it in General/Chat. usually, that does the trick for me.

Oh REALLY?

They have more celebrity gossip than the Enquirer and that idiotic "naughty librarian" sex column writer who posts quasi-serious articles about multiple orgasms and "sexting".

You really have to wade through thigh-deep sewage to find the real news on Foxnews.com

I'm surprised that there was no comment when the thread was pulled. Very often, there is.

Still, with all that is going on here, imho, it is possible that the subject matter was deemed inappropriate or frivolous.

This forum is being corrupted with too many nonpolitical discussions. Some variations and fun threads are okay but they have really increased including vanity threads. I’d like to see a $5.00 charge for each vanity.

I think the 1st was simply “no thanks”.

When I posted it a second time (as I thought it had been pulled by mistake) it was “please do not post pulled info”
