This is for posters who don't want to view the chat, religion or any other forums besides the news forum.

You have the option to view all topics or only one topic. In the sidebar on the right, look for "Browse by Forum". You have two options, "Everything" or you can choose only one topic to view as your default setting. Most who want to view only one forum choose news.

Currently these are your only two options. Most posters choose all because they know how to sort through the comments that they want to read.

It would be nice to ignore certain forums. I understand that it might not be an easy change but I'm a patient man.

In the meantime, use this URL for News Forum only:

http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/news-forum/index?tab=comments

I’ve set this to be my browser’s Homepage. No worries.

Also, if you don’t like the default typeface/font (Times Roman), you can change it permanently in your browser Option or Tools area.

On Firefox, go to Tools -> Options -> Content -> Fonts&Colors. Choose Ariel if you like smoother letters

On IE, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> General (Appearance, at the bottom) -> Fonts. Choose Ariel for your Webpage Font on the left if you like smoother letters.

I agree also.

I am tempted to start a voodoo thread under the religion stuff. Any takers?

I wish you well with your lobbying effort.

(I would say I'm praying for you, but not everyone would get the joke).

Well rounded freepers have to keep with what’s going on around them. New scientific discoveries, etc. I was startled to learn that there were dinosaurs less than 6,000 years ago! You realize that one of the tropic isles could harbor T-rex....

parsy, the incredulous

It would be nice to have a sidebar section for LIVE threads, restricted to the current day.

Sometimes LIVE threads get posted by several posters.
Sometimes they get moved to other sections.
Sometimes they get lost.

Many times the viewers/readers are not even aware that a topic/event may have a LIVE thread up.

That could cut down on multiple LIVE threads, maybe.

I would like to see a a size limit on what appears in a post. Way too many long posts that appear multiple times. Very aggravating to scroll through.

Well I do seem to remember a documentary about some natives of an island that worshipped a giant gorilla. I think it was back in the 30s.

The gorilla worshipped blondes.
