Yes, oddly enough, you’re still here.
what do you go by over at the fogbow?
You didn't read that Blade Bryan was the founder of the ultra leftist 0bama supporting site Fogbow? Or you think such a leftist operative should be free to play on FR?
The perception is that they are agents provocateur and not honest debating opponents. Repeating arguments which have been shot down over and over again is not the mark of an honest debater.
There are a few exceptions though. I think Mr. Rogers is not an Obot, I think he simply cannot distinguish his own emotional preference on the issue from what is actually true.
As for "making stuff up", I think this is less a case of people being intentionally misleading and more of a case that they are misinformed and then repeat that misinformation. It has happened to me once or twice. Once the facts are pointed out to me, I correct my miscomprehension.

The poor fellow didn’t realize that “free” means that only the Freep Official Truth is allowed, and is quickly banned. The usual Freep idiots do their victory dance for Konstitushanal Gummint. I’d feel dirty looking at FreeRepublic, almost like watching drunken derelicts paid to fight each other, or like making fun of mental hospital patients, if Freepers weren’t such a[$$]holes. > >
(Thank you, Mr. Robinson, for removing a world-class obot, via the zot received by BladeBryan.)
