When did Jim sell you Free Republic? What’d that run you?
There are certain behaviors that are expected here for no-trolls, one is pinging people that you are attacking, and another is to not cross threads and drag threads from one to another.
They don’t want FR to degenerate into a bunch of never ending personal grudges and old ladies making personal attacks that continue and hijack thread after thread.
Who would want such a thing, and who is so childish, that they would do such behavior? This is a political forum for adults.
