Jim has said that more than numerous times, and ignores any other useful advice.

This site should have made him a millionaire, and none of us here would have felt anything wrong about that. (We LIKE capitalism here)

No one would have objected to some advertising. Drudge report does it in a very unobtrusive way.

But to go contstantly begging for money is not a working model.

I would GLAD pay for ‘membership’ if I was forced to, and there should be some recognition that you are a contributor. Maybe a gold, silver or bronze star next to your name indication your level of sponsorship.

And nothing has changed for a decade. Why does hardware crash so much when he has over a $300,000 a year budget? I could run this site on one-forth of that.

And there is still no ‘like’ button. We can preach to each other all day long, but there is no way to share the nuggets we find of good stuff with the rest of the world. That would not only be EASY these days, but it would generate new traffic to the site and possible more income.

TAKE AN ADVERTSIEMENT OR TWO, it won’t kill you, Jim.

Salon.com and other idiot libtard sites have millions of dollars of funding. why don’t you? after 20 years this site should be way more important and more well known then those.

The only thing I would NOT like was if he cashed in his chips and sold it- THEN I would not trust the content anymore.

Why no contact The Blaze and try to set up a partnership or something? Show us you learned a thing or two about business here.

Please feel free to proceed with that plan at any time. We will be watching for your site. Thanks.

The Boss has said repeatedly that FR is beholden to no one. We owe no one ANYTHING and no one OWNS us OR our content.

Free Republic is unique. It is not Drudge. It is not Facebook. It IS FR!

No Way!

No thanks on the advertising, I have enough problems and enough people trying to control our content and what we may or may not post as it is. But if you seriously think you can run a site like FR for less, please have at it. Others have claimed the same thing and some have tried, but haven’t seen a whole lot of success yet. At least not with the undercapitalized attempts. Huffington made a go of it after raising millions.

A ‘share’ button would be great for threads and posts. There are so many gems of conservative articulation on this site but they are often buried in long threads. The low info voters don’t have the attention span to find them. The time is long overdue for a conservative cultural offensive, and using all means of technology needs to be part of it.
