It's Compliment Weekend at FR!
None | 6/21/02 | AGYG

Posted on 06/21/2002 9:18:04 AM PDT by anniegetyourgun

Given the carping and nasty nature of FR as of late, I thought it might be a good time to see the more civil and gracious side of participants. Here is a thread for just that purpose – to edify, encourage, and thank.

Ever wanted to thank that unsung FR hero? Agree or disagree, why not tell JohnHuang2 or Registered how much you appreciate their skills. And can you imagine the many hours Alamo-Girl puts into her work? Perhaps you appreciate how well the folks over at Word For The Day wield their words. Or maybe you just want to tell WIMom and her gang that you’re sorry for all your unkind words about the recent Freepathon ads, and thank her for all her hard work on that. Maybe you are an FR Radio fan. Well, you get the idea.

What this thread is NOT for: complaints against the management, flaming those you disagree with, bashing the current administration, leaving your opus, whinning about someone being banned, criticizing FR spelling, grammar, or sentence structure, calling out newbies (unless they are disrupting this thread, of course), shilling for your candidacy, carping about a particular regular thread. Well, you get the idea.

Freep on…..

P.S. No, I’m not fishing for compliments. I’ve already been called every name in the book here on FR, and “toothless hag” is still my personal favorite.

It’s tough for AGYG to put away blazing guns and go with roses, but I thought I would start.

I’d like to thank RjayneJ for all the behind the scenes work – thanks for what you do, without much recognition.

I also want to tell Kristinn and all the D.C. Freepers that we are all so proud of your diligent activism. You do incredible work in the nation’s capital.

And Bille & SnowBunny put on a very professional and inviting USO Canteen. That work is so important during this time. Thank you for your regular rememberance and comfort to those who daily defend our liberty and way of life.

Lastly, thank you to DittoJed2, Faith, and so many others who are so faithful to fulfill the biblical mandate to pray for those in authority – particularly the POTUS.

All I can say is you folks are the reason I stay. And that's as mushy as I'm going to get today.

What a nice thread. My compliments. ;^)

As to "the “toothless hag” is still my personal favorite", it reminds me of one of my favs from a buddy at school. Commenting on someone much like Maddie Albright, he said, "that old battle axe doesn't have a smart bone in her toothless head." So quaint...

I appreciate the vast majority of the posters who refrain from turning every disagreement into a flame war and don't follow the example of those who do.

Great idea for a thread! Gosh, where to begin?

summer, for all her detailed, thoroughly researched, thoughtful hard work in ensuring that we here in Florida re-elect Jeb Bush for governor.

Travis McGee and harpseal for their educated and educational posts on things military and governmental, Constitutional and against the ever-growing police state that more and more of the American sheeple mindless embrace.

Registered for all those great comments and excellent grafix, wether they make the Bush-bots happy or not.

dead for his laconic and dead-on commentary. I get more laughs from his posts than everyone else combined, I think.

There are so many others. JulieRNR21, Squantos, noumenon, Myrddin, archy, Snow Bunny, etc.! It's good to be counted among you all.

This is THE most wonderful place. I'm so glad I found it. In my time here I've seen somebody named "Registered" who's talent is phenomenal; I've seen the members of this place sending in their hard-earned dollars to keep it running; the educational benefits are mind-boggling and many posters are not shy about sharing their expertise with others; and the savvy media watchdogs here! What a wonder this FreeRepublic.com is! THANK YOU EVERYONE!

You two, among many others, stand out as individuals who are unwilling to be unthinking bootlickers and mindless GOP cheerleaders. If only the GOP had more of you fellas this country would be alot better off! Bravo!

I would like to commend the spirit that threads like The New Hobbit Hole brings to FR. They allow us to get to know one another on a personal level. That way when we are out in the trenches and find one of our compatriots from a social thread on the other side of the argument we are not so quick to pull the trigger on our flamethrowers. That even goes for The Neverending Story. Thanks to everyone who participates on that thread. We have our theological differences, but I can say without reserve that I also consider you guys my FRiends.

Re your post #22 - Thank you so much, Joe. I am very honored you would think of me here! BTW, I must compliment you and everyone else who posts to my threads, for without such participation, I would never learn as much and I might as well not post at all. :)

I appreciate those who can disagree with others without resorting to calling other good freepers bootlickers and cheerleaders.

John Huang 2 IS THE FACE OF FR TO ME. The D.C. FREEPERS made me so proud. The CA FREEPERS are the ONLY reason why Condit did not win the primary. Snow Bunny keeps us reminded of the tremendous sacrifice our military makes in the face of unrelenting danger. And all those who respond with humor and grace in the face of sometimes ugly ugly comments........
