I apologize for nothing.

I said what I meant, meant what I said, and really have a problem with the discretion and judgment of BADJOE in throwing his little tantrum, and of watching an effective vehicle for activists who really want to do something regress to being a bulletin board for endless rants by keyboard bound, politically irrelevant fringe voters (with an occasional tinfoil bent).

Sorry to wreck the lovefest.

I applaud BADJOE standing up for most of the Freepers who have not been drinking the Kool Aid and refused to become cult members. There would be no improvement in anything if it were left to bootlickers like you OPH. But then you would do anything to get a seat at the top table and like the scum who killed Becket you would be there first to rid your liege lord of this meddlesome Freeper.

But do not worry you will be rewarded, you are Jim's obvious pick to be an observer along with a few other randomly picked sycophants. Perhaps, I do you an injustice, with such dog like devotion to you master you could even be a moderator and have some real power you sniveling twit.

. I must admit that it requires exceptional talent for anyone to become such a pathetic disgrace to your profession but you sir have succeeded .

Are you capable of expressing your thoughts without the use of invectives, pejoratives and personal attacks?

YOU are exhibiting EXACTLY what BADJOE and Jim-Rob want to END! Damn........go back AND READ THEIR POSTS!

I'm sure OPH is off somewhere crying right now because he has been so unfortunate as to have displeased you. Your opinion means so much, you see.

I wish that I had thousands of dollars to give FR - it has educated me, it has brought me friends from all over the country whom I love dearly and on days when I have been housebound it has been my friend. There are other sites to visit, but I always come back to this one to check the lastest. I am so happy that you and Jim resolved this. Hugs to you and Jim but most of all to Willa and Sheila who love and support you both (and put up with you to cantankerous luvs).

If they wanted to end it they should not have sent their surrogate in the form of OPH to slam Badjoe on his plea for reconciliation . OPH is not just a ordinary Freeper his words carry more weight than that.

I used to be one of those who sent them out in gobs, mailed the Wednesday before Thanksgiving - all so people could get them when thy open their mail on Friday after Thanksgiving. I know, it is cruel, but somehow, i loved the thought of people opening them and going "crap, now I gotta get cards. Plus, he beat me."

We stopped sending out Christmas cards a few years back when our cards hit the recipient's mailboxes around Valentine's Day. I figured they'd think that we sent them out EXTRA early.

Who is 'they' that SENT OPH?

Isn't OPH capable of discussing his comment with BADJOE directly?

Did your personal attack of OPH advance your point? Or did it just look like more mud-slinging and thus, was discounted by those of us who are sick and tired of the personal attacks?

I didn't see OPH attack BADJOE. OPH made a statement, didn't he?

Does your attack of OPH meet BADJOE'S request of YOU...and *I*...and ALL FREEPERS?

"To the Freepers: You are the most important of all. Without you there is no FR. I would like to see you all prick your finger and write in blood that you will argue all you want to without calling another Freeper a dumb Mofo, etc. If you find yourself in the position of not being able to carry the day in your discussion, or if another Freeper gets close to anger, just go away for a little while and come back to fight later. If you do this moderating will become unnecessary."

Just a few questions for YOU to ponder, ac. Perhaps if WE.......YOU and *I* and ALL Freepers start self-moderating....this can end. No?

Of course not, why would you think that? You know how rough and tumble these threads can be. I really love the pictures of the Carribean harbours and would like to have one from you at Christmas time.

I am all for reconciliation as I am sure you are now.

I tried to tell them that the Admin Moderators were all Mexicans, maybe even illegal, but nobody believed me. Of course, that's probably how it's supposed to work.

Ya know, BADJOE, we're all family. All the cross names and all the keyboard cowboys in the world doesn't remove the fact that anyone here in good style is here for the same purposes, and God help the poor bastard who picks a fight with a fellow FReeper. We are not a bunch of tough guys and gals, but our skin is a bit thicker than most, although we do have spirit, as that is the reason we are all here. I'd never worry about FR going away, as a few key people this site is not. Besides, I love the bar fights, it keeps things from being dull, sometimes.

The moderator issue is a big one. Without full freedom of speech and expression, minus the obvious public issues such as cussing, FR would be no more.

We are what we are because of how we communicate not becuase of how we regulate.

If LBJ said it at all, he was quoting Gen. William T. Sherman. It's a Sherman quote.

You know the people on the board and they know you. Your sentiments about BADJOE match theirs. On the other threads you strove mightly to show your loyalty for policies that were not in the best interests of

The uproar and band aid modifications of which, proves that there was something amiss. If all freepers were like you there would still be a festering sore on this site.

Why would you therefore refuse a reconciliation offer by BADJOE who has helped to make this site a better place for you and all of us.

ACTION, you must take action!
The words, a lot of times, just don't get through to people.

(just a little unspoken, read between the lines, tip from the FRIVA conference)
