DID I ASK TO BE ON YOUR PING LIST?
vanity | December 20, 2002 | southernnorthcarolina

Posted on 12/20/2002 3:57:53 PM PST by southernnorthcarolina

Apologies for the vanity post. But I want to rant a bit.

In the past few months, ping lists have proliferated to the point of annoyance. And it is especially irksome to find oneself on a list without having requested inclusion.

There's a word for this: .

Ponder this question, Chester: Did I ask to be on your #%&@ing ping list? No? Well, then. Draw the logical conclusion. If I wish to be on your ping list, rest assured you'll be the first to know. But while you wait with bated breath for my entreaty to be a party to your wisdom, I'll thank you not to make the assumption that I consider your blog indispensable.

Personally, I'd like to see pinging stopped entirely, via the placing of a limit on the number of people a post may be directed to -- preferably one, but no more than five, in my opinion. But failing that, it should at least be the case that unsolicited spam has no place on Free Republic.

I keep a LIVE THREAD ping list for people who want to discuss ongoing events, mostly in the daytime. I'd be glad to add you if you're serious. You don't have to lick a picture of Bush or anything to be on it. :-)

BTW, I'm sorry I'm evidently late answering this post. My MY COMMENTS page is FILLE TO CAPACITY with that spam TLBSHOW is posting to me. I almost missed it.

One pingy-dingy - Ha!

This whole thread overnight turned into one of the funniest ones, I think. I started reading late yesterday and resumed late today where I left off - what a hoot. And heck, I'm still not done reading...

Thank you, but I still think I am a victim somehow.

No, it's just that no one likes you.

Personally, I've yet to form an opinion one way or another...

"Maybe we should start having descriptors next to peoples names when they post. You know like "friendly", "grumpy", "don't ping", "assh#le". "

ROTFL! Kinda like keywords only referenced to poster instead of topic. That could be a riot.

The list has many on it that are no longer registered at FR. And many that never post. I'll start a new list, based on who says they want in this week.

I realize that this thread was pretty much exhausted a couple of days ago.

I just read it all myself this morning.

Personally, I love to be pinged. I think that is the entire pont of FR.com in the first place.

No offense, but who are these people that do not want to be pinged?

It does not compute from my perspective.

What are they doing here if they do not wish to be pinged?

I am nine years on line and I finally found a site worth supporting.

Stop pings? Huh? Are you all on drugs?


Ping Away.


Long Live the Ping!

we need an opt IN program...

There already is. Although I am on a lot of ping lists I still check the lists located here...as a matter of fact, until the appearant rise of the master-pingers, this was how I tracked down all info on listed/specific subjects.

Bump Lists

Works just fine for me. And if you don't want to be on someones list just request that you are taken off. Better to be solicited with info that may prove usefull, IMO, than to not receive any at all.

There are lists people keep and there are names picked up in the course of conversation on a particular thread.

I agree with you in terms of continuing lists.

In terms of who I might ping who's been involved in a discussion on a thread up to that point, then I would disagree. Once someone comments on a particular thread they are fair game whether you address your reply to 1, 2, 3 or more.
