Could you make it where the tag line will accept more words, please? I couldn't fit "religion" or "marital status" in there.

I have 29 entries to this vanity post, "Way Too Many Vanities [Updated]" on my "My Comments" page. Could you do something about that? It's cluttering up my screen.

Do the AdminModerators split the night shift, or does one of you always get stuck with that? Inquiring minds want to know...

I thought Nita Nupress died and went to heaven.

I received a certified letter from the IRS today and was preparing to write a vanity post about it, but it would fall on deaf ears.

What's the deal with askel5 lately, the woman of my dreams?

This is the 'general' way it works, but it does change. There are a coule AM's that usually work the graveyard shift. It fits their schedule. A couple of us are early birds, and some start after work. This isn't a set schedule, but it's the 'foundation'. You have to remember, we are all volunteers, and as such, our schedules are ours. We try to let everyone know if we can't be here, or our times are changing. Overall we have it covered 24/7/365.

That's amazing if you think about it. Flip-flopping like that would drive me crazy.
Come to think of it, how do I know I'm still talking to the same person now?

You're not the same AM who started this thread earlier tonight, are you? Your personality just changed. Which AM are you?  And just how many of you are there?

Dog Gone, if you're going to post that nipple thread, you'd better hurry up. I don't know how much longer I can hold the AM's attention.

Vanities??? I enjoy the vanities, makes the FR feel more like home. Especially enjoy the conversations with folks from all over, much better than an episode of cops.

"What are zots?"

Behold: One of the funniest ZOT threads I have ever read. Free Republic's version of "Shock and Awe" to let the leftists, the socialists, the commies, the Dem lurkers and other assorted malcontents and social misfits know they may covertly breach the walls, but only for a few seconds.

ZOT!!!

Then the fireworks start when the FR muscle shows up.

Behold ... and tremble ....

"You sound like a very well grounded individual." [From the thread]

Ohhh, what fun!

I remember what happened now. I posted this totally legitimate story from Fox News about women who were using foam rubber nipples under their blouses, and over their bras, as a fashion accessory.

Apparently, this tricks men, as well as Admin Moderators, into thinking that the women have a banana in their pocket, so to speak.

I thought this was a fascinating insight into America, and one worthy of much discussion by conservative intellectuals here at Free Republic, but it lasted about 45 seconds before it was yanked.

Pity.

I am the AM who started this thread, and the one you've been talking too. But, we sometimes get silly. We will always try to the best of are ability to anwer any questions freepers asked of us. Just remember, if you have a question, freepmail us. The fastest way to reach us is to use the 'report abuse' link located on any thread. Leave us your name, and/or thread informaino, if you expect a reply, the mod's can not see who made anonymous abuse reports. With that, good night freepers.

This all occurred before Admin Moderators were a twinkle in JimRob's eye. It was a goofy story and it certainly wasn't worth fighting for.

Now, if you want to discuss an outrage, my vanity Why do dogs cheat on their masters? was yanked after about 15 seconds. And it already had about 15 replies.

Too bad the General Interest forum didn't exist back then.

"So, what you're suggesting is, instead of deleting a thread, we should lock it so you can find the original faster."

No, what I'm suggesting is, in unordinary times (which we are certainly in), you just let things roll along as they happen.

I realize you have a very tough job, but please realize that the majority of FR users, myself included, don't try to "find" threads; we take em' as they come, and speaking for myself, I hate clicking on a post and finding it removed. It's wartime; I want to get the news uploaded as quickly as possible, and I have been frequently stymied in the attempt.

Look, just use your own discretion; if the repost is regarding some irrelevant minutae, then fry it. But if it's an article which may have a prior posting (of hundreds of replies), let it go so that we (I) may reply without adding to the general higgledy piggledy of the original.

Thanks in advance and thanks for your kind personal response.

The only question I have is why nobody goes to the Chat Forum. I have only very very rarely seen a thread bumped from News to Chat that hasn't died an instant death. The only threads that seem to live in Chat are the "official" daily threads there. Other than that, it's a ghetto.

BTW, this thread was posted Saturday at 8 pm. I didn't see it - and would NEVER have seen it - until just now, 10 am Monday, and that's only because it was bumped to the top of the Breaking News category.

Someone (::coughjohncough::) needs to come up with a way for Mods to literally ping EVERYONE when necessary, or force certain threads to stay at the top of a given category for a specific length of time ... or at the very least put a big banner across the top of each screen like during Freepathons for several days with a big giant link to such threads.
