Vanity Post on Vanity Posts, Duplicate Posts, Trash Posts, Commie Propaganda, etc., Vol V, No. 1
Free Republic | Jan 25, 2002 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 01/25/2002 9:38:23 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Way too many vanity threads lately. And way too much trash being posted. Please try to stay on topic (politics). Also, please do a search on a significant word from the title of your article before posting. This will reduce the number of duplicates. And, along these same lines, please use the original titles on your article posts. Do NOT edit the titles. Do NOT use "My Title" titles. This will also help to reduce the number of duplicates.

And, whatever else you do, please DO NOT post from DEMOCRATS UNDERGROUND (or any other such trashy un-American socialist hangout). Free Republic was intended to be a socialist free zone. We've gone to a heck of a lot of trouble to make it that way. Why in the world would you think we would be interested in having their trash posted here?

And QUIT trashing each other. You know who you are. Knock it off! Way too many flamewars and feuds going on. And, while I'm thinking about it, QUIT trashing our conservative candidates. If you want to criticize someone's position on some policy, have at it. But do not trash or smear the man. That would include Browne, Buchanan, Bush, Keyes, et al, or whomever else may be your favorite trashee (examples listed in alphabetical sequence). The idea is to get more conservatives elected, not to trash the ones you don't like. If you want to trash someone, make it a Democrat. Thank you.

And QUIT dredging up old communist propaganda to smear our conservatives. Sheesh! Whatever else you may think about our guys, they did not hijack airliners full of people and crash them into buildings. No, my friends, not even the dreaded CIA. Anyone who would believe (or even suspect) that crap is no FReeper. I've been pulling this crap whenever I see it and several people have been banned for continuing to post it. I do not want it on Free Republic. Any current FR poster who believes this leftist propaganda, please logoff immediately, send me your resignation via email, and I will delete your account.

Thanks,

Jim

What about those of us who vote Republican but feel it necessary to critique our leaders' performance and criticize when they make bonehead, watered-down-leftist decisions. Is there a place here for this kind of discussion/debate?

and I will delete your account.

What exactly does "delete your account" mean? Is one really deleted from every aspect of FR...such as profile page?

I am just curious, really.

Criticize all day long where criticism is due. But do not trash or smear the guy.

There sure has been a ton of "worst of" threads today, like worst meal, worst movie, worst drink.

I agree on all counts. I noticed the trigger was being pulled on numerous threads lately. They always caught my attention because of the subject matter or title. I find that there are many web sites like Rense or others to find this stuff and read it. They are of little use for debate since you either believe the stuff or you don't. Tempers get hot and the flames begin. Nothing is improved, and no knowledge is gained by that.

This site is advertised as a conservative political forum and not a rant site. Nor is it a place where anti establishment rhetoric should be spread.

Nicely put. My thought nearly exactly. (Of course, can we keep the Microsoft threads? They are entertaining!)

Have you thought of having some separate "chat" section where all the garbage and ramblings can be freely posted? Sometimes the news is really slow and it is nice to "chat" with other Freepers.

Uh, dude, I don't know where you are from, but where I am, the liberal elite is 'the establishment'.

Does that mean I can't spread anti-liberal rheotoric?

The vanity to news ratio is way out of whack. Thanks for posting this, Jim.

I have noticed multiple postings of the "greedy" victims of WTC lately...and they have not been pulled. Would you say that often observations sometimes are ahead of the actual news in print and tv media...here on FreeRepublic?

I believe these threads are posted by DemocRATS who want to deplete all available space on Free Republic's servers. If they are allowed to continue doing this, they will force us to have fundraisers EVERY month in order to keep FR going. We need to reserve the server space for the discussion of politics only. Just like Jim said above.

I think calling the victims of 911 "greedy" is a pretty crummy thing to do.

That title should be reserved for some of the charities involved.. They earned it, imo..

And does this mean the moderators will be seeking out and deleting duplicate threads? Personally, I think it would be better not only in terms of preserving space but also for facilitating vigorous debate if there was one thread dealing with a story instead of three or four.

Perhaps I should expand the point a bit. I used the words ant-etablishment to refer to constant and repeating anti Bush treads that I have seen recently. I used the word rhetoric to refer to the fact that most are opinions based on political sour grapes and not fact. In fact, many are out right lies that originated from socialist propaganda sites and picked up by the liberal media and then posted here for my reading enjoyment.

Upon posting a thoughtfull reply, I often find myself being labeled a Bushie!

I'm agreed...too many moronic vanities, self-titles, duplicate posts and all that...and any thing posted from that DU place is about as welcome here as a turd in a hot tub.

On a lighter note...I will be posting a vanity soon to see if any FReepers out here play harmonica, first position/cross harp...

Big bump to you Jim, keep up the good work and God Bless America...
