We've had a lot of new folks join up recently. Welcome aboard, this thread is a gentle reminder of some basic posting guidelines. (And for some of you old timers as well) Please read the follow, and ask any questions. We will all try to help you out.
If it's a breaking news topic, check breaking news first, it's probably already posted.
To avoid duplicate posts, please search before posting. Use the published article title to prevent duplicates. The best method to search is to pick a key word or two from the title. If the article you are posting is, "Dan Rather Memo", start with 'Memo' for the key word. If it is a hot topic, you might want to use two or more keywords, in this case, try 'memo rather'. For an effective search, select 'match all words' and select 'order by post time'.
All non-sourced non-news threads are posted here. This doesnt mean your one thought is a thread by itself. Lately, we have been seeing articles posted that should be comments made on the main article. Your comment/vanity article will be pulled or moved to General/Chat. Vanities should be limited to the mission of Free Republic.

Jim and the Mod threads (cool band name)

Shouldn't this be breaking news?
It's Bush's Fault.
I question the timing of this thread.
Great, another vanity post :-)
TIP: If you are from Ireland and you've been banned 17 times before, it's probably a good idea to wait a few weeks before signing up again.
aynrand don't try to pull seniority (7/18/2001)
the admin moderator has only been here since 9/3/2001, which might explain the oversight (ha ha)
I'd rate it a 10, other than the fact that there are no moose or cheese references.
I mean...I like cheese...do you like cheese?
I'm on the right.
To quote you, it's been "scarambled"
Also I believe you must post pictures of Catherine Zeta Jones in any Maureen Dowd thread.
(hey, where are the pics for us ladies?)
Sometimes I feel I am "hijacking" thread by including somewhat related, but possibly off-topic, thoughts on someone else's thread. But I don't post vanities anymore. Maybe if something really, really needs it I will.
I doubt little ol' me could cause much of a ruckus here anyway. :)
Thanks for reminder, though.
Check out our page for moose.
Also when posting articles about Protest Warrior please post the Belly Girl picture.."
