“Do not post to me”
Free Republic ^ | 8/28/07 | Admin Moderator

Posted on 08/28/2007 5:47:37 PM PDT by Admin Moderator

We've received many requests from freepers requesting that other freepers not post to them. There are several problems with this.

1. It's impossible for us to enforce.
2. We don't have the time to enforce these requests.
3. We don't have the software to keep track of these requests.
4. Thick skin helps.
5. Ignore the poster, if you don't reply, they won't reply.

Free Republic does not need a bozo filter, bozo filters are for wimps.

Final note: Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al, would continue posting to (harassing) someone after being asked to stop. Conservative FReepers would not.

Were you here for the infamous "don't ping Arthur McGowan" thread?

I think you can imagine the results. McGowan took it like a man, too. ;-)

Not really, it's been a problem that's needed addressing for a while now.

Fair enough. Some people are too annoying and their sole goal is to disrupt every thread in particular the "good news about Iraq" threads. Eventually FR needs to do something with these folks who spread defeatism all over the place. Millions of people read FR each week, it should be the forum where people come to see how we are winning the war and why we should fight the war till we achieve the ultimate victory.

FR should be "THE VICTORY FORUM".

Cool. The “don’t post to me” folks have always been some of the most annoying posters at FreeRepublic. Usually they only make that whining request after lobbing an insult at somebody, and they want to be able to get the person banned after receiving a well-deserved rebuff.

Dang, I have that syndrome myself. If it’s not written down, I forget it before I get back to where I need to remember it. (sigh)

Oh well, getting old and I’m blonde, I have two really good built-in excuses.

Have a terrific night, I think it’s time for a martini and a good book.

There you have it....That is the unarguable secret to succesful posting.

Put your pride in your pocket, and walk away with the personal thought: "whatever..."

Nobody is gonna give a rats ass, and in 3 hours, nobody is gonna care...
