Underground freepmail campaign by unknown disgruntled FReeper
freepmail | 01/16/2011 | Mrs Dogood

Posted on 01/16/2011 11:49:56 AM PST by Jim Robinson

Hello. You don’t know me under this name. For reasons that are going to be obvious soon, I didn’t wish to send you this message with my usual Free Republic account. This message is an invitation, a welcome to a new forum called TrueBlueFreedom.com

While I love the people who make up Free Republic, I have many complaints about Jim Robinson and his cronies who run the actual website. Over and over again, whenever somebody has complained or offered suggestions, they have been told by JimRob and others to go and start their own website if they know so much. Well, I’ve decided to take them up on that offer.

I’ve started TrueBlueFreedom.com for three simple reasons, and once you’ve read those reasons, I’m sure you’ll agree that we need to make a few adjustments if we want this powerful bastion of conservatism to remain. The first reason is simple: Free Republic is too important to left in the hands of JimRob. Jim and his son John have repeated stated that if just one Freepathon goal isn’t met, that’s it - “Free Republic will be dead.” I can’t stand the idea of America without Free Republic. Imagine if we hadn’t been there when Dan Rather was passing around his forgeries, how different things would be today. Now realize that, as things are going, we won’t be around when the next Rathergate happens. We can’t allow that to happen, and since JimRob has publicly refused to deal with this issue, we have to take matters into our own hands. My solution is TrueBlueFreedom.com

The second reason is that I believe that free market capitalism has made America great, and that attempting any other system will lead us to ruin. A belief JimRob apparently doesn’t share, since he continues to refuse to place ads on Free Republic and instead depend on a PBS-esque donation system. We are not NPR, and we are not a charity – why do we raise money like one? For this reason, I’ve developed TrueBlueFreedom.com to depend on advertisements. TrueBlueFreedom.com will not depend on donations, instead, we will depend on the opportunities provided by the free market to create a self-sustaining version of Free Republic – without the constant Freepathons.

The third reason is that JimRob is, in my opinion, a petty tyrant. How many of you know somebody who was purged? How many wonder if you may be next on the list? If you’re neither of these people, consider this: Giuliani was America’s Mayor in 2008. That didn’t stop JimRob from purging all his supporters without warning. How do you know that whoever you support in the Republican primaries won’t raise JimRob’s wrath? How do you know the next purge group won’t be Mormons, Jews, Birthers, Pro-Palin, Anti-Palin, and so on? I believe that purging the non-believers and demanding total mental agreement with the “Dear Leader” is the exact opposite of conservative values, regardless of where JimRob stands on abortion and homosexuality. And for that reason, I’ve set up TrueBlueFreedom.com as a place where conservatives who follow the rules will not be banned, no matter how much I disagree with them. Regardless of your politics, religion, or favorite sport team, you will only be banned for breaking the rules. TrueBlueFreedom.com is a purge-free zone.

So, I hope you’ve read all this, and will accept my invitation. If this seems like something you can believe in, come to TrueBlueFreedom.com, sign up, and start talking. And if you like it, spread the word. Because Free Republic is too important to just let die.

one perk, you can do and say whatever you want and blame it on being old...now its just me and my old lab..she’s cranky too.

My DH and I are here with our 4 cats. V..e..r..y quiet house! When the house creaks (as they tend to do) it scares the cats. LOL

My old Tortie cat and I are growing old together. She's just about at the end of her days. Sort of sad around here.

Hey JimRob-

I’ve been here going on 13 years (initially as a lurker), and you’re still doing a fantastic job running YOUR site the way you want it to be run! I have no complaints at all, else I would have left. This “Ms Dogood” post via FreepMail is a hoot and hilarious for its stupidity!

You can count on me to double my contributions...

Thank you, JC

Eaker, that may be something you might not enjoy. Someone whose name escapes me at the moment, well, go on and take a look at what the woman who shall remain nameless did while attempting to park in a certain parking space.



/ It is only a coincidence, of course, that I'm pinging Onyx. She was the one who gave me the photo so it's only proper I acknowledge her, uhm as the person who gave me the photo that is.

Isn’t BLUE the Demoncrat color

Only because the Leftist media deliberately wanted to not associate the CommiecRATs with being REDs.

Their subterfuge worked. Even FNC and people here on FR generally go along with it.

The debate on birtherism continues and no one has been purged who didn’t cross a line in the debate.

Your in-sanity ping list has been whittled down a lot that should tell you something.

pepper use to bark when any car pulled into the drive way..now she lays on her overstuffed chair and barks at nothing...drives me nut, I figure she probably is hearing things in her head and woofs at them...again, something like me..LOL I love cats but if I got one, the street I live on has traffic and if it got out it would be hit by a car. Then I would have a Frisbee cat.

My daughter has lots of barn cats and tried to give me a black one, I told her I wanted a black one with stripes or spots and she said she had a great can of paint...not good enough. I saw a Savannah cat and they are beautiful but cost in the thousands to buy... too much money. :O( but they are not black.

She has a strain of 7 toed cats in the barn. There is a name for them but I cannot spell it...

The Savannah cats are gorgeous but loud! They really sound like a wild cougar or something. My old gal just lays around. She’s deaf and has a tumor near her lung. I’m just keeping her pain free for now. Hard to make that final decision when she purrs and bathes and looks so alert most of the time.

. The website gives no clue as to what it’s about. You can’t access the forum to see what it’s about unless you register first. Looks like a non-starter.

Time is short. It's a big wide internet. What person would waste their time and sign up for a website without being able to see it first?

How idiotic.

Website -- Fail!

But only the domain is registered at GoDaddy. The site is hosted at onlineinstitute.com, with out of the box SMF forum software installed. The IP isn’t listed as oiservers, onlineinstitute.com or similar, but assigned to LiquidWeb. So OI is renting server space from LW, then parceling out virtual websites or virtual servers from there. I’ve seen this before. If OI was so big as to have CBS, Sony, ABC as clients, wouldn’t the IP be listed in ARIN as OI’s not LW’s?

Even senderbase.org shows OI as assigned the 69.167.173.234/31 block, which is only two IP’s if I remember correctly. LW is assigned the 69.167.128.0/18 block. OI is only listed as a “domain” under LW. So OI looks like it’s a reseller/VAR of LW. Netcraft has oliserver.com running linux/Apache at 69.167.173.235

My reasoning was that if OI isn’t big enough to own it’s own IP block, they’re probably selling VPS’s on their two IP’s- not something that I could see that would handle much of a website, let alone a forum with an amount of traffic.

But then what do I know? I’m one of those who think that FR is doing things pretty much right as it is. Don’t want no emoticons, banner ads, pop ups, pop unders or that krap(tm).

Thanks for your thoughts. #;^D

Thanks. I’d just never heard of it, although I haven’t heard of a lot of things. [ grin ]

It’s just that an out of the box PHP forum software probably hosted on a VPS by a hosting company who only has 2 IP’s doesn’t seem to me to be conducive to future expansion to try to rival FR. I guess that they could change software and hosters as they grew, but... maybe we should ask JohnRob what that might entail.

No wait, I already know from my little server and believe me, I wouldn’t wish those headaches on a liberal. Oh, wait... on second thought, yes I would. [even bigger grin]

It does shows us about their overall mindsets. I seem to recall others and in IMO, MilspecRob and Drew68 deserved zots by the mods before they asked for it. Both of those guys are liberal Politijab posters as is Parsifal.

Peace on this thread.
