My Last Post

Posted on 04/06/2012 5:04:25 PM PDT by Glenn

I've been here a year or two.

The demands of the fundraisers have gone up and up.

While I have no dispute of Jim's numbers as up front, they have gone governmental.

Look closely at the budget. Decide for yourself.

If Melissa Giraldo is a guy then there is no hope for the world.

That's probably the same thing someone said about the Canadian transexual. She...he...it...arrg whatever... was that hot.

While we’re on the subject, a whole bunch of small monthly donors is just as good as a few big endowments.

Do you have any idea how much money Jim could make by selling this site, a la Huffington Post for example, to an entity that wanted to use it for advertising? For that matter, do you know how much money Jim could make by selling advertising?

It says plenty about the character of Jim that he isn’t selling out to anybody.

And you are questioning the numbers?
Dude. Get a grip.

Understood. But if you’re ever looking for any promotional artwork I’m sure there are plenty of us who would be happy to donate some skills.

Jim, commerce is a good thing. Profit is even better. It means you can expand your commerce and provide jobs for others or big gas guzzling SUV's with gun racks and bumper stickers for yourself.

But I think I understand your reticence to keep your baby non-commercial. I just don't agree with you.

Either way, like Glen, I've been here since 1998 aand his comparison of FR to government is about as accurate as the constitutional scholar's lecture to the SCOTUS.

Classy reply to Glen btw.

I think we need a sellers forum where proceeds or at least a percentage goes directly to Free Republic. Myself and plenty of others with an artistic bent are more than happy to promote FR through art.


Agreed . . . Would be doable.

. . . with medicare payment taking a chunk out . . . my Soc Sec is now $360/mo. Wheee. Not easy.

Still trying to keep FR non-commercial. Thanks.


Probably still my PREFERENCE.

However . . . Given all the trying financial givens in this traumatic era . . .

and IF lurkers &/or posters below a certain number of posts were to be the only ones to see ads—that would be quite workable, too . . .

particularly for Patriotic companies, individuals, products.

And personally, I’d love to see the figures worked out somehow such that a month or 3’s buffer could be built up. Not that I have any capacity to help, much. Sadly.

If I can donate,which I did last time,anyone can donate.

I would assume Freepers on a budget,as I am,are well aware that you can give up spending on something to give to something else.

That’s what I learned early on-—I was a Depression baby whose father died very young.Going without was routine for many years.

Please don't totally rule it out, if you can keep it somewhat under the radar.

The positives could really outweigh the negatives (such as my personal pissing/moaning about how this place so stoneage much of the time).

Anyhow......I just logged in to find the FReepathon thread so I can do my quarterly - such as it is, in this Obama economy, so off I go wandering!

If you/we went that route . . .

personally,

I’d want you to insure that the new set-up would be

LESS STRESS for you, for John

and then for the rest of us.

Otherwise . . . the cost might be too high per benefit.

I DO THINK it COULD be set up decreasing the stress . . . there are likely folks you could trust to take some of that stress off of you in such a situation—freeing you for the nicer aspects of your life.

That might make it worth it . . . in addition to decreasing concerns, anxieties & sheer hassles etc. every quarter.

If I was to order a plate of spicy chicken wings and down it with a pitcher of beer, would you then consider giving some additional money to the Free Republic?

Remember Mr. Drysdale from the Beverly Hillbillies? I always thought he knew his stuff as it pertained to banking.

Glenda,

You may not have realized it, but donating to FR is voluntary. Not
mandatory.

/////This site should never run at a negative cost to the owner. Period./////

even if the owner refuses to have any dialogue about the future of the sight and just says “its mine and this is how it is....period?”

if he can get enough to donate with that attitude more power to him....if not??????????

Glenn, you are in the Class of ‘98.

You know how things are run here.

No one is asking you to give what you cannot afford.

I contribute a small amount every month via credit card. It could not be simpler.

If everyone did that that posts and lurks here, Jim would not have to worry about Freep a thons at all. There would be a stable base of steady income, without billing.

There are 100,000 people a month that use Freerepublic. If
everyone gave $ 5.00/month, the yearly cost would be paid in one month.

Truth is, not a large percentage of those here pay for the privilege. Everyone needs to do something.

BTW, if you are going to go out after 13 years, you could have put a little more thought into your opus instead of embarrassing the rest of us Class of ‘98-ers.

As another member of the Class of 1998 (lurked in 1997), I agree with everything you said. It’s a voluntary contribution, and given Jim’s medical issues coupled with the costs to run this site, I don’t begrudge him a dime. God bless him and this site. Not happy with it, don’t contribute. But why stop coming to the site for the articles?
