Appeal or close Free Dominion?
Free Dominion ^ | 10/02/13 | Mark Fournier

Posted on 10/03/2013 2:16:25 PM PDT by D. S. Mayfield

Today we took a beating from the jury who heard the case of Richard Warman v. Fourniers and John Does. Their decision was completely unexpected (at least by me) so now we must re-evaluate our position.

Close Free Domionion?

No way. That’s our back-up site for when this place goes down.

And that case certainly proves it. They should keep fighting, IMHO.

Does anyone have any idea what the “complained of comments” are in detail?

P.S. The layout of the Free Dominion forum is far more organized and creates far more person-to-person discussion than the Free Republic one does. Anyone agree?

Richard Warman makes a living suing publications and websites that “offend” him. He is the one who sued Mark Steyn I think.

Satan and his minions are hard at work.

Let’s put out a call to help them financially.

If they should decide NOT to appeal or lose that appeal, there is only ONE next step.

“Tea Party”

Canada is in some respects a very un-free place. Do not even think about speaking adversely about homosexuality, for instance, in Canada.

Stick it where the sun don’t shine, pal. Contrary to popular belief, being on an internet forum for politics for a handful of years longer than someone you are berating does not make you more qualified to exchange intellectual (or in your case, clearly nonintellectual) thought. Good day. Later!

P.S. Résumé

Fine.
Disregarding any and all of your previous weak-assed objections..

Coming onto Free Republic after being here for a week and
complaining about Free Republic makes you a smacktard and
a slap-mammy moron. Also you appear to be a rubber-glove
wanker. Currently Government programs that might help you
are shut down. Seek a dark alley for relief.

Well, obviously, we all would like you to appeal. But we can certainly understand that you're not made of money, either.

Good luck. I hope you can find a way to prevail.

Change the name to freedominion.com, host the site on US servers and transfer the rights to the site to a friendly foreigner.

I also hadn’t noticed until I posted that the URL differs slightly compared to what I remember. At least for me, though,

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/freerepublic2

now redirects to what I’d just posted,

And sorry to have to add yet another note, but I should've simply omitted the final period in my last post. Clicking on the link works just fine, but copying the entire last line (complete with space and period) and trying to use that yields yet another "404 page not found."

Once again, just for convenience:

You're welcome. I'd never even heard of Yahoo Clubs, and even http://clubs.yahoo.com doesn't work anymore. I then found this page from 2001. (You've been around here longer that I have--I probably wasn't even lurking here for at least most of 2001.)

http://groups.yahoo.com/local/clubs_pre.html

Yahoo! Clubs will soon merge with Yahoo! Groups. Don't worry, all your Yahoo! Clubs web addresses and URLs will continue to work, all data and event ownership will be maintained, and your entire club membership will carry over. This will all happen automatically.

I suppose that "all your Yahoo! Clubs web addresses and URLs will continue to work" is no longer true some 12 years later.

Probably like most people, I myself rarely visit the Yahoo group unless this main site is having problems, and there hasn't been posting activity at the group in the last 7 days. Of course, the group is useful when things do happen here, and activity grows considerably when they do.
