Good-Bye Cruel Free Republic
6-16-02 | wasfree

Posted on 06/16/2002 5:32:24 AM PDT by magnum opus dejure

Well, it's been 4 years since I first found Free Republic. I have always felt like I belonged here and have really enjoyed the banter back and forth between us members. I am afraid all this is now over. I am really suprised and shocked at it's suddenness. Before I leave I want to thank a freeper from Michigan who sent me a DVD player last year to give to my kids for Christmas. You reaffirmed my faith in humanity.

I know this thread will be deleted before many people get to read it, but I just can't go without saying a final word. Every since 911 the 'vibe' here at FR has been decidedly hostile. I guess it was a matter of time before the newbie moderator got around to weeding me out for my sometimes unpopular views. So I join the ranks of A+Bert and so many others who gave FR a interesting flavor. I will miss coming here 20 times a day and keeping up on things. But without posting priviledges there is just no point. I must go find another conservative group to try to be a part of.

In the future, when a freeper who has been a loyal member since August 1998 crosses the line, how about a note instead of banning? Would that have been too much? I may have gotten out of line, how is beyond me, but if such a tresspass would have been pointed out I would gladly have refrained from doing so again. It is just not right to just ban an account with no explaination. Especially when the freeper has been here 4 years. I have no idea what I am going to do with my days now that I no longer have FR. Well, I guess I have said my part. It is a sad day when one has to leave family and friends. I feel like some of you were just that. But apparently I am no longer wanted around here. I bid my good day to you all and hope that karma pays it's respects to those who do injustice.

Anyone who compares themself with A+Bert SHOULD leave. That psycho freak was ecstatic on 9-11.

OK, I will have to ask. How are you banned if you are still posting?

Who "were" you? And What did you do to get banned? And people who have been banned are often allowed to come back after "time out" - or that was true in the past. Have you freepmailed Jim Robinson?

A-Bert was let back in time after time after time....there for awhile.

I have to post the obligatory:

Don't let the door hit you in the clymer on your way out.

That out of the way, have you tried cheese with your moose?

And who were you before you became magnum opus dejure?

Why can't you whinners just slink away without a "farewell address"? Didn't you learn as a child that if you want to play in the other kids yard that they have the "right" to tell you when to leave? Go! Have a good life...

Since your "member since" date is today, I must assume you were never banned or that you were banned and have easily found your way back in. Why not just continue to post as magnum opus dejure?

"Yeah, you are still posting"

That's like calling the cops and saying "Someone just murdered me"...if you're gone, how come your posts are still showing up?

There are a lot of new forums out there that allow all points of view to be expressed, like this place used to. You shouldn't have to much trouble finding some, good luck. The more restrictions that are placed on discourse, the more useless it becomes.

Hell my friend Buckeroo has been banned 10 times. He wears it like a badge.

Try as I might I never seem to be able to achieve this level of accomplishment. But I have a plan----------: )

Who "were" you and why did you get banned? Why not ask to un-banned rather than start another silly goodbye thread?

You are right. FR has changed for the worse. I rarely post anymore and only visit occasionally. I miss the old FR.

LOL! There's a good reason why the mods leave these up for folks to see. It's important to be reminded of the childishness (I'm going to take my marbles and go home....casting a karma spell as I do it....) contained herein.

Gee, you wrote all that and did not even give your banned FReeper name. Why should we believe a word you said in your post without ANY specifics?

And also, assuming you were banned, what views were you espousing that got your account nuked?

I mean, it can't be that bad if I can click on your new SN and see you're still here.

By the way, how come no Freeper's ever given ME a free DVD player? I must not be one of the cool A-listers, so I'm leaving too! Opus! Opus! Opus!

(Actually, I'll settle for a CD burner. USB compatible.)

I see the author is listed as 'wasfree' -- does that mean your handle was some variation on the word "free"?

The Admin Moderator is obviously allowing you to stay under a new name, so tell us who you were, explain what you did, or crawl back in the DU hole you came out of.

Yeah! How did he score a DVD player? All I got since I joined FreeRepublic was a stupid t-shirt, which I bought myself. If anyone wants to buy me a new printer, feel free to do so.

I can't believe you were permanently banned without a warning after 4 years. WHat did you do? Since you won't tell us what you did...it must of been REAL bad and worthy of being banned....

According to the "find user" function, "wasfree" hasn't even posted since last July ... except for whatever he did yesterday to get banned, I guess.
