    4/1/2014 | Admin Moderator
    The Free Republic moderator staff today announced a major shakeup in the staffing at FR - no longer will the Viking Kitties be called upon to finish off trolls. "We decided that we should embrace 21st Century Technology instead of just getting all Medieval on trolls" Admin Moderator was quoted as saying. "Yeah, drones aren't cute and cuddly when not frying trolls, but you don't have to scoop the litterbox with drones." "We did extensive field testing of Chaotic Moon drones on Sidebar Moderator. They worked swimmingly and put Sidebar on the deck every time, although he hasn't quite been...

    Announcing the 2013 Free Republic Meet & Greet It is that time of year again. Time to start planning for our annual meet & greet. After several weeks of planning, we finally have some details for this event. This year’s meet & greet will be the weekend of Friday, September 13th. We chose San Francisco this year due to some great sponsorship opportunities that will reduce the amount of money FReepers will need to spend. Friday’s events will begin with a dinner sponsored by Lou Malnati’s Pizza at the Bohemian Club, 624 Taylor Street, San Francisco, California. The Bohemian Club...

  • You are the Free Republic—Enhancement and Initiative Announcement

    05/08/2012 3:35:15 PM PDT · by Admin Moderator · 210 replies
    We can’t rely on the media, even the alternative media. Free Republic is announcing a new initiative that gives you a platform. We want to leverage the most powerful minds on the right to make a difference. To do this, we want to bring a new level of activism, the citizen investigator. In the spirit of 1750’s The Pennsylvania Gazette published by Ben Franklin and of Andrew Breitbart. For the longest time, our primary focus has been on looking at what the media presents and investigating it or discussing it. We have been missing something, YOU! Jim has created a...
  • “Do not post to me” - Repost

    10/17/2011 3:13:10 PM PDT · by Admin Moderator · 341 replies
    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...

  • A Suggestion for Bloggers Who Post at FR

    09/10/2011 2:43:16 PM PDT · by Admin Moderator · 122 replies
    Your contributions are appreciated but many here correctly assume that when you post an excerpt to your blog that you're looking for hits for financial gain, especially those of you who rarely comment. A suggestion from this moderator: Post full text from you blog and ask nicely for a hit to your link. Freepers will treat you much more kindly if you heed this advice.

    In the ancient city of London, on a certain autumn day in the second quarter of the sixteenth century, a boy was born to a poor family of the name of Canty.. oh wait, that’s not how this goes. Let’s try again. Imagine for a moment an old farm on the edge of the interstate. This farm has been a part of the community for years. All of the farmer’s friends love to come to the farmer’s house for meals and conversation. Sometimes, the farmer’s friends like to put up a sign on the land, right along the interstate,...

    How about posters and highway billboard ads plastered with Harry Reid's hideous image and captioned with the word "Undertaker"... and "Vote Angle" at the bottom?

    This is just a quick note to everyone. Lately, a lot of people have discovered a video that supposedly is by a Hawaii official that claims there is no Hawaii Birth Certificate for the President. We have no idea as to the legitimacy of this claim however, we need to warn everyone that the source of this video is a group called The Council of Conservative Citizens. This is NOT a Conservative group, do not be fooled by the name. This group is a front group for a neo-Nazi group known as the National Alliance and is associated with Stormfront....

    This is for posters who don't want to view the chat, religion or any other forums besides the news forum. You have the option to view all topics or only one topic. In the sidebar on the right, look for "Browse by Forum". You have two options, "Everything" or you can choose only one topic to view as your default setting. Most who want to view only one forum choose news. Currently these are your only two options. Most posters choose all because they know how to sort through the comments that they want to read. AM

    This is a public service announcement from your friendly neighborhood Admin Moderators (Sidebar gave us some attitude so we shoved him in the closet for a while. He never recovered from the Yacht incident) For a while, we have noticed some things happening that we need your help with. The Free Republic community is strong; we are almost a family, albeit very dysfunctional at times. Like any community, we have new members joining us daily. Unfortunately, the air of suspicion and the desire to keep things “the way they are” has fostered a feeling of distrust with new members. Almost...
