  • A word about posting satire

    09/29/2014 3:38:42 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 230 replies
    September 29, 2014 | Jim Robinson
    No, FR is not trying to quash satire. However, it should be clearly labeled as such in the title. Some people seem to think it's great trickling our readers into falling for satire. It's not. A lot of people come to FR and scan the headlines clicking on articles of interest. If they're not familiar with the author or source, they may be misled and may even pass it on to others. No thanks. If you post satire, please label it as "satire' in the title. Thanks

    The collapse of XP support by Microsoft has led to a proliferation of disruptive internet advertising. These "SmarterPower" thugs are wrecking my FR access. Is this a plot? How do does one keep these ani off one's computer? They "pop-up" at every keystroke. And they have sound!Who needs this? Why pay an ISP or a cable company if they are selling us to every internet advertiser. Of course, the main issue is security and KGB-like surveillance by the Alinskyites. WTF are these people?

    Vanity | 9/17/2014 | Vanity
    A very disturbing number of Freepers are openly advocating, on Free Republic threads, for the defeat of Senator Pat Roberts and other good Conservative Republicans. Greg Orman, in Kansas, is a pro abortion, anti gun, tax and spend Liberal Democrat who has given tens of thousands of dollars to Obama and Pelosi and the Democrat Party and Harry Reid. I am called an "idiot" for supporting Roberts. However, I think that those on Free Republic who support Harry Reid and Greg Orman should be ZOTTED, kicked off the site. I have had enough of there hate filled, vindictive, misguided trash.

Quotation Marks Quotes have to be used around the URLs for web pages and images on Free Republic. Some systems do not require this. Ours...

    Has anyone else run into a posting glitch using Chrome on an Android device? After receiving a Chrome browser update yesterday, I can no longer post to FR from my phone. (I had never encountered any difficulties before this update.) The first word that I enter as a reply to a thread gets repeated when I hit the space following it. Trying to position after the repeated word to delete it just repeats that same first word over and over. I've tried logging out of FR and back in again with no change. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, Bob.

He says he managed to get the site owner to delete it and we can thank him for that. But in the message he sent me there was also an accusation that the list was provided to a third party by John Robinson. That's bullshit. John would never do such a thing.
