    For the umpteeth morning in a row I fired up FR only to find, again, an abundance of articles about both dog attacks and Catholics. I'm not sure why we have to have so many each day but here's what I know: Pit Bulls are vicious animals bred over centuries for a single purpose. Pit Bulls are deeply misunderstood and make great pets unless they're abused by gang members. Pit Bulls are loyal and friendly... until, randomly, they decide to eat either the new baby or Grandma. The Pope may, or may not, be Satan's minion. Some group of bishops...

  • Problem when password changed

    I changed my password. When I entered by new password for logging in, it rejected it. What happened is that my password was too long, and it truncated when I changed. But it did not warn me. I use a 'robot' for passwords, so I can have 'long passwords'. I figured out how the password was truncated (the length it needed to be). When I truncated the password, the new password worked. It is my opinion that the 'focus' software should have warned me that the password was too long.

    New iPhone 7 recently updated and I can’t remember which browser still allows you to enlarge font on a site like Free Republic and still allow wrap around text in the viewing screen so that you don’t have to scroll left and right like a fool to read each line. Whyyyyy can’t we have FR work well and visibly on mobiles? Or do I just not know the trick?

    Hi, I am a longtime FReeper and just needed to talk to someone. I will not post and run, but I must say, I am just getting into bed. I had to go to the hospital because I slipped on our hardwood stairs, and my head hit the wall. I had a headache that would not quit, no matter how much ice I put on it. I even took a half of a tramadol that I got a couple of years after I fell on the ice in our rural Canadian driveway; nothing helped. The hospital told me that the...

    This is a news forum. But I sure am seeing a lot of vanity posts lately. You know our readers generally frown on vanities (unless exceptional in quality) so if you feel the urge to post yet another run of the mill vanity, please resist it. Or, in the very least, be sure to submit a donation along with your vanity submission. Thank you very much.

    I have received an invitation to a luncheon to discuss my back nerve problems from a group I do not know. The only people who know about this problem are my doctors who are all within the same group. So how did this other group know about my problem? Did someone sell my medical problem? That would be a HPIA violation of the law. This was a personal addressed invitation. I am not sure how to proceed, but if I get some great advice here, I will send $250 to FR and as Proof of that commitment, I will send...

  • How do I find out why a post was pulled? Who do I contact?

    I have just had a thread pulled and I am rather baffled as to why. And I'm not sure how to even contact somebody to ask why which is why I am posting here. The reason the thread was pulled according to the post is: "Why is this in the news forum?" The answer to that question is because it was a post taken directly from an online newspaper - the Daily Mail I've been posting here for fourteen years and this is the first time I've ever seen this happen. If the rules have changed, I'm happy to follow...
