  • Vanity: Multiple Thread Repostings

    To: Admin Moderator Glad you brought FR back up. However, a really annoying quirk surfaced about a full week before the site went down, and persists now. It appears as if every thread is re-posted as a new thread, as many times as the number of replies to it. This makes it very difficult to scan the site quickly for breaking news. The multiple threads ("hiccups") are not affected by my Account settings, Page Layout, or anything else under local control here. If this is an experiment in "Bumping to the Top," please revert back to the normal method of...

    I have been trying to post a reply to the above-linked thread, Huma Abedin Files for Divorce all night. Instead, I get a constant "internal error" message. The moderators have given me the following advice: "If no one else is having this problem, I suspect it may be an issue specific to the device you’re using. Try clearing your browser cache (or try another browser all together). If that doesn’t do it, try rebooting the device. There may be an available software update that may resolve your issue. If all else fails, it’s ok to post a vanity thread to...

    I'm curious to know the number of threads and replies of our Free Republic audience. I wager that there are many amongst us who have started over 500 threads or have logged over 100,000 replies. There might be some who have exceeded 1000 threads and some with over 200,000 replies.
  • Authorize the Use of Force Against Our Real Enemy - Iran

    townhall.com ^ | September 9, 2013 | Kurt Schlichter
    Why are we talking about Syria when the real enemy is Iran? Everyone agrees that a key central consideration behind an attack on Syria is the message it would sent to the mullahs in Iran. The idea is that weakness and fecklessness in the face of Assad’s barbarism du jour will somehow telegraph to the players in Tehran that it’s open season on building nukes.There’s an easy solution to this quandary, and unlike hand-slapping the degenerates in Damascus it serves a clear American interest. Congress should authorize the use of force to topple the Iranian regime if it doesn’t dismantle...

    Am I the only one having issues displaying threads on the forum this morning? Threads with less than 50 posts appear to display fine. Threads with more than 50 replies to them I see perhaps the first 12-15 posts in the thread and that's it. I don't see the page footer or anything else, the page just truncates. Also, I've noticed if I click on a specific message link to a thread, I don't get that message link displayed, rather I see replies above or below that link. For example, if Person A replied to Person B, and the link...

    Well it is Thanksgiving week. We just finished a disappointing election, Israel is in trouble. The United States is figuring out how to economically survive and I have not had one of these fun vanities in a long time. We used to do them pretty frequently back in the day. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and a great time participating in this vanity like we used to do in the past!!!!!

    On Dec. 24, saw a posting titled: The Missing 13th Amendment. I saved the link and returned to it this morning to read it in depth, but found it had been pulled. Was this found to be unfit for discussion? Was it a bogus article in the first place?? This was the article address- http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2153789/posts

    During the last California primary election I posted discussion threads for region relevant candidates and measures, called CA Freepers Voter Guides. http://www.freerepublic.com/~emat/ http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/search?m=all;o=time;s=Freepers%20Voter%20Guide These posts were well received by friends, family, and fellow Freepers, and they even received some modest media attention: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1653731/posts http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1653731/posts?page=26#26 However, I noticed last time the resulting discussions would have worked better in a style similar to the state message boards (e.g.: http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/profiles?location=53 ), because with election information it is important to see the most up-to-date comments first, and Freepers need to be able to delete or amend their statements as they receive new information. However,...

Some were boring as hell and some I couldn't get a hit on if I paid folks to look at 'em. Others , were equally as dull, but Hey, with all the stuff out there on the 'net these days, who's to say I could or would have much to add to much of anything that folks cared to know about or had always...

    Shroud of Turin: Old as Jesus? By THE NEW YORK TIMES Published: January 27, 2005 he Shroud of Turin is much older than the medieval date that modern science has affixed to it and could be old enough to have been the burial wrapping of Jesus, a new analysis concludes. Since 1988, most scientists have confidently concluded that it was the work of a medieval artist, because carbon dating had placed the production of the fabric between 1260 and 1390. In an article this month in the journal Thermochimica Acta, Dr. Raymond N. Rogers, a chemist retired from Los Alamos...
