    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...

    Last night around 10:30 Pacific, I posted two comments, one an embedded YouTube link (which of course didn't show up in the post), and the second, the URL to that YouTube of Trump's Saudi speech. This morning, the discussion thread is up and the comments are missing. No not that they were removed by a moderator. Never seen this before and after the recent downtime, raising this question in case anyone else has seen same. Maybe, if others are seeing comments disappear, there is an underlying technical issue?
  • Star Trek: Discovery trailer (looks like PC run amok)

    05/19/2017 11:17:26 AM PDT · by pabianice · 54 replies
    New look at the new Trek incarnation. Overall it looks like a PC mess. White men are almost an after-thought. An overtly gay man on the bridge. Set a decade before TOS. Of course, CGI is many iterations ahead of what has come before and it looks gorgeous. Said to be broadcast worldwide on pay-for-TV CBS offshoot. May explain why the characters are World Government types. Show was due January 2017. Then summer, 2017. Now -- who knows? The original show runner quit and show has been turned-over to others. Casting reportedly still incomplete. Like other Trek fans I am...

    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...
  • Macron Won: Nowhere Left to Run and Everything Will Burn

    Gates of Vienna ^ | 7 May, 2017 | Dymphna
    He is describing the Hell that has become the 21st Century: Although Macron’s victory and Moon’s [South Korea] likely triumph will likely be portrayed as a return of electoral politics to the globalist mainstream — a reversal of the Brexit/Trump trend — they are actually the opposite. Both are attempts to solve challenges that have baffled the elite. Hillary Clinton in her latest attempt to reinvent herself revealed an off-beat turn. “I’ve spent decades learning about what it would take to move our country forward, including people who clearly didn’t vote for me. To try to make sure that we...

    Yes, I am logged in. Normally on iPad I can finger scroll up the writing box to see what I am writing as I write it. Now, for the past two days I cannot see what I am writing. I don't believe this is an FR issue, as it is happening on text conversations with otherse. As with Free Republic, I have to click the button to lower the keyboardscreeni order to see what I am writing. Editing is impossible. Anyone have any help?

    We've all seen pages being slow to load / partial page loads for the last couple months. This goes beyond that. Two things I'm seeing: 1) Blank pages being "served". You hit a link, and get a blank page. 2) Connection errors - This is happening when posting a comment. When posting, I get a "server connection reset" error. Is it time to swap out the hamsters running the FR servers for some fresh ones?

  • Freedom Caucus drives dagger into heart of young Trump Presidency

    FOXNEWS Opinion Section: Elizabeth Peek ^ | March 24, 2017 | Elizabeth Peek
    It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up...

    Just curious...why was the thread about the "new Ferguson evidence" pulled? It was from the BBC (a major news outlet) and is being reported by other major news outlets.Clearly,posts that were untoward (racist,for example) could be deleted from such a thread. It stinks to high heaven but it *is* news. Just sayin'...

    After generations of his family spent their lives as outlaws for making the infamous Irish poitín, Pádraic Ó Griallais has finally been able to carry out the family business in the open just under a decade after the spirit was outlawed. Taking a career break from his job as a high school teacher to establish a new business based on his old family recipe, Ó Griallais is free to produce and sell the highly alcoholic spirit as he pleases without the interference of the Gardaí [Irish police], who hounded the previous poitín distillers in his family with raids to put...

    A former Dairy Queen manager has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, accused of bullying a high school worker who committed suicide just days before Christmas, authorities said. Harley Branham, 21, made her first court appearance Tuesday in connection with the death of Kenny Suttner, 17, who shot himself outside his family’s home on Dec. 21 in Glasgow, Missouri.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May. Her attorney, Jeff Hillbrenner,...

    Ever since the second to last site crash/downtime, freerepublic pages have exhibited very long load times, probably 70% of the time. Some have already mentioned this issue in other threads. I did a couple of simple checks on my browser and it appears that external content, e.g. images or animated GIFs exacerbate the problem, but tonight, I am seeing the issue on the main index page, which doesn't load any external content at all. I am seeing load times on the main page exceed 60 seconds. On pages that have images, load times are 80-120 seconds plus. Anyone else seeing...

    I've been having problems loading pages on Freerepublic for over a week. I thought it was just my connection (I live in the sticks and use a my-fi ATT hotspot for all my internet. However, I have the exact same problem at my work computer in downtown Louisville on a high speed corporate network. The problem manifests itself at least two ways: 1. Pages take so long to load that they timeout and I get a "page reset" message. 2. A partial page loads (often just the first line or two) and then eventually the rest starts showing up in...
