Just when you think the psychosis of FR cannot be topped comes this bit of creativity from one of Jimrob’s chief bag-persons:
So DJ is of the opinion that people who read Freerepublic receive a “free ride”. There’s so many screws loose in the wowhead that it’s difficult to know where to begin.
There is a simple solution: make JR deliver a product, for a fixed price, in an accountable way. Of course charlatans don’t like accountability, but though titties. Accountability would mean, for example, not running an anonymous mob of “moderators” and a “praetorian guard” complete with gang signs. He would also have to specify what, if anything, he is paying propagandists like DJ and LadyJag. And he would have to abide by the rules.
Product. Price. Predictability. Accountability.
Since when is it “conservatism” to gift-feed a capricious loon who sends his flying monkeys out to steal whatever copyrighted material isn’t duct-taped in place, and has a legion of insane posters claiming that if Rush, Hannity or Beck has any news they “stole it from Freerepublic”?
Here’s a wakeup-ding for you: a little birdie told me that Hannity was a Freeper for a while, incognito. He didn’t like it, for very specific reasons (we may look into that later). Neither did a number of other hi-profile people who dipped their toe in the water and ran.
Perhaps you should just, you know, close?
