Repeatedly, FR moderators have moved TOP postings related to current NEWS and calls for conservative ACTIVISM from the News and Activism section, over to "blogger's and personal" which has no traffic by comparison.
I fully understand Jim Robinson's original purpose in launching FR, to provide a community in which conservatives could get TRUTH not available in the MSM, information not available in the MSM and access to fellow conservatives so that we could work together towards a conservative agenda.
Yet time after time, FR moderators bury this information over in "blogger's and personal" and kill story after story, vital to the conservative movement.
Without a change in this policy, I am through posting to FR. The moderators on FR have less sense than the moderators on DU, where they at least work to bury the opposition, instead of themselves.
What gives? Anyone understand this self-defeating policy?
No way !
Like moving this to General Chat? Hmm. Havent noticed but I will start checking Bloggers
I don't find this to be the case at all. If the thread is popular, then it is popular wherever it is posted.
And without you giving us an example of this "self defeating policy," then you come-off as somewhat of a whiner.
..and knock it off with spamming Front Page, too.. my mail
In the upper right screen there is a cool “everything” link.
After FR’s apparent suspension of all rules (especially vanities) during the last election, I have no idea what the current rules are.
That said, I still love FR and I’m not going nowhere.
Who licked the red off your candy?
Care to give an example of these “TOP postings related to current NEWS and calls for conservative ACTIVISM”...
I bet they’re incoherent Orly Taitz posts.
Well I think you should. Absolutely, it’s time for you to move on.
I hate it when a complaint is made but doesn’t show us why you are angry.
FR should stay.
Select all categories. That’s what I do. Of course I read fast ~ particularly the big words@!
Exactly...it's what I use all the time.
I don’t see what the problem is. I just click on the link on the main page and get everything (all categories). I just keep refreshing so nothing is missed.
Give up FR? No way!
For one thing, it would be nice to get the very accurate foreign news reports from our retired border agents in news instead of bloggers. Articles not in the ‘news’ section, do not get any notice.
Doesn't seem like FR with the issue here...
