Freerepublic is stuck at 39%. Break out the wallet!
It's time to dig into the old piggie bank to help our favorite Conservative website survive!
i agree. just hit the bank for another donatation, but yeah its kind of pathetic it is taking so long lately to get to 100%
This site has been my homepage since I originally joined on Feb.14,1998.
There is no other site like FR and the reason is....member donations pay for our bandwidth.
Jim and John may run this site but it is just as much ours as it is theirs.
We must help it survive!
Keep banning accounts of people who donated money in the past and that isn’t going to be a problem at some point? Management can run their site in whatever way they want but there are always consequences to some decisions.
The consequence is - it keeps FR the best! Only a lib would not want that. Trashing FR in anyway is trashing conservatism - God, Family, Country.
I donated too and it’s still at 39%. Shouldn’t it go up to at 40% after enough people donate?
Only a lib?
When you figure out something about how to run a business, for profit or otherwise please chime in.
Way to go!
You may be the one who finally pushed it over to 40%!
You give the customers what they want or they go somewhere else. No $$$? No business. Tell enough of them to leave your business then you FAIL. At some point it becomes easy to convince yourself it’s all about you and not what you set out to provide. The management is free to do as it pleases as are the people who paid their money to support it. The site has value and makes a real contribution but to think that it will survive without cash flow is nuts.
YES!! Way to go, dis.Kevin!
Your customers don’t control your business? Really? If not for them then you have nothing. Sure, you are responsible for managing the processes that support the creation of what they want but in the end, you work for them since they are the ones paying you. Don’t provide them what they want (for profit, not for profit doesn’t matter) and they terminate the relationship for something better.
