I sent JimRob a note stating my grievance, and he sent a note back to the effect: "I understand your concern, but I can't, and won't, stifle discussion and criticism of George W. Bush, the GOP, or any politician or party in this forum. Your past financial support, and ongoing involvement, are greatly appreciated." Righteous.
That's how Jim runs this place. The metal skull plated molemen who accuse Jim of selling out "true conservatives" for the RINOs, Bushbots and NeoCons" are liars and dolts. FR is not a haven for Third Party malcontents either.
It's none of that, all of that, and often a mystery best left unsolved.
I've always advocated a $20-$30 "cover charge" to post here. That'll weed out the dipshits, trolls and leakers. It'll allow Jim and John to plan and deploy the bandwidth commensurate with their predictable user base as well. I want to know everybody here has an investment in the forum's ongoing success, regardless of their politics or ideology.
