One of the beauties of the internet is the massive amount of info available...unfiltered...makes being somewhat cynical/skeptical necessary.

Since the purpose of your plan is to reduce the number of people who post here, I dont see any advantage in your idea.

The problem with this is that FR has a very specific "target audience" and purpose.

My idea is trying to enhance the intended audience and thus function for Free Republic. So yes, there are people who do need to go as their ideas and opinions are detrimental to the Conservative cause.
