Free Republic Minnesota PING List - Anyone Interested?
9/13/06 | MplsSteve

Posted on 09/13/2006 9:14:01 AM PDT by MplsSteve

I'm given some thought to starting a Minnesota PING list.

Right now, I envision it would be a fairly moderate PING list - not in politics, but in the number of PINGs you're likely to receive.

If you're interested in being on the Minnesota PING List, let me know.


TOPICS: US: Minnesota
KEYWORDS: chittychittychatchat; minnesonotnews; minnesota; pinglist

Why not just use the Minnesota topic already in existence instead of reinventing the wheel?

I know how you feel. We finally bit the bullet and moved out of Minneapolis 2 years ago.

We now live in Carver County, the most conservative county in this blue state.

It took awhile to adjust from urban living to ex-urban living, but now I love it. People are still sane here. LOL

I know, Barb. I know.

I was watching the Sec of State's web site last night and Erlandson had a nice lead - albeit with only 22 precincts reporting.

The numbers didn't move much from 9 'til 10PM and then the local news said he was winning by a large margin.

I seriously felt sick! I really did. I still do. I'm amazed that the DFL could endorse such a ethically-challenged bigot like Ellison.

I gotta hand it to Ellison though. He put together a coalition of blacks, Hispanics, Somalis and guilt-ridden white liberals into a winning formula.

It also helped him that the white vote was split amongst three other candidates. If there had been one opponent against Ellison, he likely would have lost.

As for moving, try west Bloomington, Burnsville or Eden Prairie. That's still GOP turf out there.

You do of course know that Reagan stopped all campaign ads a week before the election and that's why Mondale won. Mondale won Mn. by (something like) 3,500 votes.

Add me to your list. However, I don't really understand what a ping list is. Can someone answer what it means? I keep seeing "ping" appearing in messages on FR topics.

Hi Gumdrop,

In a nutshell, when someone is pinged, it means another poster is calling your attention to a particular thread that might be of interest to you. It will show up in the upper right screen in red in "new posts to you." In this case, it will serve to "ping" you to Minnesota topics that could be pertinent to you. Basically, it's just a call to attention to like-minded Freepers to Minnesota news you may have missed in the sidebar.

Sometimes people just ping themselves to a thread for later reading. If a topic interests them and they don't have time to read it right away, they'll post a ping to their own screen name. Usually a ping is directed to another Freeper in the To: line when posting a comment.

Bump or bookmark are also commonly used terms when referencing a thread.

It serves as a bookmark of sorts. When you click on 'my comments' the ping will take you back to the thread you were interested in earlier.

I hope my explanation wasn't too vague. Please feel free to ask more questions. I'd be happy to answer them. :)

I just used the reply line in posting comments to ping you, and myself, to this thread.

This is a very useful thread you might enjoy.

Happy Freeping! :)
