This is a news forum. But I sure am seeing a lot of vanity posts lately.

You know our readers generally frown on vanities (unless exceptional in quality) so if you feel the urge to post yet another run of the mill vanity, please resist it.

Or, in the very least, be sure to submit a donation along with your vanity submission.

Thank you very much.

“People are posting half thoughts and itches that need a scratch as if they were deep insights.”

Well, heck, isn’t that S.O.P here, even WITHOUT vanities? :):):)

I especially don’t get the “I have something important to say and I don’t want to have to say it at the end of a 1,021 previous posts because then I know that my important thought will never be seen!”

VanDeKoik :" Yes.
Not every thought needs to be an OP."

One of the things that drew me to FreeRepublic in the first place, is critical thinking,.. and the fellowship of Conservatives.
There has been very little critical thinking in the media or in modern 'journalism', rather, they have become 5th columninsts,
and have most of their 'news items' handed to them by operatives with an agenda.
Independent thought needs not be provoked by a newspaper article, although the timing so close to an election is inopportune, at worst.
Vanities have value .. and promote independent thought.and

2nd ZOT ..
and Indefinite probation in the corner !

(ouch) !

Gee, I think I have done one in thirteen years.

I think that's how many I've posted in my 15 years.

My approach is if a posting doesn't have a link, I usually don't bother viewing it, this one excepted.

That also goes for twitter and youtube links, as well.

Thanks for clearing this up. I was going to post a thread asking why so many vanity threads have been removed. 😹
