  • FreeRepublic.com being displayed as a "dangerous site" on my computer

    11/03/2018 1:56:24 PM PDT · by BlueLancer · 73 replies
    Just about a half-hour ago when I clicked on my shortcut to go to FreeRepublic.com, a page popped up indicating something along the lines that "QANON.com" was phishing for information on FreeRepublic, and, when I continued, the address at the top now indicates that it's "dangerous" and it has lined through the "https" part of the indentification. Is something actually going on or is this something that Google is just doing to show its displeasure with a conservative website? It's not the shortcut, because I tried coming in directly from the search engine, along with typing in "https://www.freerepublic.com" specifically. Any...

  • FreeRepublic being labeled as "Deceptive Site"

    Deceptive site ahead Attackers on qanonposts.com may trick you into doing something dangerous like installing software or revealing your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, or credit cards). Learn more ... I cannot access the forums any more, can only post, hope somebody fixes this, this could be due to an ad ? but I don't think the FR runs ads?

  • Problem when FreeRepublic.com password changed

    I changed my password. When I entered by new password for logging in, it rejected it. What happened is that my password was too long, and it truncated when I changed. But it did not warn me. I use a 'robot' for passwords, so I can have 'long passwords'. I figured out how the password was truncated (the length it needed to be). When I truncated the password, the new password worked. It is my opinion that the 'focus' software should have warned me that the password was too long.
  • Could someone help me with html formatting in a FR environment?

    I'm building a table for an FR friend and I did it the way I'd do it for my own website. It's a double table, to get an attractive border, and then a series of rows of various colors and numbers of columns. And, indeed, it's glorious on my website. But when we put the complete table into a thread or into my profile, the outer tables are completely removed by FR and the format of the rows becomes of varying lengths with missing borders around the cells, though both surrounding tables had their borders set correctly. Does this ring...

    I have a question to FReepers out there,and also the Moderators. I was recently suspended from posting for several days, TWICE for the reason that I was posting the article of authors who are banned from this site. Being suspended means you cannot even send a message to the moderator, so I was unable to ask for clarification. Had I been allowed to send a message, I would at least know the name of the author whose article was not welcome. I learned that the article of one such writer -- C. Edmund Wright ( who used to be a...

    Need FR help. Yes, I am logged on. When logged on, FR loads onto the general latest comments page rather than the latest articles/forum page. When I click on the Forum tab at the top, it loads the latest comments page. Can't load the Forum page no matter what. When I log out and go to FR, the Forum page automatically loads as it should. But when I log on, it goes back to the latest comments page and I still can't get to the Forum page not matter what. Scanned through my account page but don't see anything helpful....

  • Sorry about the continued lousy response time, but FR is still under a DOS attack

    07/29/2017 10:09:09 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 243 replies
    Wanted to avoid running a thread on this, but seeing as how it continues dragging on, guess I'd better. The DOS attacker obviously knows by now that he's hurting us. Have no idea when he/they started the attack, but we discovered it a few days ago. And John has been fighting it ever since. Says it's like whack-a-mole. Every time John gets him blocked or knocked out, he pops up again with a new modified attack. John thought he had a good solution a couple days ago, and we did enjoy one night and most of the next day with...

    FR has been completely down for a few minutes. I checked it with a "Is It Down?" website or two. Now supposedly it's up, but you can't move from one link to another. Or if it manages to get to that other link, it's after you've knit a sweater starting with a ball of yarn. What's up with FR today?
