  • How do I find out why a post was pulled? Who do I contact?

    10/19/2017 6:14:12 PM PDT · by naturalman1975 · 81 replies
    I have just had a thread pulled and I am rather baffled as to why. And I'm not sure how to even contact somebody to ask why which is why I am posting here. The reason the thread was pulled according to the post is: "Why is this in the news forum?" The answer to that question is because it was a post taken directly from an online newspaper - the Daily Mail I've been posting here for fourteen years and this is the first time I've ever seen this happen. If the rules have changed, I'm happy to follow...

  • Self-evident truth: Nazism and Communism are godless mass-murdering totalitarian ideolgies

    It's a self-evident truth that fascism, Nazism, etc., are godless, evil, mass-murdering totalitarian ideologies as all freedom loving, non-brainwashed Americans readily admit. How many millions of people must be slaughtered in the name of communism and how many times must they threaten the entire free world with total annihilation until the brainwashed democrats denounce godless Marxism as evil and anti-American? Likewise, how many millions of unborn babies will be offered on the altar of "woman's choice" before they realize abortion is an evil, godless abomination? The Nazi's were and are an evil, godless, mass-murdering totalitarian ideology. The Communists were and...

    FreeRepublic ^ | May 22, 2018 | Reno89519
    Last night around 10:30 Pacific, I posted two comments, one an embedded YouTube link (which of course didn't show up in the post), and the second, the URL to that YouTube of Trump's Saudi speech. This morning, the discussion thread is up and the comments are missing. No not that they were removed by a moderator. Never seen this before and after the recent downtime, raising this question in case anyone else has seen same. Maybe, if others are seeing comments disappear, there is an underlying technical issue?

    We've all seen pages being slow to load / partial page loads for the last couple months. This goes beyond that. Two things I'm seeing: 1) Blank pages being "served". You hit a link, and get a blank page. 2) Connection errors - This is happening when posting a comment. When posting, I get a "server connection reset" error. Is it time to swap out the hamsters running the FR servers for some fresh ones?

    Our FRiends have inspired us, made us laugh and think, and (may I say?) helped us feel a little less lonely and despondent these past eight years. For all our arguments, diversity of thought, and passion, Jim and his crew really do keep the light of freedom and constitutional consciousness alive. With this long-awaited victory, how about considering a donation to FR and a moment, now, to name and commend one or two special FRiends. Thank YOU.

    The Federalist ^ | 05/12/2016 | Robert Tracinski
    On the right, we’ve grown to pride ourselves on our greater openness to debate and ideas, on having no need to toe a Politically Correct line or crawl into a “safe space” like pampered college kids who just can’t handle hearing from anyone who disagrees with them. For myself, I am so personally dedicated to this ideal that I even perform the great personal sacrifice of reading the comments field beneath my articles. Yet somehow I wasn’t surprised to see Donald Trump supporters, those swaggering tough guys, turn one of their favorite Internet forums into a safe space where they...

    Congratulations to our presumptive nominee, Donald Trump! Great job in New York and throughout this campaign. Cruz and Kasich are now mathematically eliminated and just like all the others who were mathematically eliminated should concede and drop out so we can all unite behind our nominee and prepare to defeat the godless America-hating traitor Hillary Clinton in November. As conservatives and patriots, it's time to put bruised egos behind us, heal our differences and act united in the best interests of our nation. The media and the GOPe will try to keep us divided, of course, but we must not...

    I was surfing FR this afternoon and suddenly was unable to access any page on FR and the error stated the server could not be found. I located the IP address, 209.157.64.200, of the server and then added an entry into my PC's host file and I can now see FR again. I still do not see a DNS entry for FR, and that is interesting.
