  • J.K. Rowling, Lexicon and Oz (Orson Scott Card Smackdown!)

    Linear Publishing ^ | 04/24/2008 | Orson Scott Card
    Can you believe that J.K. Rowling is suing a small publisher because she claims their 10,000-copy edition of The Harry Potter Lexicon, a book about Rowling's hugely successful novel series, is just a "rearrangement" of her own material. Rowling "feels like her words were stolen," said lawyer Dan Shallman. Well, heck, I feel like the plot of my novel Ender's Game was stolen by J.K. Rowling. A young kid growing up in an oppressive family situation suddenly learns that he is one of a special class of children with special abilities, who are to be educated in a remote training...

    I was trying to think of all the common phrases that are posted on virtually every thread. I am not sure if there is even a listing on here. Maybe they could be listed here. Here are some examples: We are doomed!!! It's Bush's Fault! It's Global Warming. Search is your friend. (I think this is one)

    We've received many requests from freepers requesting that other freepers not post to them. There are several problems with this. 1. It's impossible for us to enforce.2. We don't have the time to enforce these requests.3. We don't have the software to keep track of these requests.4. Thick skin helps.5. Ignore the poster, if you don't reply, they won't reply. Free Republic does not need a bozo filter, bozo filters are for wimps. Final note: Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al, would continue posting to (harassing) someone after being asked to stop. Conservative FReepers would...
  • What Makes a FReeper a FReeper?

    FR | 8-21-07 | Bob J
    I often wondered what exactly makes a FReeper a FReeper? Is it the simple act of reading articles on FR? Do you have to post articles or replies? To call yourself a FReeper do you need to engage in effective activism like writing letters to politicians, getting out in the street to carry signs, or, is being a FReeper an attitude. If so, what attitude is that? Knock yourself out.

    Language changes. This cannot be denied. Due to one person's brave words we have a new change to our lexicon. Sheryl Crow, the 'one square wonder' has single handedly wiped the way clear the future of our communication. For instance; when things are getting shakey at work you should state that if everyone doesn't work together the "Crow's really gonna hit the fan." When someone startles you, tell them you nearly "Crowed your pants." Suppose you are playing poker. Your friend fails to disguise his glee at the hand you dealt to him. While holding your chips closer than your...

    I'm reading an astonishing number of comments on Free Republic these days by posters who have joined the ranks of the anti-American left in calling for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq. Some claim to have military experience, some claim to be patriotic Americans and some claim to be smarter than the rest.These posters are joining the Murtha-Rangel-McDermott treason caucus. Oh, they say they love the troops, but their decision to abandon them in the field speaks otherwise.Three years ago, the United States led an international coalition to rid the world of one of the worst regimes on the planet.

    Welcome to Free Republic!Yesterday, I had the pleasure of writing the following:Yesterday was, by the measure of distinct posters, the busiest day ever in the history of Free Republic, as 4,282 distinct usernames posted. Fan-freepin'-tastic. This beat the previous record by a dozen or two.Even more impressive, yesterday was the busiest day in the history of Free Republic as measured by total articles + replies, with a whopping 31,153. The previous record was somewhat below 30,000.Signups had their 8th highest day ever, behind 7 consecutive days after the 2000 elections. I am happy to say that yesterday was even busier,...

    The following email is being circulated to our members by various disgruntled former FReepers: Subject: The Future of Our Free Republic Dear Fellow Free Republic Member, Many of us at Free Republic are distressed by the extraordinary level of censorship that has been so obviously going on. It is very obvious that individual posts, entire threads, and the entire work of members who have been highly regarded are disappearing into a Memory Hole. Scores of us have organized an e-mail network that is independent of the communication controls presently, and sadly, being used at our Free Republic. We have carefully...

    There are way too many non-breaking news stories being placed in breaking news. It's gotten so bad, this is in breaking news. Please, if the story has been posted once in breaking news, it doesn't belong there again unless it's a critical update. Also, don't abuse topics. A story does not need to be posted in every single topic. It does not generate more hits to your thread. Michael Jackson, Kobe Bryant, Scott Peterson, etc, are not breaking news, unless convicted. This is tabloid journalism, we are a conservative forum. Related threads can be found here.Posting Guidelines

    There have been way too many vanities. We have asked numerous times to please limit your vanities to either the General Interest (Chat) forum or to post your one line vanities on an already existing thread. Guess what, didn't work. So, we will be deleting one line vanity threads, unless it is truly news as reported by a major media outlet. We will be deleting threads misposted to news that clearly belong in the General Interest (Chat) forum. Remember, this is a conservative news forum. So, get ready, your vanity posts will be removed if you can not follow these...

Bill is a useful idiot who can't keep his mouth shut or his zipper up and Hillary is an America hating godless communist power monger. These are my personal opinions.</p>
