Here’s where I object.

Humble has been rude, obnoxious, etc. For *years*. I’ve never seen or been directed to a JimRob declaration that Humblr is arbiter of all things blog.

It’s about time he did so. One way or the other.

Lightman, thank you for the help. I first joined freerepublic during the early days (I think 1997) but changed my email address and name to tarpit after the bailouts.

There is a strange tik-tok account (ok, don't laugh, even though you probably might be) https://www.tiktok.com/@rabertpetrosian?lang=en. This account seems to post videos that are up front and personal to Trump. The account got more activate in the last couple of days. I am trying to figure out if there is any legitimacy here.

There is talk that Pelosi and Shumer are the ones who do not trust the NG. Nobody has explained why the NG is here in the first place. Everything just seems out of order.

During Trumps inauguration about 200 people were arrested for rioting. Given the lockdown in Washington I wonder if 200 people could even get in.

It just seems like there is much more to this tory then we are being told.

Respectfully, Tarpit.

I think JimRob is still a Democrat.

It’s not just Twitter or whether it’s Breaking or Vanity....I can post something that is a vanity and be following what I assume is the rules and get booted even when posting under chit chat and then 2 threads older or newer there is the exact same type of vanity comment and it is allowed. I have no issue with being booted but there never seems to be an explanation that I can find and when I ask the moderator I never get a reply. It does seem to be at the whim of the moderator and not really consistent.

Can be frustrating. I don’t think any of us have a gripe about it if that is the decision but it would be really nice to know why so we don’t make the same mistake again.

This thread will probably be zotted...

Humblegunner is many things and I’ve found him to be persistent and effective. Sometimes he’s too quick to judge but quite often he’s dead right.

Jopefully this thread does not get the Zot!. It is fair to ask an admin moderator for guidance here. We all are grown ups (well, most of us are), and we know it some of it is based on the whims of the current moderator. That is OK. It is respected.

On the other hand, and again with all due respect, just a little guidance would go a long way.

My apology for the horrific grammar. That should have been “Hopefully”.

I posted a thread with a link to Twitter. It got pulled. Twitter is our enemy because of Jack. It would be nice to have Admin Moderator post a thread about it. But yeah it makes sense. We do not need to give Twitter hits.

On one hand I fully get that and support it. On the other hand I think it makes us no better then them. There are some incredible stories and videos on twitter that if we ban, we are more like Jack than not.

If we start by banning twitter then what? Do we ban other sights? What is the the line that a site cannot cross?

Banning a site is both understood on one level, and deplorable on another. I am not sure what the balance should be, but a clear statement about policy from an admin moderator would definitely be helpful.

If you reference twitter than at least reference the article the twitter comment is relating to. Otherwise it’s just twitter mumbo jumbo regardless of the poster.

It was only recently that people started posting twitter comments ‘for a thread’ of it’s own.....which would be better put in a thread which is already a topic being discussed.

Twitter accounts are not always as they appear as we know...and you really can’t confirm them in any way unless they’re references their source......so they tend to be wild goose chases if you’re looking for the facts.

I’d prefer twitter comments be posted on thread articles already discussing the topic......at least we can scroll by easily and know that it’s just a quote from whoever.

To the best of my knowledge, JR was a Democrst some years ago. I don’t know if that’s changed.

Twitter needs to be under blogs.
