Every time a Freeper follows a link to Twitter, a demon gets its horns.
I did so to find out from from Jim why edd tide has his own Invitation Only threads.
No invite from ebb tide, you are booted.
I have repeatedly asked by PM/FM what is the policy regarding “breaking” news...with no response.
There is nothing on the pages regarding posting as to what does or does not constitute “breaking”.
When I post something in “breaking” with which the mods disagree all my posts for the next 24 hours are relegated to the hinterlands of “General Chat”.
I get it: Your forum, your rules. But PLEASE, offer some solid guidance or else remove the “breaking” option for news forum posts.
BTW, I believe you can get most Twitter content while bypassing it by going to Nitter.com.
Hear, hear. I’ve noticed this as well. And I agree it depends on the moderator on duty.
This this is been a Free Republic tradition for decades. Inconsistency.
Is Gateway Pundit posted in blogs or in news? We’ve often seen moderators publicly take posters to task for posting GP articles as news. And yet, to this day will see Gateway Pundit posted as news and as chat.
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.
To all of you....
Can I get you some cheese?
JUST. SAY. NO.
I posted a a thread around a week ago about the vote steal coming out of Italy. Signed affidavits from a whistle blower in Serbia. Affidavits came from Sidney Powell’s site. I posted in “Breaking News” got pulled and then I was trashed by “Mariner” for posting. He stated that I was in a fetal position for posting the article in “Breaking News”. This is what Free Republic has become. Same crap comes from others as they are the designated brown shirts of the site.
I joined in ‘06 and this place has become worst than Twitter. Everyone complains about the fake news but every article posted here comes from News streams across the world. One posts anything that may require further “digging” and that post is trashed. Take for example “Humblegunner”. Guys a joke. Runs around policing people that posts from blogs. Again, someone’s point of view gets whacked but posting from CNN is ok.
The hierarchy here is no different than a union shop. Your “join” date for some reason makes one smarter and more relevant than others. I have seen through the years the postings have substantially declined. Debate here has lost some brilliant posters through the infamous Zot. Any long time Freep’s know what I’m saying is true. This place has lost a lot and I mean a lot of great Patriots over the years due to heavy handed moderation.
I originally came here because there were a lot of Patriots in the fight. Now we have a majority throwing in the towel stating it’s over blah, blah, blah.
This place has become a safe zone for conservatives. A place that one can come in, scream into the garbage can, get it off your chest and say I’m doing something. Obviously there are folks here that don’t fit that category but there are a hell of a lot that do.
Everyone is up in arms about Parlor and other platforms that have been delisted. Why? What’s the difference? Parlor is privately owned and someone Zotted his platform because they didn’t like his postings. Kinda like a conservative poster that gets a zot. And I’m not talking trolls.
I was zotted in the 2012 Romney war and asked to come back for this election. Obviously I’m here (probably not long) and restarted my monthly contributions. That was a mistake.
Twitter is a sh***er
My personal policy is to never click a twatt.
That just gives communist dorsey money.
