Your Opinion/Questions - All non-sourced non-news threads are posted here. This doesnt mean your one thought is a thread by itself. Lately, we have been seeing articles posted that should be comments made on the main article. Your comment/vanity article will be pulled or moved to General Interest. Vanities should be limited to the mission of Free Republic.
General interest (Chat)
Is for discussions of news and interest topics unrelated to the news forum. We will move articles unrelated to the news forum here.
To avoid duplicate posts, please search before posting.
The best method to search is to pick a key word or two from the title. If the article you are posting is, "Our 1st Quarter Freepathon is Underway! - Thread 4", start with 'Quarter' for the key word. If it is a hot topic, you might want to use two or more keywords, in this case, try 'Quarter' and 'Freepathon'. For an effective search, select 'match all words' and select 'order by post time'.
