Skip to comments.I REALLY need to understand the rules at FR....ADMIN please clarify

It appears that I post something --I make sure to INCLUDE its source...it is NOT offensive or obscene--and you immediately remove iit....( in this case a portion of a thread i found illuminating from Hillaryclintonforum.net) this happens constantly....and is very frustrating....the "free" in free republic does not appear to hold---perhaps a clarification of your increasingly rigid rules would help?
The parameters are so narrow some good content is being unilaterally struck....PLEASE EXPLAIN so that i can contribute in a way that allows my points to be seen.
And a reminder to everyone that AP threads are shot on sight.
great way to intensify interest in your thread! A lot better than the usual BTT.
When you post something any old place on the forum, the mods are going to move it to the part of the forum where it belongs (with some annoyance), and it will seem to you that the post has been pulled when it’s only been moved.
Snickered with glee at that one!!
Thanks, that help solve the mystery :-)
( still would like a bit of instruction about what does and does not make the cut...like that ‘no AP content’ thing, did not know)
fyi/tip : If the source is a Blog(or not a real news source) - which that one is - it should be posted in Bloggers&Personal forum. If you post to that Forum, it will probably show up here in the News forum for a brief time and then be moved over to Bloggers.
Hope that helps
Any old-timers out there remember all the forums named "Whitewater?" Ah, memories.
Even if it's titled, "Bikini Model Falls into Vat of Jell-O."
that’s how I found FR in the first place. We had been clipping articles from any newspaper we could find them in, mostly Washington Times, for years and sharing them with friends and family in the face of the general news neglect at the time. Then, typed in www.http/ Whitewater. com,and there came FR. Found out Alamo Girl had such an archive I was wasting my time with the scissors.
Yeah, that’s what happens. I forget sometimes too. So, I have to try to remember to switch over to the forum it should be posted in first.
What would A+Bert say about this .... and how long would it be after he said it would he be banned ....... again?
With A+Bert, it depended on the time of day, if you know what I mean.
Start with these:
“And a reminder to everyone that AP threads are shot on sight.”
Not sure I get the rationale behind that one. Rules is rules, I guess.
did he cross the line at .15 or .20, and could you set your watch by it?
I don't think you need to understand the rationale behind it, it's an order from the Captain.
