Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.
Why not allow ads?
Do you guys still have nice cubicles and free pizza and Zima, or did the Soros money get a little tight so that you have to blog out of mom’s basement or Starbucks? What does that pay?
That’s not up to me, I don’t own FR.
Good discussion about it here.
This primary season was really ugly and a lot of people, old and new, left because of the piling on or were banned. I even left for a while. It’s going to take a long time to heal those wounds. Lots of people will never come back and have found new homes at other forums.
That’s a major reason why the donations are down hard. Another reason is because people have been cutting their budgets because of the slow economy and inflation.
The owner has to find a way to survive and I, for one, don’t begrudge the use of ads if that’s the only way.
A LOT of people aren’t welcomed here any more. That hurts donations significantly.
You don’t believe that free discussion takes place here?
Insulting FReepers is not exactly the best way to solicit funds.
You may want to reflect on why contributions are way off.
I guess that depends on your definition of free
You know that I speak my mind. What you don't know is that I have received well over a dozen messages in the past two years from freepers who said that they were afraid to post similar opinions for fear of being zotted.
That's the fact of it...many long-time freepers do not feel "free" to discuss. I believe that the pendulum will swing back but in the mean-time FR will lose good people.
Dittos to that!
If FR survives the next four years of Obama, I will be pleasantly surprised.
Try harder next time, perhaps threaten my life.
Maybe the bloggers could be hit up for a donation. :-)
