Error Code: DLG_FLAGS_SEC_CERT_DATE_INVALID Has anyone encountered this? It keeps logging me out repeatedly. It seems that the website security certificate expired today. Please confirm. Thanks.

    After lurking for a several months, I figured more folks would hear my responses if I joined and posted rather than shouting "Close your tags!" at the computer screen. So I joined under my first screen name, which is still there. (Don't tell Jim Thompson). Excerpt. Read more at A couple years later I wanted my full name as my screen name and didn't realize that I could just ask Mr. Thompson to change my original screen name and let me keep my sign-on date, so I opened a new account in 2002 (don't tell him that, either). So...

    Moderator pulled my post about being in Facebook jail for commenting about the poisonous products China sends us. I posted in general/CHAT and nowhere else. Reason for pulling: “I stubbed my toe.” Do we now have Chinese trolls with moderator permissions? As bad as Facebook.

  • being displayed as a "dangerous site" on my computer

    11/03/2018 1:56:24 PM PDT · by BlueLancer · 73 replies
    Just about a half-hour ago when I clicked on my shortcut to go to, a page popped up indicating something along the lines that "" was phishing for information on FreeRepublic, and, when I continued, the address at the top now indicates that it's "dangerous" and it has lined through the "https" part of the indentification. Is something actually going on or is this something that Google is just doing to show its displeasure with a conservative website? It's not the shortcut, because I tried coming in directly from the search engine, along with typing in "" specifically. Any...

    I changed my password. When I entered by new password for logging in, it rejected it. What happened is that my password was too long, and it truncated when I changed. But it did not warn me. I use a 'robot' for passwords, so I can have 'long passwords'. I figured out how the password was truncated (the length it needed to be). When I truncated the password, the new password worked. It is my opinion that the 'focus' software should have warned me that the password was too long.
  • Could someone help me with html formatting in a FR environment?

    I'm building a table for an FR friend and I did it the way I'd do it for my own website. It's a double table, to get an attractive border, and then a series of rows of various colors and numbers of columns. And, indeed, it's glorious on my website. But when we put the complete table into a thread or into my profile, the outer tables are completely removed by FR and the format of the rows becomes of varying lengths with missing borders around the cells, though both surrounding tables had their borders set correctly. Does this ring...
