  • I am only getting Headlines now, no article text. How do I bring it back?

    A few days ago, it appeared that someone had hacked their way into a few Free Republic accounts, then commenced to post ridiculous, often obscene posts. As a matter of caution, I logged out for a few days. However, since I have returned to the fray, I see articles by headline as before, but nothing shows any text as it usually does. Now, I'm under the Nancy Pelosi rules of expectation in that: I have to open the post to see what's in it. I can deal with it. At least I can read what's "Hot" with other posts, or...

    I've seen a number of articles lately about claiming the hospitals are full with Covid patients again. Is this true or just more fake news?

    WINNERS vs LOSERS When a winner makes a mistake, he says, "I was wrong". When a loser makes a mistake, he says, "It wasn’t my fault". A winner always gives 110% no matter how big or small the task. A loser is always "too busy" to do what is necessary and finds excuses. A winner goes through a problem. A loser goes around it, and never gets past it. A winner makes commitments. A loser makes promises. A winner says, "I'm good, but not as good as I ought to be". A loser says, "I'm not as bad as...

  • Rant about FR webmaster [vanity]

    The slur goes something like "you had one job to do", but because I'm a geek, immersed in IT and knowledgeable about webmaster things, I know it's a spoke in a wheel. But when there's a Copyright List that every responsible FReeper goes to when posting from a source which isn't familiar, there's a reasonable expectation that following what's stated on the Copyright List page is correct. I, for one, have MUCH BETTER things to do than to spend the time - repeatedly - posting something to FR only to have the message pop up "Post blocked due to copyright...

    I was with FR even before my sign up date states. Lost my password and couldn't retrieve it back then. God bless Jim Robinson but with a little effort, allowing "likes" and a little advertising, etc. FR would be worth billions.

    FreeRepublic ^ | Jan 17 | RandFan
    I am finding myself more disillusioned with politics than ever before. It's not just the stolen presidential election but the entire media is now anti-conservative and going for the jugular to smear and destroy. Every article I come across you can see it and it's pretty depressing! They have some how got this guy in office and have to rally round him and boost him. Opposition must be ridiculed/smeared and called extreme. They're even coming after services like Parler and shutting them down. I still logon to FR - perhaps the last free space on the internet - but generally...

    FreeRepublic ^ | Jan 11 | RandFan
    After Parler was shut down i've heard many people say that FreeRepublic could also be targeted especially under the Democrats. I've been thinking about it and I reckon FR should be safe... Here's why: 1) FR is a News/Links/Discussion site. It's NOT some massive social media platform. 2) FR is Moderated. Trolls and troublemakers are booted and the site complies with the law (copyright, etc) 3) Jim has been in this game for over 20 YEARS. He knows what it takes to keep the site online. That said we have no idea what the Dems have in store. I don't...

    There is no doubt that Free Republic will be a target of the Blob. They will pressure the current Internet Service Provider, if it's based in the US, to cancel service based upon alleged threats of violence uttered by some.

    So, I checked out after someone referred me to it on here hoping to spread a message of unity and conservatism but jeeez... All I got was abuse and fighting. Are they children? Younger people? F this, F that in comments to me. The don't like Rand much. Heck, I don't think they like anyone. I know this is a difficult time but I tried to reach out and point out we're on the same side but it falls on deaf ears. I like FreeRepublic because it is a more mature place. Yes there are heated debates but I...

    Sort of a combo thread here. My mother had a short outing with a friend on Sat. Her friend called Tues to say she was pos for COVID, in the hospital. Now, my mother is clearly ill and today, her doctor said to get tested tomorrow, and quarantine for 2 weeks. I and my household family were with her Sun, and I have been with her today to help with the televisit stuff, and tomorrow for the test. Again, we should quarantine and wear masks at home, etc. We are concerned generally, but especially for my mom. She is 83,...
