Title: Just A Little Reminder
Post by: admin on February 20, 2012, 12:55:07 PM
Our regular members know this, but for the new ones, a point about links.
All qouted posts from other sites need to be linked.
By this, I mean to the original source, not a blog or another forum.

And while were on the topic of forums and blogs, we are in direct competition with them, so Do Not post links to either of these, they can do their own advertising.

As an example, if you find a story on Free Republic, look closely, the poster included a link, follow it until you find the original source.
If you can't find an point of origin, then you didn't search hard enough. (one exception Grumpy Old Cripple)

This is not necessarily policy, but rather Copy Right Law.
As to blogs, the same applies, find the original source, otherwise you're probably posting anothers opinion piece.
Be original, post your own opinion and let someone else link back to us.

We are no doubt one of the best forums on the web, only because of the combined expertise and experience of our members, of whom deserve all the credit.
Many people come here for facts and opinion, and rightly so, we are the go to forum for the truth.

I know this because of searches that have produced some of our posts on other forums.

That might be a bit of a atretch.  Or else not many people are interested in the "truth."

I am not accusing anyone of lying.  I am saying if this is the "go to" place for truth, and maybe 20 members and 120 "guests" are on line, at most, at any one time, then out of a gazillion people on the web there don't seem to be many coming here for "truth."  Relatively speaking, that is.

We are not so much an opinion site as we are a factual site.
Ive received PM asking for permission to repost some of our content on other sites.
Here is one I got just the other day.
Granted this one wants my help, but just the same, its typical of many people out there.

We could use your voice there. I repost some of the stuff you post here. I can't stand the liberals there, driving me nuts, they are soooooo wrong and they can't see the truth.
Help me.
And I did join to help him, but that was three days ago and they have yet to approve my entry.
No wonder they have problems getting posters, most just aren't that patient.

Beaux, this is getting old, either debate politics (if thats even possible), or don't come here at all.
This forum was started to avoid this childish lib shit, and yet here you are.
Go back to the sand box where this passes for liberal intellect, and leave the adults alone.

Actually I have not laid a glove on a single conservative.  I am one myself.  I have cleaned the clocks of a few conservatards, though.  I will plead guilty to that.

If only Elmer could avoid the cheap shots which prove he lies about his being a conservative. The cracks about Sarah Palin (who was TWO YEARS AGO but the brain-deads still can't stop obsessing about her). Then the metronome-steady clicketyclack of hate against the one TV news outlet which does not spew Obamagasms 24/7.

He's not fooling anyone. He proves regularly that leftists are liars and don't care who sees them do it.

I had never even HEARD of Sarah Palin until McCain announced she'd be joining his ticket. The way the national news media turned on a dime and reversed itself about the goodness of women in politics, and launched the sickening attacks not just on Palin but particularly Trig and Bristol, I figured she must be better than just some racist numbskull like "Clean and Articulate" Biden.

That didn't make me a McCain supporter, although I would have cheerfully voted for Palin for President compared to the enemy-appeasing, Stockholm Syndrome candidate she was backing. That didn't change, the more McRINO kept talking.

But politics are politics. Brokered conventions haven't happened in ages for the GOP (dammit). McRINO lost. The Islamic Idiot won. 

But then that election came and went, and I moved on, watching as the knee-jerkers and halfwits bitterly clung to their thirdhand memes and tired tropes they only dimly understood. The way these dolts held on to their hate told me more than anything else about where they wanted America to go.

Elmer and his ilk are bitter and they are clingers. Sore winners, one and all, unable to get past what they're told to think (and do).

As for Fox...I seldom go to its site and cut off all TV several years ago, so I don't watch it over the air, either. If I wanted GOP handouts, I'd send $5 to that party and would be on their mailing lists forever.

I am a majority of one who regularly contributes to this forum. If the bosses here ever bothered to identify the daily number of individual posters here, they would also have to include folks who don't care much for political debate but are interested in other topic-boards offered here. We are not alone in this goldfish bowl, though the Poli Board crowd all seem to think so.

That said, do I post much off this particular CPF board? Not really. I'm just pointing out things aren't nearly so bleak as you paint things, Elmer.

Visitors (regular lurkers of just fly-bys) *ARE* very high. And mean old loudmouth me is repeatedly asking, when are they gonna step up and exercise their right to be heard? Yeah, I beat these lurkers mercilessly about that one. If I'm only one of say 20 content providers (as you say), I think it's fair to ask others to share that burden. Aside from the other mean loudmouth bullies who also ask for lurkers to stop lurking and start posting.

There are more divisions to the political pie than formal names like Libertarian, Independent and the like, yet both these and others would fall under the conservative mantle. Establishment GOP folks would be hard-pressed to find any fans here, true. But they can definitely agree we are even less kind to liberals, and to the Democratic Party they support.

It's the differences and nuances within the conservative penumbra which should rightly draw others out of lurking, if only to present and debate their views.

Now tell me I'm wrong. Just be ready to debate it!

Well, at least I waited almost exactly a month before I again spammed the joint with my sad refrain. I don't have access to the awesome and unlimited powers bestowed upon you as owner. It's your guess better than mine WHERE they're from, but without their signing in, We Shall Never Know as to their WHY.

If you're right and they're students, then no matter how we break it to them, any facts of real life we lay upon them will be seen as vicious unprincipled lies. That ties in with whatever their professors told them, which I believe was also your point.

Ah, academia. As a survivor of that cloistered surreal mind-set, I assure you, learning what is REALLY what can be a frightful shock to some of our sheltered college kids. Golly wow, will they resist our benevolence and guidance!

But the teacher won't enjoy it any more than you enjoy challenges to your politics.  And unlike you, their teacher gives them a grade that sticks with them the rest of their lives.  Extremists, by definition, whether libtard or conservatard, are intolerant and generally uncivil to those with whom they disagree.  This board offers plenty of evidence to support that contention.

Challenge my politics? :lol: :lol: :lol:
Better bring an army libtard, as you call yourself, you're going to need a lot of help.

How ironic, spell check says libtard should be spelled as billiard, which is rather appropriate when you consider how I smack you all over the table every game, my little Cue ball.
