Enough Freeper Postings Already !!!

I come here to get some real news from honest liberals, not wade through
postings telling me what some Hitler loving freeper thinks.

Can we please stop posting what the freepers think ?

If I want to know what they are talking about I will go to their website and
read their insane postings.

8. What Say You Skinner ?
Edited on Thu May-06-04 02:38 PM by stewert
I think Skinner should ban freeper postings.

Who wants to read what a bunch of nuts have to say, I do
admit I look around over there about once a month. But I
do not make postings about what they think or what they
have said.

I really don't care what they say about anything, when I do
go there it's to laugh at their insanity.

36. If you don't want to see it, ignore it. But if DUers want to, let them.
It is in our interest to see what news makes the freeps implode; it gives us a gauge on current thinking of the Bush base. When they go nuts, as Bush appears to be doing, we (Dems) can adjust our strategy accordingly, if necessary, to apply maximum pressure.

5. Hitler loving freeper?
If this is in response to the locked thread, I thought it was pointed out there that freepers are in the 'support sharon's policies in israel 1000%' camp, and liberals that were in the 'let's at least *try* to be fair' group.

:shrug:

10. Hitler = Bush = Hitler Loving Freepers

My posting is in response to all the threads telling us to look at what some
freeper said.

I say no, and stop it. Not here in this forum.

The Hitler reference is about Bush and how he uses the same propaganda
tactics Hitler used. Bush is just like Hitler, as far as how he uses propaganda.

I also wrote an article about it about a year ago, check it out.

George W. Bush is Becoming More Like Hitler Everyday

http://www.oreilly-sucks.com/hitlerbush.htm

I did not read the other thread you are referring to, and I don't care if they
support Sharon or not. They worship bush like Nazi robots, bota bing, bota boom,
they are Hiter loving freepers, lol.

So the freepers worship Bush and he is just like Hitler.

Get it ?

13. As apparently the lone contrarian here
I find the freeps mildly amusing. If you don't want to read the threads, don't read 'em. Nobody's putting a gun to your head. I dono't have the patience to wade through the entire gutter over there, so I appreciate it when somebody puts up "highlights" here.

If you don't, just don't open the thread.

presto! gone. I have used the little x for most of the threads showing the abuse pictures (I saw them once and that was revolting enough) and most of the freeper discussion threads.

17. It happens everytime something major goes down
I agree with you. If I wanted to read what Rush Limbaugh said I would go to his site or turn on the radio. Neither of which I have any intention of doing and I wouldn't want to listen to them here either.

I really wish their posts would sink like rocks. But that's our fault too for feeding them.

All I can do is keep hitting alert but it is becoming epidemic.

25. I'm in an argumentative mood, so I'll say.....
sometimes its helpful to know what the morans are saying.

I suggest clearly labeling all such threads, so that those who don't want to open them can pass. Also, please label all links to Drudge and so forth so that we don't accidentally crash our computers visiting a site we don't want to visit.

Other than warnings and labeling, I say post away! I don't believe in self-censorship to the extent that we ignore what the other side is saying. Lately it has been fairly amusing to read their wild spins anyway....

30. Yardwork & Others.........

I do not want to censor you or anyone, I have no problem with you or anyone
going to the freeper site and reading their insane postings.

I am just saying we should stop asking other DU members to go look at their
insane postings.

Bota Bing, Bota Boom, case closed.

If you want to visit the freeper site more power to you, just don't waste board
space asking other people to go read their insane crap.

Got it ?

Good, I hope so.

37. But don't pump him up.
I know my enemy by reading what people writing in reputable places say about them. I don't really want to patronize their sites.

Sure I could listen to or read their every word, but why would I want to waste precious hours of my life on that? After reading 4 or 5 book reviews about Ann Coulter's books, I knew they weren't worth buying, because the reviewers quoted her and made specific arguments about her books. I certainly don't want to put money in her pockets or read every last slimy word she's written.

It's good to know about "thine enemy," but I'm not going to help them get rich, spread hate, or call me a traitor.

39. Since the admins here have it so easy :)
I'd propose a simple solution. Once X-number of people click the little X to dissappear the thread, it should be automagically removed.

Send me the access to the source and I'll implement it :)

42. This is a crummy solution
Because basically it's the tyranny of the majority. If some people are interested in something why shouldn't they be allowed to discuss it? Just don't look at it yourself.

49. Well, if you look a little bit above
Apparently there are bunch of freepers here already, despite our best efforts.

Well, if we democratically decide to adopt your solution, I'd stick around; but I don't agree with it. It's one thing to shut out conservatives (so we can discuss things without having to defend the existance of liberals), but to shut out liberals who post things we don't like to see; well I don't like it.

Of course there are a couple of options; one let people have the option to turn this system off. If I don't like it, I will see all the posts I want to. If someone else wants to sign up for it, they can get the posts edited out.

The other is the sensitivity of the system. Should a post be made invisible/deleted after 10 people make it invisible? 50 people? 100 people? 500 people? If one sets it too high only the most offensive posts will disappear. If one sets it too low, well than any group of people can shut down a post they don't like.

Anyway I don't know how practical these ideas are from a programming stance

56. One solution
which I don't think can actually be implemented but here goes. Access to the site without cookies. Then we can view and contribute to the site without the fear of having our computers attacked at least.

The other is that we have posters who come on and brag about being conservative and they still get to stay. That should change.

Other than that we ourselves should just not reply to those threads and let them sink.

44. My two cents
I have to say that there are lots of people who are fascinated by certain figures on the right wing. I run a website ( http://politicalcomment.blogspot.com ) which deals with debunking right wing commentary, and whenever I do a post on Ann Coulter or Rush Limbaugh my hits spike; whenever I talk about Rush or Ann Coulter here more people go over and look at my site.

So while I understand the argument that we should focus on our issues rather than on what other people think about us; the fact is that a lot of people are interested in reading these kinds of stories.

45. Problem Solved
When posting a freeper comment, we can put FP or something like that in the subject line. Then if you guys don't wanna read it, then it will save you the waste of your time.

I think some freeper posts are valuable. But I can understand the other side. After all, we are not...freepers.

51. They should be publicly humiliated and laughed at on this board.
Edited on Fri May-07-04 01:21 PM by gore-is-my-president
They shouldn't be allowed to get away with their hateful spewings.

They take OUR posts and post them around in order to try to embarass us - so why shouldn't we do the same?

Don't open the threads if you're so lilly-livered!!!

And we'd better keep up with what those sickos are up to because we need to fight against those mf'ers.

I also think it's good for their fellow freeps (who are posting on this board and also lurking) to see that their sick attitudes are not ok and that at least SOME pople don't agree with them.

It's called negative reinforcement.

55. You built a whole website dedicated to O'Reilly.
For someone who doesn't want to read about what freepers think, you've sure dedicated a lot of time and energy to O'Reilly.

Since I don't actually see any posts about freepers on the 1st page of GD, I think you are way overexaggerating the problem.
