Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Blog Pimp Edition

p>Good morning, gentle people! The“Do not send Haitian help-moneys to Obama” edition left some residual scum on the floor of the iso chamber that seems resistant to even carboranes acid, so I’ve put down some wooden pallets for the time being – please watch your step.

Well, with the coronation of Scott Brown ( or as I like to refer to him, Teabag-action Ken ) as King Of All Creation, you’d think the Freepers would be on top of the world. They’ve persevered throughout losing both houses and the Presidency, mostly over Chimpy McFlightsuit (on whom they turned like a rabid dog), and generally sat it out at the bottom of the bad-luck pile for some time now. This should be a time of great exultation for them.

Sadly, no. (not-Seb)

I think that would make an excellent legal defense in court ! Maybe “E. Pluribus Anus” could argue it himself?

What’s the worst that could happen?

That makes one of us.

To: Jim Robinson

That’s sort of a wierd thing for an ostensibly conservative non-profit organization to do. Why attack allies?

Because being associated with Free Republic is like being associated with Timothy McVeigh? Because they want to be taken seriously, and not as a offshoot of the FR nutjob factory? Just speculating here…

Yep, it’s always best to start out with your
scorched earth position first, that way you can win friends and
influence more people. Pffft…

He could have had thousands of new readers checking out his blog.

was a poster ‘NewMediaJournal’ that incessantly posted articles from
there that were actually from other sources, such as the NY Times and
the WSJ – but the poster would link back to NewMediaJournal instead of
the original source. Pretty shameless way to pimp your blog – with
someone else’s material.

Pimping one’s blog with Free Republic material? It’s an outrage! I wouldnever do such a thing!!

(remind me to sue myself later)

To: o_zarkman44

Well, the funny thing is our moderators
noticed they were violating the copyrights of publishers who had asked
us to restrict our posters to excerpts only. They were posting full
text on their site, claiming fair use, and then posting an excerpt on
FR with a link back to their blog site. Our moderators asked them to
link to the original source if they were going to do that, and they

Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.

Now we get threats. Effem.

And Salvato now has a rant up on his website
bashing FR – while keeping his ‘Freep This’ link for readers to post
directly to FR!

What a complete dolt.

Of course you realize, THIS means war.

You misspelled “Whore”.

To: Jean S

The thing is, it isn’t any different than posting the
complete thing on FR. Too bad he wouldn’t listen and decided to
threaten instead. FR has already been sued by some media over this

And lost the lawsuit.

Its’ not something that could be ignored.
