Hate-site FreeRepublic.com has recently stepped up its famous exclusion of Mormons, according to a whistleblower:
framreport.blogspot.com "Beginning in December 2008 and continuing up to February 2010, there were a total of 702 discussions about Mormonism on Free Republic. 144 of them or 21 percent were favorable towards the Church. These consisted primarily of "devotional" or "LDS Caucus" discussions where site rules prohibit debates or hostile expressions by non-caucus members.
"A total of 51 "neutral" discussions were found for a total of 7 percent. These were generally discussions where mention of Mormons and Mormonism were incidental, such as a political discussion about Mitt Romney or Glenn Beck. There was a considerable amount of anti-Mormon activity in these threads, but for the purposes of the survey, they were not counted as such because the intent of the the individuals initiating the topics was clearly not to attack the Church.
"That leaves us with a total of 507 discussions that were initiated by known anti-Mormons with the intention of bashing Mormons and their religion. That's 72 percent! The level of hatred, derision, mockery, and ridicule heaped upon any latter-day saint who defends their faith is incredible."
Site owner Jim Robinson has started tricks to weed out Mormons, such as moving Mormon-based discussion to breaking news categories in a bid to elicit anti-Mormon bigotry. His explanation? "If this is not breaking news of the century, I don’t know what is. Someone needs to rewrite the bible to include Apostle Joe."
Free Republic revoked my account a long time ago; I knew I wasn't welcome because of my conservative opinions. We can only wait for the elections, so FR can spread more hateful lies about Mitt Romney.
