Free Republic Down For Fourth day

Free Republic crashed four days ago and is still not back at this writing.  Some Freepers have taken to the site’s Facebook page to question where all their money goes as the site runs quarterly “Freepathon” donation drives.  Sample comment:

I have been a long time supporter of FR. It is times like these that are very frustrating to witness. An operation that brings in this much money in 4 quarterly donation drives should not crash for days or hell even hours. I mean no disrespect here and I have been a Freeper since 1999. Jim something has to change here. These kinds of things have happened before and FR is just too popular and big to be down this long. It hurts credibility and we can’t afford that.
