I know that we have had several new members who came here from the Daily Paul while Michael Nystrom upgrades his site.

Welcome to Liberty Forest and please continue coming here to discuss liberty related issues even after the Daily Paul is back up again.

Thanks for checking us out.

Thanks RPF'rs!
I love how decentralized we are. One site goes down but we still have brothers and sisters in liberty keeping it a live all over the net. You rock, thanks guys!

Yes, I admit it...I am one of the Daily Paul "refugees" who has decided to check out your website. I have been on DP, and active in the movement, for about 43 weeks now...so I am still a newbie. It's been a long three days without the Daily Paul!

I like how there are people who only use DP, and people who only use RPF.

Yeah, I've never checkout out Daily Paul except when someone links to it.

I've checked this site 1-10 times a day everyday since I discovered it late 07.

I only use RPFs. I just didn't like the format of DP.

And I think anything that gets posted there is also posted here, for the most part.

I believe we are all of one mind so it is nice to visit. Daily Paul is easier for me, an "old woman" to navigate. More user friendly. But, I do like how well organized everything is here. ;)

Newest version of Drupal is all I know.

I've checked out DP from time to time, but only recently registered to weigh in on some of the Rand Paul threads. Welcome DPers! :)

The old Daily Paul was Drupal based wasn't it?

I started out on Daily Paul but didn't like the format of the site. I eventually found this place through the Googles. Ive been here about two years now and check the site about fifteen times a day.

I bounce back and forth between the two. First found DP and then learned of the Liberty Forest. Both sites have unique personalities and I enjoy both. I look forward to the day when we can't even keep track of the variety of liberty loving forums out there!

I've always preferred RPF to DP. I finally left the latter when I forgot my password.

Ah good to know what the new members are about. I tend to look sideways at new members and watch for troll behavior. Guess I can let my guard down for a little while.

Welcome!

I welcome my fellow Daily Paul refugees to Ron Paul Forums.

Welcome Daily Paulers! I think the only difference between here and there, is that there are more Voluntaryists/An-Caps over here :p

Hope you have a good time over here!

I always wondered if anybody actually found RPF through its two or three CNN appearances back in the day :d

I don't think it fits with the style of the movement to welcome the DPer's, or not at least without some really hairy ideological dispute which ends up with the alienation and subsequent trashing of people's reputations.

It's not that I don't like DP, it just doesn't feel like home without an argument is all I'm saying.

Well FU! LOL! There...we have a dispute!

Thank you RPF's peeps for having us. I have been a RPF's member forever, but actually like the fast moving pace of DP so I spend most of my time there.

Both sites are excellent and I like the more logical format of RPF, but really enjoy the craziness of the DP.

Welcome to all. At least we still have a forum to talk while Michael and the database guys get it all worked out.

To freedom and liberty my fellow brothers and sisters!

I check out RPF now and then, both DP and RPF are the best places on the net to keep up to date on the current goings on.

I've been a member of the DP for more than 2 years. I used to post quite a bit on the DP but lately ALL of my posts get the pink screen saying that the mods have to review my posts before they will actually post them. They all got posted eventually and many made page 1. I wrote Michael about it and he said all my posts went to the Spam box. He said this will not happen when the new site comes online.

And as newbitech pointed out, we are are getting a site upgrade and it will look awesome. I know we have screen shots around here some where.

Welcome DPers.

Daily Paul is good for staying updated on Ron Paul issues and RPFs is for discussions.

and it doesn't look any different.

When does our upgrade come? It looks so much better.
