Freerepublic is like stepping back to 1995 forum software. Look, I will leave aside the political issues I have with it, but WOW. Where do they spend all that fund-raising money, sure isn't on their software.
This is a little fun. The W33 valador run on Free republic comes back with 118 hard errors, 11 warnings. Democratic underground, 23 errors 1 warning. https://validator.w3.org/check?uri=www.freerepublic.com&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0 || https://validator.w3.org/check?uri=democraticunderground.com&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0
