FREEST? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!? That is not a legitimate word. Thats like saying "bestest" or "most fastest". The obly way to say "most free" is as is; most free. FUCKING IDIOTS —This unsigned comment was added by 74.243.231.200 (talk).

What on earth gave you that idea? The word is completely standard and has been used by our best writers. Ƿidsiþ 19:15, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Compare google books:"freest" with google books:"most free" — the former is over twice as common as the latter according to that search engine. Bestest and most fastest are disanalogous, because best and fastest are already superlatives; freest is like best and fastest, whereas most free is like most good and most fast. It is a more-or-less hard-and-fast rule of English grammar that monosyllabic adjectives legitimately form comparatives and superlatives by suffixation with -er and -est, respectively. Your rude and fallacious objection has no basis.  (u):Raifʻhār (t):Doremítzwr﴿ 19:21, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
