Here's the skinny. Go ahead and post it. Blogs are a dime a dozen. We all know that. If it's newsworthy, and an obscure blogger posted it, it'll eventually end up in news. We don't limit blogs to blog only. We've put articles in blog only to shortly realize, this is big news. It's not easy, what's legit news, what's just opinion. But, eventually, the cream will rise to the top. If you're adamant about a thread, send us off a note, we'll review it. 9 times out of 10, we'll move it to news. We aren't Nazis, as the trolls would have you think. We see a lot more than the average poster, even the poster who's here 24-7. But, we know when a developing hot story is in the works, and we try to credit the blogger who first posted it. Hope this helps.
Like when you moved recently a modest 're-title' post request from me into breaking news, +8000 views later? ;-)
Thanks for all the kind background info. I'm a huge fan of The Belmont Club -- that blog has war news and analysis that's light years ahead of the MSM. I like to post it here at FR to share it, and get other views.
FR is a really wonderful place -- thanks in large measure to the folks behind the scenes who keep it all running smoothy. Great work.
Hey, that helps!
