The author should at least decide how to spell his name.
It was excerpted. Did you not know what the little “...” in the middle meant?
Who is the guy in the middle doing the facepalm?
I’ve seen at least four spellings in various newspapers...
It almost doesn’t matter- he “speaks” for the world :)
Yes, that you didn’t excerpt it enough.
I want to give another speech,but all my translators committed suicide!
Two sentences and about fifty words is “too much”? Is there a 25 words or less rule?
Seriously, I’m happy to follow the rule. Just tell us what it is. Give us a number.
I’ve seen his name spelled with a K, a G, and a Q. No one seems to know. Lost in translation I guess.
So why didn't you tell us this in 1988 you amoral, opportunistic, bastard? You're REALLY no better than Khadafy, are you?
In the same article?
Obama should be impeached, tried for treason and brought to justice.
Why post a link to a blog that did nothing but copy a piece of the original article. There was no other information or commentary.
(and the source of the multiple spellings)
How about D-I-C-K-W-E-E-D?
Isn’t that the one where “someone(s)” knocked off Rep Patton (yes, a relative of Gen Patton) and which Americans (so-called) now no longer have any remembrance...
Moammar Gadhafi makes Keith Richards look like a super model.
There is no link to the original at the blog. How is anybody supposed to know?
will explain everything. Short version, Gaddafi’s name is spelled with a letter we (thankfully) don’t have: qaf. Transliterations vary, as indeed pronunciations vary in the Arabic-speaking world. Same with Koran/Quran/Qu’ran.
There is a link. Click on the words “New York Post.”
More to the point, however, I would respectfully submit you just changed the subject.
Originally you said I didn’t excerpt enough. Now you’re saying it’s a failure to include a link.
Again, I don’t want to over excerpt. So, please, just tell us what the word/sentence limit is.
Since we haven’t heard from MooMar in 2 days...did he fly to DC and take up residence in the Lincoln Bedroom?
Articles from sources governed by the FR Excerpt or Provide Link Only Guidelines must be manually-excerpted to 50% of content, or automatically-excerpted to 300 words or less, or linked only, whichever applies.Oh, and no blog-pimping if all you are doing is ripping off a news article posted elsewhere.

“Moammar Gadhafi makes Keith Richards look like a super model”
Wonder if he ever dated Helen Thomas?
this is also at Hot Air - Michelle Malkins site) there former Libyan foreign Minister has stated this to a Swedish Newspaper check it out there if there is any confusion of whom or what just trying to help with the news that is breaking
Thank you. I see that the article was 108 words and I posted 58 words of same. I apologize.
and no blog-pimping if all you are doing is ripping off a news article posted elsewhere.
I prefer to say “Where’s Dildo?”
Gadafi, Kadafi, Quodophe, Gowdofi, Kadowfi, ...
We should have a contest for who can spell his name the most interesting.
Mine would be
Gawdawfi...as in Gawd Awful.
And, I really wonder, How Did Nostradamus Spell It??
I prefer Kadaffy Duck.
Gadhafi's escape plan involves passing himself off as Bob Dylan.
Note to self. Ping Thackney on all threads that cite blogs since he/she is obviously incapable of not clicking on threads that don’t interest him/her.
My interest is in keeping Free Republic to best source of information for the topics that interest conservatives.
If you want to use Free Republic to promote a blog that steals content from someone else, expect some flak.
Quit picking on Ghudaughphae.
He can’t help his name.
Variety is the spice of life...
His face is melting.
I think it has been part of the Libya disinformation nonintelligence agency agenda for decades to keep infidels confused.
Yes, that's why nearly every thread is a link to another site.
In fact, I may be wrong but I believe that part of the legal defense that FR has used over the years to justify excerpting stuff from copyrighted sources is that FR sends traffic to those other, copyrighted, sites.
Either way, if you really cared about the exchange of information I doubt you'd be so upset about whether it came from a blog or, I dunno, the "highly reliable" New York Times or CBS.
In fact (again) I might be wrong but one of FR's finest moments was back in 2004 when the now-hated "blogs" were the first sites to figure out that CBS had forged the Bush National Guard memos.
Boy, too bad we didn't have your view of blogs back then. We might have gotten a President Kerry.
A link to the information source, not to some middleman trying to scam web hits from someone else’s reporting.
from copyrighted sources
Key word there, sources.
I am more interested in Jim Robinson opinion of blogs, thanks anyways.
I have no complaint if a good conservative blogger posts his own material to FR, not as an excerpt to drive hits and discussion back to his blog, but rather to impart useful information to OUR readers and to promote and join in on the discussion and conservative activism HERE on FR.
If a blogger cant or refuses do that, and if he constantly complains or fights with our participants over it, then Id just as soon he doesnt post here. Its not my job to make his content or his presentation or cooperation acceptable to our readers. Thats his job. And if he cannot do it or refuses to do it and continues posting brief excerpts only and obviously attempting to draw away our participants while loudly complaining about it, then I have no sympathy for his complaints and the more apt I am to ban his account and blog.
Furthermore, Im not big on rules. You wont see me posting rules for bloggers. The rules for bloggers on FR are the same as the rules for everyone else. If you are a good conservative activist and are willing to work with US on OUR goals and causes and not against US, then youre welcome to post to FR. But unless we say otherwise your blog material should be posted to our bloggers forum and it would be best if you do not excerpt your own material and if you would actually join in on the discussion here on FR. Were not really that interested in driving OUR traffic to YOUR blog. But if our readers see that you post useful information then they might start reading your site and thats fine by me.

Filled all my summer gas cans today.
87 regular is $2.99/9 here.
LOL no kidding.
Like the entire world hasn’t known that since 1988.
Did they think that we bombed the snot out of him just as a little game?
The ethanol in fuel doesnt age well at all.
Might want a few cans of stabilizer
