I didn't know this. Seems a bunch of us have been doing it.

Because more news and articles are posted here than in the news forum and many people never go to the news forum. Any more questions?

Maybe they would go to the news forum more often if those posts weren't duplicated here to begin with.

I don't know if this is directed at me, but, if you posted the link and not copied the article, this shouldn't be a violation.

Maybe everyone would be happier if some people didn't try and play forum police that were not mods.

I didn't direct it at anyone since I do it all the time along with many others in this forum.

OK hatt.
IMO a link should be provided to prove it's source.

I'm assuming from what rbinck said you can't quote the whole article even with a link. Only a "key paragraph."

I never expected a shit storm to materialize over this thread. I figured it would be a good info thread here since this forum has numerous violations according to the info rbinck gave. More proof people at HDF will fight over anything. I'm in Florida right now, it's 8:15, and it's almost dark here. Does anyone want to argue these points? The Sun is actually coming up?

I know I've been guilty of this. Thanks for posting hatt, its good too know, as I never had any idea.

So basically, as long as we cut a portion of the article out, we are fine I guess.

That, or just post our opinions on the article and what its about, then link it as recommended, for members who want to read the whole thing.

Actually, you apparently posted this at 8:11, not 8:15 (check out the time at the top of the post), so I will challenge you on that point! Liar, liar, pants on fire!

I edited the post at 8:15 I guess if you edit fast enough it doesn't show up as edited.
