    Default Posting Articles

    Just a friendly reminder to everyone about the rules of posting news articles. Please dont post the entire article, instead include only a link to the article and a short (maybe a paragraph or two) summary. Its not an issue of bandwidth so much as it is an issue of copyright infringement. Some people are very good about this, but others seem to be slipping a bit. I'm going to make this a sticky for about a week so everyone gets a chance to read it. Thanks everybody.

    I have done the opposite at AD.comīs mil av forum, and - if nobody complains - intend to do the same here.

    I think its easier and more natural for ppl to read through a full article than follow links.

    I have either checked with my sources that I am ok to crosspost, or I will envelop the article in an opinion, citing the central bits offering source and author.

    Apart from this, I will take any legal responsability of Copyright infringement on myself.

    I will hold my horses until I get an answer.

    Standing by for incoming,

    Rattler
    AD.info? Rings a bell somehow...

    Eh, you can try, some people do it here. They'll probably complain and keep asking you to change it though.

    But some people get away with it.

    My favorite way. Usually there's only a sentence or two I'm commenting on. But inevitably it gets reactions that are answered in unquoted parts. So I go to the additional trouble to put a link in there. Not sure people ever bother to read the whole thing, but they can if they are willing to invest the time.
