Folks, I really want to keep the postings intact to the extent possible. I understand folks don't like seeing their postings deleted or portions of it removed.

The site has been reviewing copyright issues, and the need to respect sources of information. Many are violating the copyright rules by extracting far too much into our postings from the source articles or posting pictures that you find on other web sites.

The proper way to bring source data into the discussion is to paraphrase the idea or concept that you want to convey as briefly as possible, but generally only a few sentences. Add the link in your posting to the sourced material.

You should be posting links to pictures not the pictures themselves.

We will be deleting postings which violate copyright rules, and we really don't want to damage the discussions. Please keep this in mind when posting.

From the Terms of Service

Instead of copying-and-pasting articles, photos, or other material you find on the Internet, you should be posting links...
The best rule of thumb, if you didn't take the photo yourself, please don't post it.

ETA:Please be aware that if the photo is found on other sites that have a general copyright notice, it will be deleted. Uploading pictures to a photo sharing site does not negate a copyright.

Please, please, please do not respond to trolls. You will lose your posts where you quote them and/or any posts that answer them because those posts will be orphaned and may not make sense to the thread.

Ignore and report.
