Although it is a long post and somewhat complicated to read, there is the point of copyright that should be considered, especially when the site advertises a lawyer of copyright, which is directly above post 7. I believe that if something is copied from a piece that holds a copyright symbol or clearly states that it is a copyright, then the source should be quoted. If the post is quoted from an article by an author then that author should be quoted. Not difficult - just a case of common decency!

Modified: it would be useful to hear other opinions

It's not that complicated a read. During my research there was evidence to say that work does not actually have to have the copyright symbol on it either.

Anyway, I'm glad you agree with me

In any event, whatever the ethics or legalities, the site's rule number 12 should be followed .

I began this thread yesterday but it disappeared, without explanation, overnight.



I agree it is somewhat irksome. In a perfect world ALL your posts and threads would disappear overnight

(Just passing through..... )



passing through . . . pinworms, threadworms, flatulence, poo, AEnigma . . . they all pass through



But I actually think this is quite rude -



It was a rude answer to a rude interjection. It made me laugh I must admit Maybe this is why respected members are leaving in droves

Thanks for contributing LL.
I also want to know views on the assertion made by a member : that it is common practice to reproduce work on this site without acknowledging the source, and leading people to believe it is one's own work.

Sorry - I haven't been contributing to this thread before today but could you tell me exactly WHERE teaschip1 claimed that post was her own work or do you mean that by omission she led people to THINK it was her own work? Because - quite frankly - I couldn't give two hoots who wrote it. You all clearly have nothing better to do with your time than gripe at each other all day long.

Is that a gripe?

All the facts of the matter are recorded on this site. Happy reading

Copyright is actually a very important issue and should not be taken lightly. What happened here may just be the thin end of the wedge. Whilst it's the site owners who carry the risk and may even be paying insurance premiums to cover themselves, Moderators, SHOULD give a hoot.

I'm sure Admin will come along at some point and clarify everything, then we can put our minds at rest about the legalities, though sadly not the ethics.

Don't forget Rule 12 Moderators

Karpusqueen you are currently complaining about teaschip1's post in 3 different threads - isn't this just a tiny bit excessive? Are you going for some sort of record? :-S
