Dear Members,

We have amended the posting guidelines to reflect our position in regards to sharing articles on the forum. The essence has not changed, however we felt we need to further emphasize some points regarding the linking of outside articles.

This is the amended paragraph:
Do not link to an outside article without comment. This is a discussion forum. If you wish to discuss an article from outside of our forum, you may do so by linking. Please also include your own comments as to why you are linking said article to start off the discussion.
Under no circumstances should you copy most or all of outside articles and post in on the forum. If you need to quote part of an article, you must cite the source.

In short, when sharing articles, follow these simple rules:
  1. Do not copy and paste whole articles. Instead only quote some highlights. Do not under any circumstance, copy whole articles that are behind a paywall.
  2. Link to the original article.
  3. Add your own comment or question for other members.
This is to maintain the quality of the content and discussion on this forum, as well as preserving the copyright of the original authors.

Thank you.

The Moderation Team.

We have made some adjustment to the Posting Guidelines. The text in red is the new addition.

Prohibited Content

Gratuitous pictures of nudity and/or violence are prohibited.

Spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and other unwanted solicitations are also prohibited.

The posting of any copyrighted material, without the consent from the owner of the copyrighted material, is prohibited. This includes linking to sites that contain copyrighted material used without permission of the copyright holder.
