Default Please do not copy and paste text from other sites

Our policy at CS and Fratching is not to copy and paste text from other sites, due to copyright issues. Links should be posted instead. Pasting a sentence or two is OK, but not the entire article. I'm posting this because we've seen an increase in posts with articles copied from other sites, sometimes in their entirety.

Sometimes the mods will be nice and find the article, and edit out the copied text and replace it with a link. However, we don't always have time to hunt down articles, so we may simply delete these posts, especially if the member posting them is a repeat offender.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact anyone on the moderating team.
Sometimes life is altered.
Break from the ropes your hands are tied.
Uneasy with confrontation.
Won't turn out right. Can't turn out right
