Warning about copy-paste





Bikerman
I've noticed quite a few 'copy-paste' postings appearing in the science forums. This won't do at all. Simply copying a chunk of text from another site and posting it here as your own is not within the TOS. Use quote tags, acknowledge the site the material comes from, and add something of your own. Otherwise I will simply delete any such posting and issue a warning to repeat offenders.

If you don't know how to quote third-party material properly:
enclose QUOTE in square brackets at the start of the copied passage
enclose /QUOTE in square brackets at the end of the copied passage
Be sure to add your source as an http reference at the end of the posting or passage.


Here is how it should look (thanks to James007 for the visual aid).
