When you open, and read a post that is obviously just a cut and paste news article, with no personal commentary from the poster attached, if you don't like or agree with the article, but yet have not research the facts for yourself, do find yourself attacking the OP for cutting and pasting? Or do you focus on the content of the post itself?

It became too popular for comfort lol!! It's not exactly the same, see in the first post, I had mentioned it was a spin off, even though it was not about a member, but rather a subject, I guess that's a no-no.

Is there a ? attached to the cut and paste?

In order for me to respond, the OP must supply some input- otherwise I might open and just move on without commenting. I have no problem with cut and paste if the intent is stimulate dialogue in one way or another-it would seem the OP would have to supply some engaging or stimulating POV in order for that to happen.

As I said in the now deleted post, I do expect the OP to at least read the stuff  before they cut and paste it.

That's fair I guess...do you apply this criteria to ALL POV?
