We'd like to take this opportunity to ask that members adhere to our Copyright Rule, in particular Rule 2a as below;
Copyrighted material from other websites, newspapers, magazines and journals are not allowed to be posted. You are permitted to post a summary of an article or quote several lines of it and a link to the full story, but not the full article. Violations of this policy will result in the deletion of your post or thread.

When posting news, articles or any Copyright Material please ensure that you
- Do not copy and post an entire article
- Make sure that a brief fair use excerpt is used
- Ensure that a link is provided to the external content provider
- Credit the Author or Photographer
We have noted an increase in deletions due to Copyright violation and have posted this in several forums. Deletion of a thread due to Copyright can lead to good discussions being lost, something we and the overall membership seek to avoid.
If you would like to discuss the issue or seek clarification please refer to the linked thread in the Site Related forum for discussion or feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your time and assistance.
