This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

They want me to delete all the prior postings as well. This wasn't a generic letter, they named specific infractions and consequences.

Not surprising, it was only a matter of time. Hopefully people actually follow these rules...might be a good idea to make the topic title in all caps so people would be more inclined to read the thread.

Well at least we know they read the site!

I'm guessing if you share your newspaper with someone they'll go after you too....

doesnt need to be in caps, there just needs to be a permanent sticky saying how articles should be posted. Yea yea, spare me the "we should all know the rules" routine, clearly some people don't, people forget, and for newer people they might not catch on right away.

You can't quote articles in forums that are free to the public anyways? Just curious what the reason for that is. Credit is given to the writers, papers, etc.. NJdevs.com isn't claiming it as their own. I don't see the issue.

It doesn't matter if you credit them. If someone reads them here the newspaper loses traffic and therefore reduced ad revenue because they can't say they get as much traffic.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

Doesn't matter, nj.com can still claim they got x amount of hits to the page. Also, I don't think all ads are blockable.
