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.

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.

Yea, it's true.

Anyways, I don't see one ad on nj.com thanks to ABP. It's great. You can block virtually all that crap with it. Highly recommended (if you use firefox).
