Bumping this to the top again.

News organizations (particularly the AP) have become increasingly vigilant about containing the rampant republishing of their original content onto other sites, blogs and message boards. We agree with them (to a degree) - nothing sucks more than having an article or room review I've worked for two weeks on copy/pasted wholesale onto other sites, who claim ownership and glory of our witticisms and observation.

It is stated very clearly on the "post topic" page - but I'd like to make it even more clear:

Please do not copy/paste full news stories from other sources onto the Chit-Chat board, paste in a link, a small quote (not more than a paragraph - two tops) and more importantly tell us what you think about the story you've linked to and why it struck your fancy.
