First off IC. I do apologize for a couple of personal shots I took at you in the thread. Emotions run high on that forum and it got the best or worst of me. So there are a couple of sentences I wish I could take back.
In terms of your statement here.........
- BG was showing his ignorance to the world by first posting "Last warning. Next time.......... I go put up a post on the Webmaster Forum.", Then I did what he should have done in the first place, I did a google search, and there were 10 links on the first google page to the article I posted.-
No. It wasn't up to me to have to track down your sources for you. That is your responsibility. You should not be pasting a massive amount of words written by someone else into a public post here without crediting the source. It is that simple. It is a matter of ethics. People get thrown off websites and out of Schools for doing that. If it isn't your work, then you need to source who wrote and did the research for it. It's pretty basic "101" stuff.
And in terms of 132 insinuating that I am trying to get you and others kicked off of curezone. Not true. I don't want to see you or anybody else thrown off. And it is not even my call to make. But there should be rules. And one of the most basic ones is that you don't take other peoples work and pass it off as your own. Even if that is not your "intent". Still. Pasting articles written by others into your posts without giving credit will give the appearance to some that they were written by you. Which is not the case. So in the future, source your material.
