I agree Mods, "Plagiarism is a serious and illegal offense."
The only question I would have for you is 'Why didn't you reply to my U2U that I had sent you over an article that I wanted to create a new thread
with by way of a privy issue of the TIMES magazine?"
I waited for a response from some one in your clique to reply on my possible infringements of plagiarism on this particular request, but your response
I, for one, always respect the intellectual prowess of higher thinking individuals such as the article author of the TIMES story that was an early
release, especially when trying to research and come to validating conclusions. When I had a question, you did not answer. That being said, there are
probably those of us out there that have attempted to act responsible and respectful to the ATS forums, just never got a "Yea or Ney" from the very
people that could of answered such a request to keep everything on the up and up as far as plagiarism goes.
Though I know you have no control over another individuals irresponsible acts of such thing's, I have notice to be an issue myself. I can understand
the hard line measures you are taking and respect them fully, can you just maybe have a knocking of the heads of all the MODS that are the answerer's
to such inquiring individuals and have them give their take on the ramification's of what can and can't be reproduced as a thread with a bit more of
an expedited response to such inquiries?
Good plan, great explanation of the 0-tolerance and most of all, I don't want to see anything happen to this website, legally or other wise, it has
been a place of mind expansion and intellectual awakenings for me and many others that are member's and even the lurker's end up signing on because
they see the higher qualities of the serious individuals that truly look, listen and learn expectation's.
