    •  What are you talking about? (0+ / 0-)

      I put "POLITICO: Hillary Clinton foes file FEC complaint"

      Notice the word "POLITICO"...????

      I also put the authors of the article at the very beginning of my post: "By BYRON TAU and KATIE GLUECK"

      Therefore, I told readers that POLITICO posted this article and that Byron Tau and Katie Glueck wrote it.

      If I need to post a link as well, fine. But to say I plagiarized is stupid.

        then allow me to amend.

        We do not allow copyright violations here -- and you have cut and pasted an entire article wholecloth which is in violation of fair use, and against community standards which limit copypasta of a copyrighted article to 2-3 paragraphs.

        •  OK?? (0+ / 0-)

          Amend it then?

          But to accuse me of plagiarizing (when I gave credit to both POLITICO and authors Byron Tau and Katie Glueck) is ridiculous.

          I also had no clue about the 2-3 paragraph rule.

          Instead of accusing me of plagiarizing (even though I gave OBVIOUS credit to POLITICO and the authors), maybe you should have started off saying I can't cut/paste entire articles wholecloth and that you have a copy/paste community standard of 2-3 paragraphs.

          Jeeezus.
