    The offending diaries are still up, despite many other community members advising you that they are "cut and paste" and need to be taken down.

    Meteor Blades posted in at least one of  those diaries that they don't comply with fair use. Consider that the voice if authority.

    So one has to wonder why you're "apologizing" when you still haven't fixed what is still a significant problem.

    Get back to us when you have.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

        Apologies?

        Honest question.

          they offer them as a final alternative to banning.

          own accord , I felt that I had aggrieved certain individuals have made some grievous errors. I believed that an apology was the 1st order of business.

            have been cited by admin... it's not really meant in a bad way, just to keep things from getting crazy.

            the fair use issue is not anyone trying to be nasty - it's a simple matter of law.

            If any diary here on DailyKos quotes too much from a source, with or without attribution, the site itself is potentially on the hook for a copyright infringement lawsuit.

            Given than some of the sources that get quoted have absolutely no interest in seeing DailyKos in existence and actually would actively like to see it go away, that sort of opening is potentially catastrophic.

            This is something to be careful about just so that the site stays in existence.
