    Without significantly more commentary in your own words, this is just linkspam.

      From so many sources?

      •  The "with permission" is accurate (0+ / 0-)

        In many (but not all cases), I use RepubHub, which offers content from a variety of sources -- so long as I embed them with the ads that come with them.

        Other times, I get permission to post things directly. Or, I use content published under a Creative Commons license that allows people to republish things with attribution.

        When I do the latter, I usually let the publisher know I will be doing that. If they offer an automatic "ping" counter, I embed it into the code.

        Sometimes, I aggregate content or use a press release as a jumping off point.

        I don't have the resources to do a lot of original reporting at this point. But I am hoping that I will eventually be able to do that.

        Please do not imply accusations when you do not know the facts. It's hard enough to be a tiny, start-up web publisher without that kind of thing happening.

    •  Don't have permission to post the whole thing here (0+ / 0-)

      That would not fit the terms of use for RepubHub content.

      So, I posted a short section and a link to the rest. That's a pretty commonplace thing to do.

      I don't see why that should make anyone angry.

        Don't have permission to post the whole thing here
        •  First of all, we're not playing a game (0+ / 0-)

          So, there are no points sets or matches. I was merely explaining why I could post the whole article on the site I own, but not here. And that's why I posted an excerpt from the story and a link to where it was legally posted.

          For the life of me, I don't understand why that makes you so very angry and offended. But frankly, I'm starting to care less and less about that. I just want you to go away. If you must be mean and vindictive, please find another target.

            •  I suppose I could (0+ / 0-)

              But the point of a forum like this is to share information. That's what I did here. I'm not selling anything. I am just sharing content that I find interesting with the idea that others might find it interesting as well.

              I remain perplexed about why you are so horribly bent out of shape. You have made zero comments that addressed the content. All of them have been aimed at derailing the discussion with implied accusations that you won't explain in a straightforward way.

              If you have something to ask me, please ask it. Otherwise, go away.

      Spam usually implies an attempt to sell something to someone. I am just delivering a link to a news item.
