PLEASE REFRAIN FROM POSTING BARE LINKS ON THIS BOARD
« on: March 13, 2013, 03:28:45 PM »
If you are posting a link to a news story, blog post or anything else, kindly include a brief summary of what it is about and some commentary from yourself. That way readers can decide if they wish to read further. We can all read news on our own, we don't need members acting as a CNN ticker for us. If nothing else, its lazy.

Thanks

[Thumbs Up Icon] Thank you Widge. Seeing a thread with an interesting title and opening it only to find a link is a bit irritating IMO. If someone thought enough of the linked material that it would be of interest to other members, they should at least have some thoughts of their own about it to include along with a brief summary or quote from the link.
