Hey Lee,

I think what everyone is trying so tactfully to say is that your original post violates the rules of this forum. What the Moderators ask is that you include a few sentences describing the article you are linking to and maybe a specific topic for discussion.

Can you understand the forum rules?

This covers drive by postings:
http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=418983

Quote:
A few words on cut-n-paste threads/posts and drive-by threads/posts in general.

What's the definition of a drive-by post?

One that is devoid of substance ("+1" anyone?).
One that attempts to advance an agenda without intelligent back-up.
One that has no intelligent content.

What's the definition of a cut-n-paste post?

One that contains a link and little or no commentary on the link.
One that contains an article a sentence or two from an article (cut-n-pasted) and little or no commentary on the article. Entire articles are banned by TFL's copyright policy.
One that contains both a link and an article a sentence or two from an article, but has little or no commentary.

The above applies equally to individual posts within a thread, or to the starting post of a thread itself.
