Not supposed to do it. Do you have anything specific you are referring to???


Is it a case of forgetting a link? _ ask for a link.

Not just in cases of forgetting a link - but in cases where people are trying to pass off "cut and pastes" as their own words without giving proper citations.

Well, it's retarded and if you can produce the source material links, you can rub their faces in it and humiliate them. If you're asking if we have a formal policy on punishing liars and frauds, the answer is probably "No". :)

I think that's a bad idea. I probably won't get angry at people who do this, but legally speaking, I think that's a bad idea.

You think what is a bad idea? Plagiarism? Not banning plagiarists? Humiliating plagiarists? :confused:

Well, there is that. But I practice self-reliance. That is an important commodity.
