If you are going to post an article to this message board we have a few requests.
First, if at all possible please make every attempt to find a copy of it on the web. If it is from a newspaper or magazine look for their web site and search for the article. Once you have found the article you are looking for please post only either a summary or the first paragraph or two. Then follow it up with a link to the full article for those who wish to read the whole thing. While doing this please be sure to credit the author and/or source! Keeping this portion of your post will leave plenty of room for the next request.
If you post a story TELL US WHY! What are your thoughts, what is your opinion (you do have one!). Most articles are intended to be unbiased and only provide information, it is your job to explain your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, etc...
We are starting to get a lot of posts from a variety of users that only contain an article. Most of these posts don't lead to a discussion because there hasn't been an opinion posted to discuss or argue (calmly please).
