If I cut-and-paste an article from ESPN's Insider section of their site will you guys be annoyed and delete it, since it's from the "premium" part of the website? I'd put a link there instead of cutting-and-pasting, but I don't know how and I'm too lazy to care to learn.

(Secondary question: If yes, what if I only do that with stuff about the Kings?)

You can cut and paste an article, but you can't cut and paste a link?!

(I'd prefer you did both, actually.)

Hey, cutting and pasting from ESPN insider would be great! God knows I'm not going to pay for the crap ESPN wants me to pay for...



"I'm going to fill a dark awful basement with radioactive cockroaches. Yep. Big nasty ones like skateboards on legs, that go click-click-click when they walk. And maybe poisonous. I'm going to starve them for a week.

Then I'm going to catch all the coercive priss-spigots in the world, the ones that want to ban second-hand smoke and dwarf-tossing and beer. I'll smear the rascals with bacon fat, so the roaches won't know what they're eating, as otherwise they might not.

Then I'm going to toss all those greased busybodies into the basement. And whoop. And dance. Ha."

Actually, I'd delete it. Copyright infringment and all. That's why it's their Premium content.

Sucks, but it's the legal way. Yes, I realize I'm not making money off of this site, but it doesn't mean they wouldn't sue me for "lost revenue".

If you want to post it to your own web site and post a link to that, I don't think that would make us liable. I can't know where every article on every web site comes from.

I'm not encouraging this. If people should read something in the premium section of ESPN - they should pay for it. Just tell people where it is and make your recommendation, or summarize it. I think you can even freely quote passages from it - but posting the whole thing is definitely too far.

Of course if ESPNs lawyers want to talk to me about this I will take anything they have to say under advisement.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

I've been wondering for a while, how come my profile doesn't include the Projected Date for 5000 posts field? I'm assuming it's because of my low daily post number, but i'd really like to know. ETA:
- anibanging, Projected dates (2004)
