Dear Members and Occasional Posters,
I wish to complain about the rise of Posts which use, word for word, and sometimes, Cut and Paste, Information previously Published on this board, without any acknowledgement of the source or referral to the original Poster.
(Ie, approprating the information as if it is one’s own).
Case in Point, the latest Posting by (name withheld) on the Cartridge neck cracking thread.
This is an exact rendition of a Post made by me some time back on the problem of “non-annealing” of Cartridge cases etc.
Whilst I am all for the dissemination of Information to all members who are interested, correct publishing ethics require correct attribution of the information supplied, whether from Published Books, Pamphlets, or Communications from private individuals.
It is Known that by using the Web, we lose some of our Copyright protections, but that does not absolve Posters from attribution of the Author of the Information.
I would advise the Moderators to severely admonish the Poster concerned, and remove his post from the Thread.
