    ^^The vast majority of corrected threads don't result in infractions. Just because an automatic Alertbot gets sent, doesn't mean there is an infraction. I think people confuse the two. I've had (and asked for) a few titles to be corrected lately and I get Alertbots when it happens. It doesn't bother me.

    There are very good legal reasons why we have to post sources for photos and articles and although it may seem cumbersome, even stupid, it's very important or the board could in theory be sued or even shut down. Like everyone else I have occasionally forgotten to quote a source and got an alertbot reminder but it was never an infraction which I assume would be given to repeat offenders and quite right too. Some people think that rules only apply to other people and if we aren't kept in line this big and busy board would quickly descend into total anarchy.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Yeah, I don't post photos really, at all. I just learned how to use image shack last month.

    As far as sourcing everything. *Pats herself on the back*

    I think AO stated it perfectly. There's a reason the rules are there, it's not arbitrary.

    Oh well. I've learned my lesson.
    You'd think so, but last call from a lawyer she pronounced URL as "Earl" and wanted my "Internet Phone Number"

    Also Sweetie, your pictures are broken. If you click on one of images you posted you'll see that they don't load http://i3.uploadem.com/09042007/th/0.jpg

    I post new threads all the time and receive a few Alert Bots here and there. I do my best, but one thing I do have difficulty with is Madonna. She needs a last name, right, but is it Ciccone or Ritchie or what? I was going to post about her vibrator yesterday but got too stressed wondering what she should be called. Gaaah!
