In layspeak...I courteously ask you to respect copyright law and not to copy large blocks of the text of the articles here in any format - written, online, email, whatever - unless I've given you explicit permission.  Just linking is fine, with maybe a brief excerpt - like a couple of sentences - sure.  Whole paragraphs, one after another, not so much.

If this bothers you, I feel bad about that. In my ideal world, we'd all share ideas and information freely.  In the world where I have to pay for stuff if I want to eat, ideas and information are valuable.  The good part is, I'll respect your copyright, too.
