Please don't post huge chunks of copyrighted material in the comments section

I just deleted a comment that was mainly a huge block of text from the newspaper article I linked to. Can't do that. These articles are copyrighted material and there are plenty of cases in the courts right now over bloggers taking more than the "fair use" exception allows. A brief quotation is all that can be posted in a weblog.

The comments section is for your comments, not for posting another 250 words from the article itself. If people want to read the article, they can follow the link.
