How to Post an Article or Blog Post:

Copying/pasting entire articles/blog posts is considered copyright abuse in the site rules.

Quote:
7. Copyrighted Material: Generally you can assume that anything you find online is copyrighted. We prefer you post a synopsis in your own words and the link to the article. It's permissible to quote up to 20 lines of text and you must provide commentary. DO NOT POST ENTIRE ARTICLES.
Far too often posters are seen copying/pasting entire articles/blog posts on the boards without the links.

If you want to post an article or blog post, copy the link (url) and a paragraph or two of the text that gives the synopsis. It may take a little extra time, but it's helpful in the long run.

See exhibit A: http://hfboards.com/showpost.php?p=21952042&postcount=1

It's not up to mods or other posters to hunt down the links to the articles you're posting.

Future posting of entire articles/blog posts will be subject to warnings/infractions.
