I politely disagree. And as long as a credible link is provided it's perfectly appropriate to post on Topix.Copy and paste SUCKS. And not in a good way!!
I'm not one who randomly clicks on "naked" links, so the copy/paste works very well for me... I don't want my computer infected by being ignorantly gullible enough to click and trust what the content might include.
If some of you don't want to see copy and paste, then skim over it I guess. That's the best advice I can give you. Topix doesn't frown on it as long as a link is provided to insure that the proper site gets credit for it's content.
