Yes, American er hmm plagiarist Lady, you are encouraged but YOU STILL HAVE TO ATTRIBUTE IT otherwise readers may think it's you, though in your case, if it's well written and error-free, we know it's not you.
Furthermore, copying and pasting full length articles from third party sources is simply spamming. Birfoons need to learn how to summarize a work and include brief quotes to specific pertinent passages. This is why children are taught to write book reports in middle school. Most birfoons could never master the technique because they cannot write a coherent paragraph.
