Topic: JD Debate > RE: +Re: OT: RE: copyright issues was Newb Dives In! (4 msgs / 90 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
This has been entertaining. Claims and counter claims with little or no
supporting evidence presented. I propose the debate be formalized and the
winner judged by the List at large.  Both John & Dave get One (more) post to
substantiate and document their arguments and claims. Then both get One post
to rebuttal the other's post. Finally each get a final closing post. We then
vote for the JD Debate winner. The JD Debate & Results will be published and
copyrighted:-)

Well, lest we forget the original point, which some seem intent on  
obscuring, don't pull stuff off web sites and post it here or  
elsewhere without crediting the author/source and if it's more than a  
small bit of text, just post a link to it, rather than copying it.  
People deserve credit for the work they do, even when they are giving  
information away for free, and it's not right to post what someone  
else has written without attribution.
And, if it's material off a competitors site (which the posted  
information was not) it probably shouldn't be posted to SM's list  
anyway, nor should the URL.

Lest we forget the original INTENT of this list
IS COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4) From: Tom Ulmer
I will cast my vote for Mr. Blumel as I believe his original intent was not
necessarily to pursue debate intended for lawyers and lawmakers but rather
to jibe the original poster to consider mores and conventions of polite
folk.
