Silver and Black Pride Community Reminder:

It is becoming necesary that we take certain actions on this site to ensure that we are NOT impeding on someone else's territory.

As the Blog-o-Sphere continues to gain credibility we need to start taking precautions to protect ourselves while at the same time doing what it right by the writers around the internet.

I have had more than one person copy and paste my entire article on their sites to prove points or to share it with their Communities. I have never complained, but I probably should have. It is IN NO WAY OKAY to just copy and paste someone's entire article even if you do reference back to them.

I know it is common practice on the internet, but we neeed to be above that.

Now that we have grown to over 1,200 members and are getting over 150,000 visits a month, we need to protect what we are building here.

So, in the future, here is what is acceptable when referencing somone else's work:

I hope that you are all on board with this. Unfortunately any noncompliance with this will lead to a warning and the second will lead to a temporary ban. The third strike will result in a permanent ban.

I hate to have to institute anything besides personal attacks that can lead to banning, but I hope you agree, this has become necesary.

Cheers and keep up the good work, I am loving how the Nation is embracing SBN and S&BP,

Saint
