More advice for posting articles:

Don’t just search the title, also search the major keyword. Often the same article will be posted by ten different sources with ten different titles.

Add keywords. Name of country, government department, main person’s last name. Tons of threads never get seen by those of us that look for articles by keyword.

Go to the original source. If HotMess.Blog posts a short blurb about an article from a newspaper, post the original article, not the blog blurb. I hate that. We all hate that.

True! And the same thing if the Ass. Press has an article from a local source - then you might be better ahead to go to that local source and post from there.

Same AP article published by all those different flavors of newspaper.

If posters are concientious about using and searching for the exact title that will cut down on the duplicates, but sometimes a duplicate just means people who missed the first post will see the second.
