"make sure you put quotation marks around the quotation, followed by my name and/or a link to the source.

Actually, I doubt metmom coined the phrase and I am not going to take scholarly or legal advice from you. Apparently copyright law, like chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics and theology, is another area of study that you know nothing about.

I am going to continue to excerpt, content skim, and cut & paste under the provisions of the "Fair Use" doctrine per 17 U.S.C. § 106 and 17 U.S.C. § 106A. "The fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright".

I had hoped you would have figured this out by now, but it is impossible to underestimate you.

Not only are you just plain wrong, what you are advocating is immoral. Stealing someone else’s intellectual property and making it appear to be your own is dishonest thievery. It also suggests that you never got a higher education, as fair use and giving attribution is drilled into students at the college and university level.
