Plagarism is not allowed on
the same way people cannot post pictures that do not belong to them without giving the owner credit, you cannot word for word post someones published work without giving them credit

all we ask is that the rightful owner is accredited, Ryan posted the name of the author in his post, so since people now know that he is the rightful author.

It is NOT unreasonable for people to get upset at this, some people devote their lives to finding info like this and copying it word for word just trivializes what they have put into this work.

the author may not care, but thats not for us to decide, i know that i would be upset if my work was copied with permission or accreditation.

thats it.
