I made a thread about making an owl potholder in DIY. People spammed pictures and one user was severely asspained because I didn't include a link to where I took the instructions from. I PM'd moaninglisa to remove the spam. This was his response:
A. stop plagiarizing.
B. I will remove all spiderman and spam posts, not the ones directly showing you plagiarized
C.I will give CH a 1-point 1-hour infraction for spam.
Since when is "plagiarizing" a topic of concern on here? Why is a serious thread allowed to be derailed because I didn't include a link to the source? On a section like DIY that gets virtually 0 traffic you'd think you might have a very easy time removing spam posts from the one thread posted in the past month.
So, is plagiarism aka not posting a link now a legitimate reason for people to derail a thread?
