He rightly argues that these king of posts are a form of plagiarism, and that highlighting them the science editors “make it [plagarism] seem acceptable”.
Well, I’m a science editor (I can star your posts) and I feel that this issue should be addressed. Jtotheizzoe’s suggestion not to feature those posts is basically what I already do, and that’s one of the reasons I feature one, maybe two posts per day.
So, once again, please, give credit to the source of your content, you just have to put a link and use quotation marks, is not that hard.
And I hope some other editor will adopt a more proper-citations-are-important featuring policy.
