Official policy that is going to be strickly enforced without exception:

No press releases, newsletters, Webpages, or copyrighted content may be inserted into WebmasterWorld posts. Minor excerpts of less than one paragraph (5 sentences) may be used. All other forms of inserted content from Press Releases, Newsletters, Webpages, or any other copyrighted content will be removed without exception on sight.

We've had a growing number of incidents with this lately from press releases to private newsletters to news stories being copied into posts. That can't happen. It puts you, me, and the system at legal risk. A link to the content is appropriate.

I have updated the Terms of Service [webmasterworld.com] to include the above.
