are there limits on how much of an article you can quote?

do they vary according to the source?
I post on other boards and they generally keeps us to 3 or 4 paragraphs yet I keep seeing people quote entire articles here, isn't copyright an issue here?

thank you

Hilarious legacy of Boaty McBoatface

Hilarious legacy of Boaty McBoatface

Not only was the name hilarious and irreverent, it was a perfect description of the vessel, which sported a chirpy red paint job that belied the serious work it will carry out.
And although the British establishment last week rejected the people’s choice as inappropriate, the legacy of Boaty McBoatface lives on, inspiring the naming of a racehorse, “Horsey McHorseface” and a giant Japanese spider crab christened “Cuddlebug McNope”.
Last month, a British train route from Portsmouth to Waterloo was named “Trainy McTrainface”, much to the delight of commuters.
Now a school in Austin, Texas controversially named after famed Confederate general, Robert E Lee, has called on the public to come up with a new title. Among the front runners? Schoolie McSchoolface, of course.



I really love Cuddlebug McNope.

'That's not Octopus,' Class Claims

That's not Octopus,' Class Claims
As octopus prices spiral due to worldwide overfishing, an importer is mislabeling its jumbo squid as octopus to trick consumers, a diner claims in a federal class action.
Luis Diego Zapata Fonseca sued Vigo Importing Co. on Tuesday, "on behalf of purchasers of Vigo octopus products that Vigo had labeled and sold as octopus when in reality the products contained jumbo squid, which is significantly cheaper and of a lower quality than octopus."
The nine-count lawsuit, alleging fraud, false advertising, unfair competition and other charges, contains a wealth of information about the octopus, which, like the squid, is a cephalopod.


I remember trying to tell the manager of a small company I worked for when they got fis instead of scallops with a big price differential. But they didn't care so much, did not come from their pockets, So I put it in a yelp comment, heh.

my department was replaced by H1B visa personnel when I was 58

Hillary Clinton is on record for supporting increasing the number of H1B visas. I never worked again.
I was offered a new position which I did turn down, I was offered a job in India for 1/3 less pay and a lot less benefits to manage the Indian workers that they would have when they moved the IT department over there after they laid off all departments. Did I mention I was 58 with a mother that was ill and depended on me?

exactly why should I support her?


Edited to add detail

so for some reason, I had MSNBC with Tweety on and the woman covering the Sanders campaign comes on

sorry I can't here you there is either a concert or a rave going on right now and it is loud -
way to cover the news - wonder who you are supporting much. Don't even ask the proportionof Hillary camp people on vs the Sanders camp people.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz joins hands with GOP in assault on Elizabeth Warren’s consumer pr

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz joins hands with GOP in assault on Elizabeth Warren’s consumer protection agency

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a close ally of Hillary Clinton, is trying to gut regulations on loan sharks
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chair of the Democratic National Committee, has joined the Republican assault on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
...
Not if the DNC can stop it, however. For Wasserman Schultz has thrown her weight behind the Republican effort to sabotage the bureau’s proposed regulations of the out-of-control predatory lending.

The DNC executive is co-sponsoring a new bill that would effectively “gut the CFPB’s forthcoming payday loan regulations,” the Huffington Post reports.


Can we rename her Debbie Wasserman-republican and get her thrown the heck out so we can elect some progressives? as it is she undercuts progressives in her own state and supports either republicans or DINOs. But I am sure everyone knows this about her now.
why is she heading the DNC or sor we call it the RNC part II? Why is she there at all, if we won a few election I would see it, but everything has gone to pot under her lack of leadership.

Guess what campaign info Christie just sold to Marco Rubio?

anything for a buck
Gov. Chris Christie's now-suspended presidential campaign has sold its email list of supporters and donors to his former chief Republican rival Marco Rubio, the governor's campaign spokesman confirmed Monday.

That means those who supported the governor are now getting messages from Rubio, who was Christie's prime target during the New Hampshire primary. The first e-mail message went out Sunday afternoon.

Samantha Smith, a spokeswoman for Christie's campaign, told NJ Advance Media the decision to sell the e-mail list to Rubio was "no endorsement" and that "it is standard practice for other campaigns to buy lists ... Anyone can rent/buy the list via the vendor."

I have my computer on mute and when I go to Salon, it's ads turn on my sound agaiN

It is very annoying, I have the speakers away from me, don't want to have to walk across the room to turn off the speakers or to have to dig around behind the computer under the desk to pull the speaker plug.
why does this happen and how do I stop it?

I think everyone is overlooking the most important decision now that Scalia is dead

Who will be Clarence Thomas' friend? He a Scalia were in lock step sometimes it was just the two of them against everyone else.
Who will write the dissenting decisions? Scalia did most of them from the conservative side.
