Good evening community!

This is a friendly reminder from your mods that plagiarism isn't to be tolerated in any shape or form. 
Whether it's by oversight, accident or if you just don't think it's that important, we have been seeing a LOT of material posted by members who aren't citing their sources. 

You all know the guidelines, and you all know where they can be found. There is a reason why it's listed second! Plagiarism is a HUGE no-no! Don't do it. Don't stand for it! If you see it or even suspect it, please report it to one of the mods immediately. 

Just in case you forgot:

"* Give credit where credit is due.

We have no issue with you posting an article or story from another site, book, magazine, etc., but please post the source. Plagiarism is both an intellectual and civil crime. There are enough educated and well read people on this site to spot it and call you on it. Don't humiliate yourself" *

Intellectual thievery is even worse than material. If you steal a piece of bread, it might be to feed your hungry family. If you steal money, it might be to provide for your children. 
There is no honorable excuse for stealing ideas. Taking the credit for words you didn't write is not only illegal, it's unjustifiable. 
If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us.
Thanks for reading!

And I'd like to add to that by saying, in my own words:
