    It is proper when directly quoting someone else's writing or otherwise incorporate it into your own work that you put quotes around the content, and say the original source.

    For example of what not to do, see a recent post: http://www.weliveinbeijing.com/discussion/thread.rails?Tid=1000002812
    The author fails to note that his post simply reposts this article: http://hi.nciku.com/space.php?uid=6675&do=blog&id=2398
    and instead treats it as his own work.

    For other examples, try googling any comprehensible English posts by user "Yes Sir".
    For examples of proper quoting of others materials, see any news articles posted by user "Sun".

    Yes Sir isn't a real person. The account is actually just a bot spider that regurgitates other web articles, but most of time it doesn't work and just randomly jumbles words together in iambic pentameter.

    Because seriously, if all you can do is copy other peoples posts, and use Google to translate pidgin French raps into nonsensical English that doesn't rhyme, then you're only worth about as much as 30 lines of viral code that does the same thing.

    Thank you Jon, I actually realized that some time ago, but today the bot-spider deleted my posts so I considered that it might have some other functions too that we don't know about.

    Jesus Pete, you are amazing. I thought that your post was actually written by Yes Sir on account of its incomprehensibility. So now we know that not only can you rap, but you can imitate too. Are you interested in showbiz?

    Entertainment? It sounds very good. Possible to connect to you in my Hollywood connection. I can write, rap, singing, dancing ... and even make the songs and dances, and candystriped shirt and Penny loafer-style drama.

    Is Yes Sir aware of the fact that people actually think he's some form of spamming computer code and not actually real? Course that would make sense if he didn't. "Bot spiders" don't have feelings (yet, at any rate)

    I actually googled his apology above to see if it was real or just some copied posting from another forum. looks legit though, i guess he's not a spider.

    I wish we could take the emotion we're all feeling right now, bottle it, and market it as a sports drink.

    I know man. Although this is slightly entertaining, can we maybe just delete accounts that do nothing but spew nonsense? Admin, are these all the same IP address?
    Yay for free speech and people can post dissenting opinions all day long, but having to filter through crap to read those opinions is just annoying.

    Anyway, it's nice out today in between sand storms...
