Please stop this nonsense of posting links we cannot read
Its a bad habbit on facebook or twitter also, appart from the title we dont know anything

This relates to this topic: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=69412 where sn26567 posted a link to paid content.

I would suggest to add a (+) behind a link whenever the article is only available for subscribers?

Comments welcome!

Or ever better : is the poster allowed to do some exec summary ?

Reproducing the article is not allowed, but summarising it is possible, although time-consuming.

OTOH, not everyone has to pay to read the content: some are subscribers of the paper publishing the article.

That specific one was maybe a little heavy indeed
But its not always the case
Those articles are something closer to a commercial PR than to a press work, it doesnt make much sense to block the access
