bojo is the last person that should be rolling his eyes at other peoples work.

stuff me sideways does everyone now have to provide a link when they quote publicly available stats?
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

Yahweh? or the great Clawski?

Stick to the topic rather than potting the site and its rules

As mentioned the rules regarding needing to post a link when you source info directly from another site has been in place since this site started back in May 2004, so I am not sure why it's suddenly an issue (even in supposed jest)

But just so everyone is clear as per the site rules:

2.   Plagiarism: will not and cannot be allowed. If you are posting threads that are direct copies from other sites (eg Real Footy, RFC website etc) and this includes other “unofficial” sites you must quote the source/link. Also, we request that if you use information from this site as discussion topics on other forums that you quote OER as the source and post the appropriate link. Due to legal requirements failure to quote the correct source/link will result in the post being either edited if we can locate the source or removed. Before resorting to removing any post we will endeavour to contact the original OER poster to get them to edit their post. If we are unable to do that OER will endeavour to find the source and edit the post.

No.

I have lost count of how many times people have been asked to post the appropriate link and it doesn't happen

We ask, it doesn't get done, it gets removed. That's what happens

No, suggest you re-read the entire rule . It says we will endeavour to find it, if we can't and the posters doesn't add the link it gets removed.
