    my intended post could be seen as a bit controversial but will get there when not busy
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    This new thread looks like it would be more helpful in Chess Training rather than General Chess Chat, of course if the author agrees.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Dr Moderator not Mr.

    Seems Michael has caused his own thread to go off-topic in this instance. I'm not necessarily going to protect threads where the thread-starter causes them to degenerate into the usual culture war sludge.

    Posts moved - had Abbott been PM when he made the comments I would have considered them on-topic.

    Seems to me it is covered by the following:

    * The article is being quoted for the purposes of critical review of something else appearing on the board (for instance, to refute a claim another poster has made.)

    (though perhaps we should change "refute" to "attempt to refute")

    There is also "The mods may also take action against cut-and-pastes that are extremely long, [..]" but in this case I am not, at this stage, inclined to.

    Strictly speaking, he wasn't even attempting to refute anything, as what was posted had no relevance to the points that I had raised (even though he was supposedly replying to my post). And, even in those cases, my opinion is that posters should do what I was taught in school: Summarise the conclusions of an article in their own words, and only quote the parts of the article necessary to support their points. That would also demonstrate that posters actually understood what they are posting!

    So I wish people wouldn't do it (quote slabs of text), but I don't have a problem with the occasional transgression. The worse problem is that it's impossible to respond to such a post in detail without clogging everything up

    Actually that is good advice. I will try to do better at following it.

    From Authenticity of quotes made by famous people

    Moderation Notice

    antichrist is only permitted to post on this thread if his posts are strictly on-topic, ie strictly confined to the issue of the authenticity of quotes made by genuinely famous people.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the case of quotes attributed to non-historical people can they be examined or how can they be examined?
