I note many cartoons were removed from today’s toons to comply with media requests.

Perhaps that will be the reason for the forthcoming opus?

It seems like there ought to be a technical solution to make it easier for everyone, like an easy way for the moderators to maintain a database of excerpt-and-link-only URLs, in combination with a URL scanning routine in the posting code to find those URLs and notify the poster. The coding would not be difficult for handling most cases.

How about verifying this from the primary source?

Pookie, they’re saying you’re opusing out?

Just a guess, but after looking at the 4/3 toons page; too many sources are getting their panties in a wad over linking in their toons, and the mods are removing them.

Some forums do not allow any political cartoons posted as images to avoid the copyright issues.

I’m in the midst of FReepmailing everyone on my ping list (550) that I’ll no longer be posting the toons (here), but will remain a FReeper unless they have other ideas.

Everyone has to play by Jim's rules.

If Jim is being threatened with lawsuits then you must comply with Jim's request to provide written permission from the artist.

Basically what you are doing in posting all the cartoons in one place, is robbing those other sites of the internet traffic the cartoons generate.

That affects what those sites charge to advertise.

Jim is not being mean and hard on you, it's the nature of internet business.

So you’re saying FR told you you couldn’t post the tunes here? Are you kidding me? So, what other sites will they be on because I’ll be there.

Funny thing is: Pookie has actually turned me, and probably a lot of people, on to toon's we would have never seen otherwise. I go visit a few sites that either carry, an artist toon's, or the artist's site itself because of her.

Of course I understand Jim's position, but he ought to tell them it is, or can be, a form of free advertising for them.

Of course; Not that those lame brains in the MSM would listen or understand.

That's the way the papers see it. I am looking at cartoons and cartoonists I never would see, because I don't go to those sites or read those papers.

It gives more exposure to the cartoonist and may draw people to their sites. This stance by them to protect their proprietary info will only ensure that this reader ignores them in the future.

Sad to hear that. I always enjoyed them, they were the first thing I checked out every day.

I want to thank you for your postings, I know it had to be a lot of work.

Where will you be posting them?

Chris Muir is excellent!

Yea! I saw one of his strips on your post for the first time, really liked it, checked the source link, and then spent the next three days going through his entire line from the beginning.

He's witty, Right, and he draws his women real fine :)

I know it would have been more work, but perhaps if you put in the A HREF as part of the toon, linking back to the source, some (of the smarter ones perhaps) might not have been so pissy about it.

Of course I'm speaking of rational, intelligent people, which of course leaves out the NYT among others.
