Skip to comments.Does anyone care what the "source" is?

I'm just curious. Does it matter that to anyone that I don't fill in the "source" part of posts? Is it not enough that I give the URL? Does anyone except pissant give a damn?
Get off my back, pissant! Just trying to do my part to save conservatism and fight Obamunism.
Your pettiness about formatting gives this whole site a bad name.
Not trying to start a fight; but get over yourself with the "proper posting" crap already!
That may be going a little overboard?
If it's even possible to go a "little" overboard.
Anyway, it doesn't bother me.
I would just ignore pissant. Consider the source if you will.
Well, well, well....aren’t we a little pissy...
Ummm... his name “Pissant” Not “Pollysunshineblower”.
You better come here.
Will somebody please tell me why Natalie Portman is running for Senator? I thought she already was Senator...
Yes the source is very very important. A lot of people here decide not to read an article if it is not from a source they already feel pretty sure they’ll agree with.
I for one care very much for the source. Since 1) the source of this particular post is the person who posted it and 2) the poster has little to say except engage in a very personal, petty, non-topical rant, I can’t think of a thread that is more worthy of being pulled.
i just don’t who he/she is and why it gives me such a hrd time.
I think I post decent, relevant material.
Don’t get what the problem is.
“Not trying to start a fight; but get over yourself with the “proper posting” crap already!”
Without trying to sound like Andy Rooney, “Did you ever notice that when a guy says “Not trying to start a fight;” it’s always just before the thing that he says that tries to start a fight?”
newbies starting fights is considered poor form on FR. Even worse is calling out someone by name and not pinging them to the thread. You won’t last here if you keep it up.
I’m really not;just didn’t think it was that big of a deal. If it was, then FR would make it mandatory.
Yes, I care. I like to go back to the original source and judge them for credibility. Some sources are more reliable and some are just plain fiction writers. I like to make up my own mind.
I've never had a problem getting to whatever link you've provided.
I don't know what pissant's problem with you is but his nick may contain some clues.
What’s the difference between the “source” and the “source URL”? I really don’t get it. Is it that big of a deal? Seriously!
You're really trying to get some mileage out of the "Natalie Portman for Senate" thing. I would add, if you are a Natalie Portman fan, check out a movie she made called "The Closer". It's filthy - in all the best ways.
Lighten up...what would Andy Rooney do? sarc... ;^)
“Closer”, you mean. And it ain’t worth sitting through. She still doesn’t do the full monty in it.
