Fair is fair, regardless of who posted it.II - All Opening Post threads posted in *BN* must have:
• Static link to an article from a bona-fide news organization.
• Dateline within the past 48 hours.
• Exact same title as the cited article.
• Quoted short excerpts from the article.
• Your own unique content to spur discussion.
The OP did not, however, have any "unique content to spur discussion." So there's that.
