  • New Policy for Posting News Stories- PLEASE READ - No Law suit for Watchman's Cry!!!

    We don't want WCF to get sued!!!

    Well folks, it seems that the love of money has brought Mafia tactics to the internet.

    It seems that a certain newspaper publisher has started suing forums and blogs that post their news stories.

    The individual doing this is motivated by money and is using a loophole in the copyright laws to "shakedown" the internet for profit.

    The story is here:

    So to protect ourselves, I am asking all of you to please only post:

    1. the news story title.
    2. maybe a sentence on what the story is about.
    3. the link to the news story.

    I know that in the past I asked that you "cut and paste" the stories in here, but now we need to change that policy.

    Thanks and God bless,

    When I post something from me cell fone I don't know how to put a link in!
    Then what?

      Sky Pilot, not sure what kind of a phone you are using. But IF your cell phone has a search bar ie: for google, it may allow you to "copy" an article's link and then "paste" it.

      You would have to have both a posting box open on this site, plus the article open that you wanted to post from at the same time.

      Mark 13: 22 "For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect."

        That's the problem, I can only have one window open at a time!
        and I don't know how to get this stoopid thing to copy and paste!
        I tell it to, but nothing happens!

          I too use a cell phone. Forget cut and paste. Would you believe hand copy and type?
          Good grief, our little Herald Democrat in Sherman, Texas is on that list!
