I've never seen the point of anyone just making a post that simply just contains a link to a news site without some sort of comment to what it is.
You are then having to view the link to see what the story is, why not simply say what the story, or points within the story are, and show the links as references to what you are saying in the discussion on the forum?
In the past I've had to delete posts from certain people who constantly copied and pasted selected comments from elsewhere, without linking to them or the context of which they were said.
Now we've gone to the other extent it seems with some, with hardly any narrative and just a link.
It really isn't hard to at least put up the title of the article together with the link (they are both on the same page you are viewing any way) when you make a post.
Hardly a banning matter though.
