  1. Some people like to memorize. I've never done random lists of words, though. I remember doing these in school. I taught my kids to read with Reading Reflex, which basically teaches reading through word formation/spelling, and am using How to Teach Spelling with the How to Spell workbooks.
  2. I like the term "opportunistic shakedown ventures" to describe this activity https://gigaom.com/2012/09/19/copyright-trolls-2-0-image-sites-embrace-righthaven-tactics/
  3. Another reason not to take random internet images... http://www.nationmultimedia.com/life/Definitely-one-way-to-get-students-attention-30242979.html
  4. But without linking, it wouldn't be much of a web. I think it's entirely different to post a link to something versus passing it off as your own. I read about some CM curriculum that was just AO or something. Obviously idiotic. Also as has been pointed out, there are ethics involved in where images are hosted, on both sides. If it stays on your server, am I really stealing it? And also, I am accessing your bandwith or whatever, and maybe that's obnoxious.
  5. My guess is it's either a threatening letter from Getty, which they apparently like to send out (per this article that someone linked to https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20140820/18020328272/getty-threatens-wrong-ip-law-firm-its-copyright-trolling-efforts.shtml )or to do with the hacked naked celebrity pics.
  6. The drawing in my avatar was done in 1848.

      Dead public domain celebrities. The new WTM fad!

  7. http://www.forbes.com/sites/emmawoollacott/2014/09/08/reddit-gives-mixed-messages-after-pulling-leaked-celebrity-photos/ I didn't think we had any of *those* type of photos on here, ugh.
  8. Some members may be on vacation or, alas, no longer alive. I wouldn't want every post of theirs to be deleted. I think Moira used to post kilt photos, and I remember Myrtle posting her own pictures of her kid's work, but those may be gone by now. It is possible to "report" other people's posts, anyway. I have done this a few times in the interest of just getting this over with.
  9. We've lost a lot of old and good threads; some were set aside by special request when the site was recently updated, but I've tried to access some old threads without success. I'd hate to have more lost. Because I really do go back and read old threads. I had this happen but with someone else's post; the image was of a topless woman and it seemed to be adult themed spam.
  10. Ok I just did a search and my first result is a photo of a topless woman. When I go to the thread, it's not actually there. So... Er.... Are the deleted posts still around somewhere?

  12. I searched Educatiom and Lounge. I think I just don't post many pictures. I found other people's, but I've just gotten sucked into the lice thread and half an hour went by and I've got another page to go.
  13. I have had periods when I didn't visit the forum for weeks or even months; I am sure I'm not the only one. I am relying on my memory and my habit of getting graphics from wikipedia and not posting kilt photos or whatever, but the initial request not to post any text that's not mine and remove it if I did, for example, is overwhelming. I've posted tons of short excerpts, including just phrases, that weren't mine, but were clearly attributed to their source, and I go out of my way to include URLs. But if it's huge swathes of texts, or copies from other sites, or photos of celebrities, or scans of book pages, or whatever, maybe it could be located if we knew what was problematic, but if SWB can't say, then it's really hard to know if we can remove the offending items. I have been posting on here for a while and I have just lost track. But I am concerned because this site is such a valuable reference, that I want to do something useful. Is it just celebrity photos from recently?
