Please remember that it's against the law to post the full text of copyrighted articles at FHWP or any place where you don't have written authorization to reproduce them. A message board owner was recently sued for doing this. So I am posting this reminder to everyone that posting copyrighted articles is strictly prohibited.  You are allowed certain "fair use" of copyrighted works. But if you are in doubt, just post a link.

"Fair Use":
