Why is it OK to post links to other forums as original sources?

While I don't consider it egregious enough to alert I am getting tired of clicking on a DU post on a subject I am interested in only to find that the only content of that post is a link to another forum site.

The most recent one I've seen is: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027713434

The poster could have clicked through to the original story which is in that forum post and linked to it. I consider that the posts are click-bait to increase traffic at the other site.

If this is not against policy for them to do this I will just add that poster to my Ignore list - but they do have some interesting posts so I hate to do that.

We're planting trees!

They are tiny bare root seedlings from the Arbor Day Foundation they we got as a "gift" for donating money. They sent us:
3 white dogwoods
3 redbuds
2 Washington hawthornes
2 crabapples
+ "not trees" - 2 crape myrtles.

We're scattering them around the house, some along the driveway, some on the south side for a screen, and a grouping on the north side in front of the house.

When we first bought this farm we planted several thousand bare root seedlings - dogwoods, Southern red cedar, loblolly pines, and sawtooth oaks. Most of them survived and still growing. But that was almost forty years ago. About thirty five years ago we planted a bunch of sycamores and they are seriously huge and impressive.

We haven't planted many trees since - a few living "Christmas" trees, and an American holly for the front yard of the new house. The "Christmas" trees and holly were large when we planted them, unlike the bare root trees. So it is exciting to be planting these tiny little twigs and planning for them to get big.

I hope I live long enough to see these flowering trees reach their full maturity!
