Google Dumps Policy Proposal for the Gun Control & RKBA Group [View all]

Many here oppose Google dumps--posts consisting of quotes from stories or opinion pieces with no comments by the OP "author." Others, based on their posting habits, obviously disagree.

(Since another policy proposal for this group has been posted here, and IIRC even pinned, I am assuming that this post is appropriate.)

I propose that Google dumps not be allowed in this group. What do you think?

If a googler dumps something interesting we can discuss it with or without the OP's petronius Aug 2012 #1
I get your point, but I think allowing google dumps by folks who then run for the hills makes it TPaine7 Aug 2012 #2
