For clarity, please add the name of the author to your content with any article and/or art links that may apply.
It is deceitful to pass other peoples work, off as your own. Please respect the work of others, in accordance with The Illuminati’s Tenant of Value and Trade. Words have value. Those that write them, deserve to be recognized for having done so.
