I appologize if I was being unclear. My objective is to learn how to follow the forum rules. In that respect I read the forum rules which are posted here http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=414380
The forum rule that I have in mind is this
I want to understand how it applies to my actions on this discussion board. For example: someone asked a question about the equivalence principle. I long time ago I was in the library and copied an article from the American Journal of Physics
on this very topic. I posted the abstract since I thought the information in the abstract was useful. My next step was to ask the OP if he would like me to e-mail him the article. I wanted to dicuss this with the moderators first to make sure that me offering to do that would be a violation of forum policy. For example; since I'm posting a lot more online nowadays since I'm pretty much homebound I want to make dead sure that I'm following the forum rules to the letter. When I'm unsure I thought I'd ask. In retrospect I think that my quetion mayhave been better sent to a moderator using the PM system.
Is it against the rules to ask a person in open forum if they'd like me to e-mail them the article? I as thinking of creating a website to faccilitate my online discussions. One thing I could do is to upload an article to my website and then post a link to the article. Would if violate the forum rules to post a link to the article? Thanks.
