The general guidelines to use this Forum are to paste the link with the story in its entirety. There are several reasons for this, and it has nothing to do with pointing fingers, or calling names!
By posting the link, the reader can go to the story itself, and see what other links might be on that source. Also, when you post the story, rather than just a link, you can see if it is worth the "trip" to that site or not.
This isn't about anything other than courtesy. However, there is another element, and that is that posting a story without crediting the author can open up the person who posted it, as well as the board itself to liability.
So please, properly post and credit whenever possible.
