I just read that it's considered bad blog manners to quote someone's post and link to it without first getting their permission. Is this the general consensus?
I was just so happy to have figured out how to link to someone's post, now I find it may be bad manners! To me, this would be the same as calling a friend every time I wanted to tell someone else something funny or inspiring they had said - I don't do that and doubt anyone else does either. But I realize this may be different. Is it?
