This website has pretty strict rules on promoting piracy. Discussing is fine, but I feel "here is a wikipedia link talking about and naming the website we all use to pirate content" might cross the line into promoting. To be honest, my post and a number of posts in this thread get mighty close to that line but I wanted to explain my situation at work, and that it's basically a requirement to do my job properly because of how fucked up academic publishing is.Anyone know if it's okay to put the legit Wikipedia link to that site? Or is that considered piracy as well? Like, are we even allowed to talk about these things?
For the sake of education, I would like to post the Wikipedia link but if it's not allowed I won't bother.
I think not naming the websites is probably the best idea, even if that means just linking to a wiki article on them.
