About moderating again
Hi all, I hope you are fine.
It�s me again about moderating. I have noticed that in the last weeks, many members have uploaded exams papers. Some of them are clearly not the member�s work, but official  exams, sometimes stated on the paper. But other times, I know that it is a copy, but I don�t know the source. What shall we do, accept them or report them?

We should report them, in order to protect the people who actually did all the work, be it a teacher or a team from the ministry of education. That is my opinion.

If the name on the contribution is different to the members name then I believe we are justified in reporting them, though I have not done so, so far.

When people mind their craft they dont have time to critize others.

I dont think copies of official exams can be allowed - the copyright belongs to the exam board, doesnt it?

I thought we had agreed that members could upload supplementary exercises to text books, as long as they clearly state the text? I do not understand why these contributions are being reported. If you dont use that particular coursebook, dont download the ws. But why prevent others? 
The same thing with excellent wss  which have sections of listening, without the link. Many of these exercises can be improvised, if the teacher wants to do them. Mainly though, these are exercises in the same category as my point above. A sizeable section of the community will have that particular resource. Why deprive them?

We should just take a break. Take a deep breath with our masks on and go for a deserved rest.
