Since you asked, there is a longer explanation as to why we try not to duplicate lyrics, and it has to do with the fact that the forum is harvested for lyrics that are posted to the Mudcat lyrics database. Duplicate posts of lyrics mean potential duplicate entries in the database, or at least more work for our harvesters in determining whether or not to harvest lyrics from a given thread. Why put our steadfast volunteer workforce through that when it's so easy to put in a link to where the lyrics already exist in the forum?
