Default Quoted Matrial from printed Articles?

Just like to get your ideas on something that bothers me. I'm not a mod & hate to be the BB police, but.... somethings annoy me & I want to get your opinions.

Let's say a fellow poster copies material from another source & posts it here. Do you think said poster should use the "quote" feature of this board to present that information so that you, the reader, are not confused about who is saying what. For instance:

Personally I don't know if it's the poster who makes it his mission in life, or the author of the article especially since the link is posted at the bottom of the post. Had he done this instead:

Then it is clear that it is not the OP's opinion. It's a little thing, with the difficulty of online asynchronous communication I think it would help us determine what we are trying to say, where we stand, & what our opinion is in such a manner. In the OP, the OP doesn't even state an opinion & is just sharing information. That's much easier to determine if he'd have used the tools provided.

What do you think?
