A comment I'm not posting there, because it would only lead to tears

(The idea of posting here the comments I won't make there has been stolen from someone on my friends-list, without even bothering to file off the serial numbers. You know who you are, and thank you!)

Reference, background

You know, you're absolutely right about this. Despite the fact that I know you're right, I seem to be unable to resist nitpicking.

At what point is it theft? If I pause briefly to read the first couple of paragraphs of the headline story? What if I just glance at the headline as I'm walking by? Does it make a difference if the paper is next to the counter and I skim the top story (not picking it up, just reading what's visible) while I'm waiting in line?
