    is it difficult for a website to disable right clicking?
    There are many IT people on here and wondered if they could offer some insight.
    it would solve so many problems here for many writers..

      I found a spun hub in the hopper a short while while ago and highlighted a line from the hub and copy/pasted it into the report box. Then when I highlighted an almost identical line from articlesbase but what pasted wasn't the sentence but a link to the post, with a warning from articlesbase about copying!
      Good on them!

      Ergh, right click disabling is HIGHLY annoying in my opinion and should not be done, it also does nothing to deter content theft.

        Disabling it doesn't really help prevent people from stealing someone's contents.  There are many to extract contents from a web page.
