    a tag for a kind of copy-and-paste

    hi,

    I copied an article written by someone else from one forum A to another forum B.
    In the forum B, I shall use a tag (or a prefix), which will be put in front of the title of the article, to indicate that the article is not written by me, the post's owner who just pasted it here.
    What word shall I use for the tag? Thanks.

    Re: a tag for a kind of copy-and-paste

    Maybe, I didn't describe my question clear enough.

    For example,

    I started a new thread and pasted an article, written by others, from somewhere else in the first post. The first post only contains the content of the article and there is no my own words. The article's title will also be a part of the thread title as below,
    Thread Title: [tag/prefix]Title of the article
    then, For convenience, I need some words for the tag/prefix to indicate that the whole content of my post is not originally made by me.


    So, which word/words, not code, shall I use? Thanks in advance.

    It is a word, straight from Latin, very old. The AHD has it: "In reference to; in the case of; concerning." It is not used in everyday English---it is most often used the way I have in my answer above, to mean something like "Here is what I will talk about." It takes the colon when you use it like that.
