I recently found a website with an excellent list of open data links. I wanted to provide part of this list as an answer to this question.
I copied the relevant portion of the list (including descriptions) verbatim into this answer. I included a link to the original website, mentioned the name of the author of that website, and included a link to donate to keep that website alive.
Sometimes websites go away, so if I just provided a link to the original website then my answer could become useless in the future.
Normally I would try to add some value to the information, but the original list is so well-described that putting it into my own words seems like it could only make it worse, not better.
Was that okay? What could/should I have done instead?
TL;DR: Is it okay to directly copy from another website to answer a question here?
