Absolutely: link to this page all you want. Scraping the code and/or descriptions and republishing them is absolutely forbidden. Using the code for your education is strongly encouraged. Reusing bits of the code in your own commercial product is fine by me, as is creating a derivative work based on the code you've found here. But remember that there is no warranty or support for any bit of code you find here. As a courtesy, I expect you to tell me that you've reused and decided to ship my code.

I'm sorry for the all of this, but there are lots of vultures out there. Everyone wants to turn a buck and they don't care where they get the intellectual property that serves for their content, it seems.
