  You are correct. Your point is valid. I should apologize.

However, the articles are $30 each. I am sorry. It is not right, esp. given Paul's comment that this is cheap. No, it is not. 

It is common to post the articles on ResearchGate and invite to share. It would also be possible to tweak the text and then make it public. Otherwise it is a bit out of whack with the common practices these days.

Have you actually read the papers? Your incongruous response leads me
to suspect that you haven't and have 'got the wrong end of the stick'.
