Does Lance Armstrong’s Doping Confession Change Your Opinion of Him?

The seven-time Tour de France winner admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Lance Armstrong has admitted to doping during an interview with Oprah Winfrey taped Monday, hours after apologizing to staff at the Livestrong Foundation, which he started but has since been forced to resign from, CBSNews.com reported.  

After nearly 15 years of denials, threats and actions against anyone who told the truth about doping on the U.S. Postal cycling team, Armstrong confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs during a career that included winning seven Tour de France titles, which he has since been stripped of, the Wall Street Journal reported.  

Patch wants to know: Does Lance Armstrong's doping confession change your opinion of him or his charity? 

Livestrong Foundation issued a statement Wednesday morning in response to Armstrong’s interview with Winfrey, writing, “We expect Lance to be completely truthful and forthcoming in his interview and with all of us in the cancer community.”

I don't have an opinion on Armstrong's actions, but I do have an opinion about copy-pasting here the comments made by Facebook users there. I would expect to see a link back to the FB page where the user originally posted the opinion, or a "cross posted with permission" acknowledgement, or some indication that the FB user consented to having his/her comment shared from there to here. What's up with that?
