Can you remove the Pasted From link when pasting a link in OneNote?

Posted on 2009-12-30

Everytime I copy a link into OneNote it also copies where I copied the link from.  For example when I highlight a portion of this page called Question Tips and paste into OneNote it looks like this:

Question Tips

Pasted from <>

I work with a lot of web apps and am constantly pasting troubleshooting documentation into OneNote but have to go back through and remove this extra data.

Does anyone know if it is possible remove this when pasting and just allow it to paste the content only?

    Actually I don't want the entire line to show up when I paste.  I would prefer it to paste just what I copied and not add the additional line.
