Yea if you reference a pose you should say where you referenced it from, even if the character looks nothing like the pose you referenced.

I personally think, referencing is ok when the person does credit you when they used an image you made.
Something like tracing and copying should only be allowed if it is a free source and the original artist was credited too here.

Well honestly you can trace and highly reference any image you want, you just can't post it without contacting the original artist first or giving credit.

Highly referencing is a great learning tool, It can help you learn how to do things you had trouble figuring out on your own.

Yeah true. Well the publishing thing is the thing which makes it eventually critical. When it is for personal use it is not the problem.
And I agree, tracing and referencing helped me with learning to draw proportions better. When I was new on the internet I never heard about crediting and what was correct, what was even legal and some people had to tell me that tracing or referencing and publishing that image without even asking the original artist or give credit it illegal or not ethically correct, so I have put them down again.
By now I luckily do not need to trace something anymore because I have learned from it a lot and can make my own bases and lineart and stuff.

It's not much of a secret there's even tutorials on how to do this on you-tube.
