though i don't know the story/incident and you don't have to revive it, i still can't help giggling at your comment. i'm sure it wasn't intentional.

Thank you, Ann! I appreciate the head's up! Now, I'm giggling about you needing a reminder... I haven't tried to re-use anything... (grinning at you!)

What if the source is a post that I originally posted at Bubblews? I can't provide a link as the original posting no longer exists.

Alex is referring to content already/still on the web. If it no longer is a web post, then it isn't considered as recycled.

@JolietJake @Gina145 Yes. That is how I have been looking at it.

I have all of my Bubblews stories on my computer. I rewrite them, touch them up and use them here. It no problem because they are not on line anymore. I rewrite not to change them but to improve them...@Gina145

Yes thanks very much for the reminder Admin. These sources can be valuable in discussion making, but in the right context according to myLot guidelines.

Makes sense. Can we post revised versions of older posts that are no longer on the web?

@akalinus That would be really weird! One of my Epinions posts was plagiarized and put...on a plagiarism website for college kids. I reported the site to the FBI. Not sure if it's still there.

@GoAskAlice I have some saved Bubblews posts that I might rework and post here. I'd probably say something like: "This is an updated version of a post some of you may have seen on Bubblews (or 'the site that will not be named.')"

Makes sense, but sometimes people cannot see the obvious. Thanks for the advisement.

Thank you. One myLotter suggested to me that the content is quite acceptable if you rewrite it in your own words.Was this information incorrect?

Well, yes, and no. It's a bit subjective I suppose. It would depend on how re-written it was.

which content will you be rewriting @gita17112016? your own or from other sources (ex. news story that you want to add commentary to)?

@GoAskAlice I think I'm safe but was wondering about the encouragement emails I send out. They are not for money and are not posted on line but I do sometimes share them here for input. Is that within the guidelines?

Does this include your own work? I don't use anyone else's content unless it is public domain and I always cite it in what I write. Slightly confused by your post.

@hereandthere When you see something that looks like an interesting thing to share, be sure it says somewhere near the end that it is public domain. It is free to share since the copyright expired or the person who originated it made it available to everyone in public domain. If you don't see public domain anywhere on what you want to share, it isn't free to share and the author of the article is getting paid for that article and you using any of its content, is stealing.

Thanks for the reminder. I haven't done much paid posts in the past. What can we do when we discover a repost.
