Sorry, 'nother subject: streamlining

I'm considering condensing all my blogs into one, and copy all my comments onto it. Any ideas? (Wonder if I'll translate the counters in place? Might be a good experiment any way it goes?).

OPEN FOR DISCUSSION


A few days ago I posted the Iraq War IQ Test, (written by Daniel Quinn) in my Molly’s World Blog. I later moved it to it’s own blog (called Iraq War IQ Test) so that my other posts wouldn’t push the Iraq post out of sight. Today I found the Iraq War Test , in its entirety on the blog “Stop the War”. The author, Damon Leigh, thought it was an important post, and so reposted it on his own blog. I was uncomfortable with that. My position is that while quoting or referring to other people’s blogs is fine, reposting someone else’s blog in its entirety or even a majority of a blog, isn’t right.

I’ve communicated with Damon about this and we agreed that this would be a good place to have the issue discussed. Is it ever all right to cut and paste someone else’s blog into your own? Is it okay only if they didn’t write the post themselves personally? What if they had to do research to find the complete information (or test) and spent quite a bit of time digging around and contacting people to make that post?

We’d really like to know what you think.

Why are some of my blogs highlighted in shadow form?

A few times when I write a blog it looks fine. Then when I read it, the paragraphs are all dark.  I hate to rewrite it so I color the text to make it contrast more.  Bloggers, do you have any advice?

COUNTERS: MIXED BLESSING

1. I got it to work.

2. Very ego satisfying.

3. I am keeping a Post-it note next to the computer to tally how many times I access the site so I can deduct my "vanity reading" from actual hits (not really, but there is that paranoid suspicion that I'm spending all my blogging dollars on myself).

4. I recommend it. Now let's see how much spam get shot my way by the provider.

BN Staff, Clarification, Please

I am running into a lot of confusing information as to what constitutes Mature Audience.  Is there a set of guidelines? 

I see blogs using vulgar language all over the place.  Is it just what is in the subject that counts?  Is there a place where this is posted already?

Leaving comments

BN Staff,

Is there a way that the person who posts a comment can edit their own comment while not being able to touch other people's comments?

Like, I just made a comment, but after I hit the Add Comment button, I realized there were some errors I needed to correct.  But I can't go back and re-do my comment.

Thanks!
