In 5 more posts, you can become an elder and have access to the most private board here.

Just spam senseless shit like the rest of us do.
Not that old chestnut, again  Scrappy.
I already have access. Have had access for years  but I'm honourably resisting  spying on you guys, cos some asshole (and can't recall which one, I really can't)  started a drama about my premature admission.
Hopefully that drama died down. Ooh well it must have , cos nobody notices I have da title anymore, let alone recalling the drama.

Anyways, another 2 posts, and I officially stop sulking  about it. :)

In my opinion, what counts as published is what the lawyers can get away with attacking. It's so heavily dependent on whether the publisher or owner of the copyright for the media is litigious. If it's a traditional publisher... will they care enough to look? What will they use to search, your name, portions of the text? Is the place where you posted it googleable? That matters so much more than the "official" definition of is it available on the internet. As far as I could tell from researching it once, if it was on a blog even if set to private, it counted as published by the letter of the definition. But they shouldn't find that.
People just like to think they can know who the monsters are, but they can't.

Ooooo . The Gods of this board have granted me an intelligent , informative reply   :worship:   Thanks, Pyraxis  :)
It's my own shit ofc so I wouldn't seriously anticipate any issues, but I'm an Aspie, right? I like to know where I stand.

Now, will you all stop tempting me to make that final post and hit 500?
I've got rather attached to my anomaly by now

I'd sooner question your dubious taste in posting any of it in this cesspit.  :LOL:

Don't count on privacy, though. Just sayin'.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

and a highly valid question it would be  :LOL:

Published means transmitted from one person to another with the intent that the other person receives the information.  Even an email will qualify as publication, under most state statutes regarding defamation.

Is someone going to defame someone?

I apologize for speaking out of turn. You are better than me in every possible way. I am indeed the biggest coward around.

Always. But not me  :angel:.

I have my own dumbass reasons, and don't really anticipate legal action or anything like that. Sorry to disappoint.

It's about copyright, not defamation. As in some publishers having a clause about right of first publication, ie they will not publish a work that has been published prior.
