[OT] Borrowing Your Words

As a free service at my newly emerging RevolutionPros Web site, I've
been thinking about offering a sort of "Best of the List" section. In
this section, I would place individual posts and message threads from
this list. The idea is that over time we'd build a repository of the
useful discussions that take place here, free of repeated copies of
previous messages, non-contributing messages, and other clutter.
I would propose to take each digest as it comes and do some judicious
editing, placing each threaded discussion on my site as it reaches a
conclusion (or at least appears to), providing a quick way to read
linearly through the conversation and highlighting the "answer" where
there is one.
This material would appear on an area of my site for which there would
never be a membership fee charged. I intend it as a service to the
community. But I am acutely sensitive to the notion that you own your
words here. So I would also promise not to reproduce on my site any
message authored by anyone who indicates a desire not to have their
words used that way.
I'm looking for community reaction. I won't start posting the new
feature for a few days until I've given you a chance to respond to this
idea and we've had time to air it adequately.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
