Very helpful.
I'm not trying to be helpful.

Absolutely, unequivocably wrong.  Period.  Not even a point of discussion.  the content posted on ANY site becomes the inherited property of the site,
Perhaps you should do your homework regarding copyright. My postings are owned by me, unless I explicitly transfered ownership to you. Can you point me to the paragraph in the TOS that states that by posting here I automatically transfer my copyrights to you? That's a honest question - I might have missed it.

All I found was this:

Quote
Neither Amiga.org nor it's staff are responsible for the content of user-contributed news items, comments, posts, or other similar entries.
You can either claim you own my postings, or deny reliability for them. Not both at the same time.

Quote
Edit: if you want to consider it "selling the domain and getting free data" then that's fine, but whomever purchases the domain gets the whole ball of wax, not just the domain name.
Of course he does, I didn't mean to imply anything else. But the purchaser would only pay for domain and infrastructure, as you're not entitled to sell the postings.

Quote
Any further insults or attacks will be met in kind.
That's good to hear.

Apologies, and the reason I may bow out of this thread for a bit.  After a few attacks, both here and soon other sites and PM, I'm feeling a little bit defensive and -- as usual, with apologies -- it shows.

I feel like a newly engaged woman who, upon presenting her new engagement ring to her closest friends, gets belittled and told how ugly and worthless the ring is...  :)

@Wayne & all mods, please consider locking this thread as it appears the trolls smell blood and are looking for yet another cowardly fight! You made your point and 99% of us here understand it well..let it be for now and hopefully it can be resolved soon without any bad blood being spilt...of course just my 2 cents (& Canadian ones) :-)

You're posting in a public forum, therefore a great many copyright protections do not apply.

True, but again, this is a public forum, whilst you do have the right to demand your posts be removed the disclaimer is there to protect the site.

But he is entitled to pass them on gratis.

Also, if you are *really* that upset about the possibility of a new owner taking on the site and the posts remaining present, as opposed to just trolling, it could quite easily be arranged that your posts be removed should it come to that.
Blessed Be,

No sweat, and all the best.  I hope that someone does come along with the money you are looking for.  In a global recession I think thats going to be a narrow field of potential though.  But it only takes one buyer with the cash, so best of luck.  And thank you for maintaining the site all these years!

Has happened to me too. I did a How-To on getting a Catweasel Flipper to work under MOS, posted it to AO and within days it was on another site, with exact same pics and text, but someone else taking credit.

Off Topic, but could you provide a link to that tutorial?
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

Nope.  Jaguars as beautiful, but maintenance nightmares (according to pretty much everyone I've asked).  I'm getting used to the Mazda, though it's not my favorite vehicle of choice.  Like everyone else I guess, I'd either invest it, or use it to pay off a couple of credit cards and cancel out that debt.

Are you sure spreading FUD in this thread is entirely helpful to anyone?

@ Wayne,

Your feelings about this site are your own and I respect them 100%.  As for the Trollies, well :whack:.  I have learned so much from A.org as it has covered classic system  configuration, programming, and electronics.  Folks just do not know what a great resources this is to be able to login and research or ask questions to the many knowledgeable people who frequent this site.  I hope the site remains up and running for many years to come, but that is my wants.  Do not let the nuckleheads out there pester you with their empty statements about you or this site.

Saying "Good luck but I have reservations" is not the same as coming into my house and insulting me either.   A point easily overlooked.
