My dear friends,

There is something I need to address here, because it has come up several times recently. As posted in my profile:

All posts are ©opyright 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 by me and may not be posted or quoted to other venues without express written permission, all rights reserved!

What does this mean to you? It means you need to ask me before you use any content from my journal in your own journal or anywhere else. Normally, if it's an open post, all that I ask is that you leave a comment and say, "Hey, can I quote this?" I'll say, "Sure!" and that is written permission. I do require that credit be given, which you can do by either saying "by apocalypticbob" or "by AmberBob" or "by Amber Bingham", or by linking back to the original post somewhere in the quoted post, or using hypertext to make the quoted portion link back to the original post. If the item you'd like to quote is under a friendslock, again, just ask. I may ask that you not quote me, and I ask you to respect that.

I am always honored and flattered that you find my words worthy of quoting, and hope that you will, as friends, respect my intellectual property and help me protect my rights. It has become enough of an issue that I've had to start leaving "cease and desist" comments, and I don't want to have to do that. The next step will be to lock my journal down entirely, and remove the access of anyone who can't respect my rights.

Thanks in advance for understanding.
