[Air-L] etiquette for reusing or reposting blog posts

I suppose I've always taken the view that anything I post online is public
so please take this as coloring my take on the subject. I agree that the
ethics issue is the biggest consideration, and anyone aggregating
*should*get the permission of the author before connecting up feeds.
said, if you want to keep something private, don't put it online, or else
indicate that it's private in the blog, either by restricting the audience
or by posting a notification.
I also consider this from the perspective of an author - I post some of my
non-academic writing on my blog. When I post something complete there is
always a stated request that I be notified before someone passes my work
along. there's the point that if you don't ask people to be considerate it
might not occur to them to do so.
Just weighing in here! This is a fun thread.
Best regards to all,
