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

People do it all the time.  Look at CIRCLEID as an example.  Most of the posts there are also posted to the individuals blogs.  Different blogs have different audiences - some are more personal - others are clear communities surrounding specific topics of interest.  Sometimes people try out version 1.0 on there personal blog and then post version 2.0 on a community like CIRCLEID

I will say this as an aggregator.  I know some people who post 100% of their personal stuff on a collective blog -- after a while of filtering through the duplicate posts, I detect it and drop the personal blog from my aggregation.

There is a frequency-to-noise ratio issue.  Duplicates become noise.  People will seek to filter the noise if it becomes a problem.
