There's an easier way to solve this......Since there's a limited number
of posts that Juanita can use anyway, if she sees something that
interests her, have her contact the person who posted it and have them
send a copy directly to her, with permission to publish.
That way it doesn't go thru Rootsweb and they have no claim on it, even
if it's identical to something they have.
I doubt that Rootsweb would say anything unless someone complained too
them. It's just a sticky issue and nobody wants to get anyone mad at
them. I think, if they want to publish then they should get permission
from the one who submitted the message they're interested in. I know
there is great information on this site and I think it should be
published, but I'm not the person submitting the great stuff.
