  1. Protecting Your Content 2017 Style!

    It doesn't give proof and that's the entire point. It's an old wives' tale. You could easily steam open an old letter and slip in something you've just written, seal it back up, and offer it as proof of copyright. An enterprising sort could create their own postmark. There are simply too many ways to circumvent the supposed validity of an unopened, postmarked envelope.

    Just so everyone's aware, the "Poor Man's Copyright" that Sal referred to has no established legal bearing in the US: http://www.snopes.com/legal/postmark.asp It can't hurt you to do, but it most likely won't help you either. From the US Copyright Office:

    An easy way to monitor your content is to set Google alerts for chunks of your content, specifically unusual sentences or uncommon word structures. You'll get an alert when people post your content. It's not a perfect system. You'll get some mis-hits, but the price is right and the process is "set and forget".

    Does the name start with a 'T'?

    Are you thinking of Joel Comm?
  6. Dan; Terra said " Must be the Neanderthal in me "

    It was hard for me to not say "Terra, how often is that Neanderthal in you? Does your husband know?"

    I also thought of saying, "Terra, that's a very specific kind of sexual fantasy. What is it about Neanderthals that turns you on?"

    Is that the kind of thing you thought I meant?

    By the way, I hope you and yours have a great Christmas.

  8. What is your favorite thing to write?

    I can't believe this is the first time I've recognized the similarities between you and Trump.
  9. What is your favorite thing to write?

    Um, I quoted the whole part, Terra. That's the part I wasn't clear on. Reading for comprehension, dear, reading...for...comprehension. Your initial post is nearly impossible to comprehend because the thoughts appear random and nearly unrelated to what I wrote: As for the topic, I've always preferred the short fiction form to any other. Being able to craft and execute an entire story in the fewest words possible has always interested me. Every word is so much more important; nuance and character development must be dealt with deftly; imagery must be strong without being heavy-handed or the story feels forced. I haven't written anything in quite a while. I might have to pull out the ol' notebook and peruse some ideas...

    Well, the whole thing might have made sense had you actually quoted Frank so I knew you were referring to his comment. Second, my post wasn't an attempt to insult you, so I'm still not clear why you felt the need to explain why you didn't shake your head. Context, honey, context. (Are you still on medication?)
  11. What is your favorite thing to write?

    I'm not entirely certain what you're talking about, but I'll take it.
  12. What is your favorite thing to write?

    A scathing insult that is so sharp, so cutting, yet so clever, that the victim's only response is to shake their head and laugh.
