good grief ..if ppl don't want their info data mined, don't share it in
a public forum. if it is so important that you receive credit, and/or
payment for your info..then send a query letter off to the appropriate
publication to see if they are willing to buy it.
the moment you post anything here or any public forum..consider
yourself standing on a street corner with a megaphone..don't be
surprised that there are eavesdroppers who pick up on what you've said
and repeat it.
again if you "need" credit/payment for your info..then seek a paying
publication or don't share the info here or elsewhere on the internet.
i don't think the concept is too difficult to grasp.

Do I smell another attempt at justifying your lack of credit to
in your publication? Are you setting us up for yet another round of
arguments when the latest issue comes out?
