Is posting a poem on your blog publishing it?

Reb Livingstone doesn’t think so and makes her case, with which I agree.  She acknowledges, however, that her position is definitely not mainstream.

Some thoughts on the same subject in this PFFA thread.

The whole debate reminds me of this recent uproar and this response in the IT world. I guess we’ll be stuck in this unproductive must-control-must-control-must-control mode as long as people fail to deal with the internet on its own terms, and insist on dealing with it on dead horse pre-internet terms.

Loosen up, people.
