A Netiquette Question

August 25, 2006

Okay, everyone on alt.tv.gilmore-girls knows how long and involved my bullet-pointed critiques of the show can get.  So rather than reinvent the wheel each time, I was thinking that when the new episodes appear, I would post the review in the four main forum that I post to, this blog (of course), alt.tv.gilmore-girls (a given), the E! Boards and GoldDerby.  I don’t mean it to be spam or astroturf and I would participate in the conversations that posting the same item in each forum would provoke, it just seems like reinventing the wheel for each forum would be insane, particularly since the fans in each forum don’t seem to overlap much (although the ones from here are coming mostly from E’s Row 1 Regulars).  I’d also add the URL for this here blog, but remain a poster in each of the forum.  Is this kosher?  Does it skirt around the rules of astroturf and spam by being posts that I’ll fully intend to (and likely will) participate in convesation in each place I post it?  Do I fully disclose that I post as a blog and anyone that wants to can also post here (even the same entry as elsewhere, as long as it’s intelligent, of course 😉  )   If it’s not a good thing, I’ll limit my gg reviews to just here and atgg,  but your input would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, Clearly I’m a Newbie At This

I know, I know.  I’ll get a sidebar going and an RSS feed up and running as soon as I figure out how to do them.  (I’m a newbie, remember?)  in the meantime, try www.givememyremote.com.  She’s great and she’s one of the Row 1 Regulars who helped push me to blog.
