Subject: Re: Filk, puns, and other time wasting. From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1998/10/25 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * firstname.lastname@example.org (Georg Bauer) | The point here is "creative work". We are not talking about creative | work but short citations, quotes, silly jokes and such. so, e.g., my current signature was not "creative work" on my part? I wonder how you would distinguish coming up with it from coming up with a line of code, or a line in a newspaper article I'm writing. if anything, the signature was _more_ creative than a line that is part of a much greater whole, which could be argued to be "creative work" made up of lines meaningless by themselves. I'd hate to contribute anything to a "community" who would decide whether _they_ wanted to give me credit for my work. #:Erik -- The Microsoft Dating Program -- where do you want to crash tonight?
