FYI - Today.com T & C

It irks me when people refer to the today.com T & C - especially when they suggest that any of us breeched it in any way .... we didn't... not by asking questions, not by blogging elsewhere, and not by sending emails to whoever we sent emails to.

Nor do the T & C mention anything about any of the crap today.com has pulled so far, or threatened to do either.

All of it is just so much BS.

So - the today.com Terms & Conditions are now posted on this site to make it easier for people to check such claims before they make themselves look foolish.

You're welcome.

Tell us how you feel flit.

Actually, I agree with you 100%. Today.com was my first blogging experience ever and I learned a lot in a few short months about what not to do. With page rank at stake, seems as though they knew exactly what they were doing when they told us to bite it and kept our content knowing we couldn't steal it.

I no longer believe that the admins are as naive as they pretend to be and I find it quite funny that they will "not tolerate any porn" when their head honcho is an internet pornographer.

Maybe they're reading the site here and taking some hints.

Ha! At most, they're reading this & planning law suits.

It may feel better to vent about it, but if ex-Todayers harvest emails for any purpose whatsoever the will be spamming and that is against Today's explicit privacy policy (which is part of their gener ToS, not their work for hire agreement which you seem to be refering to) as well as many US state laws. So do it if you want, but you may get you email address blacklisted of too many people report you.

sending ONE email to those people who have commented on your former blog to let them know where you have moved now is HARDLY spamming...

which I didn't even DO, but if I had done, I wouldn't dream of apologizing for it.

To suggest that that is spamming is just beyond ridiculous.

Psyche Skinner, talk about setting up a straw man!

I have a perfect right to email anyone who commented on my blog. Period. End of story.

They can't afford to sue any of us. Emailing people who have left comments on your blog is hardly spamming them. I don't save lists of people who have left comments because I don't have the time or energy, but really, if you get an email from a blogger trying to build back up their traffic, do you report them?

You have to be pretty paranoid to take a one-time, "I've moved if you're interested" email and equate it with "improve-your-love-life-with-cialis" spammation from people you've never interacted with.

I'd like to see the T&C that was written when I signed on last July. I know they have changed it and my copy is trapped on my currently deceased laptop.
