Sealed Knot expands re-enactments to pub punch-ups

If you have comments or suggestions about my subs, I would prefer you added them to the original thread, rather than attempt a re-write on a new thread under your name (albeit with a credit to the original writer at the end).
I know you wrote a book about the civil war, and I know you have a writer-of-the-month mug, but this is not the way to do things.
If the editors want to chop my piece up before putting it out then that's fine. It's their website.
Interesting. Possible breach of n-betiquette by Oxy here?
I stand firmly by the wiki-writing philosophy and am generally flattered when people make an effort to improve my work. But I agree with Golgo, it is more common to add to the original rather than present a re-write like this.
I expect a fight will break out soon.
PS I wouldn't set much store by the altruistic intentions of our founding fathers, see here:
"My plan is to get young talented humourists all over the world to send their stuff to me. Then I can rubbish their material, destroy their self-confidence and hopefully postpone any serious competition in all media for another decade or so."
There you go, taken it off. No offence intended nor was I trying to steal your thunder as it was perfectly clear the idea was yours. I thought this might improve its chances - last time that happened it made FP, but up to you. Humour is obviously a very serious business. [flounce]
By all means add your rewrite to the original thread. This was not a rejection of your input. I've been on Newsbiscuit for 3 weeks, and I do not know it all. As Zadok says, this is a collaborative enterprise, and ideas are welcome.
