Sorry if this comes across wrong.  I think I'm fighting a meat space 
bug.  As such my filters are a little less functional than normal.

You can appeal to me.  But I don't think I'm likely to listen.

This is the primary reason as to why your appeal falls short for me.  (I 
have no idea about others.)

When I write things for my personal site, I want them first and foremost 
to be on my personal site.  I don't really care if they are copied 
elsewhere.  I give people permission to copy, just with credit.

Since I'm going to write for my site first, and I'm having to make time 
to do so, I'm not likely to make additional time to put the content

I believe that your goal is laudable and should be encouraged.  It's 
just that the unfriendly reality is that time and motivation is 
diametrically opposed to what you're asking.  I think it's more 
important to get things recorded somewhere, even if it's not the ideal 
location, than it is to delay getting them recorded elsewhere, if ever.

Again, your appeal is heard, understood, and sadly dismissed.  At least 
for my current situation.

I'm replying in an attempt to provide a counter point for a discussion 
of reality.  So please don't take this as an attack on you, or your 
laudable appeal.
