Our curation is designed to send our readers to your site and your articles.
We curated and excerpted your article because it was outstanding in some way.
If, for any reason, you wish us not to excerpt your stories, simply contact us, and request your story be taken down.
We will immediately and without exception comply with your takedown request, and put you on our list of sites never to excerpt from.
99% of emails we get about curation and excerpting are from publishers and authors who are delighted to receive additional exposure and readership for their stories as a result of our curation.
Most online publishers recognize the value of having their stories and articles
- commented on
- linked to
- new readers encouraged to the articles
Social sharing of online content only extends the reach, impact, and ultimately the effectiveness and profitability of the original publisher’s website.
We are excerpting your content to inform our visitors, and to point then to the original source of the excerpt.
To be frank … we want our readers to discover and visit your content, and your website.

Standards, practices, and legal decisions about “Fair Use” are still evolving online. Our standards are higher than the merely legal.
We hold ourselves to much higher standards than “Fair Use.” We want “Delighted Use.”
If you are not delighted to be excerpted and linked to by our site, just let us know. We will take action immediately.
We excerpt your stories the way we hope others will curate our content.
Specifically, if you like a story on our site, we are pleased and gratified.

That is what we do.
That is what built the internet.
