    Say you wrote something and posted it on TSR. Can you then use that same writing in an essay of your own, under your own name? Because if someone looked it up they'd find it on TSR so it would look like plagiarism because it wouldn't be under your own name. So who owns what is said on TSR?

    Ah I see, thanks man!

    Though I guess the only way of proving it was you who wrote it would to show that person that it's your account
