My story might help:

A TECHWR-L post I once made was quoted in _Blue Pencil_, the Pittsburgh STC
chapter newsletter. The story's author e-mailed me beforehand to ask for
permission, which I granted in a reply. The author credited me (and others
whose posts she used) in the article. Then, I received a copy of that issue
in the mail.

I liked the way this was handled.
