Off-site preservation of the content that's leaving TVT?:
Watchmen of the ApocalypseI would be more worried if it would attract the wrong kind of legal scrutiny that gets people in serious trouble.
"Who watches the watchmen?"
Does TV Tropes even have a "legal page"?

Conanian and HirokianTV Tropes can forbid those material from being associated with TV Tropes. They can use tropers' input for commercial purposes. I think that's all I can think of.

Conanian and HirokianSo legally speaking TV Tropes would have a legal safe harbor to give away original source codes of the offending pages, IMO, as they're not supposed to be endorsed by the individual tropers who wrote the content. This is especially true after they have cut the pages.
With Mod Hat OnOkay, this is enough. We are not debating licensing, copyright, or anything else. Eddie is under no obligation to make the source of cut pages available to anyone. If we decide to cut this material, it's gone. Figure out how to preserve it yourself. Locking.

Neoclassicism, AKA the Tinkerbell school of economics.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
