To RP or not to RP

Writing Blocks

For quite some time now I have been a writer on several different Play-By-Post RPGs.  I have owned one, on which I was a co-administrator, and the experience was good while it lasted.  However, it became quite bad when the partnerships dissolved and the board idea (which I originally came up with), as well as several of my characters, all of the descriptions (which I wrote myself), and even some of my posts were simply copied and pasted into my now ex-partners’ new RPG.  Oh, but they wrote the new coding for it, which makes it all okay, apparently.
