So, the blog would be hotlinked from my sig here and the blog posts would be public and mentioning MDC threads and/or members.

Can I quote a MDC member in my sig or refer to them by username?

were you wanting to quote me??? i think it is fine as long as you get permission from the mdc member, i've certainly seen lots of people with quotes from other members in their sig line. i'm not sure how it could hurt?

I guess it all depends on your intention and the outcome of it in relation to the community here. We don't allow posts here that link to other discussions for the purpose of debate, defense, gang-up advocacy, etc. as it creates cross board issues for our community that is often played out on the boards here. So posting things at another site about other MDC members and MDC discussions to stir up a pot here or there is not appreciated.

As for quoting someone's post I suggest you read up on copyright issues in this regard. Most people would appreciate you seeking their permission first. Some people will complain loud and clear to your host.
