Hi,

Thanks for the responses.

@Gautham : Thanks to u for ur swift responses.

@Ashwin : Thanks, Ashwin Ji called directly and we had a small discussion
about my concern.

@Arun : Here is the link
<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiConference_India_2011/Submissions/Wikipedia_and_Social_Media._How_to_increase_the_utility_and_prominence_of_Wikipedia_using_Social_Media>of
the content I posted on Wikipedia for WikiConference India 2011, This is
the link from where I fear the idea was taken. If you take a look @ the
footer of the page, there is a line which specifies that the text present
in the above page is linked with CC_License.

Regards,
Ade.
