RainJacking is a service and trade mark of TLW and can not be used by anyone. Violates her copyright. High-jacking is the same as rain-jacking except all members can high-jack but only TLW can RainJack. When she puts her stamp of approval on the ActiveRain high-jinx and shenanigans, that's one of the original members of the network putting her stamp of approval on the art and craft of a high jack well done. I do not want there to be a misconception about that fact. The RainJack icon was specifically designed for The Lovely Wife. No one can use it without facing copyright sanctions.
You haven't been RainJacked unless TLW says your post has been. When we do high-jack a post we are always hoping we do it well enough to be graced with the coveted stamp of approval. :-)
Comment spam is being confused with high-jacking, which TLW provides the history of and ActiveRain members definition on a members only post here. She was one of the founders of the art of jacking a blog. I am a third generation high-jacker on the ActiveRain Real Estate Network. Very proud of that distinction because TLW taught Amanda Hall and Melody Botting and those two taught me.
There are rules of engagement to an acceptable and unacceptable high-jack. Interchanging RainJacking with high-jacking is a no-no to those who understand the difference. These are very distinct things.
Interchanging comment spam with high-jacking concerns me. If you read the community rules on comment spam posted by the firm who hosts us you will see the distinction. If you click on the red blog post flag button you will also notice ActiveRain has an option to flag a post for a feature because of high-jinx.
The ActiveRain groups Jacked, Wacked, Club Chaos and a host of others devote ourselves to having fun in the Rain and periodically high-jacking blog posts to socialize together on. That's why our icon is a social butterfly (LOL). I believe it is important to point out there are subtle differences. People should be aware that regardless of all of our personal opinions on the matter, the terms RainJack, RainJacked, RainJacking are actually a copyright service and trade mark not for indiscriminate, casual use.
Think of it like getting an Emmy or Oscar. If the firm that grants them doesn't nominate and award you one, do not misrepresent and say it happened or you got RainJacked. That custom made ActiveRain stamp is the same as those statues. It's a blog award from Roar Productions ownd by Broker Bryant and Billie Bryant.
Don't even think about snagging that icon's picture and using it...
