Post online - are you con? pro?

The last few days have seen a flurry of posts on whether or not to post writing online. There are cons - and pros:

con:

"Be (Slightly) Afraid of Posting Your Work Online" says Chuck Sambuchino on the Guide to Literary Agents Editor's blog.

Kristine Princevalle agrees. She advises:
"Posting Your Prose Online -- Don't!"


pro:

Jane Friedman (blogmeister at the Writer's Digest blog There Are No Rules) feels  Chuck and Kristine are wrong. She says (at Writer Unboxed): "Stop Being Afraid of Posting Your Work Online." 

And to give us another perspective on whether we need to be so protective of those "high concept ideas" Chuck Sambuchino says we should be guarding with our lives: Howard Taylor says, "Don't ask Me Where I Get My Ideas."

So what do you think? Do you post your writing online?
