    Fantastic! 2 questions though…

    1) What happens to all my posterous subscribers and contributors? do the automatically become subscribers to my WP
    2) Are there any TOS differences between the two to be careful of?
    3) I’d love to add one of my posterous sites to my blog – BUT does the import overwrite my current WP content or add to it?

    Can you not get the data into csv file instead and use a plugin like this…
