@ptwylie I only take original content from my guest authors – if I search for it and find it has been published elsewhere, I reject it.
As far as content curation, I would take a piece like “Top 20 Posts on ___” where they linked to another post and summarized it with a couple of sentences as to why it’s a great article. If it’s just a paragraph from one article and a link, however, it’s really not that great content.
I only say that because I subscribe to a few blogs that mix in a great, original article with an article that just pulls a paragraph from someone else and link. I’m always frustrated when I hit the latter.
