Say you a loan a few bucks to a friend who is short on cash, and he wins the lottery. Presumably, he'll be able to recompense, or pay you back what he owes.

If you look closely at recompense, you'll see how similar it is to compensate, which means to make amends for something or to pay. Add the prefix re-, which suggests returning or repeating, and you get the meaning of recompense — paying back or reimbursing financially or otherwise. Recompense is most often used as a verb, but it works as a noun, too. In recompense for throwing peas and screaming, a mother might send a toddler to her room for a time-out.

Tell those who believe to forgive those who persecute them and fear not the Days of ALLAH, that He may recompense people according to what they have earned. Quran 45:14.

Thou art so far before that swiftest wing of recompense is slow to overtake thee. Macbeth

Good posts should be repeated often just like good food is consumed regularly. No harm in it.

There is harm in repeating and perpetuating the evil military intelligence and allowing them to freely recycle their lies, manipulations, propaganda, threats, etc.

only to have received the partial recompensed for the work I've done as an artist, I would never have financial worries again.

Milica Boghunovich says (regarding Verbatim's qualification of 8Books' praise for Mehrdad's posting of another's work without attribution):

Good posts should be repeated often just like good food is consumed regularly. No harm in it.

Your opinion has merit as far as it goes, Milica. But Verbatim's point, mine also, is the desirability of one's giving proper attribution for the material, that is, acknowledging its true author, to avoid being considered a plagiarist. In that vein, I invite you, and Mehrdad, to freely disseminate any post of mine that you consider noteworthy, but please don't pass it off as your own.

Edit: Corrected spelling of Mehrdad.
