I am not an expert with legal issues, but I guess as long as you put some disclaimer, you should be safe.

I think you need to see in TOS of site, which you want to republish. If there is not TOS at site simple ask owner.
This is big interesting question who own forum post, site owner or forum message author?

The poster owns the post because forum owners state that they aren't liable for the users opinions and ideas and bla bla bla so then you must be held liable so you own it because they don't want to get in trouble.

And they can't prevent you from posting a duplicate post on another forum.
