    no. plagiarism comes into play when you copy published works and claim them as your own. you can use an idea from a discussion with no problem.

    if your using the main ideas of a work, it is not plagiarism. Only if you take the direct information from a work and reuse it AS YOUR OWN is it plagiarism. You can even copy and paste it if you cite your source.
