I was in a pretty good mood until I was checking referrals this morning. Let it just be said that a post from this site was copied verbatim without approval, link-back or any sort of acknowledgment whatsoever. And when contacted? Still no link to this site or the original post, just a lazy mention of the author’s name (first only) and, I swear to god, a petition for more information from said author to add on to the post.
As you might have gathered, I am not said author and the post in question can be found here (I’m certainly not providing a link to the plagiarist). I’m sure Becky would have been more than glad to cross-post to that site if asked but the fact is they didn’t; she might post something later today or leave a comment below, but I’m really sorry that this had to happen today. I mean, is it so hard to ask for a link?
Now we both just have to sit back and wait, hoping that they’ll remove the content and we don’t have to go through the whole rigmarole (you’d think there’d be an easier way to go about asking a content provider to remove an offending page).
Imagine if we had twenty readers?
