One of today's Blogs of the Minute has been "Through the Eyes of an Eer," which bothers me-- the post that the WordPress.com main page is linking to is almost entirely consisting of original content from another site, Stratfor.com! To make it worse, they provide no link to the original content, just some bogus line about how they just "came across" it and that they "don't care how much traffic it gets." Please.
Here's his, and here's the original:
Don't get me wrong-- I'm all for quoting someone. But when you quote, please provide some sense of where it came from! Ripping off someone else's writing is not only in poor taste, it's also plagarism.
I should also note that I wouldn't have brought this up in the forum, but my comments were NOT approved by the blog owner-- no big surprise there!
