    Akismet caught a pingback today, and it looks suspicious, alright. It’s from Buwin Technology and they claim to be powered by WordPress (.org, not .com). Their entry starts off with “Digital Money World wrote an interesting post today on
    “Here’s a quick excerpt”

    I have no connection whatsoever with Digital Money World.

    To their credit, they didn’t use the whole post and they linked back to my blog. Still, something seems wrong.

    I won’t be approving the comment, but other than that I’m not sure what else, if anything to do. Any advice? Thanks!

    I would just delete it like sulz, mentioned in her post
    I wouldn’t even bother to go after the site owner because
    it will probably fall under *Fair Use* because they didn’t
    copy the whole post…
