The other day I reminded people of my favorite advice: just shut up.
A scraper named "J. Croft" came along and lifted the whole damn thing. He attributed it — by blog name, author name, and link — but he still bodily copied the whole post, rather than posting an excerpt.
I offered what I viewed as a rather mildly worded request at his site:
Pardon me, but copying the entire blog post and reposting it here is not fair use. Feel free to quote, but this is a copyright violation.
A few other commenters there agreed. Did J. Croft take it well? J. Croft did not. Here's what he has to say:
Wow I'm just feeling that Patriot Unity here….
Ken, you have good advice but you're not the only person who has thought of shutting the hell up around the enemy. You just put it in different words is all. I quote full articles all the time and you are the FIRST to get their panties in a wad over it. Get over yourself, you're not Shakespeare.
Trust me Ken, I will NOT be quoting your douchebag ass again. Hang up your website and go back to watching American Idol or jacking off to child porn or taking turns fucking your mother or dog or whatever it is you do.
And as for Tomas-where's YOUR work? But I suppose having nothing's better than Joel Katz's lame ass excuse for a blog: "look at me I got four posts up so I kan rip on a Patriot trying to spread a good article! Hilk!"
God in Heaven you little bitch patriots, you keyboard minutemen are so fucking lame. I got zero-count em'-ZERO patience with you backstabbing little fucks. It's punks like y'all that blindly support Ron Paul as he embezzles you, expecting that putz on a white horse to solve all your problems. Meanwhile you kick back, write a few words or trade articles (NOT PASSING THEM ON IN FULL-GOD FORBID ANYONE DO THAT!)
Ansley knows what I'm talking about;)
I've been up in this since 2005-look to your right at my article index. You little snitch bitches got something to say to that, I'm right here.
Well, J.Croft, the beauty of your modern picture-in-picture TVs is that I can watch American Idol and child porn at the same time while giving the dog a reach-around.
Is it just me, or is J.Croft wound just a little bit tight? Normally I'd have to go to the World of Warcraft forums and advocate nerfing paladins to draw that level of socially dysfunctional sputtering outrage and odd entitlement.
Eh, revolutions have been funded by a motley array of malfeasance before. If J.Croft aims to resist the black helicopters of the New World Order by scraping and thieving, I'd guess he's not alone.
