Getting ripped off

Now I think I’m a reasonably relaxed sort of guy (my wife would probably say different! :-) ) But a good friend of mine passed this link to me today. It would seem somebody has been passing off my blog articles as theirs. They do at least make reference to the source.

Whilst I’m not that precious about what I write about, I little bit of credit or just a quick email to say, “hi, you ok if we link to your article?” wouldn't have gone a miss. Now I would probably say no problem, just make reference to who wrote the article. I remember Steve Stafford highlighting a similar issue around 12 months back and he wasn’t exactly thrilled by it then and either am I.
