Weird day in blogtown
Day before yesterday, I did a Internet search on a birding friend to see if she had any of her digiscoping information online. I clicked on a likely post, which turned out to be one of my own blog entries! Very funny, except that the entry wasn't on my blog. It was on another blog. And, worse yet, a lot of my blog entries, 151 of them, were on this other blog, which had NO ORIGINAL CONTENT other than my posts. I wasn't planning on identifying the cretin because I didn't want to give him or her publicity, but to their credit, Blogger has taken the site down after my complaint. Of course, my compliant was a faxed 20 page document because Blogger said I couldn't just say that the site copied mine, I had to cite the links to the copied (purloined) material. I'm stubborn enough that I provided them all 151 links. You can do this stuff when you're retired.
