Is Plagiarism Flattering? Not If You Don’t Link Back

| December 7, 2012 | 0 Comments

So today one of my blog posts got plagiarized for the first time to my knowledge.  I guess I could consider it flattering, but the dude not only copied the entire post, he also copied the title AND posted it as his own on his blog.  Shit, over 75% of the post I’d quoted from The Greasy Dozen, but at least I’d given props where it was due.

Hmmm.  My writing is so good now that people have to copy it?  I think this calls for a beer!

Note – Here is his disclaimer.  So, it was unintentional?
