Alarming plagiarism of yours truly.
An alert reader pointed out that this person apparently ripped off, word-for-word (or nearly so), one of my posts.
It's worst than that, though, because there's more than one.
Unlike some of these websites that include the full text as well as some mention of MsPhD or YFS, this one doesn't credit me at all, so the posts appear as if they were original. Clearly, someone who didn't know about my blog wouldn't realize they're not reading the real thing.
I'm not sure what to do about this person, who goes by "The Mad Scientist".
I have to wonder if the other posts are also stolen from other people? It's really a shame, since some of them (besides mine, of course) are pretty good.
Are any of them original?
I always figured adding one of those copyright emblems to my blog would be silly, but maybe I will do that now.
In a way I'm flattered. But I would like to put a stop to it, and soon.
I think perhaps the most surprising thing to me is that the URL is also via blogspot.com.
Shame on blogger for not having a way to catch this kind of thing automatically!
