Another content thief:

Thanks to one of my reader friends for making me aware of another content thief: I don’t use that word (thief) lightly, but reposting entire articles without permission is nothing other than stealing. I tried to comment on this site, but for some reason I can’t. I take this very seriously.

My plan is to contact the site owner through their contact information (except it doesn’t seem to be listed anywhere on the site), then host, to request the prompt removal, then notify the host of copyright violations (there are a huge number of my full posts there), and take further action as necessary.

My guess is that they will comply, as it’s not fun changing hosts repeatedly.

For those of you who would like to reprint or excerpt, you could just ask…
