Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
Yet another example of blogvomit... here

What is blogvomit? noun : 1. The mindless consumption and regurgitation of other people's content without adding any value. 2. Any posts referring primarily to the number of posts made, the duration between posts, most "hello world" posts and posting garbage solely to hit some arbitrary number, such as 1000 posts.

If all you're going to do is steal someone else's work (written or images) why not just post a link to the original? If you aren't going to take the time to come up with something even semi-original, at least attribute the article (or images). To not do so is blatant plagiarism.

BTW, The guy above got totally busted by the original poster of the article. Posted on Monday, October 16, 2006 12:42 PM | Back to top

Wow, I made a comment on the blog about "blatant plagiarism" before reading your entire post. HAHA, great minds think alike. Credit given where credit is due, my friend :D.

Thanks. Might as well send the entire blog to /dev/null.

your blog should be an expression of you. posting nothing but other peoples content is kinda pointless (and unethical if you don't give them credit.)

Definately not the sharpest tool in the shed are you Apoo!? - anyone with a half reasonable IQ would have changed their site to either remove the ripped off material or given due credit by now.

call me crazy, but that last comment might be more effective at his site. He's probably not looking here anymore.
