Miffed now

A quick search on Technorati shows that if you use the individual words that comprise the phrases 'Doctor Uniform', or 'Drink mixed top', some braindead thieving bastard nicks your whole post.

I'm honoured when someone wants to link back or refer to what I have to say, but wholesale swiping to comprise a complete post at someone else's site with only a link back and without a single original comment (here or there) is out and out WTF behaviour.

Doctor uniform and drink mixed top - get a life. Shortly after you've gone and got a brain and a voice, please.

I wonder if its all automated or if they actually read to select. Put this blog on your Technorati watchlist for 24 hours and I guess we'll all find out.

That's not on! Definetly a "send the boys round" scenario!

I thought so!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. My best friend is a Brit and I have to admit, I'm a huge anglophile. So I'm predisposed to enjoy your company.

As for the Rainforest Cafe, it was only the future ability to make bribes pay off with my Girlie that kept me from going postal, as we say here in the States. :)

A lot of it is automated through a program called Autoblog and others like it. I've gone to WhoIs and found the guy to tell him to take it down, but I've had it happen as many as 3 times in a single day!!

I gave David Sifry an idea on how to make an easy way for us to plug in the URL at technorati so they can dump them.

Whatever you do don't link to them with your blog our your blog's signature. From here it would your user profile so that's okay.

Or....

I could create a new blog and just put new posts in it ten times a day for two or three months saying Doctor...etc is a slimy thieving toerag, and just watch those statements stack up on his 'blog'

I understand your frustration. I've been dealing with this as well for the last few months and it just boggles my mind. Would you believe in my case it's an actual family member ripping ME off!

I hope I'm immune to this sort of thing. Jeez, I'd be so IRATE. I like your idea of the second anti-doctor posting blog. He deserves it.

This is weird, I've never heard of it before. I hope it's not happening to me, but who knows? What a bunch of jerks!
