I don’t like people who are rude, and I don’t like it when I have to change my habits because of rude people.
Lately, I’ve added a whole new category of rude people – blog scrapers. These are people who are so pathetic to make a buck off someone else’s work that they troll RSS feeds, steal blog content, and post it on their own site with paying ads. As a result, I’ve had to change my feed to only show a summary – apologies to my friends who read the feed on LJ and such.
Scrapers – this is your heads up. You scrape me, and I will report you – to WordPress if you have a WordPress.com account, to Google if you are running AdSense ads, and so on.
