It is really sad to see how many bloggers are online just in order to steal content from another, some even removing the credits, others by leaving a small unnoticed 'via' word, linked to the blog. This has happened to me in my last post, IM Clients for Linux. I've found several blogs with exactly the same text, the same hyperlinks, well, a copy of my post. Here are two examples:
I wonder, if you bloggers want to spread a message, that as been already written by someone, and are going to copy it, why won't you just create a link to that entry, from the original blogger, in a post were you talk about what you think of the original text? Are there any reasons to copy the content!? The worst cases, are those who don't even add a comment to what they have copied! Just copy+paste. What do we call this blogs? Mirrors?
