Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery

Hey Fuck Yeah Emergence:

I think it’s awesome that you’ve reproduced my blog post word-for-word on your tumblr, here–

I’m also kind of tickled that you’ve had the post reblogged four times.  I mean, “four” isn’t a big number in internet terms, but it’s a big number for me.  That’s pretty nifty.

Could you maybe give me some credit for having written it?  A link perhaps?  It seems no more than common courtesy.

Love and rockets,

    There’s something weird about that site. I can’t see any way to contact the authors.

    You could always contact the sites that linked to it. But they look a bit weird too.

    The internet is being taken over by fake blogs, run by robots.

      That sounds like the premise for an XKCD strip, or perhaps a Neil Stephenson novella. Outstanding!

      Maybe this is how the world comes to realize that Skynet is self-aware: Not by manufactured nuclear exchange, but by inscrutable blogs run amok.
