Thief

He's cutting and pasting Taylor Marsh's posts with no attribution or link. Don't how much of the rest of the blog is other people's work as well.

The KOS writer strike article has
attribution to taylormarsh at the bottom of the article. Looks like the guy posts attribution at the bottom. (three links for top article, just above the KOS article)

I usually say "from:______" at the top of the reposted article (that is, if I don't merely use a link...but, I don't like links 100% because many people delete their product when they move on)

There is no attribution in the article above the Kos writer strike article. The links in the top article are for something else.

Oh and saying "posted at Taylor Marsh" seems to indicate that HE also posted it at Taylor Marsh, not that she actually wrote it. Words have meaning, and the standard blog protocol is to provide a LINK to the material you are quoting. Pretty much standard blog etiquette.

Oh, and one more thing. Many of us left comments at the blog this afternoon when this was first brought to our attention. As of 9:32 pm today (3/16) he has not acknowledged nor posted any of our comments. We were polite.

That is major fuckage, IMHO. The guy needs some serious public shaming.

Yes, I didn't see the comments posted at all! And, I didn't see the language or positioning of the "posted at taylormarsh.com" changed.
I stand corrected!

Red Queen, he lives so far from our area that he might not even care about any public shaming from our end.

Taylor Marsh was on MSNBC this am,
talking about the DailyKos strike.
