Uncool Dude of the Day
So I was poking around, seeing who was linking to my site. It's a fun, egocentric way to spend an afteroon.
And I find a blog where a dude pretty much rips off part of my The Democratic Candidates and their Cartoon Equivalents bit. Not that I mind being referenced, or linked to, or whatever. But this guy (I'm not going to link to him - he doesn't deserve the traffic) just lifted a few pictures from the site.
Not only that, he didn't even bother to put the picutres on his own server. He just posted my pictures, still on my server, without giving me props at all. Lame. I wrote him a fairly nice email, asking him what was up, but never heard back from him. Double lame.
As for me, I'm going to do the right thing. Next time I totally rip somebody off, I'm going to credit that guy. He was the originator of ripping somebody off, and he deserves nothing less than full credit.
