Seriously, internet citizens, my readers are good readers. I know you would never cut and paste an entire blog post. It's kinda stealing. But one of the blogs I read on a regular basis had that happen to her. A controversial post that, out of context, people get douchebaggy over.
Here's the post about the theft.
It's basic etiquette, plus, why be lazy and cut and paste an entire thing? Link to their blog, pull out a quote, talk about how you feel it's valid or not valid, and don't be a thief, especially if you're a douchebag. I'm looking at you, particular livejournal "community" of those-who-don't-get-it.
