Someone mirrored one of my posts from earlier this week –
At the bottom, he wrote “link”, linking to Creative Chaos. Otherwise, I would think the material was his.
Now, when I quote someone, I quote part of the article (not in it’s entirety), I put it in italics, and I make a descriptive link, like “From James Bach presentation on bug metrics”
I suppose it’s neat if people are copying me, but I am a little alarmed at the way this was done – it’s not too much different than the google link trollers that spider websites to create content. What do you think?
