A net friend of mine – Bill Mullins, had an article scraped today. Not only was his article scraped by a scraper (someone who plagerizes someone elses work), but he had the nerve to rub it in Bill’s face.
What happens is the scraper gets a bunch of advertising and tries to profit using other peoples articles. I suspect it happens all over the web. People who do this are turds.
Mr. Mullins is a leading authority on web security and writes daily articles to heighten our awareness on viruses, spyware, malware, and other nefarious computer infections. I have learned much from Bill and I find it unfortunate someone (a turd) would use Bill’s articles as their own.
Here is the website where scraping is occurring. Make sure you pay Mr. Turd a visit and let him know he’s unwanted in the internet world.
Then pay a visit to Bill Mullins website and read his blogs on internet security. I guarantee you will learn something. Bill’s Tech site is a daily stop for me and it should be for you too.
And watch out for turd scrapers.
