David M. has done some admirable detective work on a blog which is shamelessly plagiarizing my blog, typos and all. Gosh, how lame. What is the point of blogging if you're just plagiarizing? The whole idea is to express your own thoughts or link to those who are expressing things you agree or disagree with. Why go to all the trouble to plagiarize someone else's thoughts and links? In high school, I would flunk students who just lifted something from the Internet and posted it into their paper. But blogs aren't term papers. You don't have to do one. And giving credit is so easy on a blog. You just put up the link. For shame, but thanks to David M. for his own research.

Where have standards gone. First, they plagiarize high school papers. Then blogs. What's next? Harvard Law School?
