Blog reposting can really suck

Over the past few days, two of my blog entries have been reposted. The blog I wrote about the fatal combination of your cell phone and lead paint was reposted to some strange site about cell phones. I wasn't exactly thrilled, but I didn't give it too much thought. However, a small part of my blog about Carole "Four/Five Names" was reposted to some strange blog about Texas divorce. It had the same template as the cell phone blog, so I'm guessing its run by the same people. That re-post really pissed me off. In my mind, my blog about the name changes was about the insanity of Texas politics, not about divorce. They cut out a small part of that post and then followed it with links about getting good legal advice if you are getting divorced.

I just wonder how this blog will be taken out of context...

Wow, that's like spam in reverse. How'd you find out about the repost?

I clicked on the handy dandy link that says "blogs that link here." it is amazing what technorati can do for you...

holy shit! I just checked out technorati and now I'm on a Virginia divorce law update and the Rebellion Coffee Company Libertarian Blog. That's just fucked. Why have a blog if all you do is steal people's shit?

Heh, I would like to be stolen from the Rebellion Coffee Co. Libertarian Blog, whatever the hell that is.
