You know you’re a loser when you suck at plagiarism

Ian Lurie Jul 3 2010

If you can’t cut-and-paste and do it right, you’re really short on skills.

Here’s someone who stole an entire page from The unFun Parent, a site that’s only 4 days old, and left in the image with my name on it.

Clearly he/she is using a scraper. That doesn’t make them any less of a loser, though.

It’s so pathetic that, on a mellow Saturday morning, I almost don’t want to belt whoever did this in the mouth.

Oh, wait, I lied. I still want to kick your teeth in, whoever you are.

  1. Okay, this can’t be real. If it is, this guy gets my vote for the dumbest person on the planet.

  2. That’s so uncool that it becomes cool again – and then uncool once more.

  3. Ian,
    Incredibly dumb. There is a good chance they don’t even know. Some use programming to grab up posts based on a certain criteria. Worse, are the new programs that shuffle the deck, creating new posts out of old posts.

    @Rich I’m sure it’s a scraper – you’re right.

  5. This is it – we have reached the bottom!
    At least you got quoted, Ian :-)

  6. Well, as of this posting, it appears that the site involved is down or has changed. If I’m wrong or it happens again though, let me know. I can probably help you get the content removed.
    Sorry to hear that you got spammed!
