Rob (a.k.a. dotRob),
Please explain to me why you have copied and posted my article on your site as if it were your own.
If you like the article, that is great, but you should instead post your own comment on your site encouraging others to read it and then provide a link to my site so they can read the original. The way you have presented it here makes it look like you are trying to take credit for my writing.
Please remove my writing from your site and provide the link instead.
I tried to send this to dotRob via his contact page so that we could address this in private and he could save face, assuming it was an innocent mistake and perhaps he didn't realize how rude this is, and that it really is an act of plagiarism. However after taking the time to write this, I got an error message saying that the message could not be sent “probably due to an error with the email server”. So, hopefully, since Rob found my article, perhaps he is reading the rest of my posts and will receive this message this way instead and make the appropriate amends. It's a shame I had to go public like this, but Rob, you left me no choice. I hope that copying other people's work is not a habit with you.
