Stolen Views on News

Some fellow calling himself munaeem has set up a blog ironically titled “My Views on News.” All of the views have been copied and pasted, without attribution, from PoliBlog‘s Steven Taylor.

UPDATE: munaeem has deleted all but one of the Taylor posts after having been contacted. The whole thing is quite bizarre, frankly.

    Go with a religious posting? Maybe they won’t use the blog? Jesus thinks your bad?

    Maybe somone else is a kid?

    I’m not sure what you think you’re talking about. Then again, I’m not sure you are, either. I suppose the thing to do is to let it pass.

    I told him. I did this , while I was playing with http://www.technorati.com. Don’t make a fuss of it.
    I deleted the post , after 25 minutes, when he pointed out.

    “No problem and thanks. I would prefer you delete the whole posts, but by all means, feel free to link. I welcome linking and I don’t mind at all if you want to post excerpts of my stuff so long as you post a link and give credit.”

    Thanks and good luck setting up your blog.
