Spamming Mary

I visited Technorati the other day checking to see who was linked to Homer's Travels and noticed that a German website was listed. I followed the link and, to my surprise, discovered that some spam site had lifted my post about the Mary Apparition, translated it into German, and posted it. What the heck?

Should I be worried about this? Is it just one of those things that just happens on the Internets and we have to live with? I just don't want to be associated, even indirectly, with a spam site.

  1. Wow, I've worked in IT a long time, and that's the oddest thing I've heard of in a long time. I can't even tell you whether or not to be worried, but maybe that's just the way the internets are going these days.

    I'm scared to think which one of mine they might choose...

  2. GH, I have to rethink this. They have done nothing to violate the creative commons license except maybe they are making money using it. They did link back to the original source.

    I think I may have to change the copyright for Homer's Travels.
