Since writing this blog post – Marco has been in touch and he has modified his blog to more properly acknowledge the work of others. Thanks for listening to our collective concerns, Marco. I look forward to subscribing to your blog – and reading your own exploits in the cloud.
A. When it shamelessly copies and pastes other work by other people – without any acknowledgement to the originator.
Now. I’m not talking about useful aggregation which scrapes the heading and first couple of lines – leaving you with a handy link to the original blogger. What I’m talking about here is someone who is so technically unskilled, un-opinionated – and able only to master the rudiments of cut & paste. Such a blog is www.vclouds.nl – and its “author” firstname.lastname@example.org
That’s his email address by the way. If you would like to send him an email – asking him to stop plagarising other peoples work then that might be handy. Affected people include such luminaries as Simon Long, Scott Lowe, Duncan Epping, Scott Vessey.
