Today Jeff Moser pointed me to sagebrushstate.info, a website that’s building its content using the RSS feeds of others without linking back to the original articles. Under the Carson City category are a lot of my posts, along with news feeds from other places. They don’t seem to be making any money off the site, but it’s still slimy to use others’ stuff without a credit line or a link back. I add bylines to my RSS feed already, and now I’ve started adding a permalink back to the article as part of the article text, so in cases like this the link will be there whether they like it or not. Maybe this will shine a light on these guys and what they’re doing, and maybe this post will even turn up on their site!
