The downside of the Internet

I love the internet.  In fact, I am so use to it, I can’t imagine how we ever got along without it.  However, it does have a few downsides.  One of these is that people seem to think that anything they see on the internet can simply be copied and used without attribution.

Here is a prime example.  Rick Roberts simply copied and pasted into his own blog the work of another, claiming it as his own.  The original was the work of the genius of satire, IowahawkHere is the original on Iowahawk’s site.  This is simply wrong.  Rick Roberts should be ashamed.  Even after being called out, he has refused to take down the post or give proper credit for it. Shame!
