"Copying and pasting an entire 10-paragraph post is “borrowing” content like that guy in the ski mask with a 9mm is “borrowing” your car, or like the kid sitting next to you in math class was “borrowing” your answers."
- Tam -commenting at PDB's
Look, you can defend it all you want, but in the end copy & pasting someone's entire blogpost without their permission is stealing, regardless of whether you say "Hey, I got it from here." Quoting part of a post, commenting on it and linking back is one thing. Ganking the whole damn post for your own gain is quite another.
Of course if you could write like Tam then you wouldn't need to steal other people's posts, now would you?
