This morning, I visited a little tiny blog that seemed dedicated to publishing Ron Paul articles after learning that the person in charge of that blog — purportedly a Ron Paul supporter — had copied and posted a portion of a post from my blog but failed to give attribution to the person who wrote it: Me!
In leaving a message to the person in charge of that blog, I simply asked that he add proper attribution to my work as blogging etiquette dictates and said, otherwise, you’re just a “word thief.” Apparently, my choice of words set him off to the point that, 90 minutes ago, he sent the cryptic threat message below via e-mail:
Blog author Bob McCarthy in this recent article (linked below) compares supporters of Presidential hopeful Ron Paul to Al Caida terrorist sleeper cells
How is that for a lead in for your article? It should give your article quite a draw.
The blue-letter words represent two examples of his poor spelling, while the red-letter words indicate his inability to follow through on a promise (i.e., he didn’t include any link).
Unfortunately, he did not explain where in cyberspace he had posted the first line of his message above, hence the reason for me publishing this chronology of events: I want to ensure folks that, regardless of what he has said — or might say — about me and/or my blog in cyberspace, I plan to remain a Ron Paul supporter until someone shows me a better alternative.
[Editor’s Note: I’ve chosen to exclude mention of both the name of the blog and the screen name of the person with whom I had the exchange described above a, hopefully, he will see the error in his ways and, in turn, his blog will prosper.
