Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Dear Admin of Tuxmachines,
I would just like to request that you could maybe link to the real authors of articles.
"Distro Review - Xubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex"
It appears that the owner of http://linuxblogonline.org/ is just copying and pasting other people's articles without having the common courtesy of providing a link back to the original.
I was quite surprised to see that my article appeared on TuxMachines in the first place, but when I saw that the link was to another site, I thought i'd post.
To be honest, anybody who writes an article will gladly let you copy and paste it, but at least give the author some credit via a link or trackback.
I have seen many sites such as http://linuxblogonline.org/ which get a collection of articles which they claim as their own, and once they have generated enough traffic, start filling the site with google adsense adverts.
Whatsmore he is actually including images which are hosted on my server as well. Once in a while doesn't matter, but article thieves get their site on Digg, the rest of us pay for their image bandwidth.
A simple Google of the article title would have led you to the original site.
Thanks in advance.
