Ya-har, it's blogging piracy — Part 2
If you missed Part 1, it's here.
Mr. Pheer was kind enough to offer a response of sorts to my previous post, although it has since been removed. He correctly pointed out that my site was set up in such a manner that it had a fully syndicated RSS feed. Fair enough.
Interested to learn more about the site I was now a contributor for, I decided to have a look in my limited bag of tricks to learn more about my new business enterprise. After all, as a professional journalist, my as-of-yet good name is my saleable asset. It's what pays the bills, and I'd like to think my byline is attached only to content of the highest quality.
Needless to say, that wasn't exactly what I found. (Link removed)
I have since changed my site so that it only offers a limited feed, something that I hope does not interfere with other fine feed services like hockeyblogs.org, Sharkspage, Newsgator, Bloglines and others from which many of my readers visit.
Mr. Pheer, while I wish you well in your new hockey venture, I would ask that I no longer be listed as a contributing member. For that, I'll stick with The Globe and Mail.
My sincere thanks.
UPDATE I have since been removed as a contributor. (Mr. Ovadia is going at it alone.)
