The copyright notice was like that for a long time. You only noticed when the big switcharoo happened.

Drew is a leach.
He leaches from other web sites.
He leaches by stealing content from the users comments and puts it in this book. Where is their share of the pie?
He leaches from other websites by displaying their pictures in his user forums. He hosts no pictures. He is a moocher.
Don't even get me started about his shameless self promotion or approving links based on the most add revenue.

He doesn't add any value to the web other then letting users steal articles and renaming them with funny headlines.

As someone quoted in the book, I can tell you quite simply that I don't feel leached or violated.

Thanks for thinking of me though.

Since I was quoted throughout? I was quoted once, on a topic I actually had knowledge. I shared that knowledge on a website, with no understanding that my quote would be used in a book. Explain to me how this is attention whoring paying off?

I am posting here simply for the publicity and contextual feeling of overt gratification and love I will experience when someone flames me for being an attention whore by posting here. I will, conversely, feel obligated to return flame whoever first flames me, perhaps using homophobia and/or racism as a retort in my reply, even though neither extreme particularly moves me. I may also say, "Your mother." And I will enjoy it immensely.

I am a loyal Farker.
