That's Just Wrong!

I was just over at Bonne Marie's and saw the hell she and others are going through with regard to protecting their copyright.

I may be a small piece of plankton in the ocean, but I will not abide content harvesting - especially when it ends up somewhere that is TOTALLY out of context and on a domain that goes beyond the bounds of tastelessness. Hey, I'm cool if you like that sort of thing, but this knit blog has nothing to do with the explicit photos of B&D I found at the root of said domain.

I will not link to it, nor will I show the whole page. Just a snippet that, at first blush, sort of sounds like it might be craft or travel related. It ain't!

Out of context website*BTW, I also notified the other folks (pixiepurls, knitpicks) whose links I saw mentioned.

I wrote to the site owner and just received the following nasty retort (cleaned up for my PG audience):

f*ck off
you are f*cking idiot
s*ck my d*ck

Nice. Should I get a lawyer?
