(Here via the Smart Bitches and nihilistic_kid.)

It has taken me a little while to be able to write a comment because the outrageous arrogance and ignorance of this person truly did some damage to my thinking processes for a while there. For instance, "I do know about copyright" and "the web is public domain" are mutually exclusive claims. And how on earth does someone "accidentally" copy and paste someone else's copyrighted material? And then "accidentally" edit out the authentic spelling? And then "accidentally" print it without contacting the original author? Argh.

So after breaking copyright laws left, right and centre, she then has the nerve to suggest you should be going to her with offerings and thanking her profusely for deigning to notice you? If I could slap someone through their email address, I would truly bestow that honour of metaphysical impossibility upon her.

I hope that you find some recourse for this unconscionable action and that Cook's Source and its editor are brought to task for this.
