First -- I have heard absolutely zero from Cooks Source -- however, HELLO INTERNET!! NICE TO SEE YOU!! Welcome to my blog!!


@neilhimself retweeted this story: http://twitter.com/neilhimself !!! -- My nerd life is complete.

(tho it will be more complete is @wilw would comment too... :)

This is now on the front page of reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/WTF/comments/e147w/website_article_gets_copied_without_permission_by/ -- HELLO REDDITORS! Nice to see you!!!

And apparently the internet as a whole has decided to take up my case on the Facebook webpage of Cooks Source

Topsy.com has informed me that (as of 11:15AM EDT) that there's been 1,300+ trackbacks to my article.

John Scalzi has posted and tweeted: http://whatever.scalzi.com/

If it gets posted elsewhere, please feel free to repost it here.

And, first and foremost, I am utterly grateful and thankful for all the lovely and wonderful comments I have gotten so far. Internet -- you rule. Thank you so much.

The best thing for Cooks Source to do would be to just meet your original demands, fully own up to their mistake, etc.

But now I think the Internet is out for blood, and won't really rest until the managing editor is fired.

Instant karma, it's what's for breakfast.

Hello!

Came here from Gizmodo, and have taken up my internet torch to Like 2nd Street Baking Co, and to wag my finger at Crooks Source.

Best of luck in your fight, m'dear!

Wow, if schadenfreude were sugar, this would be like injecting Pixie Sticks straight into your eyeballs.

Linking to this in my journal because the amount of stupid in that email and the injustice done was too much to keep to myself. I hope you get some form of compensation, but if anything, the justice is far tastier than that $130 you too kindly asked for.

As both a SCAdian and a redditor, I wish you luck. But considering that magazine is getting a whole lot of unwanted bad attention right now, I'd say your odds are good.

quick interview

Hello! I write for several marketing publications (www.bigfatmarketingblog, www.directmag.com) and would love to ask you a few questions, by phone or email, for a blog post I'm planning to write tomorrow about this whole sorry business. My email is sherry.chiger@penton.com, if you're interested. Cheers!
