Hi, I’m Cory Doctorow

Perhaps I should start wearing a red cape.

What do I mean, you ask? I’ve previously complained about spam blogs linking to me or reproducing my posts.  I’m not sure why they do it–perhaps it makes them look less like spam to the google algorithms, nor am I sure why they pick me.  I’m probably a bad choice, since I take the time to report them as spam if they’re on blogspot.

Anyway, the most recent offender links to me, reproducing the beginning of my post, but there’s something weird about the attribution… (I won’t link, but you can find it 30-minute-meals[remove this space].crutoo.com/2008/03/26/local-food-in-the-long-term/–there’s no spam posted yet, but I assume that only a robot could make that mistake).
