Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

with one comment

They say “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” and I tend to agree, not so much after seeing Hemanth’s blog: WYSIWYG. Boy, am I happy or what! This is the first time my writing has been quoted (or should it be copied) on the web, and that too not by a friend who knows me and about my blog.

Thanks, Hemanth, although I would rather have preferred you linking to my blog post with your introduction about why you liked the post, something that I had been careful enough to do every time I post something. Anyways, that is how it goes, I suppose, in the wild world of web. WYSIWIC (What You See Is What I Copy :).

Update: It is Xmas day, and just now saw that Hemanth has left a comment in my blog not exactly apologizing, but trying to chill things down. Fine, I guess it is time to move on, as there are better things to do than dilly dally over this issue. But before I let go, here is an interesting post on blog content theft, as experienced by Michael Arrington.
