I know this isn't the purpose of your post, but I cracked up laughing at this. When I used to write for Associated Content (later Yahoo Contributor Network), I kept a Google search of my name so I could see what was being affiliated with it every morning. Somebody took my entire post on BGOs and hazing and put it on some site I forgot. My title, my byline and the entire piece, as if I was a Staff Writer there. I sent them a message to take it down because they never got my permission to use it. I was told it was poorly written and didn't make any sense. I responded, "Well, if it's all that, WHY DID YOU STEAL IT? You let me keep my poorly written, nonsensical content where I so please!" Hmmph.
