I could see a machinema being done with Ninja Mimes.
Actually my post was about grief another poster was getting about his bad grammar when posting from his smart phone.
"The worst bloggers actually lift images and videos, and post them in a way that marks them from the blog, as if the blog generated them. Sometimes they then get upset when links are posted directly to the items."
Here is a thread posted today on FR from FOX Nation
With an excerpt you have to click on
The story is lifted from (CNN)
About what Trunmp said on ABC news
On a linked video from Politico
Yet a conservative activist posts a video on his blog with his own comments about it, links to it on FR properly in the bloggers forum, and gets flamed for pimping and not having produced it?
Just seems like a double standard to me. How is this foxnation guy any different than the blog pimps?
If the blogger has any significant comments on his blog about a video, then the link into bloggers is for people to read what he thought about the video, and the title would be his title of his blog post commenting on the video.
I’m talking about bloggers who grab an article with a video, post the article title, name their blog the same title, put the link to the video in their blog, and put a comment liks “Look at this cool video”.
Or worse, most of their blog entry is quotes from the article, which end up exceeding fair use limits on FR, and then people start quoting from it into FR and might be violating our standards.
And as I said, worse still some of them manage to put their blog “watermark” on the video they have lifted, or put words in suggesting it’s their video.
That article wasn't pimped, since the thread poster wasn't the writer and Fox News is on the copyright/excerpt only list.
If you feel so strongly about the blogpimp issue, perhaps you should take it up with JimRob, although I think you'll find him less than receptive for arguments defending blogpimping.
Wasn’t defending blogpimping. Was asking what the difference was between that FOX link (which was simply a story lifted from CNN about what was said on ABC with video hosted by politico) and what some creative conservative bloggers do.
I got my answer, its about the bloggers themselves posting links to their own blogs on FR using unneeded one line excerpts that force traffic to go to their site when they could simply post their article in full.
"So you are a merchant after all!"
