BD we all thank you for the detailed post, but EternalV was not necessarily copying it. That particular blog post is widely circulated, I have several email copies as well, just now, with the debate about the audio tape hotting up.

Thank you Black Veil, but unfortunately he did copy my thread :

Unedited Radio Transmission Between Gaza Flotilla and Israeli Navy

and then he pasted it into his post.

I had made some personal edits to my entire post, and also didn't bother correcting a couple of minute errors. Both my edits and my errors were copied whole cloth by him into his post without benefit of a link to my thread nor acknowledging that I had posted it.

Apparently if someone wishes to steal another's work, words, images, art, and/or format and then claim it as their own, the only thing stopping them is if the originator of the work catches them or if they have a conscience.

It probably wouldn't have bothered me so much but I had spent some time and effort formatting my thread. Now I'm glad I left in those minute errors. :)
