If imitation is the highest form of flattery

Imitation is said to be the highest form of flattery. If that is so, what is copying?

Yesterday I discovered that each recent post from this blog is being copied to another blog, titled Bible Translation. Improve your Bible. An occasional word is changed. For instance, the title of my recent post, Who will be joyful? was changed to Who will be merry? But, otherwise, our BBB posts are copied verbatim.

There is no email address on the other blog to contact the blogger, so I left a comment for him, asking him to stop copying BBB posts. I have also contacted the Blogger authorities about this.

Now, it will be interesting to find out if this post gets copied to the other blog.

    Rather strangely one of the comments has clearly been run through translation software from English to French. Surely someone who cares about translation would not do that. The word ‘post’ has been translated as ‘poteau’ which is basically a fence post and nothing to do with blogs at all.

    I just checked at 12:55am EDT on 8/3/2007 and it looks like he has just copied everything – including Wayne’s entry exposing him!

    I wonder if this is being manually or if it is some automated script?
