Just Some Bitchin’ & Some Bitchin’ Links

I know I shouldn’t let stuff like this get me down, but somedays all it takes to turn an obsessive researcher normally happy to talk about her naughty collectibles away from the business of her own blog is a stupid comment. Despite hubby’s would-be advice to just delete it, I’ve replied to it, and, while that should be the end of the bad taste in my mouth, I’m still, well, frankly, pissed about it.

As I said, anyone who reads here knows that I am dedicated to properly crediting and documenting sources of of what I post. So I should just let it slide, but WTF? Why be so insulting? Why not ask me about it in an email or leave a heads-up comment? Why accuse me of doing something to you personally?

I guess that’s why I’m so peeved. The majority of idiots who do this sort of non-crediting thing day-in-and-day-out on the Internet are people I rail at — they are not me, and I am insulted to be included in that lot.

Listen, you can debate my synthesis of the research (it’s welcome!); you can correct my facts (I thank you for it!); you can even be a judgmental asshole and belittle me for my gender, sexuality, interests, and so-on (that only makes me laugh, you ignorant intolerant fool); but don’t you dare question my ethics.

Hey, dude, if that photo belongs to you, either in terms of real intellectual property or the fact that you made that scan and posted it “first,” how can I tell? Even when I use the tools I can, it’s a longshot. The business of running your own blog is maddening enough for a writer (thank you, Miss Fussypants, for sparing me the need to type all that myself!), keeping me away from doing what I’d like to do here in what precious little time I have to do it in; I don’t need a jerk coming along and accusing me of the very sort of thing I make a concerted effort not to do.

I hope that puts and end to that.

At least puts an end to how pissed-off I am.

Now, for those still here, some enjoyable links:
