It's not a question of "mods being fine with it," it's a question of links within certain parameters being fine and he's staying within those parameters, which don't include posting idiotic drivel or purloined words. It's up to readers to see it and call him out on it, and if he's using us as a source then members have every reason to expose it.

Traffic to a blog doesn't necessarily translate to money. You have to have sponsors. A large volume of traffic helps you attract sponsors, but doesn't guarantee it.

If you see a blog that is a pile of drivel and plagiarism and it has sponsors, let the sponsors know.

Jesus half the internet is drivel and plagiarism. Deal with it.

I'd rather read plagiarised words than people just being smug and knobbish. Because that's how it comes across..... Smug and knobbish.

"I won't say anything directly, I'll just make an obtuse comment to show everyone my disdain and make the person look like a liar/ignoramus/idiot".

People keep saying "ignore it if you don't like it". Perhaps they should take a leaf out their own books.

I did. But I also guess its the science nerd in me. When making an argument one brings up proof. So that is why I quoted. In stead of just telling Fran she was wrong. Which likely would have just made her a bit upset, I quoted the OP to show I wasn't 'against' her. I was just repeating what he had said.

Renee is right, blog traffic isn't the end all and be all. If there is enough rumblings that you are sponsoring someone who is spreading misinformation (like poodles don't have tear ducts, and that many shedding breeds don't shed) or copying verbatim from forums they might think twice.

I agree with ignoring people who have unpopular opinions. Thats no biggie. But why should someone who doesn't want to ignore someone being unethical?

On another forum basically I got told off for not being squeee byb puppies. NOr for being yay loads of JRT misinformation. Why should I have to ignore what can affect me? Its like, to a lesser degree, ignoring people who say pitbulls are evil. We are down with not ignoring that right?

If an opinion is harmless sure ignore. But IMO a lot of the problems in this world are due to apathy, and disinterest.

Or, the sponsor looks at how much more traffic the blog is getting and how many more eyes are seeing their ads. Loads of insane and untrue things are spouted off by bloggers all. the. time. and these people still have sponsors. Why do you think that is? Out of curiosity, have you contacted the sponsors?

I guess I just find it ironic that the general feeling is that the best way to make someone shut their blog down is to allow them to link it to a dog forum and then have tons of controversy surrounding said blog so that TONS of members who would have never even bothered before go and read the thing. If I didn't know better I would think that you were his publicist....

I know this is old, but I don't find misinformation to be "cute" nor do I believe it should be applauded because the person is "just trying to help".

It's misinformation that's the problem with the "pit bull" image. These dogs would do wonderfully based upon the TRUTHS about them.

And a Boxer/American Bulldog is a mutt. It's not a rare "Bullboxer", and it's only a "pit bull" thanks to misinformation and lies and government idiots who wrote the "characteristics of 'pit bulls'" in order to push BSL.

For a bit of education, the modern day AB was created using the APBT (along with mastiffs, other bully breeds, and even St. Bernards depending on the bloodlines.....the APBT is a hodgepodge of breeds). The Boxer has no more relation to the "pit bull" than a Yorkshire Terrier does.

So to the OP, quit saying your dog is a "pit bull". And for all us "pit bull" owners' sake, quit implying that being a "pit bull" is a "shame". I'll take my purebred gamebred APBTs over a mixed breed dog any day.
