On Attribution

a tribute to attribution

It irks me that people do this? Fair enough not going to the effort to look up the source of something, but seriously going to extra effort to annonymize it? What even worse is folk who add a little footer to all the images that appear on their site to say hey this was at some point posted here, without actually adding attribution to the original source. 9GAG and the Cheeseburger network are pretty bad for this, they don’t care where the original image came from, but, it did at one point get posted to their sites and because of their wide reach the one with their footer becomes the one that is spread across the internet. It’s practically parasitic.

On another note I love the name of the webcomic, I’d love a chainsaw suit…
