Someone in Val Caron has stolen my post

A fellow on Facebook posted (on Sep 22, 2008) a Facebook note that is identical to one of my posts on Sep 20, 2008—The Green Shift: don't be taken in.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but this is outright dishonesty—intellectual or otherwise.

If he doesn't delete his post, I'll begin by publishing his name, employer, home address and telephone number—here is his postal code to start with: P3N 1E8.

To that Val Caron (Sudbury, Ontario) Facebook fellow: cease and desist!


I just received an apology, as follows:

"Mr. Campbell:

"I truly apologize for reproducing your work, My intent was not to steal but to only offer one persons view on politics.

"I am aware of your legal right. I have removed your post and will not make this mistake again.

"From now on if i read something, I will direct people to your blog.

"Once again I truly am sorry for this mistake and wish you all the best."

[Name withheld]

Apology accepted—let's move on.
