Scraping Pegs or Scraping Blogs

The term "scraping" has one meaning for motorcyclists, and another for bloggers. To the bloggers, it means copying material from another blog to fill out your own. This is also called plagiarism. Actually I think it is really dumb for someone to copy any blog into their own. But especially my blog, considering my controversial style that is bound to offend many more readers than it attracts.

Anyway, this motorcycling blog seems to have randomly copied my conversation with God:

And they also blindly copied many more of my blogs, without regard to the subject matter.

If you want to use any of the material in my blogs, please give me credit for the stuff I wrote and/or put a link back to me like this:


And anyone is welcome to leave a comment below, you don't need to have a Google account:


  1. Judging from the other blog entries on that site most, if not all, the material on the site has been stolen from other writers.

    Not only that, but he's also running a number of other blogs, all of which appear to rely on stolen material (typos and syntax errors included). To add insult to injury, this blogger also appears in some cases to be stealing bandwidth from the original sites by linking directly to their images.

    My guess is that this stuff is being put up by some (not very sophisticated) programming and basically tantamount to spam ...

    That's clearly a violation of the Terms of Service for the service, and someone should nark this idiot out to Google.
