Some people take offense when you give them links. I sent an e-mail out this morning that went something like this.
Since you objected to my referencing your item I have removed that post from my site.
I was if anything excessive in giving acknowledgment to you. I linked to your post twice in mine. I quoted a few sentences from your piece as a direct quote, signaled with quotation marks, attribution, and a link.
To make sure this doesn’t happen again (I guess because you don’t wish to be bothered by traffic to your site) I have removed your site from my feeds. You can rest easy.
