I SAW RED the other day when I discovered weird/unsavory sites feeding (perhaps data scraping) on my copyrighted blogspot material. It’s nice to share my family friendly work and thoughts with whoever cares to stop by and I love being on BC Blogger. However, there are risks to being on the worldwide web from other sources that lurk in the shadows. As I try to resolve these issues, I know other well-intentioned bloggers are also vulnerable to thieving feeds and frustrated at having to muddle through the black hole of electronic and barely existing support systems when something goes wrong. I wish I had Penelope’s magic umbrella so I could simply say Poof and suddenly appear only in the places where I am happy to be. I’d much rather be hooked onto something leafy than creepy. On the bright side, my online exposure has caused me to learn some new words. Here is just one of many articles about the term data scraping.
