@7: I'm positive I'm not the only one to notice, and awareness in the lj community is on the rise. Lets be fair on this though. If you don't cite your sources, it's called plagiarism. It's well known that the wowinsider staff monitors livejournal for it's "news," and thats fine... it gives wowinsider more stuff to talk about, and occasionally a discussion on here augments something that happened on lj. What you seem to think is that since wowinsider "regularly" cites lj as a source, that it somehow makes it okay when they don't. That is just plain wrong. Make a freaking wow_ladies / wow-lj tag, and tag your stuff to give proper credit in finding this stuff. I'm not asking for anything unreasonable, i'm simply asking wowinsider for some integrity. Mention the lj community at the start of the article. Otherwise wowinsider is both being both dishonest and exploitative....and while its good advice for me to "get over myself," it doesn't solve the issues of wowisider plagiarizing from other wow blogs, or of being dishonest and exploitative.
