I’d Like to Thank My Cats
You are receiving an award –- either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored, and what would you say in your acceptance speech?
When I leapt lithely from my bed this merry March morning, I booted up my slumbering social life and discovered with indisputable interest that 137 bright-eyed bloggers had beaten me onto today’s glittering grid.
But… call me cynical Sal…despite being domiciled Downunder with the consequent confusing convolutions concerning troublesome time zones, this seemed to me oltogether OTT given the general lacklustre lassitude currently meandering mindlessly through the motions of the erstwhile energetic Daily Prompt.
So I had a look. And of those 137, approximately 95 are responses to the same prompt offered in August 2013: responses recycled without notice and without permission from their creators.
This, dear WordPress, is unethical in so many ways regarding not only your members but your own statistics, that I wonder if I can be bothered anymore.
I don’t like unethical. And I don’t like being recycled without my permission.
