Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Maybe I Should Be Flattered

Business Insider republished my latest Angry Bear post.  (Cross-posted here, of course.) Shame they got just the text and missed the graphs.  Also, they don't link back to the original post.  Odd way of doing things.  Plus, they only credit Angry Bear blog, not me as author.

Mixed feelings on my part - sort of a WTH?!? - and it's only Wednesday.

Oh, well. At least they didn't strip your links out of it.

But it sure doesn't make sense to put up your discussion of some graphs, and leave out the graphs. Maybe they thought you had some great insight or some nifty phrase...

Anyway, it's still better than no recognition.

I had that happen to me recently for an article I published. They took out the actual graphs, although they did leave links to them. Not the same thing though.
