Update: To answer the question about my point - the first two posts above are verbatim copies of other peoples's posts, one of them being mine. I am ok with somebody republishing the information from my blog. Hey, that's the whole point of the blogs - to spread information, right? I do it as well - the information in my post was borrowed as well. But when somebody does it, I expect them to at least use their own words. Optionally, they could also point to the source of their information.
