Marco Arment on Business Insider’s practice of linking to everything they can:

But what offends me even more than rewriting my titles and burying my links is how their layout so strongly implies that I’m a Business Insider writer and I endorse my name and writing being splattered all over their site:

Same thing happened to me and they too wanted me to “syndicate” my posts. What annoys me the absolute most though is this — drives me nuts. When they first linked to one of my posts they “reprinted” most of it — it took me several emails to get it down to what you currently see.
