On occasion I will google my name to see what’s going on with our site. Many years ago, I found out that other people use my name. I have even seen recipes I have written be taken by others and put on their pages. Sometimes they give me credit. Sometimes they don’t. Most of the time it is something I can ignore but the other day, when I had a spare moment, I googled. And I wasn’t happy. Not only did I find my name being used by cell phone companies for horoscopes I hadn’t provided but they said I did, I found some very graphic language that I wouldn’t want anyone to have to read and they had it under the caption of my name. I am not a prude but…..if I write something like that I want it to be under my byline. This was different to say the least.
And it started me to wondering, with the advent of the web, have people become more aggressive in using others? Do you have any ideas on this?
