Blog of the day not the property of the blogger posting it

SameDifference is a blog that routinely takes articles and content that she finds and reposts it in it’s entireity without permission. I’m wondering if the @MNHQ team are aware of that?

Sarah the “journalist” who runs it is well known for that and believes it’s acceptable because she links the first few words to the source. In this case it’s to a Guardian piece. (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/oct/12/registered-blind-people-assume-things-dog-stick ) Alex Lee won’t have given permission and probably doesn’t know it’s there.

That's so weird.

Oh blimey - thanks so much for pointing this out. This is definitely our bad: we're removing this piece from BOTD now, and we'll be more alert in future.

Thanks again
MNHQ
