I often check on the comments for the longer articles I write.
Since most of those are of a technical nature often I find someone posting a question, even years after the article was posted (thank google for that), and I like to answer them.
So, I check on my Linux Booting Process Unveiled article, and I find this:
This article is posted on this site as well, and in its entirety:

And guess what? It is! Thanks Joshua!
Ok, it's not just a copy. For instance, he removed the joke at the beginning, and managed to misspell inittab in a title (as INNITAB).
I am not against copying content from my site. In fact, it says right here at the right side that you can. As long as you do the following:
Keep my name on it
If you change contents, clearly say so
Link back at me.
These guys at Section 6, specifically TBonius decided to do the following:
Replace my name with his alias. They even say all their content is (c) nobody. Well, not quite all, guys!.
Edit and not mark it
Not link back
I would contact them except that:
They provide no easy way to do so
This doesn't look like a honest mistake (like some vietnamese site did), because of the editing.
So... whatever dudes. I can write articles like this in a couple of hours, while hangover. Nice that you find it worth stealing (badly) down to the footnotes!. But hey, that's just lame. Or, as you may understand better:
