The Stupidest Thing an Editor With Three Decades of Experience Has Said About the Web Today

 Judith Griggs - Editor, Cooks Source: But honestly Monica, the web is considered “public domain” and you should be happy we just didn’t “lift” your whole article and put someone else’s name on it!

Ummm.... no. Leave your messages on their "hacked" Facebook page here. BTW, fan pages allow anyone to post on your wall. Your FB page has not been "hacked". It looks like they have a new FB page here.

The full story is from the aggrieved blogger is here

So Ms. Griggs and Cooks Source Magazine, since you think the web is public domain, you won't mind if I quote your front page, with just a little editing:

My mission is to educate my readers in sustainable sources of internet stupidity and poor net behavior; and to assist in readers' understanding in the joy of simple ridicule of people who so totally don't get how the internets work
More details from NY Mag here and here.

I think I need to create a new award. Judith Grigg's you have the Series of Tubes Award from this humble blog.
This is blog post 116 for 2010. Only 25 more to go to meet last years output.
