Just Words. My words though.

So I'm reading a review of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, because my other option would be to actually do some work, and we mustn't let that happen, and I run across a line that seems vaguely familiar.
[. . .] it’s a tragicomic musical in three acts produced and directed by Joss Whedon

Why familiar? I wrote it, as an introduction for the Wikipedia entry, replacing the original, far less legible version. The writer grabbed some more background stuff from Wikipedia, which is fine, mind you; that's what Wikipedia is for - it's just a bit strange to see your own words bounced back at you at such an unexpected angle.


  1. aw it's a shame he couldn't give you credit for that line, wikipedia being all anonymous and such

  2. Oh - wikipedia is soo not anonymous:

    That's the entire revision history of the areticle in question. Every single edit on every signle articleis tracked by username or IP number.

  3. Still you don't see pen names or IP addresses quoted in articles. I don't know how to trace either one back to someone's actual identity, and even then how do you know you're properly quoting that person and not just someone that was using their computer?
