I have no clue who runs NashvilleBlogs.org because they do not identify actual website owners or contact information on their unpersonalized "About" page, so I left requests in about a half-dozen of the comment sections under my purloined posts asking them to stop posting my writing without attribution or linkage. Comments at NashvilleBlogs.org are moderated, so I figured someone would have to look at my request.

I was not going to post anything here on this matter until I saw that my comments were no longer awaiting NashvilleBlogs.org approval and yet did not appear in the comments section. It is reasonable to assume that they deleted my comments and blew off my requests.
I will not recommend NashvilleBlogs.org to you because I believe that they are acting unethically and that they are not amplifying anyone but themselves. I do not include links to NashvilleBlogs.org in as encouragement to visit their site. Instead, my intention in linking NashvilleBlogs.org multiple times is to enhance the odds searches for NashvilleBlogs.org will include links to this criticism of NashvilleBlogs.org.
UPDATE: Scrape this.
UPDATE: Nashville blogger Kay Brooks finds some evidence to suggest that my attempt above to undermine content-theft may be working: good title.
UPDATE: As Michael Silence already announced in the comments below, his Sunday, February 13 column in the Knoxville News Sentinel included a write up on this post:
BLOG BUSTING: Ripping off blog content, one's writing, is a continuing problem, but a Tennessee blogger has found an interesting way of dealing with it.
