The Agonist and the eczema
If I were itching to rip off someone's commentary on the Sean-Paul Kelley plagiarism kerfuffle, I'd rip off Acidman's:
[N]obody plagiarizes MY stuff. I would be flattered if someone did, but only a really desperate, mind-numbed individual would WANT to.
Over the years, I've found bits and pieces of stuff I've done in, um, unauthorized mirrors. Sometimes it's almost amusing. Then again, if I were living off the income from this site, I'd be annoyed. (I'd also probably be starving, but that's another story.)

If I were living off of the income from MY site...I would owe some money to my readers...
Hey, I can match you self-deprecating remark for self-deprecating remark...!
Er, "I'm so broke, I can't pay attention"?
"I hope nobody ever feels that something I write is worth the trouble to steal. They'd only return later and sue me for misrepresentation."
"I was so poor as a kid, our idea of entertainment was sitting on the front stoop and watching people walk by."
"You had a front stoop on your house?"
"Who said anything about having a house?"
