At 9 pm Eastern last night, I sent them a message saying either credit me or take it down.  They have not seen fit to respond. Since they haven’t responded, I’m posting this to alert other bloggers about what appears to be nothing more than plagiarism.

Oh yes – I sent them the link to this as well 🙂  Cat.
