I admit it. I was Ego-surfing. Just makin’ sure there’s no other “Saucy Josh” out there eclipsing my celebrity. Good thing I have the annoying habit of referring to myself in the 3rd person, or I might not have seen it. Not only had someone cut and paste from one of my Film Sponge blogs, they used a passage where I did just that (Saucy Josh can be so vain sometimes). Each site it was the same: A Frankenstein conglomeration of my article with at least one other author’s, all discussing the same film, and tossed chaotically together. Why, you may ask, would someone commit such a heinous offence? Movie piracy and Google Ads.
It’s complex… You can read about what’s happening to me here. Hopefully, this will be the only occurrence, ‘cause it’s a royal pain in my ass.
Just do yourselves a favor: Don’t Google “Saucy Josh” for a while. If you simply cannot resist (understandable, or course) at least stay away from anything that isn’t from Film Sponge or Blood and Guts for Grown Ups.
