In ursulav's post on her webcomic getting leeched without permission by a smartphone app, kevinbunny comments:
I hate content aggregator sites with a firey passion. For every unique, glorious thing on the internet, there are three hundred sites that clog up the place offering links to 'their' content, with the worst sort of ads.Battlesheep crushes puny context.
The best thing I can think of for a real-world analogy would be someone setting up a HUGE banner, advertising Girl Scout cookies. Hand them five bucks and they hand four of them to the Girl Scouts trapped behind the banner and tell them they're lucky for all the exposure. In the mean time, the banner is screaming at you and giving your dog herpes.
