Funny, I posted back in 2003 that one paper was just lifting quotes from newsgroups and here writing stories without even contacting the poster. I got a call from some stock firm one day because they read my name in the paper on a story about something stupid like the airtrain to JFK that was lifted. Which is pretty much what they are still doing today, if they can attach a name to it they will, otherwise it's apparently perfectly acceptable now to use usernames.
