  1. Mr. Gerechter, as you well know, having blocked me on Twitter, I have asked you to take down a stolen post you lifted from my blog:
    Your post:
    Stolen from my 2015 post
    Writing ‘guest blogger’ in the title is not attribution. Please remove this stolen material from your blog.

    1. According to my website, it has been removed. However, I will look into it again and see what happened.
      I did not intend to “steal” your words. In actuality, you are the first person who ever complained about any content. With over 76,000 hits through the years and thousands of followers, I stand corrected.
