It's basically an extended fight scene in Wuxia style using World of Warcraft lore and models, from a professional animator. Reminds me very much of Steven Erikson's descriptions of fights involving the best of the Imperial Claw assassins in the "Malazan Book of the Fallen" series, although more fantastical. (If Ang Lee made a movie of "Deadhouse Gates", this is what Kalam's fight at the end of the book would look like.)http://vimeo.com/2625538
For most of this year, possibly longer, The Huffington Post has been syndicating articles on their site with links back to the original source. The general idea is to take 2-3 paragraphs from the original source, then link out at the end so that readers can continue reading the article on the original site.
I’ve always found the model interesting, but I also presumed that it was done with permission; we now run a small about of content here at The Inquisitr on the similar basis, although always with permission from authors upfront.
It turns out that The Huffington Post not only didn’t have permission, but at times were republishing full posts, not just extracts.
Chicagoland made the initial call out on content being stolen, then followed up with a pile of extra examples. Ryan Tate at Gawker calls the practice grubby.
I guess when your entire reason for existence is screaming profanity at one man, you kinda start to run out of material after a while.

I intend to use the phrase "The Obama Regime" constantly for the next few years. Fair is fair.
