Reasons to hate the internet – 1

Plagiarism in Blog Posts

So the other day I was writing some code and needed to know how to do an efficient subquery using eloquent in Laravel. So I dig out a book, which did not really go into enough detail for my needs so I do an internet search.

The first entry in the results was essentially a copy of the details I could find on the Laravel docs but with less detail. So I go to the second record, which is exactly the same as the text on the first. So I try the third and guess what, exactly the same as the first two. I did ask myself why people do this but then I realise it is to get the ad revenue. Bloody useless and Bloody annoying.
