A Lesson in Civility

Let's say you've got a website you're pouring your heart into. And then let's say someone comes along and copies nearly every part of it. And then let's say they reach out to you all buddy-buddy like. What do you do?

Well, you'd probably spit fire back at them.

Personally, I'd hope to find a way to respond with the same calm directness that Bernard over at everyday-carry.com did.

He ran into just this experience, and his post responding to the copycat is definitely worth reading. He actually manages to fill it with useful advice, as well as some honest introspection into his own motives. It's an excellent example of thoughtfulness trumping gut reaction.

Not to mention, the site is an absolute blast to peruse. What, with all those fun gadgets that us Eagle Scouts so love to have on hand for any occasion.

One of these days, when I find the time, I'll submit my own pocket dump to the site. And then I hope to get a little of Bernard's pithy wisdom on what I schlep around every day.
