It's fun... but doesn't it irk anyone else that the website is basically copy/pasting comments that were first posted here on chef talk, turn them into an "article", puts ads next to it, and makes money from that? 

For example that article: https://www.finedininglovers.com/blog/points-of-view/stupid-food-orders-list/

Is made entirely out of quotes from that thread: http://www.cheftalk.com/t/72430/most-memorable-stupid-orders-youve-gotten

.... and that's just ONE example, I recognize names from cheftalk posters throughout several of their "articles."

Yes in fact I saw a couple of quotes from you in their articles! I don't know, that kind of stuff makes me cringe, it's just too easy. It would be one thing if the author had collected quotes from multiple sources, but here he basically just skimmed some of the funnest threads here on Cheftalk, trimmed the fat a little bit, and used that has content to make $$ out of his visitors.
