Gizmodo rips off Instructables? Answered
Gizmodo recently posted about vodka-infused gummi-bears, but presented it as if it was their own idea.
I tried to leave a comment to point out that the process was posted here, nearly three years ago, but I was informed that my post was "spam" because it was "too short", and "contained too many links". How is one link "too many"?
I tried again, typing a lot more, and including no links at all, yet that comment mysteriously did not appear, either.
So, I checked the FAQ, to see if I'd accidentally broken some rule, and I found it: according to their FAQ, Gizmodo "only approve the comments we love".
To me, only allowing comments that say nice things about the site, and preventing plagiarism (or mistakes) being highlighted, is censorship, and cowardly.
Rant over - there doesn't seem to be any way to contact Gizmodo with actual criticism.
