Forum content usage... an odd question

    So, I was recently doing a search on Google for one of my particular interests, and found a blog post which seemed to cover quite a few keywords.

    Imagine my surprise when the blog post, found here...


    ...consisted of my entire opening post in this thread:


    There's a link to talkbass.com, but not specifically to the forum or to the thread in question. The only authorship attribution is for "Chris," who is definitely not me.

    My question is, did TalkBass give permission for someone to print the post in its entirety, while stripping off the author's name? And, if not, is it okay for someone to republish content in this fashion?

    (I doubt the latter is true, but I guess it could be interesting to have someone republishing content wholesale from TB without the names of the authors, and with just a link to TalkBass as the source. Imagine "TalkBass: The Mash-up!" *laugh*)
