So I go to the WO site this morning, and see the EMLL PPV results I emailed to Bryan (who was tending the site while Dave was in Detroit) and Dave last night got posted. I translated these from RFC's Lo Mejor de la Lucha site which I credited. Yet there's no mention of myself or RFC's site, and the byline is for some guy named David Pordy. The results were blatantly copied and pasted from the email I sent. Do Dave et al think that they don't have to credit since it was a PPV, in spite of it being in a country where timely wrestling info has to be searched for long and hard? The WO site has credited folks like Stuart in the past for similar results in Japan, why not me or Roberto?

-David, wouldn't be peeved if they altered the text and didn't C&P making it so blatantly obvious who the source was.

Maybe someone ripped them off you first and sent it in before you did?

Well, David, did you ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe, your last name is Pordy?

Bryan clarifies:

"Date sent: Mon, 18 Mar 2002 12:55:17 -0800
From: Bryan Alvarez
Subject: Who is this?
To: davidbix@optonline.net

Hey, this is Bryan from WO.com. You sent me the EMLL PPV report and I put
it up on the site last night. The only ID on the e-mail was "DavidBix", and
I mistook you for someone else (David Pordy). That's why he was given
credit and you were not. So let me know who this is and I'll change the
byline.

Thanks,

Bryan"

That's what I get for forgetting to fill out the name section in Pegasus Mail after reinstalling it.

And the byline's now for "David..." Cute. :)
