Idaho Statesman Ganks My Fatty Melt Recipe

20081106-burglar.pngWow. Not even a link-back, Statesman? Look, I understand that there's a fair amount of quotation and "borrowing" when it comes to blogging, but you pretty much ripped off A Hamburger Today/Serious Eats' Fatty Melt article and image. There's fair use and then there's something else. Learn to blog, old media.

Update (5:50 p.m. ET): The Statesman has complied with my request that it remove the recipe from its site. Thanks for your support in the comments here. No need to email the folks there now, but thanks for the sentiment. Here's a screenshot of the offending article for those of you coming late to the party.
