Here's what Judith Griggs, managing editor of Cook's Source said, in part, to Monica, after claiming "three decades" experience in publishing:

'But honestly Monica, the web is considered "public domain" and you should be happy we just didn't "lift" your whole article and put someone else's name on it! ' "

As one of the Metafilter commenters writes, "And it would be awesome if someone mirrored the Cooks Source website for ad revenue. Just to see the cognitive dissonance grip Judith Griggs' brain."
