What is wrong with some people?
They know SwimScam steals material from other sites.
They know SwimScam buys "friends" and "followers".
They know SwimScam has a ready, fire, aim mentality.
Still, they gobble up SwimScam's garbage as fast as they can shove it down their danged gullets!
What touched off this rant? Check out Tony's SCAQ blog for SwimScam's latest round of thievery here.
SwimSwam obviously plagiarized and the person that plagiarized from Swimming World should issue an apology as soon as possible and the article should be taken down with said apology in it's place.
...um...don't want to mention any names...but that person's initials are MP...

Don't hold your breath for the apology, fans.
About the best you might hope for is what they did on Gold Medal Mel's "article" back in February. They had posted - word for word - a release from the Virginia SID.
When they were called on it (catch up here), they eventually added "This is an unedited press release".
Some get their news via The Daily Show and keep up with celebs via TMZ. Guess it just makes sense that some folks now get their swimming news via SwimSham...paaaa-danged-thetic!
