PUBLIC NOTICE:
I have no blog. I have never had a blog. I have no idea who is using

The following disclaimer is in the BLOG
(www.joecelkothesqlapprentice.blogspot.com) header:

** This blog is not Joe Celko's but it is a collection of his answers in
public newsgroups

On the other hand, the blog DOES contain GOOGLE Ads! Is it legal/ethical to
make ad revenue by collecting someone else's public postings without
specific permission? And if so, how will that affect the future generosity
of folk like Joe Celko and others, myself included, who freely post advice
for our fellow code sloggers? Do we need to append copyright/left notices
to all of our posts in order to protect the integrity of our intent?

Ask Google.

They took your posts first.

They continue to take your posts, and make money off of them.

When you post to a public newsgroup your posts are part of the public domain.

That's where the whole idea of open source came from, remember? In your case
it might lead to open sores, but that's another topic.

I would say most certainly unethical and I would be happy to contribute
hard cash to Joe if he chose to have an attorney go after the person(s)
responsible.
