    The link for the Other 95% original is http://other95.blogspot.com/2008/02/linnaeus-legacy-4-darwin-month.html. The Ant Room has just cut and pasted the original.

    Thanks greg, I noticed the ant room copied the post. I don’t think it was malicious as I had a look around the site and she is a grad student who blogs about her research. Probably just doesn’t know its better to leave a link. newbys lol

    Kevin: Yes, I think that is exactly right.

    The point of doing all the work on making a carnival is, of course, selfless service to the community of bloggers and readers. But it is also nice to get the links back to one’s site. So, while Ant Room is really just more link love, and that is good, it is preferable to link directly, and exclusively, to the Carnival’s original author.
