Metafilter creator Matt Haughey's response was similar, after his article on social media was featured shortly afterwards. "This is weird, apparently the Wall Street Journal's All Things D does a reblogging thing," he wrote on his sideblog. "I sure wish they asked me first though. That's a hell of a lot of ads on my 'excerpt.'" Matt also pointed out the existence of comments makes things problematic. "If they're just trying to drive traffic to articles, why have comments on excerpts? That makes no sense to me."
