cp.jpgA few weeks ago, I wrote a post about SF Gate’s copy/paste scripting. Comment responses ranged from “SF Gate cross-scripting = obnoxious/offensive/evil” to “STFU, it’s not a big deal.” For those of you in the former category, I contacted the company responsible for the technology that Gate’s using for a link that will turn off the attribution link on SFGate:

Note: you’ll have to activate the link for each browser you use.

Also of note: the person who sent us this link, Derek Ball of TYNT told me in an email that “SFGate will be putting [the link] in their FAQ area, but I just checked and it isn’t up yet.” HMMM. Perhaps they are too busy helping the Chron go glossy?

Think of “Ask the Appeal” as your own personal genie: no Bay-related question is too big or too small. Whether you’re concerned with a municipal question, a consumer advocacy issue or simply with consuming alcohol, email us your questions at ask@sfappeal.com. We’ll either do the dirty work and talk to the folks in charge, contact an expert in the field, or – if your question is particularly intriguing or juicy – develop it into a full-blown investigative article.

    Or you could save yourself the hassle and just get NoScript. Why would you ever need Javascript on SFGate anyway?
