If ever there was poetic justice, this is it. Last week, I wrote about several blogs that purport to be written by lawyers and legal professionals but that are in fact using fake identities. I discovered them after I noticed that several blogs were simultaneously reposting virtually everything I posted here. As I looked into them, I realized the lawyers and legal professionals who purportedly write them were all fakes.

So imagine my delight when I realized that the fake blogs had reposted my post about them. See the images above and below.

By the way, I discovered that the picture used for Joseph Quinn is actually a real, live realtor in Northern Virginia named Soctt MacDonald, who does in fact write an actual blog. I emailed MacDonald about the presumably unauthorized use of his image, but haven’t heard back.
