A question of etiquette – citing all sources

Lately, a significant chunk of my daily read comes from online writers served up via my aggregator of choice. In doing this, I’ve noticed a lot of content crossover, by which I mean – frequent writers often serving up the same articles and crediting the source from which they found the content. Merlin Mann suggests doing that very thing in his article What Makes For a Good Blog?

I found this via Daring Fireball and credited it as such in my previous post.

Seems ethical to me, although this practice clearly has potential to become farcical i.e. via DF via kottke via writer via writer.

Let's talk about it!
