    Default Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

    OB's review from 2010

    Crab & Lobster

    WhatPub description from November 2019

    https://whatpub.com/pubs/HAR/7500/crab-lobster-asenby

    Any other examples out there? I suspect there are...

    Not imitation just recycling, I used my old reviews from PuG & BITE when I set up the branch’s WhatPub, some have been replaced others need doing.

    You'll see the same with photographs. I've uploaded plenty of mine to both WhatPub and PuG.

    Ahh I hadn't twigged that you'd been the originator of both, I assumed the local branch had done a cut and paste job off here

    Yup. Where relevant, I've submitted my pics to CAMRA but NOT to BITE, which has hijacked dozens (?), hundreds (?) of my pictures, from Pubs Wiki and Lost Pubs. They've even had the brass neck to crop out my watermark.

    Some the updates I've submitted to What?ub have been pasted onto the site, though don't match my reviews.

    Sadly at one time I was the local branch, “estat, Cest moi !”

    A complete rip-off of my review of The Trotter Inn even to the extent that they kept my incorrect grammar in - “close to main the Cheddar to Wedmore road” clearly should be “close to the main Cheddar to Wedmore road”.
