That article has over 600 comments. Quite a lively debate! I'm afraid I don't know what aggregated means.

Two extremely large website/forums decided to borrow my headline and send users to this article. So "Rock Piles" is being aggregated with other content by other websites, skirting the edges of "fair use" copyright laws. On balance, it is probably better to have more people visit a sub-page than not visit at all.
