What happens when a link appears on the FPP and the content owner doesn't like it?

On a mailing list elsewhere, there is currently a discussion about a prolific blogger who is into the same subject as the mailing list (music-related) who seems to live by the mantra, "it is better to seek forgiveness than permission." He posts content without asking, and gets butthurt when someone asks him to remove it. This has caused many complaints about this person and blog. Someone in the discussion about said blogger posed this question:
I wonder how many people get pissed off at Boing Boing or Metafilter when someone links to their page and writes a blurb about it without their permission?
So, what's the answer, Mefites & Mods?
