Whoa, Blog Plagiarism!

  • Hey, this rip is busted! Prudence Shaun News is ripping off my blog verbatim -- ballsy!




  • I've posted a comment to this blog-borrowing-blog, and my thanks to eagle-eyed Rick Veitch for catching this -- and I'm willing to bet this post Rick caught online is gone by the time many of you click on the link above. But who knows -- I mean, it's weird, really.

    As of this posting, at about 7:25 PM, on my own blog, the site sports a verbatim lift of
  • my own February 5th post from this year,
  • presented sans graphics.

    Thanks for catching this, Rick! Anyone else find any similar hanky-panky going on out there, let me know ASAP, please and thank you.

    Still there when I checked. Weird. Maybe they've got a site bot nabbing content from all over just to maintain a hit count, or something.

    bizarre!

    Why in the world would anybody steal THAT? Not that it's bad, it's just such an odd obscure thing to plagierize.

    i wonder if she's a writing student copping stuff for her exam project?

    OH, I get it.
    Prudence Shaun does not exist.
    Seems to be some startup blog site, priming the pump with some fake blogs so they look legit.

    That still don't make it right. Boy, did they fuck with the wrong boy!!! Of all the people to steal intellectual property from, they found YOU!

    It's just TOO JUICY!

    Steve, is your blog flagged for some kind of distribution? Donna knows more of the details than I do, but I too found another blog that was reproducing every one of my blogs in full, and I was getting no response to my complaints. It turned out that something was checked in my sign-up that shouldn't have been. Donna was able to fix it for me, and the problem stopped. I don't think there was any malice involved here, and something in your blog may have clicked with an interest of this other blog and sucked it over. I'll write you later with more info.

    Thanks, all, and Tim, I welcome the info, or any advise you and Donna can offer.

    Mark, funny, in't it? I knew you'd find this all pretty whacked.

    It's called a splog, a spam blog. Bots grab random content to make the blog look real, but it only exists to increase the pagerank of sites they link to.
