yeah, somebody plagiarized my hub on another site, made it seem like it was theirs, no link no name etc, I had a bit of a go, so to speak, then when I realised they had taken it off, I went back to the site, and saw that they were all apologetic, and I ended up apologising to them for being a bit snotty! typical, does anybody else apologise for something when it is the other persons fault? or is it only me...
Nell, I'm glad this turned out OK (and no, you're not the only one...) - however, a word of advice for next time.
If someone copies your work on their site, never "have a go" at them in the comments. Some Hubbers have been stalked, or had their own Hubs/sites attacked, by a nasty plagiarist.
It's best to keep it impersonal - follow the official route, as Relache suggests.
Copying someone else's stuff is just not on. I feel for you Nell rose and am glad that, in this instance, they removed the offending article.
hi, sorry I have'nt answered, yeah it is ok now, they keep apologizing to me and have virtually offered me a job, or something, I am waiting to see what it is. I personally think they panicked! actually I don't know if it is a job, but they said they want to work with me! probably to make me do all the work while they take the credit!!! not falling for it this time. Thanks again. ps my computer is only working at the moment when it feels like it, as we have bad weather and the reception is c...p! Nell
Report the plagiarized article to the admin on that site, and hopefully they will take it down.
Hahah, yea, I've apologized for acting ways when I was entitled to act that way...this was a time when you probably were entitled to being a little annoyed and had to be assertive to get the material removed.
When a person does it, and covers up their knowledge of purposely doing it with being so sweet and apologetic it plays with your feelings. They are guilty and know it...and they know they lost their fight...annnd then they make you feel bad for doing what you needed to which was catching them in the act.
Just laugh, and move on as thankfully they took it down. Don't feel bad...I've done similar stuff liek this before. It's called being too nice.
Seems you all need to sign up for "Stimp's Class on Not Being Nice" I try to make people accountable for everything that way the attention is off of me Kidding, of course
Go to that site, find the pages where they detail their copyright policy and then file whatever sort of report and info they require.
Hi Nell Rose. First, I compliment you on your willingness to accept the remorse of the plagiarist. It speaks volumes about you as a person.
Secondly, you did not actually apologize for something that was someone else's fault but rather, for what you felt was your "snotty" response. In other words, you did not apologize for them plagiarizing your material, but for your response to it.
In any case, I am so glad it worked out well. As they say, all's well that ends well. Have a stellar day.
Hi Nell Rose.
What was the site that you found your work on?
This then gives others here the opportunity to check to see if their work is also there.
If you prefer not to post that site in the forum; I would appreciate it if you could email the identity to me please
I am doing an article on this subject and would appreciate the evidentiary information.
Oh hell.... I've apologized to the fridge for backing into it, before! lol
For some people, I think it's just a reflex. I'm glad you caught the person.... imitation may be flattery, but outright copying is just the lazy person's way of getting the flattery themselves for something that is well written.
Hi, this is just an update for people to check whether their work has been copied (stolen!) ggrrr... I have written it all down on Pearldivers comment. but I will give the name here again. it is 'Paranormal And Strange World' with a link to something called 123 people. just in case you want to check. okay? thanks.

Is anyone else being plagiarized by free article websites?I recently discovered multiple 'free article' websites that have been copying my articles and pasting them to their own site. They give the web address to the original, but that doesn't make it okay when the entire article is right there....

As your thread is closed now, I answer you here.I'm sorry to know a hub was written about you. I didn't read it. It must be unpublished.Anyway, I like the way he writes. I wanted you to know I'm following him, but not because of that hub, which I'm sure I would have found disgusting.Why someobody...

I recently filed about a dozen DMCA's and have gotten pretty good results. A couple google or godaddy asked for more specific information as to where the problem text was on the site, but all but one have been taken down now and I expect that one to follow shortly.One site owner, however, sent a...
