“Redistribution” in its latest form

So if you discovered another blog that had posted your blog posts on it how would you feel and what would you do? 

 

I found this site that had copied some of my posts on to it.  Under author it did say my name, pamiejane, but did not mention my actual blog’s name or seem to have a direct link back to this blog. 

 

Except when you tried to comment, which I found out because I wanted to say if they were going to have the audacity to copy my blog posts they could at least direct readers to my actual blog.  I found though that if you tried to click on the comments you are automatically directed here?

 

What would you do?  Obviously I don’t mind that my posts are getting read, but I must admit that I am not that happy about this.  I blog because I enjoy it and I like the interaction with people that read my blog.  I just feel that this is not on, but I don’t really know what to do about it.  I have read of others having a lot worse than this though.  Where the people “stealing” the posts have claimed they have written them, or taken the photos, or in the worst case I read about actually claimed that the people in the photo’s were their family.  This feels like an invasion of privacy, although I know blogging is a very public thing.  Hmmmmph???????

 

And no, I am not going to say which site, I don’t want more people going there!  Anyway, it is not pretty or well done.  Stay here, it is much nicer and you can read the same stuff anyway!
