Write Your Own Content - Conclusion

12/06/2007 02:14:00 PM
Well this story unfolded fairly fast. Thanks to all the readers out there that sent me emails and comments with tips on how to deal with the problem blog that was stealing content from me and most likely a handful of other blogs - my original post (here).

Just to update everyone, the offending site is down. Thanks again for all your support. I did get one very suspicious comment that I think is from the site owner. Comment was anonymous and said:

Actually, it's your RSS feed that AllBostonBlog was pulling. It was supposed to give you full credit and a link back to your site, but their was a glitch in the system...but they have deleted your feed and posts now...good luck.

Hi Anonymous, how do you know it was supposed to give me full credit? And if it was, why did "they" (when i say "they" i mean "you") take my daily signoff asking folks to email me if they have news or events to share and replace my email address with their (your) own? If you pulled an RSS feed, my email address would still be on there.

Anyhoo, I'm satisfied. AllBostonBlog.com seems to be down now. Score one for bloggers everywhere. *golf clap* To reader Dan who notified me about this originally: I owe you a beer.

UPDATE: According to at least two readers, they can still load the AllBostonBlog page. I however cannot. I dunno if there's some sort of way that they can block my specific IP, but I can't seem to load their page anymore. But I've been told that my materials have been removed.

PS. The owners of AllBostonBlog have tried to post an 'apology' comment to everyone on my blog saying it was unintentional and that it was a glitch in the system. I am not publishing it basically because I don't believe them.

    I'd like to post the tags from their "apology":

    Massachusetts, boston college, New England, Chelmsford, Sherborn, Hyannis, Medway, fenway park, Paul Pierce, Hanson, Southborough, Lincoln, Natick, Wayland, Boston.

    This is even more fishy, stealing crap and google bombing! Someones trying to make an easy buck and I wouldn't doubt everything else on that page is plagiarized.
