More Stolen Words and Pictures

Most recent­ly, a per­son called Cleo, who also goes by the mis­nomer “sexy1980”, stole both words and pic­tures from a heart­felt entry I wrote after a par­tic­u­lar­ly hard day. Word-for-word. You see that car on her site? That’s my car.

If you dare to look at this abor­tion of a web page, do so at your own risk. I warn you, the ani­ma­tions and colours are not for the feint of heart.

I was­n’t hap­py when some­one start­ed copy­ing entire entries of mine, word-for-word, or when anoth­er per­son stole my design of Version 10 (his attempt­ed redesign in an effort to cov­er up his actions isn’t that far off either). Sure, I also get peo­ple hotlink­ing my images too, but I take sim­ple plea­sure in replac­ing the images with pic­tures of a lemon par­ty, because I get to laugh at things like this.

But when some­one steals both my words and hotlinks my pic­tures I get real­ly pissed off.


  1. This is most like­ly not a she at all and that text is prob­a­bly cribbed as well. It comes up as “blocked site” at my work­place, who knows what keys to porn sites lurk.

  2. All of the blog entries have been made pri­vate now.

  3. @Xibee — It seems like an attempt at a legit­i­mate jour­nal, but not legit­i­mate enough (with incon­sis­ten­cies in things like writ­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy style) to not be caught steal­ing.

    @Jin — The way the titles were mod­i­fied and images re-used shows that a human spent time try­ing to fit the con­tent into her site. Quite unfor­tu­nate. There have been RSS scrap­ers that have tak­en con­tent from me, they’re very obvi­ous­ly spam sites with the num­ber of ads and no per­son­al­i­ty.

    I love the way that design­er got back at McCain. People should real­ly know bet­ter.

    @trolley — I noticed that too; kind of con­firms her guilt now, does­n’t it? Good thing Google Cache still has a copy (and I have the screen­shot).

  4. One of her jack­ass friends on there had the nerve to call me a “sicko” on my pro­file on that shit­ty site for call­ing her out. Hah. I see he called you a “troll” too. Pathetic.

  5. Your PC ID is being issued to all ser­vice providers by Multiply as a result of your obscene and slan­der­ous remarks.

    This should result in you being banned from all social sites and ( hope­ful­ly ) the inter­net in gen­er­al.

    My advice to you my friend is to seek med­ical help — you obvi­ous­ly need it very bad­ly.

    Good luck.


  6. Bahahahahaha…not your PC ID! That’s super duper secret isn’t it? I thought I was anony­mous on the inter­net!

  7. Also, apprent­ly plat0 still does­n’t under­stand the mean­ing of the term “slan­der”. Let’s track him down by his PC ID and mail him a dic­tio­nary.

  8. LOL.

    But is that even pos­si­ble? Banning from the inter­net?

  9. It most cer­tain­ly isn’t, but appar­ent­ly Mr. New World Order does­n’t under­stand that.

  10. I think this will be a use­ful htac­cess for you
