For those of you who have criticised my reaction to blog copiers then I ask you this …
How many of you spend countless hours of your personal time at night and at the weekends learning this stuff and sharing it freely, then to find someone taking credit for your work? How many of you spent 6 months writing a book to find it on warez sites 2 weeks after it was published?
Sure, I reacted very strongly. Absolutely I did. And you know why? These people who blatantly copy other someone else’s work to get hits on their sites should have more than enough common sense to know it is wrong. The previous individual was in the IT business and in his 50’s or 60’s. The latest “poor baby” is in university, and even ignored the copyright I now place on every single blog post. They know better and still feel OK with ripping off other people’s work.
If you’re having pity on criminals then I’m sure there’s some poor misunderstood gang members on a local street corner you can go adopt. Come talk to me after you’ve hugged a hoodie in your home.
Until then, if I catch ‘em, I’ll cripple ‘em with the truth.
