holy mother of god, it's teh internets

I'll write about BFF soon, but this seems more important right now:

Christ on a cracker, I'd be unimaginably pissed. I think of daysgoby as my place to talk about my life, my stories, my world. This is not a book of tales to be re-told in your own words, with your own characters.

This is sick and wrong and terrible.

That is just horrible. I can't believe how sick some people are. I had been thinking of copyrighting my blog and this prompted to start the process.

This makes me incredibly sad and angry.

And it makes me hate the Internet.

Jenty said...

Oy, that's HECTIC!!

Lisa b said...

hell yeah. I just read that too. As if ripping of someone's writing isn't bad enough.

Thanks, daysgoby... didja see the latest? Apparently he's been ripping off others, too. That helps, to know he's not just focusing on me.

I'm settling in tonight with a big, fat piece of chocolate cake to do some googling. fun stuff!

Hey Jess: Thanks for bringing this issue up in your post. Very sad. All this Cooper person has to do is be himself, and not someone else. I modified my Copyright statement a bit, so there is no question about the blog and all within it (unless otherwise referenced) being protected.

That is one sorry excuse for a blogger. I'm sorry Kate (and the others) experienced it.

C R A Z Y!!!

He even RIPS OFF PHOTOS. I'm horrified.

Chantal said...

Unreal, WHY, WHY would someone do that.

Ree said...

holy crap. Thanks for letting us know. I don't know if putting up a copyright notice will stop it, but geez oh petes.

Suzanne said...

I found Father Tony's update, that this may be the original person he'd told Kate about that pulled this stunt several years ago.

Wow, this story was mind-boggling. But thank you for introducing me to sweet/ salty's blog, she is a wonderful writer.
