The NERVE!

I tell you what...people cease to amaze me! Everyday I am awe struck over what some people do. Well today has really blown me away....

This chick:

Has been copying RainGardeners blog...not just her POSTS but her ENTIRE blog! Are you kidding! WHO DOES THAT!

Thank goodness she figured it out!

This is the link to the copy cat blog:

People....if you are that lazy that you cannot write your own blog posts.....you don't need to be blogging. First of all....why would you blog at all if you were to lazy to write your own posts???? Clearly if you are that lazy then you have a hard time getting up to turn the computer on, and you would definitely exert A LOT of energy typing...so it is just easy for you to cut and past. That just blows my mind. Wow....

This is just plain SORRY! Write your own posts! Its not that hard....really! We all do it every day...well almost all of us because Ms. "Love the Flowers" isn't writing hers, because RainGardener is. On second thought......will one of ya'll start writing my posts, or I will just copy yours...that would save me time.

I am stepping off the soap box now..thank you. You know I have to do this occasionally!

Please start putting your name on your photos! PLEASE! A lot of you don't, and you need to. I would be more than glad to design you a cute little logo or what have you to put on your photos. This would help cut down on copying.

How do you put your name on your photos?

I just left the copycat a comment.

DP ~ I also saw that earlier in RainGardener's blog. I went to the blog copier and I just couldn't believe that someone would do that. To me it is downright 'evil', mean and nasty. Doesn't she think she will be found out?

At the top of each of our blogs are several links and one of them is report abuse. If you hold your mouse over it, it says report objectionable content on this page. We could all do that on her pages and maybe they would take away her blogging privileges. That just isn't right at all.

It's really sad that someone does that, and I'm sure there are more out there like this person/thief.

Amen, preach is sister! What's the point of having a blog if your not writing the stuff? 'Can't wrap my head around that one!

I'm sittin' here confused and perplexed wishing ya great day!!!

Dirt Princess said...

Darla I use Photoshop. If you don't have Photoshop you can use Microsoft Paint. I created my "logo" on Photoshop. I would be glad to make you one that you can use in Paint. It does take a little more time because you do have to add your name/logo to each photo...but it is worth it.

FlowerLady GREAT idea! Lets do so!

Nezzy it is just insane

Tootsie said...

how ignorant!!! how did she find out?

Carol @ TheWritersPorch said...

I WENT ! I SAW ! I'M STUNNED !!
She's in Vietnam so I'm not sure she even falls under copyright laws. We could all bee having this done to us. I've had 83 different countries visit my blog! OMG!

Ginger said...

Oooh DP that is crazy!!!!!!

So... could I sweet talk you into making me a tag like Darla??? I don't have Photoshop....

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi DP, Thanks for stopping by. It has been awhile since we've been to each other's blogs. Come back anytime.

That is HORRIBLE about the stealing of someone's blog. I have not heard of that. I've heard of someone stealing someone's pictures --but not the entire blog posts. GADS---what were they thinking?????

How did she get caught???? Is there anything all of us can do to prevent this???

Hugs,
Betsy

Betsy from Tennessee said...

We use Picasa --and you can add your name there too.. BUT--people can still 'crop' ---so unless you put your logo across the main part of the picture (which I think looks ugly), I'm not sure how to stop them...

Hugs,
Betsy

EB said...

What an absolutely weird thing to do. It's like copying someone else's diary (only of course also trying to get credit for it).

Becca's Dirt said...

That is such a cruel thing to do. It is hard to believe that someone would stoop that low. I'm going to check it out.

Phillip said...

Amazing! :(

The Stylish House said...

Dirt Princess,
I’m sitting here flabbergasted that anyone would do this. The profile and picture could very well be made up also. Hopefully Google will take the site down. My Twitter account got hacked recently and it took several hours to clean up, some people are sadly lacking some integrity and morals.

That would tick me off too!! How did she find out???

I can't imagine anyone would want to copy mine, but you never know! I have heard of this happening one other time!

Copy cat! Did she confront her about it?

That is frickin bizarre. I can think of zillions of things I'd rather be doing with my time than copying someones blog. I havent been posting much on mine lately. Its easier to be ashamed of myself for not keeping up than copying someone elses.

The blogger photo is a stock photo I think...I've seen it in other places...there has to be a reason why this person is doing this...this is what you need to know...why...maybe next she/he try to steal your identity...should we all contact blogger, leave comments saying we found she/he out...

Susie said...

I can't believe someone would do that!!! Why would you? That's just stupid. People really are nuts.

Okay, I don't know how to put my name on my photos. I don't have photoshop either.

Dirt Princess said...

Carol VERY good point there!

Ginger I would be glad to help you once I figure out a way for you to add it to your photos without photoshop. Betsy has mentioned Picasa, but I am not familiar with using that.

Betsy I will look into that. thanks

Dorothy I thought the same thing.

Susie...I am working on figuring out a way to add a name to photos.


Everyone...I know that you can use Microsoft paint to add your name to your photos. Betsy has also mentioned using Picasa. I have played around with my around photo programs today, with the exception of photoshop...none have been very succesful. I will contact some other bloggers to see what they are using. I think it is important that we all put a name/logo on our photos some how.

I am not sure how RainGardener found this out. I am hoping she will stop by for a visit and let us all know.

Stephanie said...

DP I would have fainted if my post is copied! I forgot to ask how RainGardener found out. It would be interesting to know how to resolve this situation too. DP, stay cool yeah.

Teresa said...

What an IDIOT! I can't even imagine wanting to steal someone elses photos, thoughts, words. Unbelievable. I left the moron a comment on her stupidity.

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

Good morning! I use Picasa. I just posted some thoughts on this subject.

RainGardener said...

Thanks DP - you're such a trooper! I started putting my name on pics for a while and had to do every pic every time because I don't have a program to put it on with. I'd probably let ya make me one. LOL I think I just used a Papyrus type or something. I'll look it up and show ya.

Janet said...

Give her Hell dirt Princess!!!

Crafty Gardener said...

I found my way here from Rain Gardeners blog. What a disgrace that is happening to her. I've had my posts "stolen" too, I've even had my images cropped to remove the name. Now I get more creative with where I place it. I know folks can 'photoshop' and image but it would take them a lot longer. I too use Photoshop. I've found if they are stealing your bandwidth to hotlink to your image, I add a logo to the image that says "I've been stolen" and it shows up on their messages. Then I post about it, you can look at my braided covered coathangers post to see.
Glad to see that others vent about stolen messages/posts/images.
