WARNING: Who else is using YOUR WF Posts?

by Ernie Lo 28 replies
I can't believe the nerve of some people!

I was on DigitalPoint forums before (yes please forgive me for being on that wasteofspace...ehh place) and I came across a thread made that sounded familiar to me.

It didn't take long for me to work out that I had read the same post WORD FOR WORD over here on Warrior Forum by Jason Moffatt.

The idiot on DP was making out like she wrote it and it was her thoughts....

So yeah watch out, some people will do anything to promote their sig link, even if it means being too lazy to type up their own forum posts!

        Even as a n00b to this forum and topic, I take it for granted that if I get lucky and post a good idea, that someone is going to take it and run with it.

          Unfortunately, that may happen. That doesn't make it right, just like it isn't right for people to post other people's products on warez-theft sites.

        Oops. I spelled it wrong, didn't I? :p Reminds me of when my sister was young. She called Documentaries "documenteraries". It was cute.

        "Ornery" means "mean and ill tempered", according to the Urban Dictionary.

          That is ridiculous that anyone would do such a thing. You are right on that, at least if they are too lazy to create their own posts, they won't create that many great products if any. Wow, that is sad, but you know if you find that your post was copied that is a good form of flattery. It means you did a good job.

    Ernie, while I think you'd go insane if you were to try and do anything about this plagiarism, you make a good point.

    It's worthwhile remembering that there's sometimes upwards of 1500 people logged on to the WF - you'd have to be pretty naive to think that they're all up-standing model citizens.

I've caught him 3 times so far and posted comments to direct DP members back to the original WSO (and at the usually lower price). He does this as soon as he buys it while the WSO is still running, which is bad form in my opinion.

      Mike this has happened with my WSO also.
      My report was given in DP as freebie...
      It hurts really when you have put energy and
      someone just give away it claiming their own..

      Yep. I've had that very thing done to one of mine. It was linked to DP from one of those warez-theft sites.

      Thankfully, it was a Warrior who alerted me to it.

    talk about duplicate content penalties... If it's not PLR (which it wasn't) it certainly should be nipped in the bud. Usually when someone like that is confronted, they'll head for the bushes.

      I notice that she corrected the grammar.

      Still, she could at the very least have shuffled the order of the bullet points, or swiped some more from the other posters in the thread...

        Hey Ernie,

        This kind of behaviour sucks.....

        Any form of plagiarism is not acceptable in my book.....

        About six years ago, my wife had a situation with an author
        that she represented. The books were already delivered to the
        bookshops with special displays etc. Someone bought a copy and
        then discovered that the book was, word for word, identical to
        a course that he had done.

        When my wife confronted the author about the obvious copyright
        infringement, he "innocently" said that as far as he was concerned,
        copyright meant that he had the "right to copy"......can you
        believe it.

        Needless to say, all stock had to be recalled and destroyed....

        The nerve of some mother's children!!!!!

        Regards

        Greg

      If you do this kind of thing the only one that you are really showing up is yourself.

      I personally would not feel good if I got praise off of people for a post that I copied.

      In a way I think it is good for the rest of use, because if they feel the need to do this with a forum post then it is highly unlikely they will have the dedication to release a good product!

      Just my 2 pence!

      Chris

      Yeah who knows...

      I find it hard to believe that a 40-50 year old women would do this but I guess knowing the way the world is these days...it's possible lol.

      Whats really ironic is, one of the posts she copied and pasted talked about being trustworthy as one of the ways to make more money.....HA too bad he/she doesn't practice what she preaches.
