Someone stole one my articles...And I'm very flattered!!
I was curious to see how highly it was ranked on Google, so last night, I googled "bottle feeding evil". Look what I found:
See the very last item on the list? Don't click on this link...I think it's a weird virus link, but what caught my eye is the way it starts out. That is word for word exactly the same as I published on Technorati and also on my blog. I clicked on it and it's a very bizarre website with no contact information. It just has a bunch of articles and pictures about breastfeeding. They changed the article a little bit, but not that much. It's very clear that they just cut and pasted my article and then posted it on their own website. I tried to send them an email to protest but they have no contact information listed. After I got off the site, I did a virus scan and sure enough, there were alerts but my computer took care of them.
I have to say that I feel very strongly about this....I'm so flattered!! :-) I should probably be mad that they hijacked my stuff, but honestly I think it's awesome they noticed and liked it enough to steal it...I'd say I'm moving up in the world. I'm really curious to see if this has every happened to anyone else??
