I guess it had to happen some time… Who wouldn’t want to write like me? I write with the wit of Beavis And Butthead, the subtlety of Ray Winstone and the wisdom of Yoda (if he was mid-menopause). So yeah, some lying f*ck has posted an “article” I wrote and claimed it as their own… They have good taste, according to my stats it is one of the most popular things I’ve written. Funnily enough though, they didn’t nick it from Blogmella (even though I recycled it here) – they stole it years ago, from my old LJ account. There are plenty of ads on their website – It’s nice to know I’ve been making them money, since 2006.
So anyway, today I Googled the title of my post (to see if it was well placed) and there they were, just ABOVE me on Google, with MY writing. And they hadn’t put a link, or a credit – in fact they’d put “Written by…” underneath, followed by their own name! Thieving bastards!
I’ve contacted them and I’ll see what they have to say. If they don’t act quickly, I’ll contact Google Ads (who are advertising on their site). I have TONS of proof that the work is mine. OK, I still have my health and the World will not stop turning – but seriously, they need to f*ck right off.
Just before I go… We keep seeing adverts for these on TV – BUMPITS. Excuse me? Dave nearly wets himself every time the ad pops up. Presumably this hair product was designed and named in America, where BUM doesn’t mean ARSE. “Bumpits”? They might as well be called “Arseholes”. Hahaha!
