Stealing my Stuff

I looked down at the section of my WordPress admin page where it shows people who have connected, and saw one I didn’t recognize. I clicked on it, and found a page where there are many, many of my entries, AS IF written by this blogger. There are other entries, too, from other bloggers, but no credit given to original sources.

It is so disgusting to me. It’s stealing not to give credit.

  5. It happened to my husband and that is why he deleted his blog. It turned me off blogging too, that is why I don’t post much. Is there a way to protect our posts?

  6. This is called Trackback spamming. They do this to become more popular on search engines. Delete any comments, pingbacks or trackbacks that link to posts with copied material.

  7. Thank you all for your sympathy, and you, 3baid, for your practical suggestions. I will do exactly as you suggest and eliminate the pingbacks when I see them.
