Bloggers Unite - Ban Bitacle the Imposter
"Oh, God. That's horrible. Heads would roll if that were me. I'm glad I'm not the one."
That's what I said to myself moments ago after reading Plain Jane Mom's scathing post about Bitacle stealing her entire blog, then making dirty money off of her obviously ripped off words by unscrupulously injecting it with their own Google ads. Bitacle swiped ALL of her content, including photos of her kids and anything and everything she's ever written on her blog, all without asking for her explicit permission.
My next thought: My blog is such a newborn (six weeks old give or take a few days) that there's no way Bitacle would have leeched any of my content, which is partially (that is partially until I know better - bummer) licensed to ME and ONLY ME.
Turns out Bitacle did it to ME too!
Sure enough, those plagiarising punks have ALL of my content. EVERYTHING. See what I mean while I seethe here.
These days it's hard to keep track of all of the mom blogs Bitacle has ruthlessly stolen. As Plain Jane Mom so patiently listed, Bitacle has pilfered Motherhood Uncensored, Suburban Turmoil, Friday Playdate, and who knows how many more blogs ... and growing by the second.
Can Bitshit (a nicer cut-down name than several choice f-word others I've heard bantied about) be stopped? If so, how? And what can I do to help nab their thieving asses and force them to keep their distance from my ink? Yeah, you heard that? MINE. MINE. MINE.
If my tired eyes weren't this bloodshot at what is now 3:14 a.m., I'd rip Bitacle a new one on this post and ignite a firestorm of nastygrams b-lining straight toward their deceiving inbox direction.
Instead I'm going to break the age-old Cardinal rule and go to bed angry ... steaming ... incensed ... outraged ... pissed ... you get it. Now please let's do something about it, fellow ripped off mom bloggers.
Tomorrow I'll start fresh and itching for a fight when I better know my enemy thanks to Plain Jane Mom's post all about anti-Bitacle hotlinking. Also, I plan to pay a much needed visit to stopbitacle.org to hook 8 Cm Deluded up with a big, glaring, red Stop Bitacle button.
How dare Bitacle! Shame and depleted Karma all around.
