Plagiarism.

So, a little bird told me that my writing here is being copied elsewhere. My my! How flattering! I am sooo touched, I tell you.

Here is the copied version: http://svraman24.wordpress.com/page/4/

And here is my original post: Karadayan Nombu

Of course, if the plagiarist (is that a word?) is smart enough, (s)he? would have removed the post by now.

Oh! Wait a minute...here's one more of my posts:

Here's another:

And another:

This one boils my blood a lil' bit because it is one of my short stories:

This is one of the reasons I have removed most of my short stories from my other blog...

Anyhoo, just thought it was (so not) amusing!

Wonder how you report a word press blog...thoughts?

RS, this is awful!
Being in a profession like mine (where your reputation depends on the truth in your words, I have to say this person's boldness is just plain disturbing.

Sorry this happened to you.

Sorry this happened to you! But on the other side, you are a celeb writer now (whose works people plagiarize!)

Contact the author and ask him/her to remove your posts or atleast link it back to your site.

Hey! It is really disheartening to see such things happen

Wow! The audacity!

Looks like something has happened in the interim - can't access the 'copy' blog - I get:

You have a lot of fans on this blog, someone got his blog banned.

you did very well in blogging about this... and the other person removed those posts...

Few years back there was a similar issue in the indian blogosphere and it raised whole lots of stink... the blogger in question responded saying "he did not realize it is a BIG NO in the blogosphere". He apologised and life went on...

One of the things you can do is make a note in the sidebar saying these things are not allowed or put a creative commons and move on.

Personally, I feel bad this happened to you. You are doing well keeps the names of your people to the "initials".

I enjoy your blog. Continue blogging and let this not stop you :))
