Flattered or Pissed Off?!

hmmmmmmmm

Might have to find this fellow.

The person was stupid. Left a direct link to my css file so I disabled it. It used to look exactly like my front page, now I took away the css so it looks a little more crappy.

Found him by hits in my weblog, little bastard.

Anyway, I couldn't track anything down on it as far as where it is linked from, might be new. Will look periodically.

Why would you be flattered about some no talent hack using your site, our ideas, and kate's copywritten art for his own gain?

Someone needs a good hard kick in the shin. :twisted:  :twisted:

I'm not a lawyer! Seriously I swear! Don't throw me in the shark tank!  :wink:

It does mean that they were enough impressed with the site to rip it off... Yay Strolen! Strolen who doesn't take enough credit for the images :p He was quite involved in the developing of them.

Anyway, Yahoo won't tell me who the person is unless I get a lizar- (ehem) lawyer to call them and speak funny Legalese at them or obtain a court order. This will be very easily (and hopefully quickly) resolved. Unless the person decides to flame me for having them shut down their identity may forever remain a mystery *woooooo* Yahoo will probably tell them who lodged the complaint against them if they ask, though the size of the yarbles required to flame me for this rather makes contact unlikely.

He did not use any ideas luckily. Its just an empty and hollow page. Maybe some similarity to the author himself? I am all for inspiration, maybe even cutting and pasting to complement own work but  this is too much.

Searching my curses to find something suitable :twisted:  But the person is probably already cursed with a heavy lack of imagination.
Do not correct me, I know I am wrong.

I am quite confused. What does a UK paintball team have to do with us? I didn't see anything when I got there that connects them to us at all. What was there that made them jackasses?

Didn't explain. Took me two looks as well.

Another one I found from my weblogs. Overlooked it the first time, second time I did a view source. He basically stole the design of the website as well. He left links to my 'blank.gif' image in the code and I tracked him from that. he changed a lot of stuff, left the CSS stuff (probably didn't understand it) so when you mouseover one section it will turn brown. Familiar?

Well the second Jackass (http://www.geocities.com/gunnerj_do//index.html) seems to have stopped the exact copy of your site.  Now he/she is just using the public forum php build minus the php.

But the first Jackass (http://www.geocities.com/injanate/) hasn't changed a thing.  Is there an actual legal copyright infringement here?  Get em…

I curse them and all their lines to always get zapped by static electricity when they touch something, and to always get a lottery ticket with all but one of the correct numbers for the jackpot.

Why I oughta'....

If that were me, I would track them down and eat their brains. Not literally, though. I'd probably have a heated argument with them and then beat the crap out of them. :evil:  :evil:

If they had taken the time to ask you if they could use your css, I would have been flattered. As it stands, if I saw them... Well, let's just say the results would NOT be pretty.
Anything is possible. Anything at all. However, probability is another matter....

Now that is LOW!!! Passing content off as their own I am assuming. I even have a problem with people linking to sites inside frames let alone sniping the content.

Generally I don't care about taking a format idea and creating your own, but when you take graphics, directly link the css (moron) and just change a title, that is a little too much. But that isn't even as bad as passing off content, that is nuts!

Yeah, but what he doesn't understand is one, the visitors will still be going to RoE and not really to a website owned by him :P  So that means I continue getting the advertising and impressions.  All he would basically be doing is creating a second portal to RoE and bring in more members :)

Also, the frames won't work anyway because of this little bit if javascript I wrote.

Code: [Select]
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--

if (window != top) top.location.href = location.href;

// -->
</SCRIPT>


It will cause RoE to break out of any frames it is loaded into :D  Only those people who have javascript turned off will be stuck and I plan on adding a link to the main menu of RoE that will allow them to break out themselves if that is the case ;)

Because I use cold fusion includes at RoE, I only had to add that bit of script to one file and upload it...now it appears on EVERY page. :D

LOL!  Freeservers.com killed his site anyway for breaking my copyright ;)

Yet another handy javascript to add to my, well, two.  Much to the chagrin of a few on the board I usually have nothing to do with anything with 'java' included in the name, including the drink. But I have slowly been shown the light and usefulness of a couple scripts.

Dr Phluid will remind me which one he suggested I put in, I have a feeling that it is similiar to the one you mention.

The joy of Cold Fusion and PHP. The ease of manipulation of one file to make the entire site eat the fruits. I learned the beauty of modulation early in the building (thank goodness) and can also benefit from a few minutes of inputting some simple code to update the menu or add a quick script.

Yep, without includes and other nifty programming tricks, running a site as large as RoE would be d**ned near impossible.  I  remember when I had only one menu on the site :P  God that was awful.

Strolen,

Oh how easily someone other than me sways you.  That script is exactly the one I recommended to you before, but NOOO :(

Anyway, Java is NOT the same as Javascript anymore than Sun is the same as Microsoft.  So it should please you that even if you do add the script you will not have any Java in your pages.  

Frankly I am surprised that a non-Microsofty like yourself would not fully support Sun’s Java.

Hey, I just looked and you are already running javascript on this very page!  You have already crossed over to the dark side.  Every step get easier from now on.
If I am wrong, it is probably because you misunderstand me

I thought it was familiar and mentioned it, it is in my todo list  :wink:

Javascript on this page comes with the forum and thankfully I think it is just used for a popup for a new private message. I haven't looked too hard at it but it is minimalistic which is cool for me.

I will add that javascript that you gave me way back when, and I think there was another one too, I wrote them down. Might even get a fav icon going as well  8)

You do get the Clerical experience points for swaying somebody to your javascript religion and that is why I easily agreed here, the work was already done.  :P
