Flattered or Pissed Off?!
« Reply #25 on: April 05, 2005, 03:47:47 PM »
For the most part, I am a laid back kind of guy. As a writer and a gamer, there are few things that that get under my skin more than flagrant plaigerism. (sp) Seeing as a website is actually the visual representation of quite a bit of complex writing, this is doubly a sore spot.

Normally I would offer some sort of maliciously whimsical curse to elicit a quick laugh and a smile, but for some reason I cant think of anything witty...

So, lacking that I level against them this curse...

[malice]
Death shall seak you
In every place
Even in every loved one's face

Hearken to my words of woe
Angry hornets and writhing things
Come from the dark on silent wings
Killing over and over with their poisoned stings

[/malice]

Why not put the perp's e-mail address (if you ever find it) in open view, where the Spamlinns and their spambots will stuff his computer with foul spam for all eternity?

If I was a hacker (which I am NOT) I would want to DOS his site.He has no right to wear your site's *patch* without permission.

Wow- that's some serious-ass web-design lingo you're busting out there, Cheka. Been studying? :)

They must be giving out free manuals on how to be a hacker .

The sad fact is that you just stated the blunt truth Maggot. On the net there are sites offering step by step instructions on how to hack a site or in other ways cause harm.

Most often these sites cater to 11-14 year old boys and everyone write 1337. Painful and pathetic!

Speaking from someone who is firmly lodged in the graphics community, this kind of ripping is by far the worst sin anyone can perform. The saying goes that imitation is the kindest form of flattery but not in the digital world where it is possible to make a complete copy of something.

Given the huge number of free graphics utilities and tutorials, it is not difficult to put together a website of reasonable standard. Borrowing ideas from other sites is flattery in this case but ripping the entire site is a banishable offense. All it really takes is effort to put something together and that really bites for me. People put a lot of effort into creating original designs: only to be ripped off by some ingrate who just can't be bothered.

Unfortunately, digital retribution rarely works as it is so easy to disappear from the web and reappear as a new person. Fortunately, the law has caught up with the web and people understand it when real money is at stake.

I hope you get him. String him up.

Some kind of cyber watch dog should be set up to close down these irreponsible sites,AG.

Kate, the artist and designer of these webpages, has successfully shut down others that have done the same thing as this one. I am pretty sure she knew about this one so not sure why it is still up.

Will see what's up.

Sooooo....what ever happened Strolen? This topic has lain fallow for many a month, nay, over a year!

The perps were caught and were going to court when a lynch mob gathered with torches, pitchforks, and reuben sandwiches who then laid waste to all that were associated with the crime. The state was happy since they saved money on court costs.
