The important thing is that you did not just lie dowm, you fought back…….. and you will survive and thrive. You are a winner, a pioneer and a trail blazer. We hug you all the time because we love you and have great faith in your ability to overcome.
Nothing can stop you and good, generally speaking, always conquers evil.
May the good Lord continue to bless, inspire and protect you and give you the fortitude and wisdom to press on, regardless.
Love always,
D&M

It is pitiful that people hack for a living – just for the joy of disabling a site for a few hours or a few days. So glad to hear you have a supportive army of a tech team to help you through it all.

I so feel you pain with the site stealing your content and photos. It happens to me a lot, but most of it is on those ad sites and I do not bother with it. Most of them seem to leave the world wide web as fast as they appeared.

What really bothers me though, is that when a blogger “friend” actually steals my images, or takes my words and adds a few of her own to make her post “original” which it is so not. It is funny to even see when typos are copied and pasted. Not so funny though, is like I said – this is supposedly a blogger friend, who is making a name for herself in other parts of the business, but it all started with a blog. I only know my own content, but I bet she takes from others as well, and it really breaks my heart. Especially now since I am the one in the tough spot of figuring out how to deal with it.

I guess what I am trying to say, is that while all internet theft is wrong in the worst way, when it is done by someone we know, it is worse. Hard as I am sure it is, I would much rather be dealing with a site in China, than with someone I know.

This is the reason why I have my logo displayed on all of my videos. Additionally, Afrobella made a blog post about plagiarism recently as well which started to make me think that this is beginning to be a problem. So, I just […]

All of your devoted fans are in your corner and you will survive! And get even stronger! Stay bright, upbeat and focussed and all will get better. Hugs to you and your team.

Another premiere website in the natural hair world had something similarly disturbing. Some how her traffic was being steered to another website with a similar spelling of the domain name. Similarly it was an asian site. Not to bash Asians but I understand there is a growing movement in some asian countries to learn more about creativity and I hope it works because “copying” and distorting is not the way to produce anything of value.

Thank you for sharing your feelings. It may be that groups of bloggers will have to come together and start filing lawsuits.
