I suppose my initial anger, shock, reaction shouldn't have been shared with you all in the first place. I have a fairly short fuse at times, which I'm trying to remedy, something I inherited from my late father I suppose.
Having had an hour or so away from the internet to think this thing through. I have decided that whilst it might be worth pursuing this person or persons unknown by what ever legal means are open to us, is there any point? It can't have been any accident that over 16 posts from Philofaxy where taken partly or fully and used on their own website. It was done in such a bad way as well.
Comments on the posts on their site were taken from comments on other posts on our site. Photos where not used from our posts but where pinched (linked to) from Flickr or else where. So for instance my post about using my slimline as a wallet had got the pictures of the contents of a ladies handbag... now you know I use a man-bag.. but I draw the line at using make up!!!! Yes you have to see the funny side of their clumsy way of doing this I suppose.
So please let this be the last on this topic. Let's get back to enjoying and discussing our real love... you are such a great bunch of people and it would truly hurt my feelings if any of you thought that you couldn't comment or enjoy the site because of some fear or bias of any type.
Thank you for your offers of help and continued support.
There is a Happy Ending... well sort of... I have received the following email:
I have removed all posts you list from the site. Sorry for inconvenience.
Well he hasn't quite removed all of the articles, I've sent him the link to a couple of others that he seems to have missed. But hopefully they too will be gone soon.
