Every so often, my blog gets plagiarized. I do a whois, find the offending party, have a short email conversation, and get that person to remove my content, and forget the whole thing ever happened.
Not now. Right now, I’m having a very dissatisfying email conversation with domainsbyproxy.com, DBP. They are protecting creativedevelopment.biz, CD. You will notice that I have not made them urls, by design. As far as I can tell, both of them are evil.
I called DBP today, to talk to someone—anyone about the emails from them that I do not understand. When you find abuse, you are supposed to report the abuse, and they follow up by email. I have provided my original writing link. I have provided the plagiarized link. I have provided evidence of copyright. They are asking for a good faith statement (which should not be necessary since I have claimed copyright), which I believe I have provided. I asked to talk to a manager. No manager was available. I asked to speak to someone who signed the paycheck of the person I spoke with. No one was available. The nice person told me they were all about security.
This is not security. This is about protecting criminals. This is about making it impossible to see who is doing business on the net. I would go as far to say that if you do business with DBP, you are the kind of person I do not want to do business with. You keep company with people who steal.
I put you people on notice. You want “security,” fine. I’m outing you whenever I cross paths with you. I will find bigger fish to tell. You common thief. Hide all you want. We will find you, out you, and crush you. Eventually.Tags: feedback
