Things like this don’t happen often. Yesterday someone approached me on IM and asked me if I had any work for them, out of nowhere. I have never talked to this person before. It had to be one of the worst day for this guy because when he showed me his blog, the very first article was stolen from this very blog word to word. I had a chat with the guy and I am posting the conversation below. I told the “content thief” that I won’t release his name but would let everyone know about the blog and the main domain of the site, so I will keep my word and will keep his identity a secret. However, I will release his blog URL and the main URL.
Here is the conversation,
As you can see from the conversation above he was really nice and kept the blog up while I took a few images of the stolen posts. I did end up chatting more than what is shown above but didn’t really think it was necessary to include it here. I had to keep chatting to make sure he didn’t take the blog down which he eventually did.

I think at this point he realized that I was actually taking images of the posts he had stolen. When I tried getting to the next page to find where else he had stolen articles from, this is what I got,
main site : sentersoftech.com
Well, there you have it. Hopefully he got a lesson. One thing is for sure, web sure has made this world a small place. Not sure how this guy got me on his IM, ended up asking me for some work and shared his blog URL with me. What happened after that is what you just saw.
Apologies to the guy (content thief) for letting this out but you shouldn’t steal content from others and call it your own. Hopefully you won’t do it again.
