*** Edited to say, the offending site is now down - Power to the Quilters***
Oh the fun and games of the bloggy world!
If you are reading this blogpost via quiltpatternspro.com, then please come over to my actual blog flyingblindonarocketcycle.blogspot.co.uk, because quiltpatternspro.com have no right to have re-posted this or any of my posts on their site.
Today it appears that the above site got rumbled for having been stealing blogposts from many, many quilty bloggers; big names, little names they are all there.
The problem? There are no links back to the original bloggers, but lots and lots of money-making links for unsuspecting folks to click through and make them a bunch of dollars.
Now when I was newly blogging I signed up to Quilerblogs.com, and it remains one on my main referral sites for which I am obviously grateful for and fully endorse. Quiltpatternspro.com on the other-hand seem to have hijacked their feed, do not have my permission, and are taking my and other's posts without asking, which as far as I am concerned is theft, pure and simple.
So please check out the site, run a search for yourself and your blog, (oh yes they have a handy search-doh!), and if you appear, then please leave a comment at the bottom of the Patterns tab; you'll see a lovely collection building up already, and then contact their webhost, this post of Alison's, ironically re-posted onto the quiltpatternspro.com feed (double-doh!), is great and tells you how. You can obviously vent your ire even if you have not been mugged, or don't even have a blog; I am sure the site and more importantly webhost would love to hear from you!
Thanks to The Bitchy Stitcher Megan for alerting everyone, and Elita and Kerry for thinking of me.
Let's hope this site gets taken down soon, and no-one clicks those links!
