Those unwilling or unable to discuss this problem in a civilized manner can go hang out at totalmasala.com where, presumably, such behavior is better tolerated. I've edited or deleted several comments, and I sincerely hope I don't have to continue.
Please -- don't direct Google or anyone else to this thread to support your attempts to correct the problem. As much as I'd like to see the problem resolved, I'd also like to see people find pipTalk.com through threads in which we can all take pride. I don't think this one qualifies.
Now, in way of a more constructive addition to the thread, HERE is the link that everyone needs:
I think the procedure for finding this was detailed in the other links I posted in the other thread, but here's a quick rundown of what I just did.
1. Find the IP address of the web site. You can do that by pinging the domain name or by doing a tracert, both from your Windows command prompt.
2. Go to http://ws.arin.net/whois and enter the IP address to find out who it was assigned to (Colo4Dallas, in this case).
3. Type Colo4Dallas into Google and see if you can find their web site.
4. Look for the Terms of Service and an accompanying abuse email address.
These are the people who provide the hosting for the offending web site. The host provides the pipes (and usually the computer, but probably not in this case) by way of which the plagiarist is publishing your material. In most cases, the host is the second contact you should make (the first should the owner of the offending web site, but I doubt that will have much effect in this case).
Now, if you want to complain to anyone (the hosting service here, or Google, or even the owner of the domain), you really need to do it correctly. I get complaints of plagiarism every week at the main site (a few on poems that I wrote!) and ignore most because they are totally bogus (I got a phone call, no less, just last week from a very irate mother because I stole her 14-year-old daughter's poem and published it on the main site . . . uh, nine years ago?). The links I posted in the other thread have some really EXCELLENT advice from Kit, including form letters and DMCA forms. People are only going to listen to you if you are professional and have all your ducks in a line.
