Good Grief--whoever this is acted like ants at a Pip picnic!

Bad news folks--they got me several times, Gentle Spirit, ThisDiamond, Mysteria, too many to count!  

Thanks for the heads-up Steve!

This is where you supposedly can send founder a private message , but of course you have to become a member to do that

One more word of caution:

After digging around a bit, I wanted to caution some of you that this site contains sexually explicit material.

And sigh--I'm afraid some of you folks who posted personal pics? Those were lifted along with your poetry.

Their member list boasts close to 3500 members, and yet most of them have apparently never posted. Heh?

This is the link to the first administrator I could find---
http://www.totalmasala.com/members/gilitring.html

Private messenger was listed as a yahoo IM:

Roshni0076@yahoo.com

Damn! Where do we go from here? Is there some way Pips can take legal action against this person?
I've never seen this site until now,
and NEVER authorized them to post my poetry
Thanks ser, for the link...yes indeed, those were both my originals and posted here at Pips.
THANK YOU for the heads-up!

Hope, let us not jump to that conclusion ... the thief is just stealing works by a whole bunch of PiP's poets ... doesn't mean that the 'duets' are being posted by anyone from here ... just that it's been COPIED verbatim from what was posted here~

Slowly, calmly ... we will make all attempts to get the administration of the site to realize what has been done ... and evenutally it will get taken care of, I'm just sure of it~

I also sent the following to the WebMaster of the site -
---------------------------------------
Please go to the forum at Poetry In Passions and read the
post citing Plagiarism and Copyright Infringement by one of the people listed as a Moderator at your site, by the name of ~~~Founder~~~
http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum3/HTML/004346.html

This is serious and folks are awfully upset and wish to have you remove their poetry from this site and obviously take whatever action is necessary against your 'Moderator', ~~~Founder~~~

Thank you for your immediate attention to this~
~*Marge Tindal*~

Let us ALL stay on it~

I stopped counting at eight but I think we should have a little sympathy for Founder after all if heís palming my stuff off as poetry there has to be something seriously wrong with the guy.

I also felt a little flattered and more than slightly hungry (but that could just be that I havenít eaten yet).

I *bumped* a few of the pieces in the Poetry World ... and then added a NEW TOPIC too~
http://www.totalmasala.com/poetry-world/

There are approximately 117 pages in this section ... and I've checked them all out~
So many of our members have been plagiarized ... I registered as RealPoet and will bump some more pieces so they perhaps will be easier found by those searching~

*sigh* ... Balladeer ... yeah, they got you too~

Prairie Inkwells are there also~

Sorry for the levity, I had a Homer Simpson moment; you know the type, where all the cares in the world disappear to be replaced by the enduring urge for Crusty burgers.

I admit I was a little miffed when I first saw my stuff somewhere else under somebody elseís name, then I was honestly a little flattered that the somebody else had chosen my stuff. Then I realised that I was more bothered about being hungry than being plagiarised and that in the grand scheme of things itís a minor irritation rather than a major incident.

If anyone contacts our plagiarist friend tell him he can keep mine in exchange for burgers (amount negotiable).

Midnitesun,

Everyone has their price.  

Mmmmm Burgers

There were just so many stolen works I couldn't begin to try and notify everyone so I put the link here to try and let everyone know. Glad to see so many are taking action. This guy is no better than a common thief and it burns my a$$ to see people try to get away with this. Take care and Have fun. Steve

Grinchman...I eat gardenburgers. Heck, for a generous supply I'll write this sadsack an original to keep and use as (s)he chooses!
I too, was surprised someone wanted my words bad enough to steal them. LOL, heck, I doubt I can claim a single thought or phrase as totally original anyway. Surely someone else had the same thoughts before my feeble brain did!
Still...I DID take the time to yoke the thoughts together....

Hi Folks,
Thanks so much for letting us know about this.  It has a serious impact on all of us.

I have also written, and I wouldn't say I threatened them, since I intend to always keep my promises.

Class action wouldn't be a bad term.

But then, this takes little class. ~Grin

Hugs to all.

Hey Ron?  Can you help us at all?
