Blog Troubles for our Furends

Furst off let me say this... THOU SHALT NOT STEAL !!!
Second I want to say that putting up one of those STOP Signs that say your blog is copyright protected... WILL NOT protect your words.. Those will not Prevent these nasty BUSINESS Bloggers from taking thingys from your blog... It would remind your furends that it is Always the POLITE thingy to ASK if you can borrow something.

I do NOT believe that ANY resident of Blogville has ever STOLEN anything from another Resident. It is true that we sometimes use each others pictures... butt never EVER would one of us deliberately STEAL from another. When that happens it is called PLAGIARISM and that is not something WE do. When we use one of our furend's pictures or talk about something that they DID or Said... WE are doing it beclaws we LOVE them and Care about them and Consider them Dear Furends. We do NOT steal. WE are not the ones that Stole from our furends.

What happened to Baxter and to SUGAR the other day was not done by one of US. It was done by some people who are trying to MAKE MONEY with blogs. It was terrible and WE in Blogville are NOT terrible.
THOSE are the people who need to be told.. in no uncertain terms... THOU SHALT NOT STEAL.
When one of our furends crosses the bridge or is sick or hurt... or even if we just want to have some fun with them... we DO use one of their pictures... and that is fine. Of course we should ask... butt sometimes we just KNOW that it is OKAY.. beclaws we are FURENDS. We NEVER try to say that we OWN the picture... We never try to say that their words are Our words.. We are paying tribute ... or poking fun... and that is all we are doing.. There is a very distinct difference between BORROWING and STEALING... We don't steal from our furends.. We may tease them and have some FUN at their expense... BUTT NEVER EVER WOULD WE DO ANYTHING TO HURT ONE OF OUR FURENDS OR TO TRY AND PROFIT FROM THEM IN ANY WAY. We are just not like that.
PLEASE... everybuddy know that the type of link that I just put in above for Sugar's blog... is NOT a BackLink. BackLinks are done Behind the scenes. The Links that we use are direct links to someone's Blog to help you find them... It is NOT..... NOT.... stealing their words or their pictures. It is just a Bridge to get you there to see what is on their blog.
BACKLinks are BAD..... Links to other blogs are different and they are FINE.
BACK LINKS are done for Business purposes... Direct Blog Links like WE use are there for our use and to make things EASY for Us to move from blog to blog.
I hope that this helps you and eases your mind.
NOW... If you would like to know more about the situation... Click on the Link to Sugar's Blog beclaws SHE has really done her homework on this and she has the FULL story.
Sugar is a real sweetie and we all feel so badly about all of this. The same for Baxter. These Crazy THIEVES just chose the WRONG ones to mess with!!! Sugar and Baxter have FURENDS and Furends stick together!!!! I'm just sayin'.
PeeS.... I think that &*!!%$# (A.K.A. Da Preacher) is hidin out. In case you were wondering. LOW Profile.. and what not.

It's disgusting isn't it? I don't know why they would steal like that.

Thanks Frankie. Anyone ever try copyscape that Sugar mentions in her post today. There's a monthly fee involved, but apparently it catches these things.

Your pal, Pip

Great post, Frankie. We have been gilty of borrowing some of our furiends pics for a special post in their name, but from now on we think we are going to try to remember to ask permission first. We understand it is not the same thing as backlinking - no idea how to even do that. We feel badly for Sugar and any others who have been abused by those who have maliciously put in backlinks. Thanks for an informative post.

AMEN! No one should be stealing from others blogs and us furiends would do no such things! Shame on dem!!!

Sam said...

It's a shame, because it's very hard to protect what you put online. I frequently Google my name, Marge's name, and the blog's name to try to stop stuff from getting out there. I occasionally run upon sites that have links TO the blog and also to many others - is that a BackLink? I don't like that they do it because sites like that are generally associated with viruses and spam, but I don't know how to stop it.

I agree with you completely on this one Frankie! You said it perfectly!

Wow, interesting! I'm pretty sure no one has plagarized my blog, I just talk about looking for work and getting excited for school.

I was just looking at my stats on blogger yesterday and today and I love that it can tell you how people link to your blog as well as what googled words led them to your blog.

Grrreat post, Frankie! Can't believe that someone would actually do that to one of our blogs!!
