in thread Can your site handle this?

All items on the poetry section are plagiarised, actually.

Same in the JAPH section.

Uhm...

    ... including my obfu: Nervous sub. (Unattributed plagiarized copy posted here by Logicus.)

    What did I do to deserve having something that took me a couple of hours to write stolen and posted on someone else's site without so much as an attribution? Even something such as, "This was invented by davido over on PerlMonks." would have been courteous.

    Instead, it's made to look as though someone else wrote it and posted it there.

    It reminds me of Lee Marvin's line from the movie "Emperor of the North". "Kid, ya got no class!"

      A creator does not surrender the rights to their work by posting it online. A piece is protected by copyright the moment it is created.

      Also, while the maintainer of a website may decide they don't care about the ownership rights of individuals, the domain registry and web host may have concerns.

    Yup, and that's just the start! I'm going to rip content off from near and far! All your internetz are belong to me!
      You people brought this down on yourselves, I have no pity for you and not a shred of compunction about using anything you produce for my own benefit and profit. Perhaps if the more trollish members of this forum hadn't gone to town trying to make me out to be an out of control psycho, maybe if some of the others had stood up for me against them, possibly if just one person had really taken a look at what I was bringing, then I wouldn't feel such MALICE towards this place and the majority of it's inhabitants. Too bad... and too late.
        It's too bad that you're too stupid to realize that ripping off content from here only proves that you're not intelligent enough to come up with your own material. Way to admit that people here are mentally superior to you.

        By the way, it's hilarious that you claim to hate PerlMonks, yet you start your own site that's a carbon copy of it rather than something original. Are you in denial, or just too dumb to think of your own ideas?
