I’m sick of trackbacks to my blog from other sites that steal my content. Sure they “cite” me with a link, but it doesn’t count when you say “submitted by kaker” and then link to me, and it doesn’t count even if you link to me and say “read more”. If you’re just quoting me or commenting on a post, you are not stealing my content.
So, I thought I’d start keeping track of these content thieves, and I wanted to let you too!
I’d love it if someone took this one step further on this and made a WordPress plugin. The plugin would:
1) Add to this list when you find a site that does this.
2) Block any comments/trackbacks from this site
3) Reports to some blacklist somewhere?
I’m not worried about getting out-competed by these slimeballs, but I don’t want someone monetizing on my hard work and tainting my name with their unethical practices.
