I have recently been informed that there is a Brompton website that merely copies my content, that of my partner iCrazyBee and a few other Brompton specific bloggers.
The annoying thing is that we have been told if you stray on to this site and click a link to something I...we have written it will not count as a page hit for us but for the person living off our hard work.
This blog is and has always been an online diary of my cycling adventures on my Brompton bikes. It has been a journey some of you have shared for years and some just a matter of weeks. You out there matter to me. Your kind words and comments have kept me writing and I have done my best to inform, amuse and entertain.
I have a demanding full time job, a wife and two children and do my best to find the time to blog as quickly as I dare. I have been advert free and do not make a penny from this blog. I know that my friend iCrazyBee would probably say the same. I don't think it is right that someone like a parasite is feeding off my...our hard work.
So this is a plea directly from me and my fellow Brompton related bloggers to read our efforts (however awful) via our blogs and not via anywhere else.
As you know my blog can be reached at:
Please don't read it anywhere else and especially not at www.bromptonclub.co.uk
You have my support. I am in academia, and I share your irritation at the prospect of stolen intellectual property.ReplyDelete
Many thanks John. Hope to see you again on Sunday.Delete
Hang in there! We support you! Brompton Diaries got stolen, too, as well as several others on the BromptonTalk list. The scumbag has been banned, and all relevant links to pirated works removed, but visitors still need to link directly to you.ReplyDelete
You've all got our support,
Really appreciate this. Many thanks for the support.Delete
What a fluffin' liberty, I think you're being very reserved, personally if you can afford the time to read the original why bother with a copy?ReplyDelete
You have my support OB man, keep the stories coming, please.
OH AND IF YOU ARE READING THIS YOU PLAGARISING ROACH - P OFF!
