WTF??? My old MDC thread is on a medical website!?

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
I was bored, and just googled my mdc user name to see if there were any other forums I had posted on, and an old thread of mine popped up in a medical website! This forum, nor any of the posters were mentioned, (except my user name because someone wrote it in a reply). Is this normal??? Google your user names and see if someone put your thread in a website too!

Here is my old MDC thread: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...030&highlight=

Here is the website: www.healthknowledge.org/parenting/92488/

I don't know if this is creepy and weird, or really cool!

Fortunately I chose a username that is similar to Alcoholics Anonymous, so that's what comes up (even though that isn't why I chose it!!)

weird! I wonder if they steal the posts to boost their key words for searches?

my name comes up with Drummer's Wife T-shirts. Those would have came in handy when I went to DH's shows.

Drummer's Wife you are on that site too.

I would think this should be reported to a mod so that MDC can contact the site about this.

Yeah...

I feel really uncomfortable with some of the posts on that site... you can't do that can you? Is that against some terms of use or is it basically whatever is publicly available? post at your own discretion sort of thing...


This kind of reminds me of when I stumbled across a MDC snark board and happened upon my miscarriage story being ripped to shreds. My internet innocence was totally lost at that point... at least this isn't that obnoxious.

Hello!

It looks like a site stealing our content. It is NOT legal, it is a violation of our copyright and it is a violation of the google adsense TOS. I will need to put together a report


It is pretty common for sites to theft content to get adsense.

Hopefully they can stop it from happening! Unreal. You would think that the website in question would at least mention that those convos came from MDC.

They are probably just using a program to copy the content and place it on their site.

Um, at least it's better than what you get when you google MusicianDad...

Just googled my user name. Apparently I've gone gay.

Abimommy, here is another site that is stealing content: http://omgili.com/user%3A%22amma@5fmama%22#

And, boy, there are a lot of variations of my username out there!

They even have the old role-call from my ddc. They must be desperate to fill space and make themselves look big.

That's the great thing about my username!
