MDC shows up in regular Google searches. It might not be as high as something else on a given day, but if you search an unusual user name or something you posted about, it will come up.

Not saying content theft doesn't suck big time, but you're not less safe regarding cannabis just because it's here--you really, really are not!

It's not that the stay-at-home-parent gets to stay home with the kids. The kids get to stay home with a parent. Lucky Mom to DD1 (4 y) and DD2 (18 mo), Wife to Mercenary Dad

I googled my username and the first thing that popped up was a photo blog by another punk mommy. Sweet. Then Poison Girls lyrics which is what I expected.

I thought the same thing. I'm not a frequent poster due to being so busy, but saw this thread just now. I googled my username plus the health knowledge site and it pulled up one thread. It was posted Dec 07, but I know I replied before that on MDC it only mentions my DD and we would have had DS1's tol by then (so I would have mentioned him as well).

I totally remember this happening before too. Grrrrr...

I don't get why. Some of those threads (and they are whole threads) are MDC specific (like roll calls or why you chose your user name).

Any misspellings or grammatical errors in the above statement are intentional;
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.

I came across this a few months ago when searching my username and a few key words that matched subjects I'd posted about before. At least five different sites came up with direct C&Ps from MDC. It seems pretty common. They make it look like someone posted the thread to their site, adding content and making it look like their site is really active. But it's totally plagiarized.

I don't show up anywhere. On Yahoo, it only pulls up about three individual places where I have actually posted (2 profiles & one post) & Google separates my name into two words, so absolutely nothing there.

Your account is linked by a number, so even if you change your name, the number stays the same. And, depending on when that site cached the MDC content, it could have been when you had your old username.

If you have usernames from other online forums those will probably be there too.

A username I had from a board I visited frequently about 9 years ago is on boardtracker. It was a big deal back then on that forum as well...that's why I try my hardest to keep my username and details as anonymous as possible.
