That nasty issue again

Hello folks, I'm not here with any craft, just a rather sad follow up to my post last month here about the activities of another blogger copying work.

This blogger has apparently only just decided to put her side forward and last evening added a post to her blog accusing me of cowardice and plagiarism and whilst she has not named me in her post, has clearly circulated my name to friends and followers who appear to be accepting her explanation resulting in some of those people taking great delight in leaving offensive comments on my blog.

All offensive comments have and will be deleted as they appear, but will be saved and reported to blogger along with those who have already or may in the future post disparaging comments about me on their own blogs as they have threatened to do.

I did not name the person in my blog posts and did not pass her name to others so as not to cause her further distress whilst allowing her the opportunity to make her apologies, but it seems she was not prepared to do so.

It is no surprise that she claims complete innocence and to have never received my mail last month (of which she was sent another copy), yet a clean up of her blog happened shortly after it was originally sent. Her blog post refers to there being no evidence of her wrong doing, but she of course is fully aware of the material she deleted. I have since found out that it is possible to copy a persons web pages, but by then it was too late as she had removed the offending posts and evidence. But I understand there may be a way of retrieving deleted archived material and will be investigating that route.

Fortunately there are reliable and genuine friends who saw and witnessed the since deleted posts from this persons blog and I have no reservations or guilt at having raised the issue in the first place and stand by all I said last month.

  1. What a terrible person, you should name and shame this person. It's a sad would when people who do wrong try to hurt others when they are caught. Take care. Hugs Anesha

  2. Trust that the person in this matter will see the folly of her ways and feeling for you B. You dont need such stress - if only more folk were as honest and generous as you - yes have been aware of the copying of posts but not sure how it is done really ... thanks for being true so that work is not stolen by anyone Ever blessing dear B.

  3. I'm sooo sorry to hear this Brenda and I think I agree that you should name and shame her as you've had nasty comments from others about it.
    I have no idea how people can copy and then claim that they haven't done it as it's so nasty and hurtful to do that.
    Sending big hugs your way.

  4. You should consider registering your blog at myfreecopyright.com. Every time you post, you get a copyright confirmation sent to your email. It is free and you can post it on your blog to justify any legal action that could be taken should this continue to happen.

  6. That's awful Brenda. I don't understand such persons. They cause so much dishonesty and stress. That they also accuse you is so low. Brenda how can we help you? In any case faithfully to keep coming by your site so you can maintain hopefully still have fun in your creativity. I do not know who it is but otherwise no longer visit her blog. Cheer up fortunately there are still many honest people.
    sweet greetings and hugs

  7. If she wants to play nasty, then I don't think you owe her any consideration. Name and shame would be my action I think.

  11. Brenda I am so sorry this is happening to you. You do have to wonder about some people. Please don't let it stress or worry you and remember there are many, many, many of us who respect and love your work and you as a person. Pami x

  12. I'm sorry to hear you are still having this issue. I think from reading some of the nasty comments her "friends" are leaving, we can see who the bigger person is. She (and her friends) should be ashamed of herself. Taking credit for someone else's work and then claiming innocence after removing the evidence. At least you can take comfort in knowing that eventually she will be called on this (again), if she's doing it to you, she's doing it to others as well.

  14. Hi Brenda. So sorry to hear this problem is continuing. How very brave of her friends to leave anonymous comments on your blog. If I was you I wouldn't allow anonymous comments and see if these people are so ready to reveal themselves.

    Whatever anyone says it wont change my opinion of you . You are a talented lady and have taught me lots . You have lots of friends .. just remember that

  16. Hi Oh my what a lot of grief !! I am so lucky in that the blogs I follow or follow me I have never came across such horrible goings on !! They are just not worth your time !! the people who leave offensive comments shall be seen and I am sure will be noticed !! Really sorry this just is so awful for you x

  17. Oh my goodness Brenda, this is terrible. I feel very sorry this has happened to you Brenda. You have been nothing but a very lovely lady to me and fellow crafters. People come on to the internet and set up blogs to be part of a wonderful craft community where ladies and gents share their art and share tips and techniques. I greatly saddens me that instances like this flare up every so often. I hope this matter sorts its self out quickly Brenda. Lee x

  21. Wow Brenda I can't believe how vicious these anonymous cowards are. Wonder why only one friend can leave her name. Hope you are upsetting yourself too much over all the nastiness directed at you.

    Take care,
