Please look carefully at the web address in the URL field of your browser. It should read ‘http://allanthinks.typepad.com‘.
In case you see a web address containing the word ‘bitacle’ or
‘bitacle.org’, you’re not looking at the original page on which this
text was posted. If this is the case, the text you are reading right
now might be incorrect or out of date. After I place a post on my
weblog, I always try to keep published information up to date, or
incorporate additional information, which I receive from readers. You
will never find this information on bitacle.org.
Bitacle.org copies the content of weblogs without permission of
the author, the holder of copyrights or the licensee. By visiting
bitacle.org, you create income for the people who run bitacle.org, at
the expense of me and other owners of a weblog, without permission and
license. So please, next time you want to view my posts, do so by using
the web address of my weblog, which is ‘http://allanthinks.typepad.com‘. Please make a bookmark of my weblog’s address, if you would like to visit it again.
This post is stickied and will remain at the top of the page for a while. This was suggested by the folks at Stop Bitacle.org. Hopefully if enough bloggers do this it might put pressure on bitacle to stop stealing content.
That is the subject line of an item of email I discovered in my Gmail spam folder yesterday. I don't think I have ever received an email with such a direct and demanding subject line. I just had to click on it to see what it was all about.
