Okay. So here’s the thing. I went on to another blogger’s site who occasionally “likes” and reads mine, checking out her site as I do, when I run across a post from a couple days prior which is almost word for word one of my poems. There is no mention of me or my poem. Just a complete and utter rip-off. I’m pissed. I don’t like liars and I don’t like thieves. And I’m wondering, dear readers-who-I-hope-would-never-steal-from-another-artist-without-some-some-sort-of-acknowledgement-for-inspiration: what would you do? How would you respond if you read someone’s “poem” only to see your words there, slightly tweaked (as in a different tense) but there nonetheless? I’m honestly asking. Because I can think of a lot of responses and that got me to thinking, what would YOU do??
And I’m sorry if this sounds petty, but honestly I’m really quite pissed.
