Bitacle warning

Dear reader,

Please look carefully at the web address in the URL field of your browser. It should read ‘
http://rooruu.blogspot.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If this is the case, the text you are reading right now might be incorrect or out of date.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 often without respecting copyrights and/or terms of use as in a license. So please, next time you want to view my posts, do so by using the web address of my weblog, which is ‘http://rooruu.blogspot.com/‘. Please make a bookmark of my weblog’s address, if you would like to visit it again.
Thank you!

Rock on! Spread the word. Seriously, I will not rest until Bitacle is shut down. I'm very sorry they did this to you, too. Absolutely no shame.

I have never heard of this. How would you know if they were stealing your content?

Also you have bitten me with the dollhouse bug now. I just spent two hours looking through online miniature stores and tomorrow we are going to our local shop. Have you ever seen a modern sewing machine or cash register? I want my quilt shop to be very up to date and so far all the machines are antiques.

And now I have purchased the shelving and a cash register for the quilt shop. You can see photos on my blog. I can't stop thinking about it now.

If you follow the links in the blog entry, they will take you to explanations of how to search bitacle to see if your blog has been used there too.

Hehehehehehe I seem to be getting a few people bit by the dollhouse bug! (Read the comments here)
