Still getting jacked.

After getting HP and the Darkness Before the Dawn removed from Fanfiction.net, someone had stolen it and stuck it up without my permission, and claiming that it was their own work, I get several emails and reviews, telling me that the "Author" and a I use that only in the thieving, plagiarizing sense, has once again reposted the exact same fic, again, still even with the same title....

Oh...he changed the dates to match canon...I MEANT for them to be that time line.  Jackass.  If you are going to steal my shit, at least be competent about it.  IT is funny though, the few reviews on that fic, are mostly people telling him he's a thief.

So far, I've put in 3-4 requests for FF net mods to pull it, but so far to no avail.  And since I wrote the 2 sequels, including one-shots and chapters that have never been posted anywhere, I can prove its mine...

Anyway, that's my gripe.

It's a legitimate gripe. Why does anyone who has been caught stealing someone else's work use the same work again...pfft.

The truely annoying thing is I know that there are at least 5 reports of that fic being stolen, plus, if the few reviews that are up for it, most of whom are saying it's stolen, at least 10, on this time alone. Its not even a new user account.

Shouldn't the user account have been suspended?

It would have been on PK or HPFF or an actual site where the mods seemed to give a damn, but No, they just stuck it right back up after a couple of days under the same name.

I just did a search at FF.net, it seems to be down, unless they changed the name.

Oh! I had to type in the WHOLE title.

FF.net has really gone down the hole these past years.

ugh, how irritating that must be! I hope it gets resolved soon.

Hmm...do we know any hackers that could crash the site?

I sent in a report too, though I may have got a bit...catty. That's just...*grrr* I can post it if anyone's all that interested, but I doubt the report will be heeded, because obviously they don't value the privacy and trust a writer has when posting their work. Gits.

Having known many people in other fandoms that have been stolen from, usually ff.net has been pretty decent about quickly pulling the stolen fics. I'm most surprised with the thought that the user ID still exists. Perhaps they created a new ID with the same name? With the other instances I'm familiar with, the story, the user ID and everything the user had on the site got deleted.
Hopefully with a little more time they'll realize this is a new issue and get it pulled.
Best of luck
