# Site stealers.

That’s right.
I’m not gonna’ name names but someone basically took this, changed the content a bit and re-uploaded it without permission (it’s copyrighted).

It might not seem like a big deal, but when you spend months working on a site with multiple other people and then someone just takes it? Yeah its a bit of a fuck you.

At the bottom I got a one liner saying:

Credits to twentytwoo for the website template

Granted they at least credited me, but that’s not really the point. I had several issues with this:

• Apparently the guy got paid \$300 to make the bot, and steal my site (up for debate)
• The source code is privated, so they just pulled some wget -r on it
• I don’t even know what they were using it for initially
• It’s not a template
• I made that site for Miki, and all I get from someone who steals stuff is “credibility” or “exposure” from some people I don’t even know.

Maybe I’m overreacting a bit, but yeah, it kind of pissed me off a bit. I think post people kind of get annoyed when you take their work and re-purpose it without asking them first. Hell, I would’ve been fine with them using it if the just asked first.

I don’t really want to start drama about it all, just an apology or whatever.

EDIT: Fuck Hifumi.

Return?
