A Recipe Site: A Recipe for Plagiarism

If you are reading this post anywhere other than Words to Eat By, you’re reading a plagiarized post. A Recipe Site is stealing my blog posts in their entirely and posting them on their own site with no attribution. And since there is no contact info on the site, all I can do is leave comments and hope that this thievery will stop. If you’re a food blogger, I suggest you head on over there and look for your own work; I doubt I’m the only blog they’re stealing from.
It’s a WordPress site, so hopefully I can find someone at WordPress who will take down this pathetic excuse for a blog.
Anybody got any other ideas?

  1. Not that this excuses or makes up for the lifting, but there is a little link to your original post at the bottom (of the Pi day post, anyway).

    I've been reading your stuff since you started and think your recipes and writing are terrific.

  2. I did see that, Susanne. But since neither my name nor Words to Eat By appears on the site AND they're giving credit for my posts to "syndicated," "aperio," or "admin," it doesn't exactly mollify me 😉

    Thanks for the kind words! And please, comment more frequently!

  3. SO WRONG!!! I've just tweeted your post about this so everyone can be warned. how do some people sleep at night?

  4. I have been known to look through PAGES of recipes from generic recipe sites until I find a recipe from a "real" blog, website, etc. because I am so leery of this exact situation…

  5. It's actually not a WordPress blog, that's just the blog software they use. Here's a link to the WhoIs info. You may have some luck if you contact their server.

    Best of luck to you, I can only imagine how frustrated you must feel!

  6. Thanks, Angela! I found that info earlier today & faxed a complaint to the ISP. Hopefully it'll be addressed sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, I'm reluctant to blog anything substantial. Sigh.

  7. Ugh, that's really annoying, not to mention wrong! I hope you get this resolved soon.

    For what it's worth, I do see the copyright notice on your feed now. 🙂

  8. So wrong I'm glad to see you got it sorted
