pissed off at a work of mine stolen...

    I was browsing a blog and found that a short story of mine, posted on a forum a year or so ago, has been copied and posted without ANY credit given to me at all. Without asking me, uses their work as my own...pissed off...
    I have since added more parts, and I have the unedited versions, so I KNOW that this was MINE.
    Yet there is no way for me to contact this person to tell them to take it down. What should I do?

    NOTE: The nature of this story is rather embarrassing in subject matter, so the fewer people I could get involved with this, the better.

  2. Contact support and give all the details.

    I looked over things quickly, and maybe I am blind or it's late and I'm low on sleep and lazy, but I'm not entirely sure how to go about that.
    Links?

  4. It's at the bottom of this page.

    issue:
    I do not have a blog here. Only they do. It says I cannot get support unless I have a blog.

    Please, explain.

  6. You can fill out the form anyway; you have a WP.com user ID, and that's enough. If it INSISTS on a blog being filled in, just put wordpress.com and explain in the box you don't have a blog.

    thank you. I'll see if it works. For all I know the site is not really connected here, but I clicked where it said to leave a comment, and it told me to log in, and a few more clicks lead me back here.
    Sorry if I wasted anyones time. I hope this can be resolved. I would have contacted the blog owner first, but it was not doable.

  11. I think going through this way is the best. Tell them you got my permission to use my blog so you could get help, give them a link to the post on that blog that stole your stuff, give them a link to the forum where your stuff is posted if you can, or offer to email them a copy of the story, include a link to this thread for clarity, and they'll take it from there.

    I did most of that, except say that I got your permission. Whoopse...I little thievery of my own, though unintentional.
