INFRINGEMENT - PLAGIARIZED
TO WEB DESIGNERS:
PLEASE CREATE YOUR
WEBSITE USING YOUR OWN WORDS, NOT MINE!
It has taken fifteen long years to create,
design, research and write this website, which is
of course ongoing. This site contains extensive
information, written in my own words and style,
with the exception of specific articles, flyers
and personal experiences (reproduced with
permission and/or source acknowledgement).
Being such a huge website
makes this body of work a target for copy/pasting
by amateur web designers who refuse to take the
time to research and write data in their own
words. These people think stealing an authors work
is meaningless, quick and easy to duplicate, and
that there will be no ramifications. Breach of
copyright is a serious offense. Plagiarized
content is unacceptable.
Copy/pasting info from
someone else, apart from being unethical and
unprofessional, can potentially seriously damage
the body of work that has taken so very long to
create and present in concise and easily
understood form. Several technical reasons include
search engine robots and ranking. Another reason
is that web surfers are turned off by having to
read identical duplicate content over and over
that is posted on multiple sites.
We understand that some
people think it is ok as they honestly have no
clue that copy/pasting is wrong. We also
understand that others practice this deceitful
action knowing full well what they are doing!
Some people steal entire
pages, whilst others take paragraphs. Some people
copy/paste info and apply it to imitation machines
or completely different products.
I have a computer
program that i run occasionally to see exactly
who and what specifically has been taken without
and copy/pasting of information, data and
images from this website will not be tolerated
If you really want to use
some specific information found within any
website, please send an email permission request
to the author and if approved, include the source
of the info out of professional respect to both
the author and the reader.
Info on this site may be
printed out, but may not be copy/pasted to
another website under any circumstances.
