    CafeMom & Plagiarism
    You may want to check CafeMom for your articles and blog posts. They don't even try to reword the stuff..they just cut and paste it right onto the site.

    When contacted, they said they'll remove whatever articles I can find that have been plagiarized, that their visitors post the articles. But they obviously make no attempt to check what is posted on their site & reap the rewards until they are caught.

    Soooo.. if you write about anything that could fit w/ their site, you may want to dig around. Chance are you'll find some of your work sitting there.

    Hmm maybe they are? Maybe this should be under Merchants and not Affiliates. A lot of the article theft that I found is in the (appropriately named) Steals & Deals section. I found articles from six different sites and mine made seven. Not good. Pretty easy to figure out where the original work was written though by pasting sentences in Google - something the administrators should be doing. It became almost like a game - trying to find the original writer of some of the posts they have there.

    Interesting place. I see they are offering a toolbar too. Of course this one is a good toolbar.
    "..# No spyware and easy one-click uninstall! (Honestly! This isn't like some of the other toolbars out there.)

    The CafeMom Toolbar is totally free!.."
