    LOL - I never really thought it would happen to me, being a horrible web designer and all. But it did, on several pages. Some other web publisher has copied and pasted my ads (not design), and switched out the id number. They are also using my titles, headings, and body text!

    here is the links I found to the site that has strikingly similar ads. They must have scooped these from a while back, 'cause they still have the "no links lines" code, but it is exactly the way I had it, and still do to some extent.

    Them - http://www.trusty-discount.com/Accessories.html

    Me - http://www.thecouponguy.com/jewelrystore.html

    Them - http://www.trusty-discount.com/cosmetic.html

    Me - http://www.thecouponguy.com/cosmetic.html

    They havent done this to with all pages, but I wonder how many of you got strikingly similarities between your pages, titles, text, and headings, and ads, with this other persons site? Good grief Charlie Brown!

    Oh yeah... this real familiar too!

    meta name="REVISIT-AFTER" content="5 days"
    meta name="robots" content="index,follow"
    meta name="Coverage" content="Worldwide"
    META NAME="MSSmartTagsPreventParsing" CONTENT="TRUE"

    This is the exact same thing I have in my source code, in the heading

    I think I'll leave it alone - lol - I'm not even sure it is a "guy". Matter of fact, to avoid embarassment, I think I'll leave this individual alone. If my researching, and speculations are what I think they are, then it is possibly a sad commentary on a much respected person who frequents this forum.

    Come on Big Chuck... Drop some names! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] It is pretty sad that someone has to copy to that extent. I can see someone maybe using your meta tags as an example but sheesh.

    I don't know which I am more mad about:

    1. The fact that they "borrowed" your content. or
    2. Their page has a better google page rank than my main site. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    BigChuck - It's saturday and I don't want to think! I had to think all week. J/k I am going to figure it out.

    Hello Chuck....

    In this particular case, imitation is definitely not the most sincere form of flattery. You have been robbed I'm afraid.

    Many folks out there take ideas concerning page layout from many different sites. Taking ad-copy however is, in my opinion, stealing intellectual property.

    man, what a loser, dont worry big chuck this guy isnt gonna make any money, his sites suck, he cant even do a good job of copying a site and his sites wont rank in search engines becaues they are just "holding pages" that redirect to free servers

    elizabeth is gonna be mad when she sees freestuffbox.com

    i dispute that this is a respected member, its obvious from looking at his pathetic efforts that this guy has an abnormally low intelligence

    chuck, dont just sit back and do nothing, contact his ISP visit his links page and contact those that he has duped into swapping links, alex bet from answershopping is a reciprocal linker, you can bet your life that alex will drop his link

    email the idiot and tell him you just told 1000 people about his dirty deeds

    dont just do nothing, you arent the type that wears a "give quiche a chance" tshirt, you are big chuck

    I have NOTHING to do with that site. I first became aware of it when the occasional clickthrough showed up in my logs.

    I am aware of at least one other site (not even in English) that has linked to a bunch of my pages.

    I'm not sure what to make of it!!!

    I exchanged a link with Trusty-Discount, just as I have exchanged links with numerous other webmasters on this board. That is my only connection to Trusty-Discount. I did not know Trusty-DIscount had any connection with freestuffbox.net.

    Here's another one to check out: http://www.justfreestuf.com/

    Chuck, I give you my word that I had nothing to do with your pages being copied. I hope you believe that.

    WebMistress might be able to help me out here, because I shared the foreign-language page with her several weeks ago. I just checked the URL and it's now leading to Trusty-Discount.

    The link to Trusty-Discount will be coming off my links page as soon as I post this. I linked to them in good faith but this is not what I had in mind!!!

    Elisabeth Archambault

    Edited because the other site is not freestuffbox.com, it's .net. This was mentioned incorrectly in an earlier post.

    Packy, you could copy it, and pretend someone else did it. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] Would that work for your self esteem?

    NEVER. And I would guess that is true of the majority of people here.

    I make Big Chuck look like a kitten in comparison. I don't appreciate you referring to his work as "sheet". Big Chuck is my friend from way back with the "Memphis Boyz Mafia", and I will [ya'll are as bad as "big brother" - I was only kidding. Quit this warsaw pact communist stuff, ok?!!!] Do you understand?

    Now for the kid... Big Chuck says he is accepts your apology, ok? Just don't do it again. And, he knows you are not "new" to this forum, and that you are using broken englsh to make it appear like you are not the person you really are.

    BTW, Quiet, Packy, et al... I get decent traffic to that page, and make decent money from my jewelry merchants - pretty good "sheet", huh?

    Man, I like hooking up with another identity. I'll log-in as one of my favorite identities, "Leader" here in a minute.

    To err is human, to forgive is divine - you are forgiven.

    leave my sigs alone!

    <font color=red>A) If you're threatening anyone on this board we'll take care of that. That has nothing to with BigBrother. We didn't know you were kidding - and if we knew we wouldn't have cared about it in this case. On a side note: There are ppl who think it's fun not only to threaten but to harm others.

    B) If you see us as BigBrother and compare us with the Warsaw Pact.. you have all the right to leave. And trust me, if you dont watch out, you will leave anyway.

    C) Do not tell us to leave your signature alone. Members have a RIGHT to use a signature. We do not have to grant you that right. And if you abuse that right like you have - you will no longer have this right.


    Let me quote your previous question: "Do you understand?"
