Last year, I wrote a tutorial about using ‘Proxy in Firefox‘ on my old blog. Today I was doing a bit of research on the same topic.
While googling the things out, I found an exact copy of my old post on a blog hosted on wordpress.com. That blogpost was a complete ripoff of my original post. Even screenshots used in those posts were hotlinked from my blogger account. No attribution or linkback was provided to my blog or blog post.
Without a delay, I contacted the wordpress.com support and opened a thread in their support forum.
And I was surprised to see official responses rolling in a couple of minutes. The forum moderator responded in my thread, and within 15 minutes, I got an email from WordPress support team stating that duplicate post is removed from that wordpress.com hosted blog.
Seems like WordPress.com takes plagiarism very seriously.
I appreciate their support and quick response.
