Update (or lack thereof) on stolen story on ff.net  
My stolen story is still up on ff.net on the account of a ridiculously stupid person now going by the name "The King Says - Fuck You." Nice. Really classy.

I have asked fanfiction twice to please take it down. No response. I've reported it to stop_plagiarism but haven't heard back yet.

I just want the stolen story taken down. I don't think that's too much to ask of ff.net. I had heard they were slow to respond, if they responded at all. I see now it's true.
Current Mood: aggravated

Holy Hannah really?! I'm so sorry that happened to you! What a violation! I just can't believe people sometimes, what an asswipe.

Hmmm, do you think it would help if I went to complain to ff.net as well? I have an account there (granted I'm hardly ever on that site except to post, lol, frankly I'm surprised they haven't kicked me off yet for illicit content ;)). But hey, maybe a chorus of voices will get their attention.

Edited to say... went to tell the guy off and I see I'm one of many, lol. For what it's worth (although I know it's of little comfort considering the depth of the violation) I left him(?) a rather scathing comment.

I saw your response to his post. Thank you!!

It just annoys me to no end that ff.net hasn't done anything about taking it down. They need to be more responsive to these problems. Otherwise, people like the idiot who has stolen 2 stories now will think they can get away with it!

Thank you again!!!

Oh, and BTW, I saw your request for a proofreader for your KiSCon submission. You're going again this year? I wish I could but it's out of the question for me. So jealous if you are going!!!

I saw your updated post that the plagiarist took the story down... thank goodness!!! That must be a huge relief to have that over with, huh? Though I know you're probably still reeling from the horribleness of experience *hugs*.

That guy (or gal?) has some seriously bad karma heading his/her way.

Yes, I am going! So excited, but it was a near miss, not going to lie. Finances have been incredibly tight this year and I almost couldn't swing it, but a temp position doing accounting type things kind of landed in my lap (in addition to my normal job) so I was able to sign up last minute. I wish you were going, I'd love to talk with you once more! Maybe awarrington and rhaegal can be persuaded to host one in the States again... I will certainly put a bug in their ear while I'm there. ;)

I sent a report in as well. I hope that fanfiction.net does something soon.

Thank you!!!

It's still up as of this morning. FF.net needs to be more responsive to these problems!

Maybe it will be deleted soon?

Thanks again!

Frankly, I wouldn't stay with an archive that doesn't even respond to something like that. I wonder if it's possible to post something there to SAY it's stolen?

I posted a "review" saying it's mine. 11 other people have posted "reviews" saying it's stolen. The a**hole blocked me from his account so I can't communicate with him again.

I'm very disappointed that ff.net isn't doing anything about it. I wouldn't post my stories there any longer but I usually get lovely comments from the readers when I do post there. So I'm in a quandary. If I weren't a review whore, it wouldn't be such a problem, you know?

I'll keep you posted!!

I'm glad you managed to do that anyway. Hopefully other people will see that and avoid that person, at least.

Do you use AO3? I haven't had any issues there, and the reviews are great, plus you do get kudos even if people don't actually comment. I've never used ff.net, so it's hard to judge the difference, and had really only been on LJ before I joined the H50 fandom. Who doesn't love comments, though! They are half of why we write!

I will watch out to see what happens with you!

OMG did you see the dumb-ass has now done the same thing with a story in the NCIS fandom? Wonder if it's the same idiot who was doing to before and has come back with a different name?!

Fools like this are just as bad as the trolls that go around!

Hopefully, it will be taken care of soon as it should be since it's out and out plagiarism!
