Steal this site

Posted on Sunday, September 21st, 2003

Dave!There are so many things that piss me off, but I work real hard to maintain a sense of calm through it all. Then along comes that one little straw that breaks the camel's back and pushes me into thermonuclear meltdown. Today it happens to be people stealing images from my web site. Actually, if they were to just steal the images, I probably wouldn't be that upset... but they don't. Instead, they just link to the graphic on my site so it displays on their site, but I'm still paying to host it! I tell you, it takes a real ass-wipe to not only steal from you, but then continue to charge you for the theft! No permission, no credit given, just idiots who are working overtime to make the internet suck for the rest of us.

Case in point is this site that appears to be from some 10 year-old girl in Germany or something. Somebody who slaps together a lame-ass web site, and then steals all the content, including numerous images from my Hard Rock Cafe pages. What a piece of shit! And, after checking my web logs, I see that this is fairly common... I have HUNDREDS of illegal requests for the various images I've got on my site, some of them really unlikely (stealing from my MIA/POW pages, like this... what the heck?).

So now when I get back from vacation, I am going to rename all the directories on my site, and replace all the stolen images with big graphics that say "THIS IMAGE WAS STOLEN WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM DAVEWEB.COM!!" and have a picture of something grossly offensive (suggestions welcome!). Will it teach these lowlife morons anything? Probably not. But I'll find it funny for about 10 minutes, and isn't that really all that counts?
