No need to worry my friends, it looks like he has closed down his site. Even Rick got onto him in the end.

http://www.***************.com/content.php

It does go to show that if people stick together and complain, bad practices such as this can be stamped out.

BTW,are the ways he acted in keeping with his profession.

Here in the UK, where I live, they are called leeches.

Many thanks for listening

My, that was over rather quickly. I'm glad too, things like that are not only irritating, but certainly don't leave me with the best taste in my mouth.
I really enjoy websites like this, where I can share and get feedback on my own projects, and learn massive amounts from others. Events like this only serve to drive people away and harm the overall effectiveness of this medium as a whole. Fortunately, this seems to be done with.
Let the model building resume!

For the record, I did post a couple of items on ***************. The Coomber build in the forum as a build in progress, and posted by me. The one on the home page was copied from there - not by me.

Nelson did ask my permission a while ago to use some of my posts, which I granted, on condition that it would not violate any copyright laws. I offered to rather re-post in my own time some of my older bits; which I would have much preferred.

My tooling odds 'n ends thread was copied as-is from HMEM and modified on the first page with only a couple of the initial lines changed - not by myself; this I am NOT comfortable with, but it appears to be removed from the H-M site now.

I will not continue to be a member on that site; there has now been too many "inconsistencies" - and I am really not interested in getting into online dung flinging wars. Between John's post and now, that site was shut down, and then re-opened again...

BC1 Jim, no my friend, you're not bad - thank you for looking out for me :bow:

Regards, Arnold

I had posted here but my legal advice suggested I remove the post.

While the reuse of material posted on web sites is unethical it is not illegal.

All we can do is hope other site owners will be ethical.
Most are but some are not.

Again, they are breaking no laws!
They can copy anything they want to and there really isn't much that can be done about
it in a legal account.

Let's hope they are an exception to the rule and in a normal arena the posts made on
a web site will not be legally stolen by anyone else.

I just noticed your new tag line. Kind of cute. Do the lathe's pay any attention to it? :big: :big: :big:

I was thinking perhaps more like a rat like substance...though not good enough to be a real rat mind you...

I am not sure what is going on with that site, but it seems that they are lifting content from many of the other machinist related sites, there has been related post stolen from Practical Machinists and Mad Modder, that I have seen. I would guess that they are trying to build their site in the hopes that they can sell more ads.
