Blogdimension admits they received my cease and desist missive last month. To wit:
Your post is very unfair. Here is the response we sent you by email on March 31st so your readers make themselves an opinion. We post the same post & comment on our own blog so everybody will see how you exagerate. I call your attitude simple and free “bashing”. If you have some little honor you should delete your post.
Other thing: we delete immediately your blog from our index. And secondly, we make no money by providing this search service. We have some ads but it does not cover even 5% of our cost.
Mail sent on March, 31st to jason ( at ) xenogere (dot) com.
As I responded in the same comment thread, no such e-mail was received. I can’t claim it wasn’t sent, but I can claim with the fortitude of law and certainty that it didn’t arrive in my inbox.
Otherwise, they only replied because my original bashing now shows up as content on their site, along with being in other search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN. I hope that leaves a mark…
Then they offer a disgusting lie: “we delete immediately your blog from our index.” NOT!
My blog is not only still included, but all of my content is still cached and served up as Blogdimensions’s own content. In violation of the “nocache” meta directives, in violation of the “nofollow” directives on my feeds, and in violation of my own copyright notice displayed on their site that states clearly that the content being displayed on any other site represents a copyright violation.
That means a blatant act of theft.
Then they send their lackey to do more bashing. “Mike” shows up and remarks on Blogdimension’s comment—before it was published!
Talk about being clueless.
And I can still go to their site and find my content cached, displayed with my copyright notice, and served up with ads to make money from my intellectual property.
So begins the war between me and some French company that thought they could pass under the radar with stupid excuses about software bugs.
Sorry. That doesn’t fly with me and doesn’t fly with the law.
Blogdimension is still a thief. Mike is now known as one of their insiders trolling the web to shoot down legitimate claims to copyrights, and the whole thing is a farce of epic proportions designed to steal from others.
Let us be clear about something: Blogdimension is not indexing my site; they’re indexing my RSS feed.
Hardly a search engine.
RSS is for syndication (hence the name RSS: Realy Simple Syndication).
It’s either used for reading a blog one has subscribed to or aggregating content for redisplay.
Blogdimension is doing the latter.
