please read!

My blog is being stolen. 

No, it hasn’t been hacked.

But someone has been reblogging every single one of my posts for *two months*.

There have been 30 reblogs. Yes, 30—thirty—you read that right.

He literally reblogs *everything* I write.

The thief: thereluctantpoet
The blog with all of my stolen content:  https://thereluctantpoetweb.wordpress.com/
His email address: chucklindholm@hotmail.com

As you know, many of my posts are *very* personal. But even the ones that aren’t—what the fuck? This is MY site with MY words.

I get that reblogging is allowed which I HATE, by the way. Just fucking link to the occasional post or to my blog in general. Don’t take it. This is a total dick move, and I’m furious and very very upset.

He has basically copied my blog entirely for two months.

This is spam reblogging. I mean, look at them all.

I have tried contacting this blogger directly several times to ask that he stop reblogging all of my posts, but he never replies. I have blocked him, but apparently that doesn’t stop his reblogging because it continues.

I have contacted WP help three times with no response whatsoever. (Not even an automated response that my request/email was received. Nothing.) I’ve posted in the Support Forum… nothing yet.

I am getting nowhere, and I want the constant reblogging to stop.

This user shouldn’t even be allowed on WordPress since he is taking literally ALL of my content.

I refuse to make my blog private because of this thieving loser. Then he wins. Fuck that.

Maybe if *everyone* here tells him to stop stealing my posts, he will stop. But I don’t want to give his site my traffic either. Maybe if everyone emails him? I don’t want to ask you to do that either.

I am so frustrated. I have literally cried over this. I have enough to deal with in my life, and now I have to deal with this, too. I’ve been patient, hoping he would stop after I reached out several times. But no.

Let’s see if he reblogs *this* post.

[No, I am not even including my guys in this post. I am *that* upset.]

p.s. – below is only page 1 of reblogs… I have even more.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. It seems like he ONLY rebloga, there is no original content that I could see at all! Ugh I’m sorry you have been hit by such a jerk!

    What purpose does he have? this is really crazy. I’m sorry it happened to you.

  3. I don’t mean to poke my head in this one, but I think he reposts things he likes to read. He does it with most of mine too. And has done so for years. At least with mine, he’s not stealing. He keeps the original credits and it links back to the originals. However, you did reach out to him and try to make him stop, to which you’ve received no response. That’s not okay. I’m hoping that he does realize that sharing your posts isn’t something you want.

  5. Sanda, I kid you not I was thinking of this the other day.. because every time I comment, I see his reblogged on reluctant poet.
    At first I thought it was no biggie, but I saw it every time and was going to actual talk about it to you…
    It’s so strange. AND SO annoying that it’s happening to you.
    Also I did some digging and found a way you can remove the reblog option
    https://wordpress.com/forums/topic/reblog-disable/#:~:text=Yes%2C%20if%20you%20decide%20you,appear%20on%20your%20blog%20posts.
    Please do report him, but for now you can remove the reblog option
    Let me know if it works!

    Oh didnt know that could happen on a Worspress site. Thought they guaranteed your content. How did you find out?

    I’m very sorry for what is happening. I am new with the whole blogging thing, but you said you don’t like the reblog feature.
    As I saw on the Internet, you can disable the possibility for people to reblog your content.
