Get off My Lawn!

So I'm not sure if this warrants a response or not...but it kind of ticked me off, so here goes.

No. You may not reproduce my writing on your blog. Especially if the request comes in the form of a traumatically grammatically poor spam request. If you think I am an excellent writer and actually do want to feature my work, number 1, lay off the crack, number 2, do me the courtesy of actually sending me an email instead of a spam comment, and number 3, that's what linking is for. Even then, if I don't know you, the answer is no. My writing is mine - you may not claim what goes on in my head, and I'm pretty sure this would be an uncredited type situation.

I am aware of what scrapping is and if you are putting my work up somewhere else, I will find you. And I will resort to all sorts of unpleasantness that will probably end up with you going into witness protection just to get me to stop bombing your world. Trust me - not worth it. 

Allrighty then. Now that we have that unpleasantness out of the way, more writing coming up soon!

I take it someone is trying to pirate your work? I bet you scared them off. You sure scared ME!

I've been getting "iffy" emails myself. I've turned off anonymous comments, but am still getting anonymous emails that are not going to Spam.

Thievery is intensely frustrating. I hope you aren't experiencing rampant stealery (not a word, but I don't have a thesaurus).

@Stephen - I swear I am one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I'm only a raging bitch when people try to be devious with me. I guess I'm a 4 year old at heart. I'd be happy to share with you...unless you don't ask and just take. In that case, it's MINE! ;-)
@Gossip Girl - I may have to turn off my anon comments. I just got another solicitation for stealing my blog.
@Pickelope - I agree! I haven't caught anyone red handed, but since they so nicely asked out in the spam box to use it...now I'm paranoid. Grrrr. By the way - stealery is an excellent word.

You need to make an exception for those who republish your posts in full with a link back to your blog. Such people are guilty of nothing worse than ass-kissing.

Let me talk to them. I'll give 'em what for.

@Michael - Aw, so sweet of you! I'll do it just to hear your accent. ;-)
