@ "That Guy's Captions" Remove My Caps From Your Commercial!!!
While I might be inclined let slide the unattributed posting of a caption I had composed for a third party, taking it as a compliment from the one feeling my work deserves mention or presentation to a potentially wider audience, what I can NOT abide is having it done by a blogger whose site is nothing more than an ad-generator (money-maker for the blog owner?)!!!
Not to mention the fact that the scale he has posted the work snagged from other composers is too small to be read by viewers!
I am sending an email to the email address listed in the profile of "That Guy" listed at Rachel's Haven, though I doubt any response will result.
"" Hey, Ed;
Please, remove any work that I have composed from your blog, "That Guy's Captions"!
I don't mind that you lurk, hell, we all did/do to some degree or another.
What I do mind, however, is that, upon finding a caption story that I had created for someone else and that you seem to have liked, ("Meeting Her Mum-n-Dad"} you not only did not even anonymously comment to me that you like it, you copied & pasted the whole post including text and tags into a post on your commercial revenue blog.
That you aimed to profit from the captions you did create is one thing, but to cop others' works upon such time as your creative bent had, by your own admission, met its end, and post them to your advertisement-driven site to gain from the work of others is appalling!
If you had said something, even as simple as "Nice Cap" at any point, I might not be as upset about this. If there were some expression of personal interest by you on your blog, or a means for viewers to comment on your posts I might not be too bent about this. But the flagrant disrespect your actions today seem to represent is infuriating! Hell, if there was even some indication that the proceeds were going to further your transition or facilitate your SRS, I would gladly steer folks in your direction. Or if the funds generated were going to some other altruistic/philanthropic cause even, my ire would not be such. Even reposting on a blog that was not intended to generate revenues would be excusable!
But to line your pockets with the creative efforts of total strangers and not even have the decency to make contacting you easily possible!?!
Again, I ask that you delete any of the work I have created from your blog, and I am sorry that this letter is so terse. But the selfishness and disrespect displayed by your actions is simply unconscionable!""
Or, am I just being a bitch again, y'all?
