PSA: fanfic getting stolen and reposted

This website is nabbing and reposting LJ fic. I'm told the admin will take down stuff down if the author complains, but is otherwise standing firm on his perceived right to repost anything he likes without permission. ladydragon76 has more information.

kwritten, there's TVD fic on the first page that was written for you, but it doesn't say who it's by. Taken care of.

Crossposted from Dreamwidth. Comment here or there. (comment count unavailable DW replies)

The reposted fic for Kelsey is by lynzie914, who knows about the reposter and already sent her complaint.

If you're interested, here is a bit more info about the whole issue. Apparently, the reposter makes money on ads on his website, so it's been requested not to go there directly in order to not give him extra profit while trying to check if he's stealing from us.

Aha, you are more on top of this than me. Good deal. I will change the link.

That's only because Lynzie herself wrote a post about this earlier today :).

It would appear the journal scraper is Russian, or with Russian connections, so the fanfiction is probably the equivalent of click-bait.

There's a distinctly creepy site linked to it - look at the eyes!

Yeah, I think you're right about the click-bait.

Yeah, I've been following this for a couple of days at ladydragon's LJ and at fanficrants. The guy really doesn't like being told he's not allowed to repost people's fic. (I think. His English is nigh-incomprehensible.)

(Heh, fanficrants. I haven't visited in so long!)

I had seen some of this cross my dash a bit. (Thankfully my name only crops up on the website as a recepient.) I'm super glad that ladydragon and others are taking action and spreading information.

Yeah, it's great that we have some people who know what's going on.
