To the jerk stealing my content…

You! Yeah, You! You know who you are... Cut it out!

Not only are you the biggest tool on the planet for stealing other people's content, but you don't even seem to have the decency to NOT hotlink files from my server. Bandwidth isn't free you know! If you'd only asked if you could use some of my content on your site I would have gladly said yes, provided that you gave credit where credit is due and provided a link back to the real article.

In any case, your lack of consideration has caused me to spend my lunch break today writing a plugin for WordPress that allows me to block users from certain countries. It's a little rough around the edges right now but I'm going to polish it up over the next couple days and I'll probably release it to the public so that others can block your thieving-self...

    I'm just about ready for a public release of this plugin... Expect a new post later today or tomorrow morning at the latest.

    I hope this thief gets blacklisted.

    The preview of your plugin was cool, if I used wordpress I'd be all over it. Like that thief to your content.
