Last week, my friend, literary collaborator and partner in crime, William Kendall, discovered that someone initially known as "dedi" had usurped Beishir Books as his/her blog title over on Blogger. Upon further inspection, we discovered that "dedi" had not one, but several blogs--55 in all--most of which have the word "books" in their title.
How many of those titles were stolen from other bloggers? I have no idea. But I wouldn't be surprised if all of them were blogs created by other people.
A couple of days age, "dedi" became Desi Jumiati--and all of those blogs, previously devoid of posts, began to fill up with posts. Either Desi Jumiati is one prolific blogger or a spammer loading up before hitting other bloggers with "Follow Me" comments.
Who is Desi? According to her Facebook profile, she's a smiling, lovely young woman, probably from India, judging by her attire. There's not much else on that profile, but that's more than is given on any of the Blogger profiles she claims as her own.
Several of us have reported her theft to the powers that be at Blogger. It's been a waste of time so far. They've done nothing. I own my domain name. It was located at WordPress until Collin began setting up our website at Go Daddy: http://beishir-books.com.
Any ideas on how to stop this blog squatter? I'm open to suggestion!
