hmmm I wonder if they show the whole thing to customers signed in? I'm curious how he got your whole article if you don't show the whole thing. My trust in this platform is going to hell in a hand basket.

But wait, there's more!

I saw this thread and googled a line from just ONE of my available articles. Guess what, here it is in all its stolen glory:

http://www.digitalwebworks.ca/5-seo-hacks-get-results/

I only show 33% of my articles, so what's going on here? I'm done submitting articles to the catalog.

I've had issues with articles being scraped in the past too, but I haven't heard of Steem.it before now. I'm also going back to showing 33% of each article remaining in my catalog after seeing this.

I emailed Constant Content support about my own content being stolen by this Digital Web Works, and I pointed them to the Steemit thread here. Never heard back.

Yeah I don't even want to look cuz I'll rage. Let us know if they do something? They used to be pretty good about this stuff and then it seemed to have slowed down. Back in the day, associated content writers used to rip us off all the time or the digital pointless people would.

HG - I take it no word back yet from CC? The fact they somehow accessed your full article rather than the preview portion is especially disturbing.
