    Wow I see those who wanna venture out on their own had to steal off someone's domain their content. How unprofessional.

    The real deal http://www.coast2coastchat.com

    Copycat http://www.freewebs.com/chatdollars/information.htm

    Why can't people be more original or at least ask for permission?

    The owner of Coast 2 Coast Chat is seeking legal action against the person who stole her content off her site.

    Well at least they didn't copy the looks too.

    I don't know why they want to copy that site anyways, probably out to make a quick buck.

    Yes, nothing like finding your own site copied word for word after putting hard work into it, been there.

    Or you're just promoting your own site. Clever!

    The post does beg the question, why is she posting here? It's not like the content was all that spectacular.

    Same thing happened to me. Send a takedown notice to their hosting provider.

    Looks like it was just a free hosting server anyways..

    These sites come and go daily.

    yup been there too just happened recently. tried to help someone out, told them everything i know, showed them my site I worked my azz off on, and they stole it. changed the wording a little bit and went on from there. guess thats what i get for helping people. from bhw too :(

    its cool tho cuz now if anyone does anything similar to my new pages i will persecute. i research and work too hard and put too much thought into my stuff to get ripped off. i feel for coast2coast thats for sure

    You should sue them for both 'Pledgerism' and ''Plagiarism".
