U wouldn't believe!

Nope, i'm not reffering to today's surprise visit from the Jehova's Witness. An aside: they haven't come a-knocking in years...and my although I'm in dire need of spiritual help, that story is for another post.

I'm reffering to some bimbo galavanting about by the name Veronique a.k.a Lysa!!! She has the gall to lift my articles from my award winning blog and post them as hers. I don't blame her for being a fan [note with anger comes a hint of vanity :-> ] So, the first time i left her a piece of my mind [dare any of you haters esp MJY,MsK,Ms Daud ask "and what were u left with?")she deleted her blog...and later re-emerged having deleted the post with my comment, plus 3 others. But she still has 8 of my posts well copy-pasted. Nevertheless, she's at least had the time to make relevant gender and name changes...how very kind?

No credit has been given...and note she's not even earning anything..so what is the whole point of lifting stories???

My main worry is by the time u get to her blog she may have fled or deleted it but hopefully she doesnt realise we're on to her. Check her- Lysa

These are the posts she has NICKed!!!
(ebu compare and contrast-KCSE style)

1.What makes a Nick
2.MJ Blog Meme
3.Sipping on Vodka
4.A-Maize-ing Drops:Synopsis
5.A-Maize-ing Drops: the play
6.BadBoy or Mr Nice
7.The first time
8.Why I started working out.


she deleted

1.Pain!!!!
2.Food Poisoning!

In this instance I shall ignore that you called me a hater because we've got bigger fish to fry.

What is so sad is that this person took time change bits of the post to make it look like hers; though in one of them she forgot to remove the acronym 'KBW'.

I haven't been over there to voice my disgust/anger because we know what happened last time.

All I can is firstly pole because it is not fair for someone to take something that you have spent time working on.

Secondly, in some weird twisted way it proves what most people say about your blog - you are a gifted blogger and your posts are really good. Imitation, flattery, best form and all that..

Thirdly of all the posts that she stole from you; I most angered about the "What Makes a Nick' post. That post was about you. How empty must her character be if she has to steal 100 things about someone else?

Nick you forgot to include the i need the make over post...he he he.

Either way i guess the phrase "immitation is the best form of flattery" would not apply here.

Sad is the one word reserved for this character...lol@her switching the name from what makes nick to what makes lisa..she could have three things to say about herself?

*smh* in disgust

I am really angry on your behalf Nick, have you considered contacting her site's provider? I don't know what the rules are or if there are any (ps have you got a creative license? You should get one). I guess it highlights the fact that we bloggers - or anyone on the net - is sorta at the mercy of spineless plagiarists.

@mjy:she is shameless in almost a cute way..yaani she reminds me of those dumb guys who would dub in class word for word even something that was grammatically wrong

@msanii: that was funny. for a second i was like "was there a post i missed?" kumbe...good one

@memoire:ati nini-haven't heard of a creative licence..but will look into that as you look into coming back(wink)

Hey Nick....think I can get her to plagiarize my shameless word-play of a post "Samayam"? Wouldn't that be something...!

Woiye!!!!! AS in that mama is really not serious! I agree with MJY you are gifted but this is not the way someone appreciates you! Sorry babe. Some people really are at the bottom of the food chain.

Allright! This is really where the heart of the matter is. Behold the great Nick(yes! both of us are great)....and someone has the guts to copy yu'r work?.....That must be the dumbest thing i ever saw. Talk of ujinga being taken to a whole new level...forgive my french...

lakini...are yu guys thinking of this in another way. There are two sides of this whole story. Either Nick has an alter ego....Okay. this is what KymmBr thinks. Nick wrote up another blog and potrayed himself as one ill chic. hahaha. anyway, this is just my mad side being expressed.

but seriously Nick, am really soryy and i feel yu 100%. This is really sad.
ca'mon, can't we begin blog wars episode 4? call me if yu wanna give it a shot. being a mama will only make the war more interesting....hahaha

The "Which Disney Princess are you?" was another one Nick consciously forgot on his list of plagiarized posts

Boss, anyone who makes a post relating her likeness to Cinderella needs to be treated with the contempt that she and her shameless plagiristic diab deserves.

*sa (shetani ashindwe)* in disgust..

Nick aka babyface do you know that this chic would be stalking you for your writing and looks if she lived anywhere near you? You'd have an even bigger problem, lakini still thats low how and why would anyone do it. pole sana Nick.

Q1. How did you find out?
Q2. How can someone be so sad?
Q3. What is the point of "stealing" a blog (guess that goes with Q2)
She deleted it, so I didnt get to read it, now I am mad

That is real scary, plagiarising blogs.

I have been saying you write very well but no one (i.e. MJY) will listen to me:) Otherwise, why would this young woman shamelessly lift your posts like this?

I agree with Saurabh - get a Creative Commons License. It can act like a deterrent although I am not sure it will actually stop people from copying your work without your knowledge.

Pole sana Nick & I really feel for you. She's got to be the most shameless excuse for a human being.
Was she stealing mangoes at the market while the rest of us learned how to write?!
If she's ever found she should be banned from going anywhere near a digital device for 15 yrs.

I must have missed it--or at least I couldn't follow the link. Pole sana Nick, but you're very funny when you are pissed off. So my LMAO doesn't mean that I don't feel your pain. I do, I do.

Why are you people talking about poop? Altho it certainly fits Miss Veronique. Pole dude. Imitation, flattery etc

LOL!!! Nicko. Lakini honestly who is this miss Veronica, How can she be bila taste, I mean plagarism is wrong, but plagirising Nick's Blog!!! That is a cardinal sin!!! Its painful enough to read nicko's blog once, but now having to read it twice, somewhere else on the net... That is just cruel and unusual punishment for blog readers
and for this I propose that miss whoever she is be fried and at the stake for causing us blog readers so much pain and anguish. what she did is inexcusable, any twit with brain would know that Nicko's blogs are not to be reproduced under any circumstances for the sake of public well being.

Since she has done us the favor of taking down her blog, I will assume it was a mistake, a faux pas on her part, young and stupid as they say.

BTW Nicko how did you find out that she as engaging in this heinous crime of posting you blogs somewhere else? are you connected? igo gitu?
