You learn a lot about the internet when someone finds your old deleted blog, puts it back up (original URL and all), and claims your posts as their own, one assumes for general scamming purposes. Not exactly identity theft but certainly a copyright violation* There are ways to fight back, which involve a lot of going back and forth with copying links to prove authorship, and that’s now been done.
Many, many thanks to my computer-savvy friends for their support, advice and thoughts. I may be back for more soon enough if this does not get resolved!
* Like just about every other blogger, I really don’t mind when people use my stuff; all I ask for is a link back. This went far beyond that.
