Today........ today I'm about as mad as I've ever been. Steaming is not the word for it. Seething comes a little closer but still does not encompass just how irate I am. just about everyone knows what I do for a living, just look at my username. Well, I belong to a couple of "Industry" sites where I go for business news and just talking. Much like the chill out room here. Facebook has decimated them both (WAIT, this isn't about Facebook!), and my favorite of the two has been taken over by an entity called "Outdoor Amusement Association",NOT the tried and true always great "Outdoor Amusement Business Association". Its a poor excuse for an industry website serving mainly as a portal to ..... yeah, you guessed it, Facebook. As recently as a couple of weeks ago I logged in and wrote a short blog piece about the past season. For the last couple of days, I've been wanting to get a phone number from their classified section but... I can't log in (INVALID username!!! been there for YEARS) or even register/re-register. I noticed then that my blog piece was on the front page. Today when I tried again (after repeatedly trying to contact anybody in charge), I noticed MY blog was credited to "ADMIN". Not a mention of me as either Alan (my first name) OR Scott (my middle name and the one I use) or even indianacarnie, the name I wrote it under. No contact, no entry to site,no credit for MY piece thats on the *%^#*@$&% front page! I am (I hope) understandingly going out of my skull about this. Considering a lawyer actually but not sure of my standing legally. Will be researching this for the next few days. It does not seem right or legal for someone else to take my writing, even a blog, and take credit/profit for it.
