Dan,
You are big time now stepping into the realm of defending your content

Interestingly enough, this is not the first time this has happened. Some time ago, defcon1.org had several of my articles. Today I found another example. A reader wrote http://www.freebsddiary.org/phorum/list.php?f=3&article_id=51 about an error. Later, not having the message to hand, I went to search for the phrase. I used Google and found this http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=%22correct+way+to+stop+httpd+is%22&btnG=Google+Search You will note that defcon1.org has taken the content, complete with error. I have not yet corrrected the error, but will do so soon.

The defcon article is at http://www.defcon1.org/html/Software_Articles/Apache-start-stop/apache-start-stop.html and I have saved the image at http://www.freebsddiary.org/images/defconf1.org.apache.stop.start.jpg.

It's sad. I don't mind people using my work to better their lives. But I resent theft.

More than understandable. As a fellow how-to writer, I am always amazed how many places I will find identical articles while doing research. What's even more amazing, is they all seem to have a different author.
