Dear Admin of Tuxmachines,

I would just like to request that you could maybe link to the real authors of articles.
"Distro Review - Xubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex"

It appears that the owner of http://linuxblogonline.org/ is just copying and pasting other people's articles without having the common courtesy of providing a link back to the original.

I was quite surprised to see that my article appeared on TuxMachines in the first place, but when I saw that the link was to another site, I thought i'd post.

To be honest, anybody who writes an article will gladly let you copy and paste it, but at least give the author some credit via a link or trackback.

I have seen many sites such as http://linuxblogonline.org/ which get a collection of articles which they claim as their own, and once they have generated enough traffic, start filling the site with google adsense adverts.

Whatsmore he is actually including images which are hosted on my server as well. Once in a while doesn't matter, but article thieves get their site on Digg, the rest of us pay for their image bandwidth.

A simple Google of the article title would have led you to the original site.

Thanks in advance.

No problem at all Susan, I

No problem at all Susan,

I am a regular visitor to TuxMachines, and was rather surprised at the link. I have no problem at all with any of my articles being used at all, but a link back is basic courtesy, something which the owner of linuxblogonline seems to have forgotten. As it happens I have deleted a lot of out-of-date articles now anyway, so only the recent reviews and howto's remain on the front page at LxH.

I have often posted howto guides and articles by other authors both on Dreamlnux Forums and The Linux-Hardcore, but always with proper recognition for the original owner.

Anyway, thanks for the quick reply, and keep up the good work, TuxMachines is a truly great site.

re: copied articles

I'm sure am sorry about that. I try to avoid that happening, but sometimes my memory and/or search fail me. So, I always appreciate it when someone informs me of articles and sites that steal others' work. Nothing irritates more than content thieves. I've had it happen to my work before too.

As it turns out, I had linked to your original article when it first came out and I changed the link in the other as well.

Again, I apologize and I will try to remember that http://linuxblogonline.org/ is a content thief. Feel free to remind me if needed.

Sincerely,
Susan

What happens if pictures get moved by mistake?

Well, accidents can happen Wink

SUSE: openSUSE Tumbleweed and SUSE in HPC

  • Krita, Linux Kernel, KDEConnect Get Updated in Tumbleweed
    There have been a few openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots released in the past two weeks that brought some new features and fixes to users. This blog will go over the past two snapshots. The last snapshot, 20180416, had several packages updated. The adobe-sourceserifpro-fonts package updated to version 2.000; with the change, the fonts were refined to make the Semibold and Bold heavier. Both dbus-1 and dbus-1-x11 were updated to 1.12.6, which fixed some regreations introduced in version 1.10.18 and 1.11.0. The gtk-vnc 0.7.2 package deprecated the manual python2 binding, which will be deleted in the next release, in favor of GObject introspection. Notifications that caused a crash were fixed in kdeconnect-kde 1.3.0. The 4.16.2 Linux Kernel made ip_tunnel, ipv6, ip6_gre, ip6_tunnel and vti6 better to validate user provided tunnel names. Due to a build system failure, not all 4.16.2 binaries were built correctly; this will be resolved in the 20180417 snapshot, which will be released shortly. Krita 4.0.1 had multiple fixes from its major version upgrade. The visual diff and merge tool meld 3.19.0 added new features like a new per-pane status bar with selectors for syntax highlighting and text encoding. Python Imaging Library python-Pillow 5.1.0 removed the freetype-2.9.patch and YaST had several packages with a version bump.
