Today (Sunday 1st March) the much talked about American Council of Witches launched their website. Reading their FAQs I quickly found that I had been plagiarised! They had taken my questions from their FB group with out asking me and yes, I did check my Other Inbox with a modicum of false expectation… nothing!
They also used questions asked on their FB group by several other members.
There is an old saying: actions speak louder than words.
Trust has been broken.
My emotions have run from anger to tears; from disbelief to rage; I lost a whole day due to this theft – because it is theft, there is no doubt about that.
I was not the only one either, others had their questions copied and pasted from the FB group to the website.
Thankfully, a member of that group, not note someone sitting actually on the council – no a member of the group picked up what I was saying and knew it was wrong. Grateful thanks to him. He contacted the admins of the group (who as far as I can see [as no one answers on the councils board any questions on that group to date] do sit of the council board) and the FAQs page was taken down.
End of… well, not quite. The usual happened – I and the others who had spoken up about this issue were harassed by other members! *sigh… and it rumbled on into the night long after I had retired to bed for the night.
These are some of the screen caps to prove what I say is true:-
