I wonder why he didn't leave your comment. He left mine, and responded to it.

I've left him an answer. Maybe you should try leaving him a gentler --or shorter-- version of your "A Concerned Author" message. Spoonfeed him!

LOL. He seems strangely under-informed.

I wonder how someone gets 258,000 recommendations on Buy.com

Rebecca J Vickery (rebeccajvickery) I will try to "educate" him instead of rebuking him. But his cavalier attitude toward theft lit my fire. LOL Looks like as an "author" himself he could understand the concept of copyright infringement. And all those recommendations definitely seems inflated.

Rebecca J Vickery (rebeccajvickery) Hi Rowena,
We should be asking him "who is afraid of AWaY"??? LOL
I got this reply when I tried to post my revised comment:
Your comment must be approved by the site admins before it will appear publicly.

Rebecca J Vickery (rebeccajvickery) HI Rowena,
My "revised" comment has been added to his blog. I liked your response to his. I removed my earlier comment here as I did not want to seem to be inflaming the situation.

Rebecca,

Your link took me to... ahem... a cheap bodypart couponathon, albeit with links.

Was it the "howls of protest" article you intended us to check out?

Rebecca J Vickery (rebeccajvickery) So sorry. You now have the correct link posted.
I forget I am dealing with Yahoo here on my end and it cut off all except the main link. The couponathon is their lead story today (go figure???)
The index and article name did not make it I see.
Here is the "correct" link again:
http://bookbee.com.au/index.php/2010/...

I am not having any luck at all with links today so shall return to my writing. LOL
