  1. Ok, so I find my stuff there too. Huge surprise! Plus, virtually everyone else who’s even mentioned my blog AND. It isnt a site that I ascribe to nor am linked to such as tumblr, Instagram etc. Add that they didnt have my permission.
    However, upon further inspection, yes, my stuff is on there BUT it is ascribed to myself as the author, FURTHERMORE, it has a ” read more” that is linked to my blog here at WP. Being as most bloggers are looking or even trying to find ways to greater exposure. It may not be such a bad thing? Perhaps it may bring my blog to the attention of others not associated with WP th as t may have otherwise, never heard of me.
    One more place promoting my blog doesnt necessarily bother me.

    1. Oh, thank goodness to find a second blogger other than me, to have investigated and seen “Read More” , “Source” links, with the realization that it increases exposure !
      Tygpress has turned out to be a promotion of WordPress, bringing in readers from outside !

      “Tygpress was free promotion.” 😁 😁

  2. Thanks for sharing. I worked as a writer for executives for decades. Most of them took full credit for my words, and even held me back so they wouldn’t look ignorant if I left for a promotion. Many people tell me that’s fine for them, that it was part of my job. I only agree to a very limited extent. Now that I’m free of that “theft” it infuriates me to see this kind of thing. Thanks for spreading awareness. Hugs.

    It looks like the WordPress community owes you and the other bloggers who discovered this mess a big round of applause.
