Subject: Help needed dealing with pirate
My site "Common Errors in English" <http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/> is
so popular that it has been repeatedly pirated. Usually a complaint to the
pirate or his/her service provider does the trick, but I've been unable to
make any headway with "WritersWorkshop" at simplenet.com. There is no clue
on the site as to who has created this unauthorized mirror; and messages to
the postmaster at simplenet.com go unanswered. It is particularly
irritating because the pirate page is an old version of my work with some
errors in it that have since been corrected on the real site; but people
continue to write "correcting" me.
Do any of you know how to get at the "writersworkshop" folks or otherwise
deal with this problem?
The pirate page is at
