You would think that in this day and age, people would at least spell-check when stealing someone's work.

Let me be clear. MY SITE - the original - is the ExposingGod.com site

the plagiarist is the eastwind site.

there may have been some confusion about that.

You think that's creepy, there was a guy who stole my biography, word for word clients included (and no he didn't work for them to). Even though he took it down after an email still had to change it, it was tainted. Just plain out weird people in internet photography land. Tell word press you want it removed, they're pretty good so I hear.

i contacted wordpress.com, they referred me to wordpress.org which states they can do nothing about it....so I find out who hosts the site, but the phone number is not working.........i shouldn't really be surprised..

I dont think its a real blog. It looks like it is just a template filled with random posts taken from other blogs to showcase what the blog could look like. Still I'd either ask for your post to be taken down or at least a link to the original post stating you as creator.
