185 downloads on a stolen worksheet !!!

185 downloads on a stolen worksheet !!!
 
 
 
185 points were added to this member account  today , even after the comments from several members of this community saying that the work was created by another person.
 
The worksheet has been reported and still remains available on this site.

A private message was sent by me  asking the member if he / she could delete it and still remains available here: http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=189112#thetop .
 
 
We are encouraging this kind of attitude all the time we do a huge amount of downloads a work which we know is stolen . Just think about it !!
 
And for a moment try to imagine how would you feel if this printable http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=103652#thetop was your own creation.
 
Regards

You have all my support Vanda!
I wish I had sent you a private message to tell you about this stolen printable as I did (I don īt know how many times? more than 15?) with previous ones...Cry
 
To the community: Please, don īt tell us you don īt have time to read the signals / signs!!! When the traffic light is red, do you drive on??? Please, it takes a couple of seconds to scroll down the comments and see if the printable is authentic / genuine or not.

I would suggest caronaranjo be banned from the site, and the 185 point be credited to the real author, Vanda51. It īs only fair. At the same time, maybe I īm a bit more optimistic because I īm a new member to this site, but do you think there may be a slight possibility that caronaranjo had downloaded this worksheet and she had it in her files, while she meant to upload another one she had created and got confused? Maybe she has something to say, and/or apologise to Vanda51 and all the teachers that have downloaded the ws...
In any event, Vanda51, you have my support...

I also agree with you Vanda and get angry with those 185 downloaders.  caronaranjois is a new member. S/he should have read the rules but I think s/he didn īt. What s/he did is wrong but I can understand him/her since s/he is a new member. BUT I don īt understand those 185 people. If they could download the worksheet, then they are premium members and MUST know the rules very well. I think they wanted to get your worksheet without spending any of their voluable points.

I want to offer something here about downloading the worksheets. (Victor will decide if it is possible or not) I saw in some websites. When you download a worksheet your usename automatically appers in the thank list. A thank list may work in two ways: Sometimes we are in a hurry and cannot write comments but if our names apper in the list automatically, the owner of the worksheet can see who has downloaded the worksheet. The second, if it is a stolen worksheet, we can see who has downloaded it even if it is a stolen one. Nobody wouldn īt like to see his/her name in this list of a stolen worksheet.

What do you think of my idea? I ask everybody. Is it possibe, Victor?

All, and all  my support, Vanda.


agkk, you took my words out of my mouth.
You are quite right.
When you download something, and you know you don īt leave a track, that is rather easy, but if you do leave a visible track, well.. that is some other business.
May be Victor can do something about this, if anytime we downloaded we would be faced with a public notice, Oh,Oh,Oh,,, that would make us think twice
