Disturbing Internet Practice With Respect to Blogger/Blogspot 

I just wanted to point out to blog readers and bloggers who use Blogger/Blogspot that a religious website called Aarons Bible has apparently done its best to direct traffic to its site by creating mirror sites that mimic Blogger blogs' URLs. Aarons Bible's URL(s) are exactly the same as Blogger URLs except they deleted the "s" in "blogspot." If you mistakenly omit the "s" in "blogspot" from a Blogger URL, for example my URL (http://sheahotcorner.blogspot.com/) you will end up at http://sheahotcorner.blogpot.com/ and you will be treated to,
A mega-site of Bible, Christian and religious information & studies; including, audio and written KJV Bible, Bible helps & tools, churches, Doctrine, links, news, prayer, prophecy, sermons, spiritual warfare, statistics, and tracts. Features the Chronological 4 Gospels, Prayer Book, Prophecy Bible, and a photo tour of Israel.
Don't get me wrong, I'm down with JC as much as the next guy, but this form of cyber-piracy is sketchy at best and illegal at worst. If you find this as disturbing as I do contact Aarons Bible directly and tell them as much, which you can do by clicking here, and also contact Blogger by clicking here. If you so desire, feel free to point out that while cyber-piracy is not specifically mentioned in The Ten Commandments, a few of the Commandments indicate that the Big Guy Upstairs would not be too keen on their deceptive practices. For example, the Ten Commandments state that "thou shall not steal," "thou shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor," and the often overlooked, "thou shall not misuse domain names, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses domain names." Amen.
