EDIT 5. Feb. 2912: I decided to edit this post to make it clear that very likely, Stas Meshov is not a thief, but accidentally took the content of my blog post and re-published it under his name. I have stricken some words below, and added new text in italics and green color.
EDIT 3. Feb. 2012: see comment by someone claiming he is Stas Meshkov below. I have no idea if this person is Stas Meshkov, and if he/she is telling the truth.
stolen accidentally copied without permission my blog post on using reference managers. He has re-posted the post without permission, and logged it under “Admin”. As I am no admin on that blog, in fact have nothing to do with it, that’s a straight and simple copyright violation.
The copy-post has since been removed – thank you, Stas!
The title of the blog says “Stas Meshkov’s blog”. Well, Stas, you made quite a mistake here!
you’re a thief! A common thief – and a stupid one at that! Your blog is copied stolen together from many other places, and your blog site, running on WordPress software, has sent me pingbacks! Stoopid! LOL
stealing copying (by accident, he says, and I am willing to believe this) other people’s blog posts, Stas seems to be the same Stas Meshkov who is running a shady-looking (to me) business: SwiftDrops. Apparently, this business costs you between 47 and 67 bucks a month, and will do what exactly? Here’s the blurb portion of relevance:
“to find EXACTLY the type of domain you’re searching for”
that much money per months to search for expired domains? On the off chance that one might be available that happens to fit your business?
When you click the “Order” button, the site takes you straight to PayPal. No page showing what you are about to buy, no order confirmation, just right off to PayPal.
I tried to find out where this “firm” is registered. No luck on their pages. A google search got me nothing but their own pages in the first 200 hits. The server seems to be located in Houston, TX, at which point I stopped digging.
Now, what to make of this? Personally, I can’t help but say that this looks like a scam to me! Stay away!
I find this business venture suspect because, for example, I can’t find any physical contact address, no information where the company is registered, or in fact what the exact name is, who runs it, and so on. Stas, time to provide that information!
Stas offered to give me a free whirl of the program, many thanks – but no thanks! I have no use for an adandoned domain.
