To the point about participation and readership... It probably didn't help the Valentine's contest, to have Lit roll out a new user interface right at the start.
Thank you all for the posts about my past contest support threads.
Plagiarism? Unfortunately that is the downside of increased visibility. After nearly 15 years of posting stories on Literotica my stories appear on dubious sites all over the world. Why a bot-infested Japanese Anal Fisting Teenager site wants my stories? I don't know but they have copied some including 'copyright oggbashan'.
Posting stories on Literotica or anywhere visible on the internet means they WILL be stolen. Unfortunately we cannot prevent that. All we can do is draw the website owner's attention to the theft. I did that for yet another theft of multiple oggbashan stories this week. Five days later the stories are still there and the website owner hasn't responded.
