I'm really sorry that I'm irritating Raeford "University". Or not.

Clearly I have seriously irritated them. I received a standard email from Google this morning saying that:
"Blogger has been notified, according to the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), that certain content in your blog is alleged to infringe upon the copyrights of others.
This means that your post - and any images, links or other content - has not vanished. You may edit the post to remove the offending content and republish, at which point the post in question will be visible to your readers again."
I should stress that I don't have a problem with this warning from Google. People shouldn't breach other people's intellectual property and if you breach MY intellectual property I'll smack you down. I have in the past when "reporters" have taken material from this blog and either used it as their own or have misquoted it.

However this time it's clearly revenge. The post they objected to is this one in which I reported the online conversation I had with someone from "Raeford University" which is yet another fake establishment that sells fake degrees. My "crime" was to post a copy of their logo in the blog post but because I've hurt their feelings I've now removed the image.

So here goes. A heartfelt apology to Raeford "University".

Sorry for hurting your rather sensitive feelings but have you considered the feelings of people who get real degrees the hard way rather than cheating and getting them from you? They're the ones I'm really sorry for.
