LIANE MEMBIS ::: Burning MORE Bridges

Background: Dave Lucas: Liberette's Liane Membis #limembo ::: Burning Bridges and Dave Lucas: Liane Membis #limembo ::: Liberette?


She's been called a liar and a thief - she's already burned a few bridges - Liane Membis is now backing away from the online magazine based on design and content that was allegedly stolen from Liberette UK!

This just in: Blogger Libbyx said...

Check out the www.liberettemag.com , it's now calleed "bauce" and the twitter account has shut down too.
Nice work Dave. Best Wishes, Liberette UK

Her FACEBOOK page is gone as well ...
Here's how Ms. Membis' Liberette website looks at 8:30pm Sunday July 1 - notice she neglected to "wash off" one reference to her LiberetteMag! (See how the online mag looked a few days ago by clicking right here!)

  1. Dave -

    Young people these days have grown up with the belief that everything is "free" and content is low-hanging fruit. I'm sure this Membis woman had no concept that what she was doing was "wrong" wither when she made up articles for the press or when she copied directly from an established website.

    Look at all of the "music sampling" and direct copying of text published on the internet.

    Her only fault was that she got caught by jealous people with time on their hands. So what if she embellished her news? Is it really that awful that she used another website as a model for her own? I would be thrilled if someone copied my site!

  4. The comment above links to an open letter to Ms. Membis from an award-winning journalist.

    Please identify yourself properly when leaving a comment, or just be "anonymous" if you must!

    Thanks!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
