Also, do you guys (especially the web savvy ones) know how I can prevent this kind of theft?

What a looser. If he is so keen on sharing such perf figures, how about getting some equipment for himself and then testing the bikes and then sharing the figures, instead of being a copy cat.

@Rearset: If you are going to show the contents on net, expect them to get copied. Depends on how you show them, will decide the difficulty level to copy.

Oh and the Blog is flagged :-)

There is this piece of javascript you can use to prevent text highlighting... and you cant copy what you cant highlight...

take a look here:

Cheers!

p.s. It'll be pretty annoying if i cant highlight text... I have an irritating habit of reading text and highlighting it randomly... :p

Hmmmm Sad I say. But thats the way it is rearset. I have images which I have painfully clicked all over the net playing lead images for various orkut communities. Other mouthshut articles and stuff.

Well there is nothing one can do. I guess the best thing is that people can see through such f***heads mate! Now you know why we seal and lock every page of the emag? Hehehe

How about this -
* you go on a group ride
* and write a trip log & post in the blog
* a fellow rider, changes your name to his in the post
* and publishes it as his own!

it happened to me...

and btw flagged this blog...
