Touchy, been following it from the beginning & simply got a little fed up like others of reading all the bleating about how `wronged` you are. Get over it and develop some sort of niche for your business to make it stand out, rather than just moan about the competition & chuck silly threats about.

Oh sorry, I didn't realise you spoke on behalf of all the others. All the people (70+ posts) who replied to my post must have been so fed up they bothered to reply.
Oh are we talking about 'niche marketing'? " We fit boilers"? Wow what a niche - can't think of anyone else who does that.
I don't have any competition dick brain because I have a marketing strategy.
Anyway WTFAY? I've never seen a post from you before, so you are obviously a regular contributor.
One more brain cell & you could qualify as a pot plant.

To be honest, it was pretty 'whingey' on your part. You have only been able to point out 2 parts of the other site that were straight lifts from your site, I'm sure you can find more . . .
Notwithstanding which, the sites were very different in terms of structure and appearance, and accusations of 'word for word' copying is somewhat exaggerated when considered over comparison of the two whole websites
On the other hand. Fullflow never claimed to speak for ALL the others, just some of them; so stop accusing him of things he never claimed to be doing.
I think that statement made more sense in your head than it does on the page.
On the other hand, you seem to have found that Handyman365 is a really nice guy, and I'll have no hesitation in recommending him if anyone is looking for that sort of service in the North Kent area.

please don't get so upset by this. It's an annoyance, yes. Is it going to hurt you financially? I think you are a sound guy who's understandably wound up. Try to ignore it and get on with business (and life).

I followed the original thread until I was fed up of the whinging.
The follow-up might have been better ... but you've become offensive so I shan't read any more of your posts.
Yes, I know that you wom't care and that you might well be offensive to me in reply but I shan't see it and it will say more about you rather than me.
This post is to say that there probably ARE others who were fed up of the moaning and either stopped reading or couldn't be bothered to reply. I'm sure I'm not unique.

Thats a little offensive Mary don't you think?
I won't be offensive Mary - I anint bovvered.
Oh I think you are unique Mary. The post after all attracted a surprising number of people who were bovvered.

You are not unique in this respect, and I don't see what place whining about a commercial competitor has on uk.d-i-y.

You are ignoring the fact that (in this respect) Mary is not unique. We may be in a vocal minority, but there is nore than one person tired to the back teeth of hearing about your commercial vendettas.

At the moment you are giving the impression that he has at least one brain cell more than you. Knock it on the head and drop the constant bloody whining about your competition in Kent.
