    They are good at stretching the truth as well...

    Ixgames has been in the online gambling industry for more than ten years.
    Looks more like six years to me:

    They are DMOZ listed as well:

    Easy feisty no need for the open ya eyes shenanigans is there.

    ThePokerKeep you will see, if your eyes were open, is stating the fact that the website in question(not yours) claims to have been online 10yrs or so when in actual fact its more like 6yrs.

    Apology could well be in order I think.

    Alex,

    I think you mis-read what I wrote. I was not defending ixgames. In fact, I spent some of my morning digging up the info I posted in an effort to help you.

    The ixgames site has reproduced parts of a press release?

    I don't get why they just did'nt write the article they wanted.

    It's a nothing article either way.

    It looks like they have used the first paragraph of your press release and have gone on to write their own article. They certainly haven't lifted your entire article.

    That said, this does not make their actions right. If I were you and were annoyed at their actions, I would report it to the search engines. Although I might be right in thinking that PR's can be duplicated - your article after all is on a PR site.

    Regarding the sites DMOZ Listing. You have reported this on the resource zone, so no doubt a senior editor will respond to you there. But I very much doubt this affects one way or another the sites eligibility for being listed on DMOZ.

    I agree in part with your take on this, but, press releases are generally quoted verbatim and a back link is usually provided. This is more like pilfering/rewording an article and passing it off as their own.

    Hi

    Im editor in chief at ixgames and my responsibility that this doesn't happen.

    It is unacceptable, I have blocked the editor of the post and removed the post from the news area.

    This editor have not been with us for long and was not a hard decision.

    I see the resemblance at the beginning of the posts and the 2 identical titles, it's unquestionable.

    Copying a press release is okay but not changing the content, words, sentences or put your own links in it.

    The best thing one can do first, is to send a message to the contact of the offending website.

    A big apology!

    Whoever sent several death threats through our web forms, please stop, this is not a case where you want someone to die.

    Hello editor-ixgames. Please kindly remove this forum thread as well: Xhttp://forum.ixgames.com/discussion-forum/6521-avoid-online-gambling-scams.html


    My advice: Regularly check your employes and what they are doing (test the new writers not on your leading websites first).

    PLEASE REMOVE NOW!!!
    Been talking with admins this weekend.

    What were you trying to achieve when you wrote the thief statement on

    - 4 different communities.
    - signed up 2 times at our forum (youarescam, youarethief)
    - sent numerous messages through our contact forms

    When one of our editors (now gone and blocked), badly rewrote 4 sentences (dumb yes) of the beginning of your press release.

    I dont think you know what a thief or scammer is.

    I hope you take the responsibility and responds to your own posts at the communities you have started threads at with a resolved message.

    We have been nothing else than cooperative in this matter.

    The statement your press release have been stolen / they took my press release / ixgames are thiefs is far from the truth and correctly looked at is exaggerated misinformation or god forbid, disinformation.

    The portion of your press release that our editor merely rewrote contained 6 percent of your total release.

    Something else is behind this thread and the reasons of it together with the numerous statements found at other communities.

    First of all! I've tried to contact you before any actions.

    Secondly if you have a cheap employees who do things like this, how can you call yourself reputable?

    Theardly, don't try to tell me that I am a bad guy, your editors (or you just telling the stories) are the ones who did it, and I have a facts.

    And last, but not least: I've almost forgiven you... you want to carry on this?


    PS: I think he want to carry on: Look how he responded in google webmaster forums

    alex777tm has been spreading false information around the web...different communities about ixgames.com

    He is using words that dont explain what have happened and is either spreading misinformation or disinformation

    A new editor at ixgames had posted a bad news item with 4 sentences from his press release. (the editor is now blocked).

    The 4 sentences was approximately 6 percent of his press release.

    Ixgames is a well known gambling and poker portal online and not engaged in scrapping content whatsoever.

    You can read more about this at following websites:

    https://www.gpwa.org/forum/ixgames-t...187557/p2.html
    http://www.affiliateguarddog.com/for...ble-t2363.html
    http://www.resource-zone.com/forum/s...55831&p=277324

    ! You forgot to add http://www.casinoaffiliateprograms.c...-copycats.html to that list.

    It is obvious what Alex is trying to do

    Imagine 4 sentences in 1 post during 6 years of online presence and news publishing and all this drama


    *******
    I hope you take the responsibility and responds to your own posts at the communities you have started threads at with a resolved message.
    Actually I was about to do it, but now I've changed my mind.

    Your contact messages was received by the email client 2010-03-05 15:00

    Did you want an instant message back ?

    Your posts at google webmaster forums, resource-zone.com (dmoz support forums) GPWA.org and affiliateguarddog.com were all posted 5th march.

    You didnt give much time there and with that background your posts are irresponsible.

    The post on google was not meant to be hidden, we have no problem you show it to the GPWA community.

    So following statements:

    Theardly, don't try to tell me that I am a bad guy, your editors (or you just telling the stories) are the ones who did it, and I have a facts.
    First, you pretty much contacted us and posted on the forums at the same time.

    Secondly, this has nothing to do with cheap employers and nowhere does it say so. It is just made up by you.

    Third, you say you have the facts but you dont write and post according to.

    A really really dumb editor and blog poster took 4 sentences from one of your press releases and posted it at our blog.

    What sort of mature reply is that, on this:

    This is not a one-man operation and in all operations that involves multiple people/workers mistakes are done.

    What is the most important thing in that statement ?

    When a mistake is done!

    Talk with the public and fix the issues as soon as possible.

    That's what's been done here.

    I believe as representing ixgames there's not much more to do here at GPWA.org.

    I though it was fixed before the post #14 ( https://www.gpwa.org/forum/586602-post14.html ).

    Now, I think the best thing you can do to fix it, is to post an original PR on your blog or; post an apologies to the editors of GamblingIn.co.uk on your forum.
