Yet another thieving site. I submitted a guitar tab for a song called From Under the Dust by Letters to Cleo to UG a while back and whaddaya know, now it's on songsterr. It makes me wonder if there's any guitar or bass site which DOESN'T have a bunch of skeevy little trolls sniffing around for tabs to steal from other sites…

This website? I dunno, I've seen stuff from UG on here and Songsterr. I've seen so many copied guitar tabs it's not even funny. I don't know why people have to feel like they can go and steal. That's technically a crime. Right?

Exactly, which is why all my tabs are originals, created by me, by sitting my big ass down and transcribing a song note for note as accurately as I can. I don't steal others' tabs and pass them off as my own, so naturally I get bent out of shape when someone does it to me. Punk ass bitches…

Well if your tab is 100% correct, I guess it is possible that someone simply wrote the tab without knowing it was already on a different site
Not taking sides or anything, but aren't you getting a bit too carried away ?
It isn't cool to steal tabs but it could be a mistake.

I use a very specific format when writing my tabs, from the legend, to the spacing, to the way I stack staffs, to performance notes I include. And it's an exact duplicate, meaning they copied everything except the “tabbed by LoudLon” part and submitted it there.

Like I said: punk ass bitches.

In that case, even though I don't write any tabs yet, I kinda know how you feel. Report the tab and send them (or him/her) a message telling them to add that “tabbed by Loudlon”.

Well they should at least ask for permission

Occasionally I will come across a tab with a minor, though obvious, error; like one missing note. When I go to the same song on a second site, I find the exact same error. Obvious theft ( a third site might have the correct tab - no missing note).
