CALL TO ACTION: Fake Facebook Group rips off Cousin Russ' Blog

UPDATE: THANK YOU FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE. THE MATTER HAS BEEN RESOLVED

DearREADERS,
There is a new Facebook Group set up by Billy Huffman here https://www.facebook.com/groups/612548515558308/ that is a rip off of Cousin Russ Worthington's work. Administrator Billy Huffman has gone so far as to use for his banner (Facebook calls it a Group Photo) Russ' screen shot directly from his FTMUser blog post located here: http://ftmuser.blogspot.com/…/ftm2014-plan-workspace-overvi…

This isn't about competition, it's about unauthorized use of another person's work. Competent genealogists just don't do this sort of thing.
