My $0.02: If I provided the content for free, never charged for the
content, never intended to charge for the content, and someone else
copies the content and puts it online with all authorship notices
intact, I don't consider that stealing. If anything, I consider it good
archival practice and a bit of flattery.
If this were a commercial work then I would obviously see it
differently. But you'll excuse me if I'm having trouble seeing it from
your perspective, as someone who has made many personal works available
for free under various licenses (opencontent, creative commons, public
domain, commercial use only).
