    The last thread has gotten quite convoluted so I'm reposting some important information that I saw posted by Marisa Wright on that thread. Please note all bolding is my own.

    [In reply to people suggesting tweeting the site to make people more aware.]

    Think about it for a minute. How many people have ever heard of this site?  What will they do when you mention it, even if you say bad things?  Curiosity will win - they'll go and have a look.

    99% of the world has never heard of this site, so let's keep it that way.  On the internet, ANY publicity is worth having, even if it's bad - so don't feed this monster.

    Remember, this site will never get traffic due to people choosing to visit the site - they'll get traffic via the search engines, and most people don't even look at the name of the site when clicking on a link.  So telling people to avoid the site won't make a ha'porth of difference.

    The rule here is - don't get mad, get even.  The ONLY things that will work are filing a DMCA with Softlayer and filing a complaint through Google Webmaster Tools.

      And never post a FULL URL pointing to the site, or it'll help the site rank better in search results. Just do what WryLilt did here: identify it so that we can discuss it, without giving it backlink juice.

      (if you're trying to warn people about a copy of one of their hubs, you could break the URL at the beginning by putting a space between http and the colon.]

        If you have been following the other thread on this, you will see that the site has changed their URL....thus creating a "new" site. It is my way of thinking that the complaints filed will not apply to this new URL.  Any thoughts?

          The main site is still live.

          They simple have obscured their navigation links by preceding the url with a .

          Without the . the links work.

          At least the single one I peeked at on the front page which is of a hub published within the last 48 hours

    Bumping this thread so people notice it - thanks for doing this Wry!  People are still posting on the other threads without bothering to read, so let's hope they read this one.

      I can understand it's scary to have your work stolen for the first time, but many of them seem ready to just randomly run out and try any idea without thinking first!

    To everyone who had published hubs from March 15, 2012 to date!  Chances are, your hubs had been copied.  This thread tells you WHAT TO DO!
