A spam blog on WordPress republished one of my posts

  1. I had a pingback from this site:

    http://yvyrodonir.wordpress.com/2012/09/10/the-creative-cat-poetry-for-pet-memorial-sunday/

    Even though The Creative Cat is on WordPress.org, I still have my original WordPress,com site up, plus a number of other blogs. The site that published my post is on WordPress.com. Can you help me with this?
    Blog url: http://portraitsofanimals.wordpress.com/

  2. Hi there,
    See here please > content theft what to do > http://en.support.wordpress.com/content-theft-what-to-do/

  3. Timethief, thanks so much--there are three more this morning! They are all WordPress.com blogs, and aside from going after the blog owners what can I do to stop this trend? There is apparently something in the post that is triggering this for these spam blogs. I can't take this post down, and it would be difficult to move it as well since many have read it and are linked to it. I am just as concerned about stopping this trend as going after these blog owners. What would be the best action to take?

    The thing is, my blog is not on WordPress.com, though I use the WordPress platform self-hosted. This content isn't posted on my legacy blog on WordPress.com, which I've left up for others who have links to that (the links didn't transfer correctly or consistently when I moved).
