a splog is scraping wordpress art blogs

  1. Is there a way to stop a splog from scraping various art blogs on WordPress.com? Could it's IP be blocked globally? This is the splog in question:

    http://drawing.unix-fu.org/

    This splog seems to only be scraping wordpress.com Arts related blogs. All the links back to the original authors blogs are misspelled. They have no contact info.

    thanks

  2. a quick search would have shown there are plenty of threads about blog scraping. one such thread:

  3. Thank you sulz. In my haste I did not search.
    I will read them and add over there hence marking this topic resolved.

  4. The whole unix.fu network are scrapers; some people here have managed to contact the owner, who asserts that anyone publishing an RSS feed is giving permission to republish, which, as we all know, is a lie.

    But those people have not provided the other victims with that contact email, nor with the email for his host. Let's hope they do so soon.
