Is it legal to copy Stack Overflow questions and answers?
Report sites that use SE content without following attribution rules here

I have been searching for some answers and came across this post. Then I still had some questions left and continued my search on Google and I came across this post.

I do not understand here. Alright, that might be a repost to another website, but why is it dated a year later and written by totally different people? Where is the truth? Is that a hallucination? Or maybe StackOverflow is a hallucination, and you are not real people at all, and the real people are there at AdvanceSharp? Am I real then?

UPDATE:

You guys rock! :D Thanks for stabilizing me, I started getting into derealization already.

Maybe I'm getting old or something, but why does this "gimme teh codez" has 30 upvotes? –  Time Traveling Bobby Jul 3 '12 at 12:18
    
@UristMcBobby I guess that it is upvoted by many who step over the same problem. For me the resolution there does not work though :/ –  noncom Jul 3 '12 at 12:28

Seriously though, good catch. This looks like a scraper that violates the CC license.
