Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

While searching for answers to my question I came across http://www.www.dektak.com/

The particular page is a scrape of this question but without the required attribution and it looks like this:

picture of dektak stealing Stack Exchange content and name

Is this OK with Stack Exchange? Is there anything that can be done?

@MartijnPieters This is a bit more than using content, they are using the network's name as well... – Yannis Jul 13 '12 at 10:50
    
@YannisRizos: all the more blatant, should still be reported in that thread, I think. – Martijn Pieters Jul 13 '12 at 10:53
    
@MartijnPieters Yes it should (if it's not already, there are already 55 answers there), but I think it also merits its own Meta q (won't be closing as a dupe). – Yannis Jul 13 '12 at 10:54
    
OK. I am adding it to that thread now. – Matt Ellen Jul 13 '12 at 10:55
    
"E-mail: info@example.com" - Is just one of the pieces of place-holder text on that page. – ChrisF Jul 13 '12 at 11:45
    
Abby is in charge of SE's "list of people to threaten." I've poked her about this post. I guess she's going to have a fun day. – Pops Jul 13 '12 at 14:57

I like how they have the extra "www". You know, just to be sure. – Adam Jul 13 '12 at 17:16
    
@AnnaLear: well, they're trying to save the web. – user7116 Jul 13 '12 at 18:36

Well, that's a jerk move!

I've added it to the list of sites that we smack periodically with our ATTRIBUTION, YO! hammer. Hope they have good helmets.
