The edits could have at least tried to parse intent instead of just copy-pasting from Google. – random Aug 14 '09 at 1:55

That clone has been around for a few months. Although it initially used the CSS from Stack Overflow, it has subsequently been replaced and no longer represents copyright infringement.

Since they don't run our code and don't have any of our content, there's very little that needs to be "done" about them.
