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

Just got a notification that someone from a Wordpress site linked to an old article of mine. Upon investigation, I realized it was because a content scraper ripped off my StackOverflow question from here: Workaround to prevent Facebook "Like" cross-domain error?

and put it up here: http://techforumnetwork.com/techqns/workaround-to-prevent-facebook-like-cross-domain-error-2/

Although I know content scraping questions have been asked before (i.e.: Is developerquestion.com just a ripoff?), is the team actually monitoring this? TechForumNetwork.com obviously has failed the "attribution required" test. I do feel uncomfortable that my questions are being reposted with my username across the net without knowing the implications.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Stack Exchange only monitors scraping that does not follow the required attribution rules (/legal, sec.3). Such violators should be reported here.
