I've just found a question I asked here copied word for word on a site called "Treasure Gourd"

This site has a similar feel as stackoverflow. Is it a knockoff?

  • Probably a knock off. However I wouldn't worry about it unless they are copying Stack Exchange content without attribution. – ChrisF Jan 30 '12 at 11:42
  • 'Know someone who can answer?' Only no sharing, so not only will you have to know someone who can answer, but mess around with providing a link, or also call them to describe it to you, or use telepathy, or something else altogether magical to get it posted. – Grant Thomas Jan 30 '12 at 11:57

  • @JeffMercado looks like that does cover my question but I didn't see it when searching the meta. Can I vote to close my own question? – AidanO Jan 30 '12 at 15:19
  • @AidanO: I believe you can. As the owner of this question, you have the option to delete (but can't since it's upvoted) and close AFAIK. – Jeff Mercado Jan 30 '12 at 15:21
