Report sites that use SE content without following attribution rules here

I don't know if this site is somehow associated with Stack Overflow, but I found it today Googling some things and many if not all of its answers and questions are taken from Stack Overflow: http://tips4all.net/.

    They need more ads on that site to be viable/attractive – Mike B May 25 '12 at 20:06
  • Here's the WHOIS record: networksolutions.com/whois-search/tips4all.net . As you can see, it's registered to "nguyen huu hai" using all fake contact info. Their DNS registrar is actually in the US, though, so that's something. – Ernest Friedman-Hill May 25 '12 at 20:08
  • They don't even make any attempt at maintaining the actual author names. They're all completely fabricated linking to some random "user" on the site. – animuson May 25 '12 at 20:13

    @animuson LOL, looks like Jon Skeet's noone compared to Rajesh! 288532 answers provided, he must be some sort of demigod. The naiveness of the site makes me smile – Damien Pirsy May 25 '12 at 21:34
  • i really liked Rajesh's bio. not generic at all – jere May 25 '12 at 21:42

There are a few other meta questions about sites that scrape SO / SE content.

Valued Associate Abby keeps an eye on that and contacts the sites to get them to comply with our attribution requirements . Thanks for the heads up; we'll add it to our list and look into it. Please continue to report any other scrapers you find that are not properly attributing content to SO.

  • and that was just on the first 2 pages of google results... i just went 5-10 pages into the search and... dear lord... thanks for the info – jere May 25 '12 at 20:18
  • Oh, I think this is the first I've heard that it's actually someone's official job to keep tabs on that list and contact the sites. Yay for Abby! – Cody Gray May 26 '12 at 7:52
