Report sites that use SE content without following attribution rules here

I am not sure if this belongs here: Report sites that use Stack Exchange content without following attribution rules here but I just found a version of my question: Why does $($) crash my page? with it's answers, but with different names???

http://www.advancesharp.com/Questions/7587/why-does-crash-my-page

Does that mean it is a legit site? Or just fancy scraping that they hid with name changes?


Sidebar:

I found the user who owns the site: https://stackoverflow.com/users/586227/ali-adravi

And here is his question on how to scrape the content from Stack Overflow: https://stackoverflow.com/q/3448821/561731

    They copy a lot of questions/answers by changing the name of the posters. Also, they change the date (for example, your question was 2 months before on advancesharp). Jun 18 '12 at 14:36
  • It definitely belongs in Report sites that use SE content without following attribution rules here I'd say; copying and obscuring the content to avoid detection. Jun 18 '12 at 14:38
  • Why wouldn't it belong on the linked question? It's exactly an example of what's mentioned in the title (using SE content without proper attribution). Jun 18 '12 at 14:40
  • @jadarnel27 because it is more obscured. so they are saying (as Florian states) we asked it first, you are copying us

  • @amanaPlanaCAnalPAnaMA: So they are being more devious about it, making them more guilty. Report them in the report thread with that information. Jun 18 '12 at 14:43
  • Meh. Sounds like "He said, she said", which would ultimately be up to lawyers to determine who is telling the truth. Jun 18 '12 at 14:43
