Report sites that use SE content without following attribution rules here

While searching for answers to my question I came across http://www.www.dektak.com/

The particular page is a scrape of this question but without the required attribution and it looks like this:

picture of dektak stealing Stack Exchange content and name

Is this OK with Stack Exchange? Is there anything that can be done?

    @MartijnPieters This is a bit more than using content, they are using the network's name as well...

  • @YannisRizos: all the more blatant, should still be reported in that thread, I think. Jul 13, 2012 at 10:53
  • @MartijnPieters Yes it should (if it's not already, there are already 55 answers there), but I think it also merits its own Meta q (won't be closing as a dupe).

  • "E-mail: [email protected]" - Is just one of the pieces of place-holder text on that page.

  • Abby is in charge of SE's "list of people to threaten." I've poked her about this post. I guess she's going to have a fun day.

    I like how they have the extra "www". You know, just to be sure.

Well, that's a jerk move!

I've added it to the list of sites that we smack periodically with our ATTRIBUTION, YO! hammer. Hope they have good helmets.
