At the time of this post there are 87 answers to the meta question: Report sites that use SE content without following attribution rules here. The sheer volume of answers makes it impossible to quickly discern if a site has already been reported.
As an example I've run into two such sites in the last week and in one instance was able to identify that the site had already been reported. In the other I was unable to do so and posted a link to the infringing site. A few minutes later I began receiving down votes for duplicative reporting. My initial reaction was "fine I'll just block these sites from my Google searches and stop reporting."
Since I do not want to just pick up my toys and go home I'd like to suggest that a better mechanism for reporting content reuse violations needs to be created. In addition to the infringing site the reporting system could keep track of:
- number times a site has been reported
- current status of the report: suspended, take down request etc.
A badge could even be awarded for reporting a site.
Regardless of features having well-intentioned users search through a list of nearly 90 answers to see if a site is already reported is untenable and creates a frustrating user experience for those trying to do the right thing. I would also venture that having a definitive and manageable list of infringing sites would be useful for those at Stack Exchange who are trying to manage take down requests due to the lack of content attribution.
