This question already has an answer here:
I like Stack Overflow. However, I found that some sites 'mirror' stuff from here, for example:
http://www.9nit.com/c-c-/opencv-imwrite-saving-complete-black-jpeg-37967.html http://fatalweb.com/question/change-cvfindcontours-to-4-connected-neighbors-from-8-connected-6951483.html http://www.rqna.net/qna/kvqnun-how-to-minimize-opencv-library-size.html http://www.questiondb.com/questions/7403455/how-do-you-set-up-opencv-with-qt-in-osx http://it.dbline.net/questions/tagged/contour?page=1&sort=active http://s7438.socode.info/question/5081280a4f1eba38a41a813d
They do not only post my questions and answers, they also post my name. I do not want to be connected (in a sense of Google results) to these website, their layouts are horrible, the domain names awful and, lastly, I don't see the point.
However, I do want to be connected to Stack Overflow.
Is there anything I can do? Is there an opinion Stack Overflow has regarding those websites?
I noticed a related post: What is hows.info?
But I could not open the duplicate.
Moreover, here one can report, but what is done with the report? Are the websites taken down somehow?
My solution For those who have the same questions and want to know how to be unggoogleable on Stack Exchange-mirrors:
First I removed my last name from all Stack Exchange accounts.
Then some of the mirrors simply update their pages and remove it immediately. For others, you have to e-mail and ask. This is a list of experiences I have per website that mirrored my name:

The e-mail template I use
Dear sir, madam,
Your website shows my name, NAME, namely on these pages:
LIST OF LINKS
Please remove my name from them.
Thank you in advance.
I also found this site, which states that a site cannot just mention your name without your consent:
