“copyright” and QuestionHub harvesting questions from SO

Basically, my question which I posted at SO is also displayed at QuestionHub .

I'd like to know, why this was done and who did it.

All content is licensed via CC-Wiki and, as such, can be included in other works (like that web site) as long as they correctly attribute it to SO and you:

  • Visually indicate that the content is from Stack Overflow, Meta Stack Overflow, Server Fault, or Super User in some way. It doesn’t have to be obnoxious; a discreet text blurb is fine. Check, sort of, shows ServerFault when the question is from SO

  • Hyperlink directly to the original question on the source site (e.g., https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12345) Check

  • Show the author names for every question and answer Check

  • Hyperlink each author name directly back to their user profile page on the source site (e.g., https://stackoverflow.com/users/12345/username) Check

    miraculously, they do actually follow the attribution requirements! huzzah! Commented Aug 17, 2010 at 12:29
  • The only thing that is questionable is the link to the author, it's almost the same color as the background.

  • @Holyvier: But they do also have a link on the avatar. Commented Aug 17, 2010 at 12:45
  • @Bobby The avatar links to the question on the same site.
