There is a Splog out there, using a bot to scrape content from my site (et al.) and post it randomly as its own. This is also known as stealing. If you are reading this on any domain other than, then you are reading stolen content on a splog. I’m not going to link to the splog, because that just makes the splog appear legitimate and we don’t want to do that. Splogging and blog scraping is apparently a growing problem in the blog-o-sphere and there really isn’t a lot we can do about it. I am going to file a DMCA notice with the splog’s host and hopefully they will take the splog down. I know there are other knit blogs that have been scraped by this splog and I encourage all of them to file a DMCA notice as well.
