Annoying spammer

OK, this is annoying. Someone is copying my blog at crazyfactor.com. That’s annoying enough. But his tools is pinging back blogs I link to. Look at Shelley Powers’ blog’s comments (I’ll bet that Shelley removes the double trackback soon, but it was there at 7:15 p.m.) My post is linked there twice. Once from me. Once from the annoying jerk at crazyfactor.

  1. As much as you (and I and a lot of other people) hate them, perhaps this could be a good reason to go to partial text feeds. Although I suppose it’s better in the long run to get to the bottom of this.

    Some careful snooping around points to an Elliot Back, student at Cornell, discovered by following the link in the by-lines of each post (“Original post by Robert Scoble and software by Elliott Back”)

    I don’t necessarily think he means any wrongdoing since he’s got enough of an online presence linked from the site, so maybe an email (from a disposable address to be safe) could do the trick.

  3. Most of the posts end with “Software with Elliott Back”. Ironically, the footer on elliottback.com has this text – “Dont Steal!”

  5. When this happens to me,
    I first notify Google,
    then whoever else is
    currently keeping track
    of who shouldn’t be
    returned in searches.

    No doubt about it,
    you should report to:
    http://www.google.com/contact/spamreport.html
    If you can find one
    of the exact
    problems they mention, fine.

    Otherwise, your
    copyright is being
    abused. And at
    least once that’s been
    enough for them.

    Then there’s:
    http://www.google.com/Top/Computers/Internet/Abuse/

    But this all takes so much time,
    doesn’t it?

    Sorry.

    ‘sup!

  7. Call your attorney Scoble. I would sue if I were you. Isn’t this copyrighted material?

    Sue the obsessive freak for exactly .$01 more than it costs to take him to court, just to teach him a lesson! And let the judge know that the $.01 covers the cost of your anguish.
