    dbforums threads copied!!

    dear iNet

    please have a look at this --

    http://www.omgili.com/omgili.search?q=dbforums

    clicking on one of the links takes you to the dbforums thread

    however, click on the "more..." link and you will see that they have stored/indexed the entire thread text

    probably purpose: to appear in search engine results, and to serve their own ads when someone clicks through to them

    please ask your lawyers to send a cease & desist

    thanks

    .... I think they have gone further than that

    ..try doign a search

    perhaps Inet could as part of the discussions find out how these guys can get a search that...
    1) works
    2) is pretty quick
    3) seems to return reasonable results
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Going to go after Google too? I'm pretty sure that they actually do the same thing under the covers.

    google does not display the threads and superimpose their own links to competing ads right in the text
