Blocking wp-o-matic (4 posts)

    So,

    I'm sure I can't be the only one frustrated to see blogs duplicating all of my posts automatically via the wp-o-matic plugin.

    Is there anything I can do to block them?

    Thanks,
    Cary

    One way is by using plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-feed-copyright/ as well as setting feeds to show excerpts not full article. While wp-o-matic is free and up to 2.6 only, there are other premium plugins which sploggers use that are just plain irritating.

    I really hate the idea of going back to partial feeds, but I also hate chasing these guys down.

    I suppose I could give it a try and see how it effects things on my blog.

    Thanks for the plugin suggestion. I'm not sure it would stop anyone from the stealing, but at least I'd get a link back. Hmmm.

    Also check out a very recent post I just read about stopping scrappers/spammers for extra measure :-)

    I say whatever works :-)
