Spam duplicate of WP Codex

  • codex.wordpress.org.vietphuong.info/Main_Page

    Maybe something for the WP Staff to take action.

    While spamblogs are already a real p.i.t.a., spam duplicates (that are even listed in Google before real Codex results) are just as bad!

  • This is really bad.
    The whole site at http://codex.wordpress.org.ush-net.info/ a copy of http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page

    Only ads are added.
    And a disclaimer with a link back to the original:

    We’ve been seeing a lot of these over in wp.com land pulling content via RSS feeds. Lots of fun.

    Seems like most have been hosted by keyweb.de in Germany or ev1 here in the US. Both of these are hosted by hetzner.de.

    I thought in Germany they have really strict copyright laws. Why would they be hosting it in Germany then?

    I was expecting that this was going to be another keyweb site which is why I wrote that. I was surprised to find that it wasn’t.
