Stop thief!

The content on our blog (and lots of others) is currently being "stolen" by a site called www.elearning-source.com. What they seem to do is harvest content from other sources, run it through a text mangler and reprint it on their site giving no credit to the original authors. This has an unfortunate side effect of making our posts read very badly. (Some might argue that this is actually an improvement!)

We've asked them to stop but they have ignored us, so we're looking into more interesting ways of resolving this situation...

If you're reading this on www.elearning-source.com, come over to http://physics-elearning.blogspot.com and read our blog in its full glory.

Cyber theft has become a common concern in modern times, thanks to various taxt mangler softwares. The site should be notified because of its plagiarism. I am a college sophomore with a dual major in Physics and Mathematics @ University of California, Santa Barbara. By the way, i came across these excellent flash cards. Its also a great initiative by the FunnelBrain team. Amazing!!!

The first step you should take to stop thief is to limit the words in feed to 20 (or somewhere near) so that automatic feed posts will not be able to fetch the content in full and would be forced to link back to your site. This will be an added advantage to you in popularizing the site.
