Reporting Spam Blogs?

Oct - 29 - 2007

Can someone tell me how to report a spam blog to a registrar? I have one that keeps stealing my posts and crediting them to others – I want to report them, but I’m not sure what the steps are.

5 Responses so far.

    I have no ideas, but if you get some, I hope you’ll report them here!

    I did a WhoIs search, but didn’t see host contact info – I know others have said that they have contacted hosting providers to get sites shut down .. I just don’t know how to do this.

  3. Jeff says:

    You have to find the internet service provider and have them shut down. You will need to find their ip, which will be tricky. There is no over-arching authority like the do not call list. It is up to the internet service provider to make sure what they are doing is kosher.

  4. Jeff says:

    One more thing: the only way to prevent this yourself is to either truncate your posts, provide just a header post so people using a reader will click through to your post, or to just chalk it up to the “they suck” part of life.

    Thanks Jeff! I don’t mind removing spam posts and such, it’s just that I’ve had the same one over and over recently, and that’s what I want to prevent. I did some altering of my blacklist – we’ll see if that works for now.
