The Head Lemur has *so* had it with a particular splogger that he decided to take extreme yet highly appropriate action to deal with him....
And mangaged to get him shut him down...
Interestingly, the splogger responded and basically explained he was trying to set up an aggregator and had sent emails to all of the people he wanted to aggregate. I'm not sure I totally buy it, esp. considering the folks who've said they never received email from the guy (see THL's post for the names).
THL's final words on the matter are here Lemur found the guy, they have exchanged emails--the guy will not use THL's content.
The way the splogger-in-question was aggregating was a bit different from when I first found Topix.net aggregating my content. There was no "contrubted by" line, which gives the impression that permission was given and the content was contributed. Topix looked like an aggregator and only grabbed part of my feed, according to a certain search criteria, so it was very clear it was only an aggregator.
However, I know there are other splogs that have no contact info and are probably super-hard to track down. If any of y'all are interested in finding who's been splogging you, do an IceRocket.com blogsearch of your url. IR seems to find sploggers much quicker/better than Technorati.
What we do next, though, I have no idea....
This is a great outcome, but doesn't totally solve the problem of splogs that have no contact information.
