Bad guys copied all of JavaRanch and published it as their own site and put up google banners.

Google has a form to fill out for that sort of thing. So I did.

Yesterday I got an email from google saying that they bad guys took one thread down, so they consider the matter closed.

I whined about it on reddit and ... now everything is fixed!

It was pretty awesome! I am very grateful!

So, I hereby declare that November 12 is reddit day on CodeRanch.

Hopefully we can get a reddit/moose hybrid image to run that day.

JavaRanch is one of my favorite sites and I couldn't believe when you posted that someone has ripped the site. There are so many heroes in the active staff list of your site who put a lot of efforts.

It is such a famous site for me that I think once you file a complaint at Google they should be easily able to identify who is fake and take action.

Anyways I'm happy that the reddit guys have helped.
