    So I found this in my surfing...

    hxxp://www.shopathomecom.com/

    It's basically a pretty complete clone of BHW. What would the point of this be? I don't get it.

    He may change the logo someday, add adverts, get paid traffic, and then easy profit.

    There are lots of BHW clones that pop up every now and then. Some are pretty intricate : they change the usernames but you can find the stuff we post here under different authors.... I saw one clone where my posts were under some johnsomething

    Why do they do it? They switch the ads provider and when they manage to get lots of pages indexed, they get some pretty hefty traffic.

    It's churn 'n burn, they usually last a couple weeks max.

    It's interesting how it updates itself with all the content from here..

    There's some good money in this..

    I don't think they can clone content from JrVIP section. If they can then that's a serious issue.

    He will be someone with very few posts, because it must take him ages to type out every post on BHW on his cloned version.

    I can't see it being there long. Also, I'm sure I don't have to say, but don't be THAT guy and try and login*... Also, OP, how did you find the site?
