    Does anyone know that someone is scraping content(just the titles) from BHW and posts it to the blog.

    The site is blackhatedge.info.

    It seems to be using the RSS for posts.

    Is this allowed.

    I think so, I mean, definitely someone on BHW could buck if they wanted to.
    It might be even a respectable member who wouldn't find any trouble at all.

    I;ve actually looked to see if bhw offered any rss, and I dont think they do, it may be pipes.

    Right enough you've posted on many old threads promoting this iblackhatseo site.

    There are websites that scrape BHW popping up all the time. There's no need to keep resurrecting old threads and, for some reason, mentioning the site's 1.8 million Alexa rank.

    It makes it look like you're promoting the site.

    If you aren't, then send the BHW support a message and let them know that there's another website scraping the forum.
