    Hey everyone, I recently got a couple of comments on one of my word press blog websites I own. The owner of a blog I am scraping content off with wp-o-matic basically said 2 things.

    1. Stop scraping full post content & make sure I give him/her credit for each post.

    Ok first of all ...There are links back to his website all over my posts so how is that not giving him credit? second of all what good would a half post scrape do me? :eek:

    2. After that comment they left me another one saying how they would contact Host gator about my activities.

    I'm sure many of you have blogs you scrape full content from. Have any of you ever gotten comments like this? And can that person really do anything about it?

    I am doing them a favor by posting that stuff on my website if it gets lots of traffic. More traffic for me = more links going back their blog and more potential readers/buyers for them.

    What do you guys think?

    Just reply back and tell them you are providing their backlinks in the posts you have on your site. The will probably be fine if that is all they are asking of you.
