Not sure Meta is the right place for this, but I have stumbled upon https://salesforce.forumming.com/ which obviously copies posts from SFSE, alters the posters' names, and shows no references to SFSE whatsoever. Few examples:

Example 1 coming from: What are "Super Messages" with respect to Marketing cloud?

Example 2 coming from: SSJS Split String

I thought this might be worth taking a look at (and stopping).

    Good catch. And it is bigger than SFSE - they have "unix.forumming" and others, and when I randomly chose a question on Unix, I (unsurprisingly) found the same as an original Unix & Linux Stack Exchange question. So it seems they are scraping quite a number of Stack Exchange sites.

  • Similar discussion here. TLDR, it likely is a violation based on lack of attribution, but you would (probably) need to file your own takedown requetss.

  • In a link from a link from the discussion that Adrian posted is this: stackoverflow.blog/2009/06/25/attribution-required . If that is still in effect, the the site that Lukas posted is violating 4 out of 4 attribution requirements. So I would think/hope that SE does something about it on a "meta" level.

    I have sent an adapted Standard license violation letter to the website owner, as well as the GoDaddy abuse email address. Not saying this is expected to have any effect, but worth trying. Commented Nov 12, 2021 at 8:18
  • This happens often. My answers often appear in books, youtube videos, etc without any attribution. But I don't have the time nor inclination to try and hunt all of them down. Hopefully someday someone will put a stop to this.
