Zomgawsh Poster

This is somewhat bizarre, but one of my guild members recentlydiscovered that another person is attempting to copy our website. (Theperson's name looks vaguely familiar, but I have no idea why.)

Here is our Guildportal Homepage.

This is the stranger's.- What makes it more obvious he simply copy pasted our introductionsection was the fact that the link at the bottom that asks "Are You OneOf Them?" actually leads to our website rather then his own.

The forum set-up is also very close to ours - in fact, our raiding forum was called "Raiding and Instances" until a couple of weeks ago.

I'm not exactly sure what the creator is attempting to do, but if it becomessomething problematic in the future (such as him attempting to impersonate us in some sort of manner), is there anything I can do aboutit?  Or are we somewhat screwed?

[ Update: I discovered why his name was familiar.  He had attempted to gain member access to our forums, but Guildportal had an odd-posting bug at the time which prevented him from filling out an application on our forums.  He never bothered to try applying again. ]

You can set most things to non-viewable by guests. That could keep him from copying anything further.
