I apologize if this is off-topic here. Such reports perhaps should be made elsewhere (see below), and one can find posts of this nature being closed as duplicates on StackExchange network-wide meta. In other words, it seems there's not much point in making a post about it over there.
At the same time, MathOverflow being a unique site with special agreement with the SE network, I imagine some users here might have an interest in this.BTW, I'm not cross-posting.
I just stumbled upon a site that seems to be ripping off the complete content of a good number of sites of StackExchange without proper attribution (as far as I can tell).
In particular, pertaining to MathOverflow (renamed as category "mathematician"), for example, this page about strange measure comes from this, and this regarding classification of surfaces is this.
I just reported this via the official channel following the instructions here.
However, while I was filling out the form, it occurred to me that I actually have already reported this exact same site
tutel.me like 2 or 3 years ago.
Back then, if I recall correctly, there was an automatic one-time message (webpage after the submission) saying to the effect of "... thanks for reporting, but you will not receive any follow-up due to legal reasons, and this kind of process takes a long time."
Now 2 years later, this
tutel.me still stands, so either
- It is not a rip-off (and I'm mistaken)
- There's no real legal recourse (and one should move on)
- The process is still on-going
- My previous report didn't go through
This time around, I got an automatic reply email (a "ticket"). Nonetheless, I have no clue if the report I just made actually went through. Namely, it is the 4th possibility that both last time and this time that somehow my reports weren't submitted correctly.
tutel.me site a rip-off? If it is, how can I be certain that my report(s) actually went through? (I've encountered before Stack Overflow "official" pages that are outdated or just dysfunct for no apparent reasons)
It's not clear to me whether the disarray in recent years (esp. since last October) makes this issue (content rip-off) less relevant or more relevant to the community.
