    Default Is it another group?

    hello guys,
    i was surfing thru web and found this page

    http://c.1asphost.com/kcpricha/badfo...p?TID=322&PN=1

    to my surprise, this forum had all the members same as our group. At first, I thought that it might be some translated page of our forum but it looked a lot different.

    what forum is that?

    Hmm, i didnt look far up enough, they did provide the link to the Badmintonforum thread. Look like the whole site is composed from content taken from other sites. I see lots of contents taken from ashaway usa which they did provided the links.

    mmm.

    See this at the bottom of each page on this site? That bloke over there doesn't realise what he / she is doing. I guess it's all up to Kwun if he wants to take action or not. Maybe you guys also, since your ideas have been used without consent.

    It does seem like they just straight downloaded the thread. But it seems to be a one time affair, as seen by the number of post made by kwun on that page (5970). The do put a link to the thread too.

    It looks very suspicious nevertheless. We should all keep an eye on this site in the near future.
