    Exclamation Something Strange Happening to my CA Threads...

    Not sure where else to post this as I'm also having problems sending PM's. They're not showing up in my sent messages folder so I'm posting a thread in here in the hopes of getting a response.

    I might be going mad but...

    I was checking my website listings on Google recently and came across these links to two threads I've got up here on CA. Whats odd is, they look like they've been posted by strangers on different forums. I didn't post them and I'm not a member of either of those other forums. Here's the links -

    Is it possible that CA members' work/threads are being stolen by other sites? If I'm wrong and this is normal, no worries, I'll go away with a red face. But I don't know. Something just seems off about it, and there are a lot of professional artists posting on CA. I'd hate to see their hard work being stolen/plagiarised without their knowledge.

    They're spam sites that harvest posts from forums in order to camouflage themselves to search engines.

    Ah, that makes sense. I guess there's no way to stop them doing it?
