makemetop, people like that just makememad!~ :mad:
I knew someone else who got their page jacked...first he contacted the owner directly, who promptly told him to go to h***! His next move was to contact their affiliate sponsors and host provider. Shortly thereafter the page was removed/changed...

On further checking - and information from another forum where I asked the same question, this is a huge code theft with many, many high ranking sites having their index or other pages taken - including Danny S's SEW, [clixplus.com] Yahoo! [clixplus.com] and (my favorite) Google's add URL page [clixplus.com].
I also found several home pages from members of these fora - complete with Titles and Company Names by running XENU. It is scary stuff.

Wow, those guys had thousands of pages they grabbed, must have been an automated grab-the-top-ranking-pages-per-engine-and-copy type set up.

Meet Chris Robinson [visionkl.com], president of Clixplus.com Ltd. Hong Kong.
whole page [visionkl.com].
Btw, ALL their pages are nuked from Google. Hope you feel better...

Chris moves in exalted circles! I sent Google the clixplus copy of Google's add URL page and got a reply that they would take 'appropriate action'. Sunday they had nearly 2K pages on Google and today - zip! Several other people also took action against them so I think that Mr. Robinson may be reconsidering his company's SEO strategy :)
Certainly all the pages which were 'jacked that I found have been replaced with straight redirects - so I think their little 'experiment' is over.
Thanks to all the people who helped stamp this out so quickly.

All goes to show that entry to the glitterati is paved with thievery!

Although not removed from the db, they are now banned by Ink.
