I hear ya Bewenched, I just did the same last weekend with 20 or so verbatim copies myself. The sites trying to pretend to be my site were removed but the aggregating sites that show my site AND someone else's were denied. How they ranked with my content didn't matter one bit. It seems that scraping is somewhat protected if done in bulk which isn't surprising since that's essentially what Google does too.
As for RSS feeds, it's best not to have any for the majority of sites. You can then use logs to catch scrapers since they'll be the ones hitting up your pages fast and furious. Oh, and if anyone finds of a way to completely disable feeds in wordpress(as in OFF, not hidden) let me know! Wordpress has built in heavy workarounds for most disabling attempts.
