302 Redirect and duplicate content

subject revisited

I tried searching for help on 302 hijack issues and most threads were from 2005.

Is there a simple and quick fix when another site links to you using a 302 redirect and their redirect script ranks higher in Google than your own page? My site is new and it may be suffering from a duplicate content penalty due to this.

The page in question is a sub page (not main index) and I could use robots.txt to disallow it as I don't need it to be indexed. Will it help?

Unfortunately, just recently, cross-domain 302 troubles do seem to be on the rise on Google. And yes, I love to see them get this one nailed down - it's been trouble off and on for a long time. But why would you remove your page completely? Surely that's just surrender of the keyword ranking you do have.
