Sites that copy your blog content:

http://export contacts . blogspot. com/ - Especially egregious. No contact info whatsoever on this ad laden site that's geared for users to 'accidentally' click ads.

UPDATE 4/11/2012 - Google has taken the site down. Thanks Google!
UPDATE 4/12/2012 - The site is back up. There's now an email address which I emailed. Bounced back. Everything about this site is sleazy.
