I posted about BestGreenWebHostingDeal stealing my content. I have tried to contact the owner of the site, but no response.
Next step I contacted the web hosting company and they asked for the following information. As part of what they ask for below I plan on using this post as example of how BestGreenWebHostingDeal copies my content as it will be only a matter of minutes before their content bot scrapes my site and posts this up. And here is the copy of my site http://www.bestgreenwebhostingdeal.com/2070/next-step-in-stopping-a-content-farm-from-stealing-content-contacting-web-hoster/
