I found ALL of the posts from the mortgage forum (including my own) on another site. I just don't get the point of doing that.
Well that's interesting, thank you for bringing it up.
I'm not certain it's a problem given it's a public forum, but I'll raise the question anyway with the site admins.
It does look fishy. I'm actually glad our user names don't show up. I only took a quick look, but it seems like only the initial post, not the replies, are being fed to that board.
With each of the threads being surrounded by ads and ad links maybe it is trying to generate click throughs...never seen an actual board with that many ads and ad links.
It does actually have some if not all of the replies in there, basically prefaced with a * in the message itself.
SO10 - I agree, the whole thing appears to be somewhat spurious when it comes to building a forum.
Edit: looks like they're scraping the Credit Cards forum as well.
