- What do we do about mirror sites? 1 answer
About a month ago, I made this post.
However, I found out just now that my post is showing up verbatim in other sites.
I'm wondering what's up with that. I know for a fact that I did not make those posts in those other sites. In fact, I don't even have accounts with them or anything.
Are those sites simply mining other sites for content or something? Is this a case where StackExchange is providing the data in a way that they have access to (e.g. API access, etc), or is it simply that they're making regular HTTP requests and parsing the data themselves, etc?
I'm just wondering how my questions were somehow duplicated in those sites.
