Link Bait

My blog is now being scraped and used as link bait. I do not know if this is a compliment or not, but it shows the difference in visibility on myt blog since I started looking at this. My reputation monitor (on naymz.com) showed up a couple of blogs mentioning me. They were both named after celebrities. On closer inspection they were blogs being automatically created by scraping sites and they both automatically forwarded to a dating site. they had come accross my site, stolen the content and were using it to trap unwary people doing searches unrelated to dating. They then get paid per click for the useless traffic they are sending on to the dating site.
