Again How To- Stolen Instructables Content

Again How To

Hi all,  not sure if this is really the correct place to be raising this (and can’t seem to find it mentioned elsewhere), but a new website called again how to has appeared aggregating content and reposting on their site, along the lines of ehow. It does appear to be pulling a hell of a lot of Instructables up on it, as well as off peoples personal sites (how I have picked up). I hope the Instructables legal
team can have a look at this.

A link would be useful...
Oh, wait, I found it. I wouldn't worry about the site, it's just some robot sucking in content in a rather incompetent manner.

For instance, the first Instructables content I found was this:

http://againhowto.com/How-to-make-star-trek-props/P.A.D.D-from-star-trek-voyager

The text it stole from the site is at the bottom of this comment.

If a reader ended up there, they would quickly tire of such rubbish, and follow the link they give.

VideoVideo

Share your how-to video. You'll need your embed code from a video site such as YouTube.
The site looks like Facebook's timelines. Maybe they even stole the code from Facebook to create their site.
If they stole anything from Facebook, I can't imagine Facebook would wait very long before stopping them.
