  • There are many sites out there that scrape forums.

    There's nothing we can do about it here. If you really want it removed, you'll need to reach out to the site who copied the thread.

  • Hi,

    www.nic.com is the controller of .com domains. On their site you can get the whois information (there is a direct link there).

    And it seems that there is some kind of company behind that - I doubt that you will have any chance to get your post removed.

    With kind regards,

  • Can you help me reaching to the site owner.

    As I am unable to locate him...

  • I see no contact details on the site. Check the WHOIS details of the domain, that's likely your only option.

  • If you live in U.S. you may want to file copyright claim to them with aid of cheap lawyer.

    By the TOS of this forum, you grant "Microsoft and its Affiliates the right to make, use, modify, distribute and otherwise commercialize the Submission in any way and for any purpose" and "By providing a Submission you warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to your Submission and that your Submission is not subject to any rights of a third party ".

    Clearly that site is neither Microsoft nor "one of the Microsoft Affiliates" so you're rightful to sue them if they don't remove it. :P
