    Default Rigs and Geeks capturing our content and other forums too

    I noticed while trawling online recently that the rigsandgeeks site seems to be capturing our threads as its own (and changing user names accordingly). Some examples

    https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...se-13-1-a.html

    samba-krb-printing - Missing in OpenSuse 13.1


    https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...se-13-1-a.html

    SOLUTION FOR KSCREEN NOT SAVING DUAL MONITOR CONFIGURATION IN OPENSUSE 13.1


    It has also been noticed and discussed by mybraodband.za forum

    Rigs and Geeks stealing content from other forums (including MyBB)
