While I was searching for something in Google, I came across db-pub forums where all our OraFAQ messages are available ditto. I noticed that entire OraFAQ forum is replicated. I am not sure how db-pub forum runs and what rules do they have. Whether it's legal/official or is it plagiarism. I did not see anywhere any description available about the site. I could only see a one-liner description in Google search page :

./fa/11927/0/

But nowhere it talks about from where these messages are actually from? If I see any topic, and go through the messages,

For example, community hangout replica http://db-pub.com/forum-1180p1/community-hangout.html

Their homepage http://db-pub.com/ The entire Oracle forum is ditto of OraFAQ.

I remember, once Ed was talking about "Gitesh Trivedi" and his plagiarism with www.dbametrix.net here, that site is too registered on godaddy. The new guy is "Jia Nan Zhu"

On reading the OP I immediately started wondering if this could be traced back to Gitesh Trividi. But after reading the rest, I don't think so. He is in India. The fact that they are both on GoDaddy doesn't mean much. GoDaddy is just a mass-market hosting and registration site. Probably hosting a lot of bottom feeders who have no connection with each other, as well as a lot of amature bloggers who simply don't know what other hosting and registration options are available or why they might want to use some other option, simply because GoDaddy is the only one buying mass-market advertising.
