    Basically, I'm a huge fan of the game Skyrim (and its previous titles, Morrowind and Oblivion), I participate in the games' forums (the Bethsoft forums) sometimes. But I realised that one forum basically copied all of the posts, including mine, and put the posts under fake names and photos.

    It's called GameSkyrim (www.gameskyrim.com) and it's really freaking me out. What's worse is that when I'm finding out stuff from the actual game series, the GameSkyrim fake threads dominate the search results. What's going on?

    Are there ads on the site? (I have adblock on so I wouldn't know if there were)

    If so, maybe they are automatically copying the official forums so they get lots of hits when people search for TES stuff.

    There are but I don't think that it is their only reason to exist...

    Afaik they encouraged people to sign up so they could be spammed to oblivion (no pun intended). But no one can register there anymore.
