Lets try to close one of the cheating Runescape Blogs

I am still in a fighting mood and here is an idea I came up with: let's try to close one of the cheating RWT blogs. This one:

As you can see this blog mostly steals from Sal's. What is also important is that the cheaters use Blogspot to host the blog and at least in case of Blogspot I know how to fight it. But I will need YOUR help! One person won't make an impact, but if we act together I hope this blog will be closed.

Here is what I suggest:

1. Mark this blog as "inappropriate". You will need an account on Blogspot in order to do it. If you don't have one, please, register - it's free. Plus you'll be able to post "non-anonymous" comments to all Blogspot blogs, including the Reader's Digest :-)
Here is where you mark the blog as "inappropriate":

2. Write a complain to the Blogspot team about that cheating blog. You can start from here.

3. If you are from Sal's, I'd like to ask you to send a note to Salmoneus notifying about the problem. As the content owner, Salmoneus (or someone else from the site management) can file a DMCA notice, starting from here.
That should have a lot of weight. I sent a note to Salmoneus, but I am afraid he might ignore it, as I am not that active on the forum there.

4. If you would like to join the action, let your blog readers know about it as well. Link to this post or copy the steps.

And let's see if it works out. Hopefully we can make an impact there.

Nice post there Vaskor. I just flagged them and left a complaint. I will blog about them as well, and ask my readers to do the same.

Hoe ya don't mine if I steal your content (hehe).

Jax, Turbo, thank you for the support!

And, Turbo, I sure don't mind you copying this post to your blog. I practically asked for it in the step 4 anyway :-) And you linked the original post too, I appreciate it.

Very well, I'll play your little game.

It's great to know that there is something us Bloggers can do for the RS community :-)

This is White Hawk by the way.

I noticed this quite a while ago when I googled 'Merch Gwyar' and it came up with tons of Gold Selling and Power Leveling sites with her blog on it. I don't know how to remove that type of entry, but at Sals, a lot of people made fake blog entries saying things about how the money is earned in sweatshops. Hopefully that helped a bit. If I see one such as the one you listed, I will be sure to do as requested.
