Conversations I use Google a lot to search this site. As of pretty recently, I have been noticing that relevant results have been very frequently coming from any of the following domains:

osnews.com
www4.osnews.com
mobile.osnews.com (this, specifically, should probably have a robots.txt file so it doesn't get spidered)
nmcx.com
74.86.31.159
newmobilecomputing.com
sundanced.com

You'll notice that visiting any one of these delivers the OSNews website, without redirecting. That is, http://nmcx.com/conversations does not redirect to http://www.osnews.com/conversations. It just displays the conversations page. Besides screwing with your google rankings, it confuses the hell out of me. A very simple .htaccess should be able to redirect everything to osnews.com/*

Now that is just evil that they are stealing the content and not even crediting the site.
