availability-management.com ripping off my blog

availability-management.com has been ripping off my blog and posting it as their own.  No credit is given (a tiny link to the original).  They are using it to boost their search results to a page of theirs that is nothing more than advertising to various pages.  They don’t leave any contact info for themselves so that I contact them either.

They seem to be affiliated or sponsored by http://theartofservice.com.  Whatever.  Service?  More like… ripping off other people’s copyrighted works in order to promote their own advertising.

So far I’ve found five entire blog posts that they host as their own.  Grrr…..

I’m not making these hyperlinks to avoid boosting their page ranking.
