Default Fake Team BHP resembling websites

Incidentally, while searching for team BHP in another computer bumped into a site resembling Team BHP. Stuff was as usual bashing us and trying to emulate our great auto community. These fake sites in fact help in increasing the importance of Team BHP and goes to underline our prominence.
While googling this look alikw saite appears just below our site's.
The link is. http://www.html

Mods, I am only posting to warn our members and if is against forum rules or if in wrong place please move/delete.

Actually there are a lot of angry people out there who have not been able to get the approval of the mods for the membership. Also some of these have been banned due to not following the rules. All these people hence end up venting there frustration out side on various blogs etc. To me this just shows that the MODS did the right thing in identifying there true character and keeping them away.

Rajeev, I've moved your thread in general Shifting Gears as this is not a gadget related discussion.

Now, regarding these kind of sites.. Just don't bother. I cannot see the site from your pasted link but it doesn't really matter.
We've seen this before and we're going to see more in future too.

It's takes a lot to bring a forum like ours to be where it's today.
There's no easy way out. We're absolutely OK without those characters. Aren't we?

It is good that these characters could not infiltrate into our community and litter the clean environs.

This made the sunday morning.
Had a good time reading the "grievances" of people who couldn't get membership or did a "***" on seeing the registration questions. Also, came across some forums which are similar to team-bhp in look,feel but not that much in content.

To each his own.. i say.

Note from Mod : We are too busy creating value on, and enjoying, Team-BHP to worry about the naysayers. This thread is hereby closed as it will only lead to a waste of time (which otherwise can be spent on discussing cars ). Thanks
