    I got an email this morning that one of my content sites had a new comment. I always spam these because they're always spam. So anyway, I read it and it isn't spam, it's a quote from one of my pages on my website, and the URL is some other dude's website. So I click on it, and it's a copy of my article with no credit. There are links back, but that's because I had links in my article to other pages on my site, and those links are intact.

    So my questions are:

    1) why did this get flagged as a comment, since it isn't a comment?

    2) my site is already indexed, so is this dbag gonna get duplicate content penalty?

    3) can i do anything to get it removed? It's my proprietary content.

    4) or, is the fact that the links within the article are still intact going to help give me extra link juice even tho it's coming from a dupe content page?

    5) it's on a .co.th site. Where is that? Thailand?

    "In layman’s terms, trackback is a way to notify a website when you publish an entry that references it."

    don't worry about penalty for duplicate across sites.. just don't duplicate it on your own site
