Random things

First, there's a site called fictionhunt(dot)com (written that way so that the site doesn't get a callback from me) that seems to be scraping ffnet for Harry Potter fanfics and posting them on their site. The fics are primarily presented as links to the ffnet version with links to the authors' profiles, but include an "archive" link which is a copy of the text on their servers. It seems to only target Harry Potter, and does not include crossovers, as they had my one HP fic ("Liquid Luck") but not my DW/HP crossover ("Mistaken Identity").

So, if you don't like your HP stories being copied to places you didn't put them, you might want to check this site out. Fortunately, there is a link at the bottom of the page that tells you how to request that they remove your fic from their archive, and they respond quickly and politely - they removed "Liquid Luck" within an hour. Once it's removed, the link to your fic on ffnet will still appear on the site, but the archive is gone.
