Someone Ripped Us Off!!!

Ironically enough, while I was perusing my stats today, I noticed that a fellow "professional" completely ripped off our web site?! The hilarious thing is that he didn't bother to even take out some of our images (the word Ricksticks shows up throughout the code, too)!!

What's really insultingly is that he is selling himself as a creative professional....okay....under the guise of other people's creativity? I don't mind people taking bits and repurposing them, but this is really inappropriate.

What should we do?
Has anyone else had their logo, web site or identity stolen?
Is this a form of flattery? :-)

I guess someone decided to start their own form of Ricksticks after all. I eat my humble pie now...
