THN Magazine ripped off our design and code

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." But this is way more than that.

Rip-off, Original.

Rip-off, Original.

Rip-off, Original.

And it's not just the design. It's the code (most of the HTML + CSS) as well.

Rip-off, Original (the highlighted "hm.local" line is my local dev settings)

Now I have (or used to have) tremendous respect for the team behind THN magazine, but this is just blatantly copying and ripping off our entire site.

Update: Some discussion going on at Hacker News

Update: Turns out (as one of our reader pointed out), they didn't change our Google Analytics code as well. And they still sending traffic stats to our analytics account everyday.
