This plugin was intended so I could aggregate some of my and my family members blogs together on my front page using an all-Wordpress solution. However, it seemed to attract spammers who abused it, which is even worse for me, because it puts “Post by XXXXX and software by me” on the bottom of every import, leading some people to believe that I am a spammer.
I am not, and I encourage you to go after anyone abusing this with a DMCA notice. You can follow these instructions, which should get the offending site removed in short order. I’ve had my own sites ripped off by people abusing this plugin, and filed dozens of DMCA notices against spammers. In the web 2.0 world, information is money, and there are far too many people–often located outside of the US–who want to rip off your work, rather than writing for themselves.
