Well, demozoo is on github: https://github.com/demozoo/demozoo so I wouldn't use word "ripped" here for sure. :)

I guess the purpose of the clone is to harvest logins and passwords?

I only feel a little pissed that they don't credit us.

What's the intention of the clone?
Do they access the same databases or did they just mirror the databases at the time of their launch? I noticed that demozoo has slightly more data than bof, so I assume they just mirrored the databases?
Seems just plain odd to me. I guess if their intention would be to harvest demozoo user credentials they would have called themselves demozoo as well. I don't get it...

That's all speculation atm... we have no explanation either and I agree it doesn't make much sense.
