stealing a forum name...need some opinions

ok so my local car site got further divided once again when this chick decided to make her own forum named "wvspeed.org" she also made a myspace page about it to try to get members

she made this site to pull members off the original site and cause drama...
i found out today that there is already a wvspeed forum and myspace group that was made 2 years ago

so basically this chick stole the name and is claiming it as her own... she also had to remove photos from the site because she was claiming them as hers and they wernt.

how would i go about getting the "copy" site removed? lol

i need options...and they dont have to be nice...lol

Re: stealing a forum name...need some opinions

i was told we could get a group of ppl to "view" the website... causing an overload to her bandwidth, crashing her site... but i want somthing more permanent...lol

i used to know one of her PW's that she would use...but i forget...it had Mustang in it...
funny thing is...she started a car forum...and she doesnt even have a car...and her b/f wont let her work on/let alone touch his mustang

There's always a brute force attack, dont need people for it, just need a back door in and you can really cripple her site. but then that would be illegal :P

Re: stealing a forum name...need some opinions

You can't really have it removed, even if she was using your images. Proving that she is using members photos will be really difficult. Why not just make a forum wide announcement over the crazy bitch and her crazy shit? :P
