Troubles on being popular

phpMyAdmin is quite popular tool and it attracts people who want to earn money on it. For long time Navicat company used phpMyAdmin name to propagate their completely different product, but this seems to be gone now (probably with help from Google, but I haven't receive reply from them, but short after my complain, all their ads abusing phpMyAdmin were gone).

Today Marc spotted that somebody just stole our website added Google shopping cart and started to sell phpMyAdmin:

Lets see how long will it take to get them down.

PS: There is intentionally no link in this post, you can see URL on screenshot, if you really want.

Update: It looks like hosting is very responsible on such problems, they just disabled this domain:
