Every time I check it out it is either another branch of Google or it's a translation site.

Can't Google figure this out for themselves without me manually doing it at least once a week on average?

Well, it's interesting to find who's hotlinking, cut-n-pasting or scraping without permission, and sometimes I write to G and ask it slap appropriate wrists, which I believe that it does. So worth it for entertainment value in the longer run. (I don't believe that, eg, about.com pays any attention when I ask them to stop copying/framing my content without permission or attribution, but when the cease-and-desist comes via G I'd like to believe that there's not a dry trouser in the house!)

PS. Plus I think it also shows a general unwillingness to profit from bad traffic, so should stand you in good stead in any site review unpleasantness...
