Call to action: report Sarawak Report clone for ethical issues

Dear all,

This is a call to action! Sarawak Report, a website critical of Sarawak
chief minister Taib Mahmud has been cloned: http://www.sarawakr (the
difference is "reports"). Please download Web of Trust to rate this website
as having "ethical issues" (or should it be "scams"?). If we have enough
votes, browsers such as Mozilla and IE will blacklist them and come up with
warning. This is linked to which is also a reputation provider
for Mozilla. So both Google and Mozilla will block the clone page if enough
people report it.

I left a comment about the website: This is a cloned website of another that
is seeking to expose government wrongdoing. It is rubbishing legitimate
criticism of the state that has been in power for 30 years and attempting to
blacken vocal critics.

Help stop the malicious cybertroopers from misleading people. Forward this
call to action that's easily .
