Where and to whom can one report the scraping of RFD forums?

I am getting tied of seeing the poster bot called "DealsCanada" (who is the moderator of this subreddit) scrape every single post from the Hot Deals forum and re-post it at https://www.reddit.com/r/ShopCanada/, without any attribution to RFD or the original poster of the deal whatsoever. Not only is this activity is in clear violation of item #7 of the RFD T&C, it is also just plain sketchy.

Who can this be reported to?

This also sounds like a violation of the Reddit ToS, Section 4.
Maybe you should also raise complaints to reddit about this.

I think RFD should do that it's their content
