Don’t remove #9 ("Take some content from the site that took yours.")It’s not necessarily bad advice but you need to use it carefully.If the content thief has actually produced stuff himself, take something from him that he clearly invested time in and is probably a bit proud of. Don’t steal "back" wholesale, be selective, but at least make him feel the pain. (And choose something that’s actually useful for your site.)Another solution is to start another site using his content. Try to outrank his original content with your copy :-) Perhaps you could get to inflict the duplicate content penalty on his site...

One other thing. Advice #0 is communicating with the thief. Many are surprisingly "receptive" of an e-mail or phone call asking to remove the content. Not all of them like conflicts.

 Writing a post making others aware, would be helpful!
