If like me you have issues with a blog duplicating/stealing your blog posts and the following to your WordPress theme’s functions.php (Appearance > Editor):

remove_action(‘do_feed_rdf’, ‘do_feed_rdf’, 10, 1);
remove_action(‘do_feed_rss’, ‘do_feed_rss’, 10, 1);
remove_action(‘do_feed_rss2’, ‘do_feed_rss2’, 10, 1);
remove_action(‘do_feed_atom’, ‘do_feed_atom’, 10, 1);

This disables the /feed form your website and hopefully stops content being duplicated by other ‘bloggers’ through a plugin.

You can also ask Google to remove the URLs from searches if a copyright infringement here:
