What's actually happening is that the scraper they used actually 
converted the index.php of my mint[1] installation to an html file 
full of javascript, but the server he's using is parsing all files as 
php and the call to the htm is with a ?js  so what's happening is hits 
on a couple of his pages *were*[2] being recorded as hits on my site.

net result I have had to disable my Mint stats collection.

his actions have broken my site functionality and are costing me money.

[1] Mint, by the way, is an excellent website analytics tool and can 
be found here:

[2] I have had to disable it.
