to be honest I'm not sure what you mean? Who is misreading? 
I agree that there is something funny going on.

I have hacked my blog so that I can trace individual posts on google.
It came up when I was doing a search on one of the blogs. It still
comes up on google, I just checked. Maybe I search differently than
you? However the search results do seem to have changed since i last
looked, it was harder to find this morning

In the past few yearss I have had an ongoing problem with a troll.
Wont bore you with details but I suspect that this is the latest
offering. Ie the things been hacked purely as a form of harrassment. I
agree that quiksilver probably has nothing to do with it, which is why
I am waiting to hear from them before i do anything more. 

I just asked for help with the technical details of what they had done?

There's a big difference between having your content cached by a
search engine and someone mirroring your site for commercial gain.
