Basically it's a ti-for-tat war. You can break the cycle, but they can 
un-break the break, which they can then unbreak, ad-infinitum. Look here

One of my main wiki's has actually been framed by another site. It's 
annoying, but the reality is that I still get the page rank, so I don't 
bother breaking the frame. NY Times clearly has other goals.
