    ARE YOU UNABLE TO DO YOUR OWN WORK OR DO YOU HAVE TO JUST RIP OFF OTHER PEOPLES PLUGINS?

    YOU CANT EVEN BE BOTHERED TO GO THROUGH AND REMOVE ALL OF THE LINKS TO THE ORIGINAL AUTHOR WEBSITE - http://www.designchemical.com

    I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU REMOVE THIS COPY WORK IMMEDIATELY.

    YOU ARE NOT THE AUTHOR OF THIS PLUGIN OR IN ANY WAY A CONTRIBUTOR. YOU DO NOT OWN THE COPYRIGHT ON THIS CODE AND YOU ARE NOT AUTHORISED TO CLAIM THIS CODE AS YOUR OWN

  2. Please don't post in all caps.

    I've deleted your other post, and the plugin author of the ORIGINAL plugin has been told to do the proper thing and email pluginATwordpress.org with the details of this issue, complete with links to the original and 'copied' plugin.

    However. Bear in mind that GPL doesn't disallow this, nor does it call it 'theft.' It's perfectly legal, though unethical, to do this. Of course, a 100% copy with no changes isn't permitted in the plugin repository, so it'll probably be taken down.
