no attribution to CDRLabs... no direct attribution to Miyuri (although he does at least link Miyuri's site)... no permission requested or received from Miyuri or CDRLabs.... and he repackaged the installation from the original zip archive to a WinRAR archive, removing the password in contravention to Miyuri's desire that users read the readme.txt file before installing.
Does he always behave like this? He should take a pointer from Club CDFreaks - they are a classy group and did the right thing.
Unfortunately yes. They've done things like that in the past. Someone "borrowed" a lot of the info from CD Freak's WSES guide for their own article without giving any credit to them.
I'm not sure how people do things in Greece, but thats just plain rude. Give credit where its due. If you're going to try to pass off your website as a "professional CD-R testing lab", you don't do things like that.
And yes, CD Freaks is a group of classy guys. One of their mods, rdgrimes, came to me and asked if it was alright if he linked to our CD Doctor thread. No, not to steal and repackage the zip.. just link to our thread. Of course I had no problem with that.
I try not to speak too openly about things like this because every time I criticize cdrinfo in some way, they make it into a huge deal about it in their forum. I'm sure this thread is already being linked over there and someone is already talking crap about me, CDRLabs and my mother.
Merry frigging Christmas.. hopefully your pantyhoes will be full of coal..
