thats a strong accusation, why dont you show _some_ proof of its validity
if it where true its a matter of showing a page or 2 of your code for
the public to compare, maybe you are speaking the truth maybe not

that is a lie, for example i found the following comments in the code from
if (blockCopyFiltering)     { // NOTE: always seen as true

than again iam not trying to defend code whos origin i dont know for certain
but i somehow doubt its a 1:1 copy of your code


In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
