    From my AP center...

    Grow up please
    OK...YOU come up with a thread that you intend to act as a beneficial tool that the whole community to contribute to, then have some JOHNNIE-COME-LATELY copy the inspiration behind that thread and then claim it as his own and see how it makes you feel. IF ChrisWuk wants to contribute, thats great....he found some great tools and I'm more than happy to concede that. They would have made a GREAT addition to the thread that was ALREADY started LONG before he posted his thread. Instead, he choose to take someone elses idea and pass it off as his own in a manner that doesn't leave room for the rest of the community to contribute. So much for honor and good manners.

    To add insult to injury he posts a link to his copy-cat thread to the original thread, therefore tearing down what WAS a good concept....the people of AO coming together and pooling resources in a way that benefits us all. Sorry Chris, but I consider that to be a low blow that was undeserved and VERY selfish on your part. If you disagree, then by all means feel free to post, PM or take whatever action you deem appropriate.
