Hmm… looks like our friend Ben over at Blogging Experiment is pondering over whether to sell his customized WordPress Theme or not. I suggest him to incorporate in South Africa and don’t worry about what happens. Okay, that was a joke.
BTW, FCUK is a clothing line I like to wear, it stands for “French Connection United Kingdom“, so don’t be offended, it’s not the swear word…hahaha…
Here’s the comment he received from some BloggingPro, he know how to leave nasty comments w/o clear explanation:
Most of the code of this theme, as well as the graphics comes from the Blogging Pro Theme which is not GPL, it is Creative Commons. Which means you can’t sell this theme. You are profiting off of code you do not own. A quick look at the graphics, CSS, and even theme structure compared to the Blogging Pro theme will let you know this is the case.
Please do not sell this theme any longer, and I will be contacting the creator of the Blogging Pro theme, Design Disease, as well as the owners of the copyright, Bloggy Network LLC.
I think leaving a comment like this proves that they got nothin’ to support their case.
They clearly state here, “a quick look at the ….” Well, that means you should look a little closer, you dumba*s. They should really take a CLOSE look and compare it first before leaving a nasty comment. Check out their parent company, it’s got pictures from the 50s! (WTF? Can they hide behind some fake pics? At least put some pics in color!)
I’ve personally encountered worse comments before and they usually end up as nothing. Ben, my advice to keep selling your blog theme and ignore their stupidity and sue them first for leaving such a comment on your blog, fight for your rights. You can sue them for:
1. Disturbing your sales of your wordpress theme for however many days
2. Leaving such a nasty comment
3. Unprofessional behavior
You should really sue BloggingPro first and they will probably get scared and go into their hiding place or is it happy place?
You know the part about this comment that annoys me the most? It’s not even the fact that the blog owners Ben did something wrong or right, it’s that Bloggy Networks LLC think they can just push around people. These types of comments really annoy me the most. This is very unprofessional and they should keep that under e-mails or phone calls. I’d be happy to remove this post if you guys apologize to Ben and send us $10,000 to our PayPal account.
That’s my 2 cents on this issue, and stop wasting my time whoever it is. Just leave Ben alone! Peace out!
