    Plagiarism is the best form of flattery, right?

    One of our readers let us know that HACKERSTYLE.COM copied our Windows XP SP1 Upgrade word for word, even the HTML for images links as you'll soon see.

    Come on, Tweak.. you can tell us! You've been moonlighting again at HACKERSTYLE, haven't you! :no:

    I wonder how they could expect to get away with that, as closely linked as the collection of tweaking sites are on the internet!

    They're dense Tweak. They just removed the coding for the pic. You'll have to do this the hard way since they can't seem to take a hint. :(

    I got a response, for those interested...

    Hey,

    It wasn't mine intension to steal your article. I just thought it should look prettier directly from mine site =)
    I respect someones work so if you want it removed from mine server, I'll do so.

    I hope you are not too mad about it so we can forget the whole 'stealing' thing.

    Regards,

    Didn't you read the whole post? It stated that it was from TweakTown. Anyway i removed the article and linked it to tweaktown.

    Adi,

    You say you respect peoples work but you did plagiarize our article directly on your website. I am an understanding person but I would appreciate it if you remove the article from your website. If you stated that the article was originally by TweakTown with a link it wouldn’t have been half as bad, you probably should have asked for permission as well before hand.

    heh couldn't see it apparently they took it down already. anyway apparently there logo isn't too original either! They stole there logo design and made a cheap wanna-be copy of the band metallica's logo when they used it between 83-91! Who agrees with me?
