    Re: CODEROOM - 1000 free VB code samples available for download !

    Hi,

    Just revisiting this thread after some months away. Karl, I take small
    exception to you grouping me with Rogerio & Steve, et al. If you check,
    you'll find that it was me who started this argument. I'm on your side. I
    have the intention to publish some of my code soon and I would hate to see
    some talentless hack strip out my copyrights and publish it as 'anonymous'
    or his own work. Besides, I'm rather vain about these things, and if I
    publish something, I want to see MY f***ing name in MY code. I would not
    do this to somebody else's code and I expect them not to do it to mine.

    Sorry, don't mean to restart an old argument, but I have rather strong
    feelings about all this.

    Sorry if I misunderstood your position.
