Just got back online after that post yesterday to find my inbox filled with great little Tabulas comments. I'm especially loving the little flame war going on here.

Here I will debunk common beliefs by Ms. Elena Dan:

1.) Elena, I am in Korea. I cannot resolve to a NY ISP. Unfortunately for you, the only time I even visited your site was a few minutes ago to see how "original" your design is to see how much injustice has been done. I have no intentions nor do I want to "secretly" flame you in your blog.

2.) I am fully capable of deleting your comments and banning you from the whole site. But I'm getting a very good laugh out of all this ... seeing how worked up someone can get over something so simple. Please... continue to make a fool of yourself in my journal :) I think a lot of people are getting a good laugh out of it.

3.) I'm not sure if you listened and implemented a quick .htaccess to deny images, but I don't see bandwidth "theft" any more. Also, this person (minzywee) is not making any attempts to say this is hers; she's left all references to your website active. I wouldn't be surprised if someone was just messing around one day and seeing how far the templating engine would go.

4.) Minzywee hasn't posted since May 15th. I doubt anybody is even visiting that site, except for you, agonizing over the loss of "design theft."

5.) Let me give you a hint here: You are not a great designer. Hell, you're not even a good designer. I'm sorry, but you're probably about to hit that "Comment" button and respond the same to me. Guess what? I know I'm not a great designer ... or a great programmer. I've written about security issues on end and end on this site, fully addressing the problems. I've said this, but this site is a learning experience for me. So your little comments laughing at the downfalls of Tabulas are not gonig to botehr me one bit. I post them on the main page so people are aware of the problems and now there is a transparency between this project and the people using it.

My point here is this: Don't go around making a huge deal out of something so inane. I mean really, do you ahve to spend so much time on such a simple object ... can't you swallow your pride for a second and send me a proper email?

6.) You acting like a bitch will not resolve this issue any further. Furthermore, continuing to flame me or anybody else is not goingg to resolve this issue any faster. As I have said time and time again, the moment you start acting civilly and give me some time to get my stuff together, I will be glad to help you out.

7.) Get a life.

In conclusion, Elena, I will be glad to help you out. Any continued comments and flames will be ignored. Feel free to send me an email and I will be glad to help you out. Any emails containing flames or continuing this discussion will be promptly deleted.

Sorry to drag all the extended readership of my blog here. I won't post any more on this issue.

Everything has been straightened out now. I worded the darn post wrong, I apologized to Roy about it & it seems to be all good now.

I am not a wicked bitch (so it might seem sometimes from the crap I have written, I was just pissed off). I have it all explained on my site, if you would care to go read it. It\'s just something stupid that went way to far & I aologize to everyone.

I am not on the computer to make enemies. I have never had any problems with anyone before, I don\'t enjoy flying off the handle. I think everything was just a huge misunderstanding.

As I said everything is explained more deeply on my blog, I also posted this on the post that I left the first 2 comments on.

Sorry, Roy, but looking at this whole issue objectively, I\'ve gotta take Elena\'s side here. You\'d better fly back from Korea ASAP.

I refuse to ask <em>why</em> you need to take Elena\'s side...

On a side note, Roy has to be a better programmer than MicroShit since he actually fixes many security holes in a fashionable time. Well he\'s more organized anyway.
