So somebody copied virtually all the code from my robots meta plugin, put it in a “Platinum SEO” plugin, and conveniently forgot to attribute the code to me… The GPL isn’t that hard to deal with, but somehow, people manage to fuck even that up. I’ve emailed them and posted a formal complaint to the wp-hackers mailing list, asking for the removal of the plugin from the WordPress plugin directory until the code is properly attributed. Don’t people get that doing stuff like that can get you in court? It’s plain copyright violation… If a reader here happens to be a good copyright lawyer and wants to play, let me know :)
Another nice thing a friend pointed me at today is that if you’re sending out email, at all, and you host or register your domains through GoDaddy, you might be in for some pain. Apparently, they can take your domain hostage if someone files a spam complaint… GoDaddy never had the best reputation, but this is another reason to urge you to switch away from them.
