What exactly is this "something else", please define "scam" then.H4x0rBattie said:...The definition of scam is something else therefore; please do not mention my tool and scam in same sentence unless you're here to slander....
Your charging money for source code and are saying it has features it doesn't actually have. By definition that's "false advertising", and thus a scam, or swindle if you prefer. And there is clear case law in the US in regards to this, and specifically with software features (you can actually be charged/sued for "false advertising" in the US, without someone even buying the product). And so where you're getting "slander" is beyond me, because again there's clear case law in regards to slander and false advertising; and falsely clamming "slander" is a "slader us actuation" and thus slander in itself (some good meta humor here). And I don't think you can actually "slander" an object, only people or companies (not really sure about this, would have to look at case law).

Don't get me wrong, it's a neat tool and thanks for sharing the program freely; but your basically looking at CE and then adding the features it already has then just doing it differently and acting as if you invented it. But I guess you could say your a fan of Eddison, he's often credited with things he never did; most people think he invented the lightbulb even though he only patented what a staff member came up with for a working filament.
And you're doing all this on forums centered around CE, just seems like preaching Islam to Catholics; it's not ever going to go well.
