Go up one level in this thread


And where did anyone here say it was an outright clone here Peter?

They are very very similar in lots of ways, in fact Fafis it contains strings
that are only found in Crafty. This does not in itself constitute a proof but
when added to all other similarities, you have to say that obvious is too weak a
word.

Regardless of the these stark similarities of the two programs, ask yourself
this simple question.

Would you entertain the thought of using a program from an author who supplied a
version to all in the community with a worm inside it?

Not only that, but by demonstration on all known information was placed inside
deliberately.

Would you like to use an engine by an author who does this?

Yes or no?
