Hi I’ve just received comment under one of my themes.
To Author, I have reverse engineered this theme easily in 15 minutes. You must do something about it. I have this $10 theme for free by spending my 15 minutes on this theme. I will make sure that it will not be leaked by me. Good Luck
OH i forgot to say “ITS REALLY A GREAT THEME FOR AN ADMIN PANEL ” and Thank you very much.

And he doesn’t have buyer badge, so he basically has admitted that he stole my theme? I can’t believe it. It made me laugh at first moment, but soon I realized that guy just crossed the border.

I thinks he’s saying he managed to create the same structure himself, not that he downloaded it for free from somewhere.

If its a html template, he just leeched it.

Guess he’s talking about the JS? What, he just discovered Firebug? :D

I’d say simply request to delete that comment and move on, this kind of people will never buy anything so they’re not worth the time…

I think he skinned his own design with your html.

OMG :D:D:D

I would reply with something he don’t understand, too ;)!

He makes it sound like he’s a hacking master mind but it’s a site template so there’s nothing to reverse engineer. Anyone with 15 minutes and no moral compass could put it back together.

I’d just contact staff and inform them about it. Get them to delete the comment. It’s horrible people do things like this but they do. Hard to believe too when items are so cheap. But then again, its not that hard to believe in the world we live in.

Best of luck my friend. Take it as a compliment of sorts… Your template is so good its inspired idiots to want to steal it!!
