Dear visitors,

do you know, that there are people out there, who steal content from others, without crediting? Additionally they pretend to help the homebrew scene…

Well it happened once again, our majesty, Wraggster the Thief I., honest webmaster of the money making machine has copied PDRoms Openmoko section, two hours after after PDRoms introcuded it. Of course he also grabbed three Openmoko news, without credits.

The content does not appear on the main page of DCEmu, apparently Homebrew-King Wraggster wants to avoid PDRoms Main News on his front page, to lower the impression that he is a bloody thief.

Fact is, the news were stolen, without credits, may they be on the main page or not. As I am not able to check topics on DCEmu myself due to beeing banned, the no credit fact has been confirmed by RoBoCop_ ( ) and myself via using a proxy.

Yesterday there was an issue where Wraggster has stolen news from Brakken/, pretty fast and with an apology Wraggster added credits to the stolen news post. He probably fears Brakken more than PDRoms, because the community there is a lot larger.

To be continued…

To be fair here is a “response” from Wraggster

Now a few things to clear up:

* I am not a “german”, you may look at a country south to germany…

* PDRoms is a hobby for me as well. I have a 40h/week main job with a sidejob along with a family – then additional work with PDRoms kicks in, also few hours daily. Just beeing busy is no excuse to forget credits with a clear system. You are angry at me because I told the public that you stole an article and rewrote it with your own words. That’s a fact and your apology was just the one you gave to brakken yesterday. Beeing tired is no right to leave out appropriate credits. If you have power to rewrite a whole article, which you have seen somewhere else, then there should be credits with it too.

* If your banners dont bring any money, then why you just dont remove them? There are enough pages where people can figure out if a decent dealer is trustable or not. You could even do that in your boards without spoiling your main page with more than 4 banner ads. Also we should not forget the hidden affilation codes in most posts – Your explanation just does not work out if you think logical. GBAdev also has a discussion sections about dealers without extraordinary hughe advertising anywhere. If your statement is true, you know what to do now…

* Neither I am jelous nor do I really want to go the public way, but the public critism so far did not seem to have impressed you. If you want to earn or not earn money, is your personal problem. I just want proper credits for everyone. If you forget it sometimes, hell, it’s perfectly okay. But if you follow your own news, there is a structure that you grab from sites such as nintendomax without any credits. As we are into homebrew for ages, I believe we do have the same sources of aquiring information, so I pretty much know what I am talking about. If not, I am open for beeing teached.

* If someone would blame you for something horrible which you have not done or you never did, I would stand up for you too. Even now, it’s not a question of “friendship” in any form. Unfortunatly the police still did not track down that guy as he was using a proxy… that troll was also after other people. Probably he has seen it as kind of sports to make other people bad.

* As we are in the same “homebrew” boat I suggest two things. Peace or war! It’s fully up to you. Just don’t say I did not offer you a situation to iron anything out. All I want is proper crediting for everyone (even if you are tired) and a proper apology. So sweetheart… it’s your turn! You may rant back a bit for public entertainment 🙂

Wraggster has deleted his “response” but it’s saved in the PDRoms webboard as screenshot, you may read that up there.
