Yeah true thats how I learnt too. I don't know what the big deal with ripping if someone rips your script and takes credit who cares? Life goes on, All scripts are open source if you dont want people to see your code don't release it. Ive had people rip my scripts and make them even better than I did. Which encouraged me to make mine better. Thinking about codemastr's post, look at it this way all scripts double as a learning resource. "Knowlege belongs to the world".
