This is in reference to the "Sudden Attack is not a clone" topic in the General room. I finally got sick and tired of this topic and stopped following it.
My main thought is, if we're not going to allow people to link to/announce clones on the forum (which I believe is the correct decision), why are we allowing people to talk about them? Even if no links are given, it still keeps these games on people's minds, when what I'm sure most of us would want here is for clones to be nowhere in sight. Not to mention that this particular clone was apparently made by somebody who was recently permanently banned from the forum, so in my opinion we shouldn't be giving him—or his cloned game—the time of day here.
Some people just dont' seem to get it, no matter how many times someone reminds them that it doesn't matter how much you change or what you do, it's Still! Stolen! Code! And there's nothing you can do about it, unless you rewrite the game from scratch, using nobody else's code, or at least only others' code which was released under a license permitting use.
