Apology

I would like to sincerely apologise to Garrett at maniacalrage.net for using his design without permission.

When I was looking for templates to use with MT, Garrett’s site came up and I loved the design, so I co-opted it with attribution. But I realise after Garrett expressed his anger that I had crossed the line with the design, and rather than being “inspired”, the design was a blatant rip-off of his original work. Garrett was absolutely right to express his disgust at my actions. As a musician and artist, I should have known better than to do this.

I got suckered into the mindset that attribution was enough. In this day and age, it is not enough to say “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. It’s just downright wrong to use other people’s work without their express permission, attributed or not. And I am a fool for doing so.

So again, I sincerely apologise to Garrett, and have changed my site design to something different.
