Just a thought that came to mind:

Act responsibly. Don't lie, cheat, or steal.

Even the most noble of us do blatantly lie, cheat and steal quite often.

I (and most people, too) do it all the time; but nobody bothers, because we do it openly. We either tell it right away that we lied, cheated and stole - because of something, giving credits as to why or from whom we did, and how that is improving things in some way or another.

That's the way to do what you did, the way most people tolerate it. I have seen the effort you have done. That's alright, it's not degrading or anything bad, just do tell it like it is.

Cheers, Sören

    I think jesuashok would have been fine if he'd simply troubled himself to say:

    This node inspired by C Program to propose a girl.

    Or even merely noting:

    Translated to Perl by jesuashok

    He did neither of these things, however, and when confronted with the evidence, proceeded to lie about it.

    IMHO, compounding your crimes compounds your guilt.

    You may of course feel differently about it, especially if yours had been the original work appropriated, without attribution.

      Well, I don't. Sorry if that remained unclear. (And no, the orinal work isn't mine)

      Cheers, Sören
