The "Platinum SEO Pack" plugin [1] has copied large portions of the  
code in my robots meta plugin [2] without proper attribution, and  
without notifying me. That's a direct violation of the GPL, and as  
such I'd like to know who to contact to have the plugin removed from  
the repository until it's author decides to attribute it correctly.
