    Sarcasm at it's best.

    Forum home looks more light vB than XF.

    Not really: change the node icons with XF ones, redraw the separation lines... done, totally XF.

    I love the use of tables and the overuse of divs.

    The rip is pretty blatant, many of the class names are the same too. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Really? I took a few samples since this thread was opened and I don't see much duplication in the way of classes.

    Blatant rip of the style so far, but what's generated for the end-user is a whole different beast.

    Needs more analysis, honestly.

    So let me get this straight...he made a Torrent tracker and included XenForo in it? Source code says?

    	<a href="http://templateshares-ue.net/tsue/?p=forums&amp;pid=11&amp;fid=7&amp;tid=624">XenForo Integration</a>
    YES! Where is my pitchfork?

    It goes both ways, I see a lot of classes and structure differences between the two. Yes, there are some duplications of class names, but they're fairly generic.

    There's a lot of stuff from XF that I can't find in their stuff and vice versa. Still, none of us can see the raw back-end code, so there's not much we can do to analyze it.

    You're pointing to this thread with that 'code' : http://templateshares-ue.net/tsue/?p=forums&pid=11&fid=7&tid=624 -- Read the title/thread.

    multi-coloured poll bars nice. Shadow and background on the style looks alright to. I'd suggest removing the node icons for something less big and oh wait, this isn't the forum critique area is it? #blondemoment

    It's a blatant rip. Yes they have obviously been smart enough to change the template output to a degree that it is not an exact match, but the rip is obvious. I see things like these and wonder why honest people sweat day in and day out to survive when others copy in plain sight or throw outrageous claims in lawsuits just because they can. Oh the arrogance of it... :(

    I think Kier, Mike and Ashley have likely had their fill of the inside of any courthouse for quite sometime.

    I reported this site to XenForo months ago, Mike said he would look into it. Guess with all the lawsuit stuff they haven't much time to investigate.
