It has come to my attention that a certain user has taken offense to a pantsification of their icon, or some such event has occurred, so I will post this notice to avoid future incidents:
A pantsifying user does not require your direct permission in order to pantsify an icon of yours. You may, however, post a bulliten in your user information that would prevent them from doing so. If they still plagiarize your icon, or fail to give you proper credit, you may contact me to have the user's icon taken down or have the user in question banned. And remember, imitation is the surest form of flattery, this is only meant for fun and no offense should be taken on such an innocent act.
Feel free to send me a private message with any concerns.
