Strangest thread ever.

zE, BlisTer and others are trying to protect YOU. Some mappers get VERY angry with people porting their maps (even from HL1 -> Source). Source -> Source is taking it to a new level, though. For the sake of your own protection, you need to do all that you can to get in contact with the original mapper. Taking existing and complete geometry and using it unchanged in your map is much different than taking a HL1 layout and recreating it faithfully and independently for a new mod (decompile a HL1 .bsp and see for yourself).

If you have tried to get in contact with the original creator and cannot, then make that clear and move on. There is no reason to defend yourself in that instance, because you have done nothing wrong. But, right now you are attacking people that have asked you a reasonable question.
