So, someone took my repl and published it as an npm package...
h
programmeruser (615)

My question: Are they legally allowed to do this?
The packages in question:
https://www.npmjs.com/package/replblog
https://www.npmjs.com/package/replblog.js
The repl is attached below.
I believe it was @muchtek who published it.

Hello everyone,
I would like to apologize to all of the repl.it community for my actions. Yes, I did publish the packages, but I would like to say that I had no bad intentions. I wanted to make @programmeruser 's package easy-to-use, and I now regret giving you no credit. I want to personally apologize, as I wanted no conflict, and in fact only wanted to help anyone wishing to make a bot using the repl blog chat bot code you provided. I hope you understand what I was trying to do, and I again apologize to the community. The last thing I want to do is steal someone else's code as my own, and I am not really an expert in licensing, so once more, I apologize to all of you, and especially to you, @programmeruser . Thank you all for taking the time to read this and understand.

@muchtek With this said, I have deleted the npm packages in question.

@alanchen12 Apologies, I must have only deleted replblog, but I will do that now

@muchtek
this only happens when the package has been deleted... I am not sure what is wrong

@alanchen12 interesting, it shows up for me too, but I have this image:
perhaps we need to clear browsing data.
