Very much so. I have no philosophical objection to people distributing my work. I have objections to people taking my work and publishing it on a distribution platform without asking, and then being dicks about it when questions are raised.
For what it's worth, you are free to keep my addons on your site, and update them automatically from wowace, including ClosetGnome (and modules), BugSack, BanzaiAlert, BigWigs_CommonAuras, AuraToChat, ErrorMonster, DeuceLog, FuBar_PTReagentFu, FuBar_GroupFu, Violation, and probably some other small addons I forgot about.
If you chose to do that, I request that you add a note to the description page saying that the addon is automatically updated every day and is considered to be in development, and not a stable release.
This does not include addons like BigWigs though, since we make regular actual releases of that to the major addon sites, like curse-gaming and wowinterface.
I'm not going to post again in this thread, or read it, so if you have any questions for me, feel free to send me a private message.
Some of us used to release our addons on ui.wow and have since LEFT the site. I do not want my works released there, if I did I would still be doing it. I release my addons on WoWI, I do not want them on ui.wow at all, for any reason.
I actually manually uploaded one of my mods to wowui, but the bot links to a different beta version that I specifically keep off release sites. I will likely be removing my mod from wowui and only release to curse and wowinterface considering the severe disrespect shown to me and fellow mod authors.
