Looking through the Joomla New Extensions feed last night, I saw a new extension named Profiler.  Can you believe it? - Profiler - the name I'd given one of my apps which is still in development.  Of course, I was initially worried that someone had  released my extension as their own - but that doesn't appear to be the case.

This Profiler extension is the biggest steaming pile of crap I've ever seen.  Not only does it barely work (in some cases - it dies with a PHP Fatal Error), but it actually perpetuates some of the things that Community Builder has done - in the worst way.  So, after spending an hour or so going through the source code to verify that it isn't my code - I came to realize that only the name was stolen.... and pissed on - thoroughly.

So, since my code is safe, I'm taking the things I've learned and rewriting it into a new extension with a new name - a secret name.
