I'm reminded of when a teacher accused me of cheating on an exam. She pointed out that only me and the guy sitting behind me chose to match letter to number, rather than matching number to letter.
I was a straight A student, he averaged C's.
My response was something along the lines of ' I can't believe you think I cheated off his paper!'
It worked then, too.
My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

We need to be careful about quoting Google Search ranking as Law, especially if you have Chrome. Google has been using a biased ranking for a while, and it actually remembers things you've looked at, both in search and out of it. So the very act of LOOKING at those images gives them a higher google ranking for you than for someone who's never seen them before.

You guys are actually sabotaging your stated intentions by pouring too many incorrect accusations on top of a meaningful one. The effect is that the accusations as a whole will be dismissed.
I think this is a very good point. There are plenty of solid examples of Ramyb being a slimeball without trying to imply that literally everything he designs is stolen. This just creates a strawman for Ramy and his fans to knock down and claim victory.
There is no arguing that the vast majority of his work is derivative and commonplace, the uproar here should be about specific examples of him clearly stealing concepts from others.
Given what we know about his attutide and past (and current?) ethics there is no reasonable way anybody could excuse his repeated coincidences as innocent.
